This place is relatively low key and romantic. They have a nice menu of seafood and other Mexican food. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and drinks. This is a good go to restaurant for anyone and should be part of a visit to Tulum.

My girlfriend and I visited Cenzontle for dinner. We didn’t have a reservation but we didn’t have to wait for a table. We didn’t have starters but could easily have chosen 4 or 5 we liked - particularly the brussel sprouts. For mains, I had...More

We love experimenting with mexican flavors and rest of the world cuisine, twist's in conventional mexican dishes, or mexican twist's into traditional world known recipes. Freshly cut, muddle on the spot fruit are the main contents of our cocktailery. We focus in a full Tulum experience, great food, drinks, service and ambiance. Fundado en 2013.
