“wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

We had a great dinner at Piedra Escondida. The food was amazing, they have a great chef and wine list, and we ate outdoors on the most beautiful beach in Tulum! Our server, Eduardo, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about food and wine. We highly recommend Piedra Escondida:)

“Great beach view.”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

This is one of our favorite restaurants. It is located right on the beach and the views are great. Sitting on the patio eating shrimp tacos and drinking melon margaritas is a real joy. We were able to stay and listen to some great flamenco/Spanish guitar while we werr there. A really nice place!

Reviewed 29 January 2012

Like many of the Tulum beach restaurants, Piedra Escondida is easy to miss. Don't (it's on the left about a km before the causeway as you go towards Punta Allen.) What we found was uniformly great food: fresh fish in garlic sauce, pesto, pasta with squid and other seafood, filet in wonderful greep papper (akin to the black peeper) sauce. Etc. .And a good selection of wines=-- mostly Italian. Everything more than fairly priced compared to the other better restaurants in the area. $60 for a dinner for two with wine was the average in the 5 dinners we ate there during our 8 day in the area. Also the entertainment was "sophisticated" --jazz inflected, etc. And the location tucked near some craggy rocks on the beach....I must stop now so I can bear to go out to the gray Ann Arbort evening.

“Gourmet presentation”
Reviewed 25 December 2011

This little gem of a restaurant is a real surprise. Food is beautifully presented, well prepared and served. Service is a little slow. Don't like the fact that tip is charged at 15%, as this reduces incentive for good service. Check your bill for errors. Oceanside.
