PROS - This is a lovely restaurant in a jungle setting in Tulum. The good we had was excellent. My sister had fish that tasted amazing, my husband had a grilled beef dish, and I had their famous ribs, which truly were to die for. Service was very good - our waiter was friendly and pleasant. We shared the chocolate... More

Don´t be fooled, it is not that hard to get a table. The food is simply amazing, the presentation, the service and the place complete an amazing experience.

Can't say enough about this amazing restaurant, so I will keep it simple. It was without a doubt the most incredible meal I've ever had. Every bite a flavor explosion in your mouth! And the Mezcal cocktails are amazing too! A must go if you ever find yourself in Tulum ❤

We were a large group so we made a reservation few days in advance. Once we arrive there, there were no table available for us! We ended up having drinks at the bar next door. We waited for 1h30 to finally be able to sit... No commercial gesture or a drink or something has been offered by the place while... More

This restaurant is very good, and I have no complaints. The reason I gave it an average score is because it doesn't live up to the incredible hype. Again, it is a very good restaurant. However, on this strip of Tulum beach, there are a lot of very good restaurants, and the food here does not stand out exceptionally from... More

Book early, like 1 month early the place is busy! I can see how people can get frustrated with this place with wait times and rejections it's like one of those clubs that you love to hate.. sometimes you can get lucky too. We managed to add 2 people to our table with 15min to go until seating and we... More

We agree with other comments that this place does actually live up to its hype. It is a bit difficult to find if you're not staying in Tulum and we had to wait 45 minutes, even though we had a reservation, BUT, the sangria was delicious and the dinner was everything we had heard about! Don't forget that they only... More

Much like Roberta's built the Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn, Hartwood was the restaurant that built Tulum. Eric Werner and his wife Mya Henry opened the restaurant back in 2010 after leaving their jobs as a chef and PR-er in New York. Back in 2010, Tulum wasn't much to look at. Only a handful of hotels and restaurants, and almost 2... More

This is a must in Tulum. One of my friends made reservations three months in advance. We arrived and were seated promptly. A drink order was taken and we all tried the restaurant's homemade concoctions. The menu is scribbled on large black boards that are taken to each table. The waiter describes the dishes throughly. We tried many appetizers including... More

Hartwood is a very popular restaurant and thus it is a little challenging to snag a table. But it is worth the effort! We had a great experience, and one of the best meals we have had anywhere. Really, anywhere. Our meal: ceviche Yucatan, grilled prawns, pork ribs, grilled filet of Coronado. Perfectly prepared, delicious, and even though there were... More
