“Excellent food and drinks on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

My wife and I visited La Zebra along with two other couples in July. This was our first dinner out in Tulum, and was one of the best that we had all week. Our drinks were all delicious (serrano margarita anyone?), they had a nice selection of Mexican wines by the glass and by the bottle, and all of our dishes were really tasty. Even the vegetarian in our group really enjoyed her meal, and had several choices to choose from. The open air atmosphere on the beach was really phenomenal, and the evening breezes were really refreshing. Our service could've been a bit better, but overall, we had a really great experience here and would definitely return.

Highly recommended.

“Great Beach Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

La Zebra has a nice little beach bar in which you can spend your afternoon at the beach. When it is not too crowded they even let you use the beach loungers which are normally for hotel guests only.
Food and drinks are very good and in the afternoon also affordable. In the evenings it is also very nice but the food is more expensive. The best night to go there is Sunday. They have a Salsa Party and even offer free lessons. The music is very good and even if you don't know how to dance (like us) it is still an experience we can recommend

“Very nice beach setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Have dinner barefoot in the sand as tables and chairs set out on sand. Candles light your table and breeze refreshing. Sounds of waves music to your ears. Service great, food above average but not too cheap. We had a main of fish each and a drink each. A coffee each which was about US $5 and that's hefty. The total bill came to about US$80 plus tips so hardly any change back from US$100. You are better off paying in pesos as they tend to give you 1:1 for example US$80 is 800 pesos whereas money exchange is 12.25
Romantic setting, friendly staff and Italian owner but once is enough for us here. So many other places to try and cheaper too.

“Avoid if possible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

The place is nice but the food is mediocre and the beverages very poor. My daughter's coco fish was chewy. My tortilla soup was just OK. I also had a bad mojito and the pineapple juices were really bad.

“Good Option”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Excellent food. Service was not good as the restaurant was packed due to a large group of 20+ people. The view is nice and installations are discrete but cosy
