We enjoyed a four plus hour cooking class at Altamar and enjoyed sampling the appetizers, lunch and margaritas the chefs were making for us. Best sauces and yucatecan food we had on our entire trip.

Tried various places in Tulum town when we there and although we were the the only people in the place, being low season. A bit lacking in atmosphere. But I have to say we were impressed with the quality and taste of the food. I would say one of the best restaurants in Tulum. Go there.

AMAZING!!!
Went here based on the reviews from TA and was not disappointed.

This place is in town just on the corner of the main street, in a nice quiet location.

When we first arrived we were bought out a tasting plate on the house with dips and salsas and various foods such as cactus. It was great and even though we tried not to eat too much so we had room for our meal we couldnt help it.

We ordered the Cheviche and Shrimp Tacos for entree - both were the best we had.
For Mains we had the fish with rice and veg and the pot pie, again both were just to die for, the flavors in everything were just bursting and the food simple and fresh.

We wanted to come back again but they had closed for the weekend so missed out unfortunately.
We also heard they did cooking classes which would have been fantastic, as to learn how to balance flavors like that would have been great.

Do yourself a favor and eat here at least once...

Of and I forgot to mention our whole bill come to more than half the price we had been paying at similar standard restaurants on the beach - it was a great shock at the end of the night as we were not given a menu so had no idea what we were paying until we say it. Best way to end a meal.

Please ignore the snobbish reviews! This restaurant is amazing! Freshly caught and cooked seafood, great wine, an ok veggie selection and wonderful, warm service. This is where the local hoteliers eat, that says it all! Love this place :) also, atmospheric lighting not dark at all!
