Cenzontle is so special.. has a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Food is i guess fusion mexican ?. and is delicious although I tend to eat just a starter at the cute little speakeasy bar as I am often travelling solo. The Duck Tacos are...More

Small but delicious menu with good attention to detail. The pequino peppers and the octopus starters were fabulous. Equal attention paid to veggie and non veggie dishes. Sophisticated cocktails. Expensive, but we have discovered that everything in Tulum is!

Food, drinks, ambiance, service, basically everything was perfect! I'm not a vegetarian but I opted for the pumpkin vegetarian dish and it has to be one of the best meals I've had. You have to go here when in Tulum

WOW! What a remarkable meal! The ambience, service and most importantly the food, was truly fantastic. I had the Fish of the day, which was a Red Snapper, prepared to perfection, and my daughter had the Ribs, which so many other reviews have raved about....More

I love the "indoors outside" decor with living room lamps in the garden. Lovely friendly staff, I went alone and with friends and they were great. The food is always good - it changes I think according to availability but I enjoyed everything - especially...More

We wondered around early Tues evening in Tulum where it appears a lot of places don't open on this day so we were pleased to find this place. It was raining heavily outside and they had a lot of undercover seating available. The decor is...More

Cenzontle was my 2nd favorite dinner in Tulum (food wise). The atmosphere at Cenzontle was my favorite. It's charming and warm (and warm in more ways than one ha!). It's on the jungle side of Tulum, and all the restaurants on the jungle side are...More

We love experimenting with mexican flavors and rest of the world cuisine, twist's in conventional mexican dishes, or mexican twist's into traditional world known recipes. Freshly cut, muddle on the spot fruit are the main contents of our cocktailery. We focus in a full Tulum experience, great food, drinks, service and ambiance. Fundado en 2013.
