Needed a bite to eat. No cell signal in the area and no idea how to find a good place to eat. Saw the happy hour sign and decided to stop here. The prices were out of control and they add the tip automatically, which means they can get away with bad service because there is no incentive to do... More

We had an excellent lunch and dinner. We tried quite a lot of dishes and everything was great, especially the steak tacos, guacamole, steak with sausage and peppers and filet mignon. We also had some pasta options one day which were very tasty. The chocolate soufflé was amazing.

One of the best meals we had and on the cheaper side. The staff is great, we ate here once for dinner and several times at the beach during the day. The chef is wonderful, he comes out periodically and checks in with the guest. Outside tables are much better.

Had the shrimp and fish tacos here - they are the best ones on the Yucatan. Reasonable prices, efficient service, food of a quality that you'd expect in a high end restaurant. This is the pick of Tulum eating

I had been here before 2 years ago. Went back for a last night dinner of our girls trip and it was spectacular. Given, we had a little luck in our favor in that we were first told they had sold out of lobster but then the lobster man came out of the ocean seconds later, it was magic. The... More

We stopped by Restaurant Piedra Escondida for lunch last week. The service and food were adequate. I had the grilled shrimp with rice and my wife had the fish. The meals were delivered quickly and were served hot.

We were staying at the Piedra and had a chance to experience their hospitality, cuisine and wine during our stay.
