This restaurant was recommended to us by a local boutique hotel owner. The place is unique and not crowded at the time we went for dinner. The menu was small and chosen from a chalkboard of specials listed. Our waiter laughed when we placed our order for two entrees for my husband and myself and a cheese plate ordered before... More

Great dinner, attentive staff, gorgeous beach access and so charming. Only 5 tables and a preset menu. Cocktails are giant as is the wine pour. Easily the best meal we ate in Tulum. Best Tuna Tartare I've ever had/

Nice, romantic restaurant on the beach - slightly different feel than most - maybe the name encourages imagination / poetrybut the cats walking around to too. Owner is italian and cuisine is too; very much a seafood place. No fixed menu - changes everyday. Go if you like pasta with seafood and the likes - if looking for meat, or... More

The place is very nice, charming, by the ocean, comfortable and cozy. The food is very good, they always have different stuff, made fresh etc...what I don't like about this place is since they do not have a menu because the food is from the day, they will just charge you whatever they want. I know it is kind of... More

We were impressed with everything, starting with the design of the restaurant (all blue and white and very stylish), the view and the seafood! The lobster was great, not very cheap, but still worth it!

What a lovely spot for lunch. Low key, small curated menu. We had a fantastic salad and salmon carpaccio.

Visited here on a Sunday evening and had an incredible meal. The only other Italian place I've visited here in Tulum is Posada Margherita which is one of my favorites, so was looking for another Italian staple to go to. The reason you visit Hemmingway is for the Mariscada dish. It's a seafood dish filled with lobster, crab, shrimp and... More

What a beautiful place to eat REALLY well cooked food. Right on the beach. Beautiful, fun loving everything. The restaurant interior, the deck and even the little bathroom puts a smile on your face. I tipped 20% and my wife got mad at me that I didn't tip 30%. That's how much she loved it!

Description
Small and nice restaurant where Hemingway and 'recommended reservation for dinner. The Chef Luke and Nicola, Italian, will present you with love and care with their fish dishes, homemade pasta, seafood, bread, cake and a nice selection of desserts always home-made with fresh ingredients.We use only fresh fish, ripe tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil. For breakfast in the morning, bread, dessert of the day and homemade jam. The restaurant is ocean front and has a nice big terrace on the beach! Only 5 tables.
