The Latest!

Wonderful Food

We were two families holidaying over Christmas in Akumal and I booked Unico for our Xmas meal. The restaurant was bright and inviting and the waiter was very friendly. We had not asked for a particular menu for our meal but the waiter said that as we were a large party (9) they had prepared an eight course meal for us. The portions were small but the food was truly delicious and had obviously been freshly prepared. Each course was mouth watering and although we are used to large American size servings most of us agreed that at the end of the meal we were pleasantly full. It was a festive meal and we had beer, wine and cocktails. The price at the end of the meal was justified, I think, given the quality of the food. The only difficulty was that Brian,preferred that we pay in cash and that was awkward as it involved one of our party having to go and find an ATM as we did not have such a large amount of money in cash. I wish we had realized that credit cards were not accepted before so that we did not have to wait around after the meal for our friend to return with the necessary funds. However, I would definitely return to Unico if we are in the area again and look forward to trying out some of the other menu items.

Excellent Food, Average Atmosphere

Mussels the other night were outstanding. Lobster ravioli is delicious. Ditto arugula salad with grilled shrimp. And the garlic bread is out of this world. Local sea bass is excellent. We can’t say enough good things about the food and service at Unico. I am not sure why a previous reviewer noted that portion sizes were small- we shared the lobster ravioli, and I can’t imagine eating it alone. Brian (the chef) puts out delicious food, and Ivan’s service is professional and welcoming.

As others have mentioned, there is street noise from the steady parade of passing trucks and busses. While I would prefer a less well-lit restaurant, others will likely find being able to easily read the menu a plus. We will be back.

New GEM in Tulum Town-Delicious!

Único is a fantastic new Restaurant in Tulum town. Loved every bite of everything we ordered. Great service, great food, great place. The restaurant itself is darling though the location is less than ideal but very easy to find. Have dinner here when in Tulum! You won’t regret it. (Closed Wednesday)
Looking forward to returning to Unico, Thank you

New York in Tulum

If you look for mexican cuisine you are at the wrong place. This is good international cuisine- well prepared and tasty. We had the grouper and the red snapper and beets as appetizer- everything pleased! 
A cook from New York- but no New York prices!

Excellent Food and Service

This is a top class restaurant with outstanding food and service. It’s clear that there has been so much care and attention gone into the menu and the quality of food – what more could you want from a chef!

Amazing Find!

As a frequent visitor to the area, I have dined in many of Tulum’s restaurants over the past 12+ years. My friend discovered Unico last month when browsing restaurants for us on tripadvisor. We decided to try it and are still talking about the delicious food, lovely wine selection and exceptional service! The menu offers entrées of beef, chicken, fish and vegetarian options; all created and prepared by a master chef who recently left New York and moved to Tulum. Each part of the dinner was equally delicious; from the homemade bread accompanied by the chef’s own hummus spread creation, to the exquisite desserts. If your travels take you near Tulum, you won’t want to miss this delightful dining experience!

Just Great

Found out about unico on tripadvisor, and as everybody says the food was just great. Very friendly staff, and the chef Brian seemed really passionate about cooking. Me and my father had the mussels and fries and I really recommend it!
