Great food – Great Service

The best food I have had since coming to tulum. The service was fantastic, very quick and very attentive.

The location is unfortunate as it is on a busy road frequented by buses and lorries but the food more than makes up for it.

Prices are about the same as anywhere around 50-80 pesos for a starter and 120-200 pesos for a main.

We will be coming back before we leave!

Amazing food and friendly staff

We live in Tulum, so we visit Único pretty regularly. The food is always outstanding and we rarely order the same thing twice (be sure to try the specials!). Chef Brian and his wife are very friendly and always take the time to come say hi to us. You must visit Único while you’re in Tulum!

Excellent food, the best ever service!

This restaurant is really worthwhile! The food was great, the service even better. We came here for dinner. Romantic atmosphere and excellent courses, we will come back!


 can’t even begin to explain how amazing this food was 
From the starters ( we shared are few ) to the veg lasagne was truly delicious.
Cocktails were fab.
And service was great, we even got recommendations from the owner/chef himself 
Couldn’t rate this place higher 
It’s a must when in Tulum 
One of the best meals I have ever eaten

Wonderful meal with the family

I have to add to the chorus of good reviews. We stopped in with a family of 6 late one evening and had a wonderful meal outside. What the scenery lacks in ambiance, the food and service more than compensate. Our kids could find something on the menu and each of the 4 adults tried something different. All of it was fresh and fun. We also liked that the chef came out to ask us about the dinner.

A wonderful find

I spent a week in Akumal with friends in April and every night we explored new restaurants and some old favorites. Unico was by far the best of all. Food was fresh, creative and absolutely delicious! The owner and his wife, along with the staff were warm and friendly and very helpful with explanations and suggestions. There wasn’t enough they could do for us. As one of the other reviewers stated, if the Brian, the owner goes back to New York, it is Tulum’s loss. Keep him here.
I think the only downside is the location since it doesn’t afford any scenic views, but once you are inside it is wonderful. Don’t miss out.

Wonderful evening

Unico in Tulum, a delightful spot for a lovely meal. Surprisingly varied menu for its size. Interesting and delicious fusion of local dishes and ingredients with a modern palate. Something interesting and easy for adults as well as kids. Charming and easy setting, and the best margaritas we had during our trip. The hosts – husband and wife – went out of their way to make sure we were welcomed and enjoying our meal. Just great. Steve & Gretchen, San Francisco.


My girlfriend and I were just hungry and walked into the first restaurant we saw and found this total gem! The food is amazing and the staff very friendly.
It was so good we went back the next night!
It may not be the cheapest restaurant in Tulum but it is worth every penny.
Take your special some one here for a special night out, you won’t regret it :)



wow . . . that simple. Go there. Food was fabulous, staff was superb . . . only downside is nearby road . . . but, Go There . . . .

Best meal of our vacation!

Unico is an amazing find! The meal we had was absolutely the best of our 10 day vacation! Unico offers gourmet meals…done well…with something for everyone on the menu! We had dinner for a family of 5 including our picky eater son. The service was fantastic, the food was fresh and incredibly prepared/presented. The owner Brian very skilled and friendly. Loved the goat cheese/beet salad, the yellow mackerel flavorful and very tender, and the Sangria was some the best ever. The portions are such that you can order an appetizer, meal, and still have room for one of the amazing desserts.

The location is great if you are in the Tulum area and just 5 minutes down the street (very easy to locate) from the Tulum Archaeological site. Also a great stop if you are on your way back to the coast from Coba, Valladoidolid, or Chichen Itza– just at the corner in Tulum where 180 and 307 intersect.

Brian…if you ever return to the US…consider Maryland!
