5 Star Quality & Creativity in Tulum Town – Doesn’t Get Better!

Take the “best of the best” restaurants on the beach side, plop it in the middle of Tulum Town and you have just walked into Unico! We’ve eaten here 4-5 times and can’t stay away when we’re craving a divine dining experience. Though we have a bucket list of a dozen or so more restaurants to try on the beach, and we’ve hit more than a few, when it comes time to choose again, we find ourselves returning to Unico.

Two point-outs: 

1. The 8 course tasting menu is a must for all foodies. Every course is simply perfect in size, flavor profile, its place among the 8 courses, freshness, creativity and quality. Nuff said! 

2. The sous vide dishes. If you aren’t familiar with this method of cooking, you are in for the most perfectly cooked protein dish you’ve ever eaten. Add to it an intimate knowledge of flavoring food and you’ve just hit the culinary pinnacle. There’s a reason why this cooking method is prevalent in every 5-star restaurant world-wide. To find it in Tulum Town was very unexpected and speaks to the love of food the owner, Brian and his brilliant team of chefs share.

As for the service staff, any one of them would fit right in working at a 5-star in Europe or the U.S. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Love the staff here!

The decor is understated, lovely and has a cool vibe. Grab a table by the window and watch the activity of the town. Very charming in my opinion and a comparable meal of this quality would easily be double or triple in the U.S. 

Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant. Not only the best for fine dining in town, but one of the very best including the best on the beach.

Thanks, Unico and wishing you the very best!
