It's Italian food...in Mexico. The food was ok, but I just felt is was overpriced. I would recommend sharing the Caprese to start.

The restaurant is placed in a beautiful spot by Tulum beach. Boho chic style, beautiful details everywhere and the staff very attentive. The food was good. We had home made pasta and local fish. Overall a good experience but be weary, it does not come cheap....expect top London, NY prices for a casual meal by the beach.

Bustling, crowded Italian restaurant on the beach in Tulum. The food was quite good, but service was only so-so, and I was blown away by how expensive it was. Like many restaurants in Tulum, it was cash only, but at all of those other places, you would almost always have that amount of cash on you. At Margherita, if you... More

The place is just perfection. Beach shabby chic cute. We spoke to the owner, who let us know it has been the same menu for 17 years. He was so nice, and came over to introduce himself while we were waiting for our table. I had the fresh tomato pasta, which was light and tasty. We went at the end... More

Posada Margherita came highly recommended from friends and locals. At first my husband and I scoffed at the idea of having Italian food in Mexico, but the more we heard about it, the more certain we were that we should at least try it. Upon entering Posada you walk through an almost magical garden walk way, lined with tropical plants... More

This is a magical atmosphere with potted plants everywhere, colorful wooden doors, + nooks with lounge style seating. The countless colorful glass bottles of every size and shade of blue, potted cactus and succulents and a zen vibe made our time here unforgettable! The green juice is top notch and everything on the menu is delicious! The boutique is BEYOND!... More

Tulum specialises in restaurants that have amazing atmosphere and Posada Margherita is one of the best in my opinion. The restaurant itself is gorgeous, up a winding path and hidden out of sight. The restaurant is right on the beach, so it would be a great day time spot. We came for dinner though and still thought it was magical.... More

A lot of people had recommended this place, so I was very excited to finally taste what everyone was talking about. unfortunately, it was nothing near of what I thought it will be. My friend ordered pasta and it was so salty she couldn't even finish it, I on the other hand ordered fish and it was ok but we... More

Funky place right on the beach but that was probably the best part. Very limited menu. Most of us had one of the four pasta choices yes there are only four. The noodles were like a wide fettuccine and was made fresh which was nice but you are limited to either a tomato sauce, vegetables tossed with garlic, shrimp or... More
