The view is amazing! The food and service are too. As a local, I used to go there frequently. Now that I've moved back home, I miss it all the time!

Great service and excellent food. Like all places in Mexico, the servers were excellent and went above and beyond to meet our requests.

This was a great place to hang out with friends for lunch and have a few drinks while taking in the beautiful surroundings of the beach and ocean. Food and service were top notch! Definitely good and authentic Mexican fare!

Everywhere we ate in Tulum, the food was spectacular, this was just OK. Not bad, but not exceptional. Just so, so. Also, the first drink my friend ordered had pineapple juice in it, and just tasted off. We smelt it, and it was as if something in the drink went bad. There's other places much better than this. They also... More

I didn't have the chance to eat here last spring on my first trip to Tulum, but was looking forward to the fish tacos that had been recommended to me by a friend. I did however take a peek at the restaurant last year and it was a really neat space. Sorry to see... More

My friends and I stayed at the Plaza Azul Hotel, where breakfast at the restaurant is included. The breakfast foods were very fresh and always included fruit and fresh fruit juice. I also had the guacamole and a burrito. Both were good and the prices reasonable. However, the polite and friendly staff is what makes this restaurant stand out. Thanks... More

Description
The restaurant at Playa Azul is a great place to hang out and have an ice-cold beer, specialty cocktail, or a fruit smoothie, watch the surf and all the shades of blue that the Caribbean provides, and share a fish and shrimp ceviche before you head back out to your beach chair for some sun.

Everything comes together with food - chiles, salsas, your favorite Mexican dishes are all served with attention to detail.

Enjoy our ever-changing array of art installations as well!
