We stayed at the hotel and had breakfast at Paladante every morning, and dined here a number of evenings as well. Paladante is located in the courtyard of the hotel Don Diego de la Selva in the south residential area in Tulum. The restaurant itself, is under a large Maya palapa surrounded by a beautifully maintained courtyard garden. It is... More

I never expected to have a fine dining experience in Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico until I came across the Paladante. The restaurant is located in the garden of the Don Diego De La Selva hotel.

In addition to the wonderful hotel experience and the beautiful jungle setting, they served up some of the most wonderful food I've ever eaten. Rabbit Terrine, the best seafood pasta I've ever had, and the rum cake were my favorites.

The first tip off that this wouldn't be up to French standards was that there were no specials. It looks like they cook the same couple of dishes day after day. For appetizers, we had a shrimp dish that was excellent and a salad that was good, but nothing special, falling short of similar we had at both Mezzanine and... More

Ambiance at Paladante is an eclectic mélange between a French Bistrot, a Caribbean hideaway and an awrad winning restaurant sans the attitude. The service is amicable and professional. The food, an honor to attend such an opportunity at Riviera Maya. I visited with partner and was immediately offered crisp, clean water and a fusionized goat cheese, avocado and fresh mushrooms...
