This places serves really ingenious cocktails with local twist. The setting is very good. The food os good too (particularly grilled avocado). Yet service is super slow, careless, indifferent, nonchalant. And when the bill comes, you understand the whole purpose of the establishment. They serve...More

This was the first of our two more expensive dining experiences in Tulum, the 2nd one being Kitchen Table (see review) I could only get a reservation on Open Table for 6:30 the night of our dinner, although many tables sat empty during our time...More

Sipping creative and delicious cocktails in a bar nestled in the jungle to a sexy soundtrack of moody music at Gitano was a highlight of our trip to Tulum!

Loved the atmosphere and food, but it was a 4 hour dinner for us to eat a pre-fix. Best to go here if you have a lot of time to spend for a meal.

This restaurant is GREAT, with fine dining and excellent ambience (especially on Thursdays). The seating area is in an open space surrounded by the jungle with tiki torches, chandeliers hanging from trees, and disco balls. The restaurant transforms into a bar/club late at night. The...More

The cocktails and DJ were 10/10. I am from Nebraska and the ingredients in the cocktails, presentation and variety blew me out of the water! We sure don't have anywhere around here that can make cocktails near this good. They are expensive but worth it!...More

I enjoyed this place. Outdoor seating at its best. Bring bug spray though because you are going to need it. Food was good. Service was good. The only thing that stood out is the ambiance of the establishment. The prices were high for the what...More

Hi, Coming in May and trying to figure out how much $ to bring. How much is a drink or meal here on average? If someone could give me the estimate for a fish dinner ($25?) and then a cocktail ($10) that would be great! I guessed the numbers included, not sure how far off I am.

I know Tulum isn't really credit card friendly and most businesses/restaurants take cash. Does anyone know if US dollars are accepted at places like Gitano or surrounding restaurants? Ive been down to Tulum before and it never seemed to be a problem as long as you did the conversion. Is it more strict with using the peso now?

Highly recommend exchanging US dollars for Pesos at the airport - you will most likely get the best rate. Also, you can use their ATMs there and take out Pesos. Gitano takes CC though.
