Good catch of the day. Small portions though. Crepe with nutella was very good and the brownie truffles too if you like the taste of mescal. A good spot

We had been to Casa Violeta a couple of years ago so I was looking forward to returning. With all the restaurants to try in Tulum, I wanted to go back to a place I had enjoyed a good meal.

Lovely restaurant within another property close to place at which we stayed. Very good food, great view and wonderful service. And the best cocktails we had (except for the ones we made ourselves, of course!)

Settings are important and this one is just perfect. Charming, comfortable and great food. I ordered the Fish Tacos, I'd say it was the most gourmet fish tacos I've ever eaten. The fish was seasoned beautifully and the sauce that was served with the fish was exotic and superb. I ordered a fresh fruit drink , coconut, banana, pineapple and... More

Dinner at Casa Violeta is a relaxed affair. The restaurant is right on the beach and has lovely views if you get a beachfront table. We had pizzas both times we visited and they were well cooked and tasty. The margueritas were good too.

My friend is gluten intolerant so we stuck to the appetizers here and they were incredible! We LOVED the unique service of the tortilla soup and the salad with zucchini was delicious! Mojitos are also quite tasty. You will enjoy. We heard the lunch there was also very delicious.

Not quite the same high level experience I had in 2012, but still an excellent dining experience next to the Caribbean Sea. Wonderful wine list for a Tulum Beach restaurant, and always worth a drive to the far end of Tulum Beach.
