If you visit Tulum you have two ways to access the beach. Either you fight the traffic and the crowds going north El Paraiso, or you have drinks and meals at one of the many hotels, restaurants and watering holes that control every inch of access to the south beach. We arrived for lunch at La Zebra close to 3... More

I was lucky enough to have a big dinner party here and the service was impeccable. You can't go wrong if you stop by for the Sunday night salsa party but no matter when you go you're sure to have a wonderful meal and a beautiful view. It was perhaps a little too children friendly for my taste but for... More

The best fish tacos al pastor in Tulum :) We've been coming here for the past 5-6 years and it never disappoints, the restaurant serves great food all day long. The waiters are always friendly and service great, they are often quick and don't make mistakes. Don't miss it.

My roommate and I were staying in the area and came here for the beach/restaurant/service 3 days in a row! Our waiter's name was Primo, and he was the absolute best. We became quick friends with him and he took amazing care of us. As soon as we walked up to the bar/beach area his was so helpful. While we... More

We lucked into two for one cocktails at the Mulberry Bar while we had an amazing taco lunch at La Zebra. Really good service and the DJ was a fun addition.

La Zebra serves a delicious dinner and amazingly fresh ceviche. Came here with my sister and we loved it so much, we came back for their Sunday salsa dance party. Great service and a great place to relax and watch the sun go down after a day at the beach.

We were staying at the Alaya next door and decided to try la Zebra one night. We loved it so much we went a second time! Drinks are very good and this is real Mexican food (I'm Mexican). It's a bit expensive but if you have to pick a nice place for a romantic dinner or special occasion this is... More

I was traveling with 2 teenagers and this was the spot they requested for a second visit. I preferred the lunch menu, only because the dinner menu 'tried too hard' in my opinion. All the restaurants in Tulum are competing for hipster foodie celebrity chef status... but I think La Zebra should just go ahead and do their conservative, touristy... More

This restaurant was recommended by us by our B & B in Isla Mujeres and we finally went at the end of our trip. A bit disappointed we didn't come sooner because we loved the food, it was SO good! I had a vegetarian burrito and fries and my husband had a chicken burrito and ceviche and we finished our... More

Located right on the stunning Tulum beach, La Zebra is dedicated to fresh, delicious modern Mexican beach cuisine. And our bar features fresh juices, smoothies and a range of now famous cocktails (try our fresh sugar cane juice mojitos, or the La Zebra margarita with fresh pineapple juice and a hint of ginger). Sunday nights we have a salsa dance party with live Cuban salsa band....So come dance under the stars with us!
