I'm a huge Rancho San Eric fan: so, expect nothing but superlatives for this chef, their tables, the cuisine and total experience. I've been eating here for 5 years -- it's the best Manhattan or LA or Chicago has to offer -- the very best -- aside the Caribbean in Tulum at the hands of an exceptional food artist. Don't... More

We went to Hechizo for our final meal after 7 nights in Tulum. The meal was great. The chef personally came to our table to take our order. We explained that we would be sharing everything and asked him to course the meal appropriately. He did a wonderful job. The restuarant is slightly "old school" compared to some of the... More

My husband and I celebrated our last night of our 25th anniversary at this restaurant. Reservations are recommended but they will seat you if they are able. We sat outside among candles and strung lights and listened to the waves. It was windy, to be expected in Tulum, but it was beautiful. The service is impeccable. The staff are very... More

Exceptional service & attention to explaining the composition of the menu. Food well presented & beautifully cooked. Paired with good [& good value] Mexican wine. All this whilst sitting outside on a warm evening under the stars - shame we were travelling back to the UK next day!

We happened upon Hechizo during one of our beach walks while staying in Tulum and decided to visit the next evening. I was blown away by the high quality of the food, wine and service. On our first visit we began with a white truffle pasta prepared by the very talented Chef Stefan. Intensely flavoured it left us wanting much... More

We saw Hechizo's menu as we were walking on the beach. In Tulum, it's better to have low expectations for the cuisine but in this case, we were stunned by the high quality and beautiful atmosphere. Chef Stefan clearly puts artistry, care, and imagination into each dish. We began with a white truffle tagliatelli that smelled almost too intoxicating to... More

Why would you line up on your vacation to get a maybe reservation at a hipster joint, full of posers trying to get on the latest bandwagon? This place takes reservations, and the food, ocean views, service, table settings, drinks and experience are in another class than the "hot" places to go in Tulum. The food is much better than...

Stefan, thank you for one of the best meals we have ever had! Gloria's lobster, gnocchi was absolutely out of this world and my braised lamb shank was amazing: fall off the bone, melt I your mouth amazing! And as I told you in person, scallops were best I've had anywhere and the fettuccini in truffle sauce was indescribably good!... More
