“Perfect beachfront setting with great margaritas”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My husband and I visited this restaurant after checking out the Mayan Ruins in Tulum. We saw a recommendation on Trip Advisor and went with it! Totally worth the 15 minute cab ride (which wasn't terribly expensive). We sat on the beach and it was so relaxing and peaceful. We were staying in Playa del Carmen where the beach is nice, but just a bit rowdy. This was just perfect. We did get approached by a few kids trying to sell us stuff, but they dispersed quickly after a polite "no". We got the shrimp ceviche which was delicious, but also HUGE. The smaller serving is more than enough for two to share. The margaritas were also fantastic. We tried the namesake - Zebra, as well as the habanero one. Both were fantastic! Before we left we both decided if we make it back to the Mayan Riviera, we would stay at their hotel! The beach alone was worth it. The front desk staff was also very helpful as well.

“Wow....just wow. Great food, cold beer and a stunning beyond words view.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We had shrimp tacos and a chicken burro and the food was superb. The service was also just as great. We had questions about the menu and all were answered graciously and in perfect English.

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Perfect tacos, nachos like you've never had and AMAZING drinks! This is a great place to go in the late afternoon for amazing cocktails and nibbles.

The staff is GREAT! Fernando and Jonas will make you feel like a member of the family. They let you relax yet are fast when you need them to be. La Zebra is the whole package!

I highly recommend La Zebra for any meal or cocktail hour AND if you can stay there even better!!!

“Incredible food, great value, super service”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

When we stay at La Zebra, we end up easting almost all of our meals at the La Zebra Mexican Kitchen. We've tried many other restaurants in Tulum, but keep coming back to La Zebra. Whether in the restaurant, on the deck, or in lounge chairs by the sea, it's consistently provided great food and atmosphere.

“Salsa!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We had dinner at La Zebra on "Salsa Night"! They had a live Salsa Band with tourists and locals dancing on a deck on the beach...it was very cool! Had fresh Grouper for dinner...it was very spicy and very good. The Mayan tortillas were amazing! Service was good as well.
