Was our last day and Tulum and were expecting more from this place considering that all the other restaurant from the Rosa Negra were really good. Even tough everyone was really nice unfortunately service wasn’t good overall.

El lugar de restaurante muy mal para ser uno de esa supuesta categoría; muy mal servicio, en esta época de COViD los meseros con muy poca precaución cubriendo sólo su boca y dejando al descubierto la nariz en su mayoría , el gerente o encargado sin tapabocas de plano. Entiendo que también es beach club, pero el personal debe hacerte sentir seguro.
La comida de sabor muy buena con una carta casi igual que Rosa Negra. Pero la verdad no era lo que esperaba. No me sentí a gusto por las faltas de precaución y el pésimo servicio.

Beautiful spot, great photo ops. Food was outstanding. Staff was very nice. Only problem was beyond the control of the restaurant. Apparently in Tulum, restaurants can not serve alcohol after 5 pm on Sunday’s. Meal would have been better with wine.

First and foremost I can say that we had overall an great time at the beach club! The service was friendly and nice and accommodating. The music was amazing, good mix of songs and a good vibe!

We were spending the day there as we were celebrating an special occasion - the birthday of my boyfriend, which I mentioned multiple times when texting with the team already in January and also mentioning on that day with the host

While all others (probably about 5 other birthdays) got an token of a special occasion of an piece of cake and a nice gesture of taboo restaurant and team he was totally left out even tho all people who received it had only “regular” sun chairs while we paid for cabanas and even on the top of the minimum spend of consumption leaving over $300 there. Also while getting the bill they told us we were only able to add a certain percentage of tip (10%, 20% and so on) while we think people should get tips as we feel like the service was like and not being “forced”by it.

I also shred my feedback with one of the staff members not in a totally negative way (this is just a feedback and not a complaint!!) however I work in the service and hospitality industry myself and feel like feedback should be shared and an opportunity to keep guests coming and being recommended should not be missed. He was understanding and offered to bring something right away but that’s not what I wanted as we already paid and we’re ready to leave and get ready for dinner and did not wanted to stay for just getting a “cake for free” as they had about 7hrs to do something nice for him and recognize his Birthday.

The restaurant itself looks beautiful, Great atmosphere. food was good but not exceptional call especially for the price. Service was OK at the most , call we had a dirty plates from our appetizers and they brought the main dish. Nobody did anything about it I had to ask to get a new plate ,They brought another main dish five minutes later we still have no plates , another five minutes and they trying to prep a third main course dish next to our table while the other food is already cold still no plates I already asked them for the plates three times instead of grabbing a plate from another empty table for the first time the guy went back into the kitchen still came back without plates. Then finally the guy who is preparing a last main course next to our table told the other guy to give us a plate so the guy gave us a plate but no silverware ,So about 15 minutes after receiving your first main course dish we finally got three plates but no silverware I have to mention that we were sharing the food so the food that they give it to us was sitting in the middle of the table by the time we receive silverware everything was cold. The last dish that we had there was prepared right by our table it was sold crusted fish the guy said that he removed all the bones basically every single bag that I took it was one or two bones in each bite. Once again the restaurant itself is gorgeous the guy playing on the electric violin also great experience but $280 for three plates basically cold fish full of bones was not what I expected from this place. Also lack of communication between the stuff, we were asking for ingredients to be added to the raw beef tartare but the guy preparing it was sending the ingredients back to the kitchen without even consulting with us. We also had some food that’s supposed to be packed to go, But they never give it to us ,so when I’m paying three times more for the beef tartare than what I pay in San Diego (which is not cheap)

Food was good but very expensive especially relative to other restaurants with comparable menus.

Service was very subpar. Restaurants as near empty with loads of staff sitting around yet we were barely waited on. We asked to have our food wrapped to go and waited 10 minutes before having to signal to a waiter that we were ready to the bill. Then the waiter hovered over me as I looked at the receipt and calculated the tip. Made me very uncomfortable.

Would have expected much better service given the price of the food.

Strap in because it’s going to be a long review about a restaurant that claims to have class but severely lacks in that department.

I wanted to take my girlfriend out to a nice dinner at what was supposed to be a nice restaurant. We arrived and were given a table next to a group of younger men. We were seated and given great service by our waiter. We began eating our appetizers and the food was satisfactory. We noticed other company being seated around us. Two older couples in their 50s. Two younger girls then walk over to the table of younger men and began talking. At that point it began to become unruly, egregious, and honestly disgusting. One of the girls took her top off, quite literally exposed her breasts to the younger men. They obviously enjoyed this by their reaction but mind you myself, my girlfriend, and two other couples are attempting to have a lovely candle lit dinner at what is advertised as a 4+ star rated restaurant. You would think the staff would ask them to stop or leave but they noticed and took no action. Two minutes pass and now the other girl has decided she was not getting enough attention and stands on the table to begin what can only be called strip tease dancing. The staff did not make a move until finally the manager of the establishment came out two minutes into her impromptu cabaret. He claims he asked them to leave after but it seemed to be more of a don’t dance on the tables talk. We were clearly upset with the ambiance. We were led to believe this restaurant was going to provide us a great service with the obvious high prices and mood they attempted to set. But they did not meet these expectations.
Even worse so when I called the manager over after the ordeal I said I would like to leave he told me we had to still pay for our dinner that we were not even served.

This all seems hard to believe but truthfully we were let down.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT COME HERE IF YOU WISH TO A NICE DINNER OUT. Go elsewhere.
