I went to La Zebra for dinner one night and the food was ok. The service was great. However the ceviche had too much lime juice and octopus entree was uneventful.

With our stay in the hotel Mi Amor one night we had the chef´s table dining in the La Zebra Beach Restaurant. The chef Eleazar Bonilla gives you an amazing insight of the mexican kitchen in a 3 star Michelin quality. It was an extremely explosion of taste and flavor in your mouth. All was perfect decorated and a highlight... More

Sunday night dinner. Live salsa band on the beach. Great cocktails. I'm vegetarian, and they made the chocolate mole dish vegetarian for me. Good service. Perfect spot for star-gazing or night swimming after dinner.

Ate here several times during our stay. Location can't be beat. Food and drinks are some of the best in Tulum. I still crave their tortilla soup and salsas. La Zebra was a standout for sure.

La Zebra is large, airy, open and has a hip vibe without being offputting - great decor. We had appetizers, tacos and drinks and everything was great. It's family friendly so dine later if you don't want to be near kids.

The food at La Zebra was a culinary delight with excellent flavor combos and creative presentation. The atmosphere was superb with a beautiful view of the ocean and nice music. They were one of the few restaurants near our hotel that accepted credit cards. (If you are spending time in Tulum, bring plenty of pesos). Since we didn’t bring much... More

Beautiful hotel and restaurant! We are staying at the sister hotel Mezzanine. The shrimp tacos were so good. We also had an appetizer with chorizo that was also very good. Service was excellent!

Located right on the stunning Tulum beach, La Zebra is dedicated to fresh, delicious modern Mexican beach cuisine. And our bar features fresh juices, smoothies and a range of now famous cocktails (try our fresh sugar cane juice mojitos, or the La Zebra margarita with fresh pineapple juice and a hint of ginger). Sunday nights we have a salsa dance party with live Cuban salsa band....So come dance under the stars with us!
