“Fantastic Rehearsal Dinner”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We have been vacationing in Tulum for the past three years and go there for the casual and no-frills experience.

However, with 30 family members flying in from around the US, the grooms folks wanted to treat everyone to a special night before the wedding.

Hechizo was fantastic for this. Chef Stefan Schober and his Pastry Chef wife Ying-Hui Thai were friendly, thoughtful and attentive when developing the (food and wine) menu and the execution was even better.

It was a European quality evening with an excellent location, chef, service, food and wine.

The cocktails on the patio over-looking the beach followed by the three course meal complete with warm chocolate souffle made this crowd (that eats at top restaurants in SF, DC, NY and BOS) very happy.

Chef Stefan was wonderful to everyone throughout the evening, he even made up beds for the young kids near the dining area.

We can't say enough great things about the whole experience.

Enjoy!

“Top notch”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

This is not your average restaurant in Tulum or on The Mayan Riviera. The service is excellent, they were there for everything you needed but never overbearing. The drinks were delicious, but note that they have a limited scope of what they will make, as they could not accommodate one of the requests at our table for a certain cocktail. Also the martini was served in a tiny glass, but the other drinks were regular sizes.The food was delicious, from appetizer to entrees, and dessert was to die for! Highly recommend.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

What an incredible dining experience! Started with the best margarita of our trip. Had the prix fixe offering and everything about it was perfect; flavors, presentation and portion size. The service was truly outstanding. The surroundings are beautiful. What a gem this place is! Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a meal here.

“Excellent Ambiance and Food”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We live in the Riverva Maya in the winter months so we have experience many of the top restaurants in the area. This is one of the best. The service and the blending of the different flavors was outstanding. We start with two different salad, watermelon with goat cheese and roasted beets with blue cheese. Both were excellent. We then split a scallop starter that was light but had many different flavors blended together. I had the Ahi tuna and my wife had the red snapper. Both of these dishes were also excellent. We order two different desserts, Chocolate Fondant and the Almond cake. For the chocolate lover the dark chocolate flavor was intense but delightful. The Almond cake was lighter but had a wonderful blend of the cinnamom, clove, almond and apricot.

“Yum!”

We had an incredible dinner. The black cod was unbelievable. The salad and salmon appetizer with a fresh poached egg were delicious as well. We will be back...
