Opening directly onto the beach, our three-story clubhouse serves as the central point for guests to eat, drink, and relax. Moro, the ground floor restaurant helmed by Chef Federico Cappi, serves the freshest ingredients the area has to offer, and has seating for both large groups and intimate dinners. Modern and relaxed, the clubhouse is adjacent to the beachside bar, where guests can sip cocktails late into the night.

This was our best dinner in a year (las one was two star Michelin). The four dishes we ordered were conceived with audacity, local ingredients, Mexican traditions, and perfectly prepared. This is a huge creative step up from even the best tacos, empanadas, etc. On top of that our waiter Alexi, a local tulumnense, was very kind and helpful. More ambient light wouldn’t hurt, but the food, wow!!

We arrived by taxi with three adults and two children ages 10 and 12 with reservations made a t least a month ago. We were immediately told it was an adult only setting. I said that was not clearly visible on the website or I would not have booked. The man said I did not put down that I had two kids and if I had I would have known. Really? There is no option for kids on the Open Table booking- just how many people. He offered nothing, not even the name of a close by restaurant. I asked and the answer is, “I don’t know.” He did not offer to call a nearby restaurant to make up for the mistake, nor to refund our taxi fare or to callus a taxi back to our hotel (since he did not know of a restaurant that allowed kids?), He offered not even the slightest bit of an apology. We have had wonderful dinners and service at Gitano, Nu, and every other establishment we have eaten at on this trip. This has been the sole disappointment. The utter rudeness of the host staff was not what anyone would expect in Tulum. I would never recommend this establishment and will actively tell my friends not to go. There are so many fabulous restaurants in Tulum with amazing staff. This is not worth anyone’s time.

Habitas is a beautiful hotel and the restaurant Moro is lovely! You can enjoy a seat at a table or sit on the ground on cushions. The food is delicious, combines new and interesting flavors and is well executed.

Beautiful beautiful place and service couldn't be nicer. First, after having travelled all over Mexico, it is sad but true that the cuisine of the Yucatan is very so-so by comparison. Dishes were interestingly unusual, but perhaps just a little too.. (for example when could have been a perfect octopus dish was syrupy sweet) Our Argentine waiter was wonderful.
Why I would not go back: incessant trance music which was like fingernails on a blackboard for. Then they keep using incense pots--supposedly for ambiance. I choked throughout the meal. If I want incense, I'll go to church. I suspect I'm too old for New Age.

Proposed to my girlfriend here and the team really hooked it up. I contacted them a few days in advance and they had everything set up for a private balcony dinner. Candles, champagne, music, ambiance. This is probably the best restaurant experience I've ever had! We enjoyed it so much we came back the next day to hang out at their beach club. We will be back!

Moro at Habitas was easily the best meal we had in Tulum. Whilst on the slightly pricier side, the food was incredible and worth the money. Burrata starter was to die for, as were both the Yucatan pig and prawn mains. Would 100% recommend

This place is amazing by eating at the restaurant you are treated as if you are a guest which was really nice the food was all really good and creative. Amazing service and beautiful atmosphere. For a meal and two drinks was about $100 so on the expensive side but very much worth it for the experience. Make a reservation then you feel better about knocking on the unmarked door clearly meant to discourage ppl from coming in off the street.

Overated place, stake stinking food. Manager got us stake smelly fish and took it back allowing me to order something else on menu. And then he charged me for both dishes trucking me saying he can’t cancel the fish. Then he started to shout at us and I left there crying. On my anniversary today. Horrible horrible experience. That manager served me Room temps rutu really fica cola and it’s 85 degrees in tulum. He said he goes by hand cold coke, so least he could do is not charge for that coke, or that stake fish. So we were made to pay for everything, and he yelled at us. Please note he took my fish fish away allowing me to order something else. Why take fish away? They should refund us $40 extra that they charged, they ought to be ashamed of treating g their customers this badly.

DON'T eat at this restaurant!! The food is fine, but the waiters let you make your creditcard transactions multiple times, and they refuse you to refund it when you contact them. Even when it was very clear that the transactions were erroneous (they withdrew 3 times the same amount), they don't refund you. The food is not worth paying it 3 times...

Gem of the jungle in every possible way.

Very few restaurants get to provide outstanding service while ensuring the food is even better. From the outside, especially at night, one can’t really expect much from this place as it’s very simple and even easy to miss. But once you are inside and especially when you first see the restaurant after passing through the resort you know you are in for a magical night.
Our seating host was genuinely gracious and welcomed us in a very delightful manner.
The ambiance is simply breathtaking, with very minimalist decor showcasing respect of the Mayan jungle and Tulum beach.
From drinks to each appetizer and every entree, it was a treat for the sight and taste.
Octopus with sweet potato and beet pure was my favorite. Unique flavors blending perfectly together.
Had a memorable night and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy a night out in tulum.
