I truly enjoyed spending my birthday evening at Taboo. The ambiance was amazing, the service and food was definitely delightful. The best part was the violinist. I was an absolute of awe of his talent. Thank you I will definitely be back!
Siempre excelente !
Muy agradable el lugar, el servicio de primera. Tanto meseros como responsables de atender al cliente muy al pendiente de lo que se nos pudiera
ofrecer. Te atendían rápido, la comida y bebidas muy buenas y en su correcta temperatura. Me lleve una grata impresión!
Loved Everything about Taboo! The staff, the ambiance and the food all 100%
We celebrated a joint birthday party here and loved every minute of it.
First and foremost I can say that we had overall an great time at the beach club! The service was friendly and nice and accommodating. The music was amazing, good mix of songs and a good vibe!
We were spending the day there as we were celebrating an special occasion - the birthday of my boyfriend, which I mentioned multiple times when texting with the team already in January and also mentioning on that day with the host
While all others (probably about 5 other birthdays) got an token of a special occasion of an piece of cake and a nice gesture of taboo restaurant and team he was totally left out even tho all people who received it had only “regular” sun chairs while we paid for cabanas and even on the top of the minimum spend of consumption leaving over $300 there. Also while getting the bill they told us we were only able to add a certain percentage of tip (10%, 20% and so on) while we think people should get tips as we feel like the service was like and not being “forced”by it.
I also shred my feedback with one of the staff members not in a totally negative way (this is just a feedback and not a complaint!!) however I work in the service and hospitality industry myself and feel like feedback should be shared and an opportunity to keep guests coming and being recommended should not be missed. He was understanding and offered to bring something right away but that’s not what I wanted as we already paid and we’re ready to leave and get ready for dinner and did not wanted to stay for just getting a “cake for free” as they had about 7hrs to do something nice for him and recognize his Birthday.
We celebrated a bachelorette party at Taboo. The service, food and ambiance were phenomenal. Our server Victor was amazing!!! We didn't need for anything. We can't wait to visit again!!!
Thank you Taboo!!!
An amazing experience. I highly recommend Taboo Tulum for a great weekend beach party. This place was the absolute highlight of our bachelor party trip in Tulum.
Very nice food. Finesse. Very good service.
The restaurant itself looks beautiful, Great atmosphere. food was good but not exceptional call especially for the price. Service was OK at the most , call we had a dirty plates from our appetizers and they brought the main dish. Nobody did anything about it I had to ask to get a new plate ,They brought another main dish five minutes later we still have no plates , another five minutes and they trying to prep a third main course dish next to our table while the other food is already cold still no plates I already asked them for the plates three times instead of grabbing a plate from another empty table for the first time the guy went back into the kitchen still came back without plates. Then finally the guy who is preparing a last main course next to our table told the other guy to give us a plate so the guy gave us a plate but no silverware ,So about 15 minutes after receiving your first main course dish we finally got three plates but no silverware I have to mention that we were sharing the food so the food that they give it to us was sitting in the middle of the table by the time we receive silverware everything was cold. The last dish that we had there was prepared right by our table it was sold crusted fish the guy said that he removed all the bones basically every single bag that I took it was one or two bones in each bite. Once again the restaurant itself is gorgeous the guy playing on the electric violin also great experience but $280 for three plates basically cold fish full of bones was not what I expected from this place. Also lack of communication between the stuff, we were asking for ingredients to be added to the raw beef tartare but the guy preparing it was sending the ingredients back to the kitchen without even consulting with us. We also had some food that’s supposed to be packed to go, But they never give it to us ,so when I’m paying three times more for the beef tartare than what I pay in San Diego (which is not cheap)
We’re on vacation and wanted a special night out as a family. We had an amazing experience.
Good food, very good service. Very loud music and live performance. Not a place for romantic dinners with good conversation options. More suitable for party companies with some higher standards on food and services.
Todo genial. Comida, servicio, ambiente, todo en general. Lo único algo negativo fue el volumen de la música, demasiado elevado.
Great vibe, excellent food, awesome atmosphere. Service was top notch .
Excelente atención y servicio, la comida de primera , nos atendió Gregorio, generoso en su trato y comprometido con su trabajo!
Amazing experience. Everything from the ambiance to the food . The whole vibe is Tulum .
Super moment passé chez Taboo ! Le service est incroyable. L’équipe est aux petits soins. Les plats sont très genereux et vraiment très bons. L’endroit est idyllique. Bref, un petit bijou. Vraiment allez-y !!
Food was good but very expensive especially relative to other restaurants with comparable menus.
Service was very subpar. Restaurants as near empty with loads of staff sitting around yet we were barely waited on. We asked to have our food wrapped to go and waited 10 minutes before having to signal to a waiter that we were ready to the bill. Then the waiter hovered over me as I looked at the receipt and calculated the tip. Made me very uncomfortable.
Would have expected much better service given the price of the food.
Food wasn t really good.
Music too loud.
The service was good (tips...)
This was a fantastic place. Great vibes and incredible ambiance.
The service was absolutely terrible! Only one waiter was actually nice (a young boy) we regret paying the tip they added themselves! Pedro was absolutely awful, very undermining and then decided to give us the wrong change. Awful awful awful. Entertainment was good but overpriced food and horrendous service, never again
Awesome place! They know how to take care of their customers with the best service!
Strap in because it’s going to be a long review about a restaurant that claims to have class but severely lacks in that department.
I wanted to take my girlfriend out to a nice dinner at what was supposed to be a nice restaurant. We arrived and were given a table next to a group of younger men. We were seated and given great service by our waiter. We began eating our appetizers and the food was satisfactory. We noticed other company being seated around us. Two older couples in their 50s. Two younger girls then walk over to the table of younger men and began talking. At that point it began to become unruly, egregious, and honestly disgusting. One of the girls took her top off, quite literally exposed her breasts to the younger men. They obviously enjoyed this by their reaction but mind you myself, my girlfriend, and two other couples are attempting to have a lovely candle lit dinner at what is advertised as a 4+ star rated restaurant. You would think the staff would ask them to stop or leave but they noticed and took no action. Two minutes pass and now the other girl has decided she was not getting enough attention and stands on the table to begin what can only be called strip tease dancing. The staff did not make a move until finally the manager of the establishment came out two minutes into her impromptu cabaret. He claims he asked them to leave after but it seemed to be more of a don’t dance on the tables talk. We were clearly upset with the ambiance. We were led to believe this restaurant was going to provide us a great service with the obvious high prices and mood they attempted to set. But they did not meet these expectations.
Even worse so when I called the manager over after the ordeal I said I would like to leave he told me we had to still pay for our dinner that we were not even served.
This all seems hard to believe but truthfully we were let down.
I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT COME HERE IF YOU WISH TO A NICE DINNER OUT. Go elsewhere.
Taboo Tulum beach club was amazing. I strongly recommend this place. I had a very memorable birthday here on the beach love love love Taboo!!!
Unfortunately, my experience to taboo on Saturday was terrible, because the service was terrible. I won’t give out the waiters’ names, but we had bottle service, we poured our own drinks, he was never present, took him 30 minutes to get a missing glass. I asked for a towel 4 times, on the 5th time he told me they ran out and that if I really wanted one I could take a random persons USED towel. We order shisha, took 2 hours to reach our table, they never passed to change the charcoal and when we had to ask them to change it, instead of bringing the charcoal like a normal person would do, they took the shisha out back (lied by saying that’s the way they do it) came back to say the Tobacco is burned. Another lie, shisha tobacco doesn’t burn in 30 minutes. So either their shisha is bad quality or they’re lying to get us to pay for another head. My uncle asked for a cigar, never received it. I asked him to put the wifi, he legit no. All and all it was horrendous, I felt disappointed because 2 nights before we were at Rosa Negra, same people own Taboo and it was exceptional. At the end of the day I lost it and asked to speak to the manager Mario, he was amazing and was shocked that we were treated this way. For this reason and this reason alone, I recommend people to come here, but make sure to speak to a manager the moment the waiters slack off.
Service was exceptionally poor. The experience was rushed with the waiters attempting to remove plates before we had even finished eating. Ordered a bottle of wine which didn’t arrive till halfway through the main course. There are much better, cheaper options in Tulum with service you would expect
Taboo Tulum es una excelente opción para pasar momentos agradables de día o de noche. El ambiente es muy relajado y acogedor, y ni hablar de su comida, en mi opinión es de los mejores lugares en todo el sitio. Cada platillo es una experiencia culinaria única que se vuelve más llamativa Gracias a todo el cuidado del personal al servirte explicándote cada ingrediente. La relación precio y calidad es totalmente aceptado, regresaría siempre
Nos complace saber que nuestro equipo te ofreció este gran recuerdo y que nuestras opciones de platillos hayan superado de tus expectativas, de igual forma, tomaremos en cuenta de su valiosa calificación para seguir brindando la calidad y servicio que nos distinguen, eres bienvenido de nuevo, con gusto te recibiremos con los brazos abiertos, dispuestos a lograr que tus sentidos se asombren.
Superb experience! Great value as well
Un sitio espectacular, una de las playas mas hermosas que he visto, la comida excelente y el servicio lo mejor del lugar.
Worst dining experience of my life. One of our table had to wait 90 mins for her drink. 45 min wait between starters and mains, during which time they brought out a birthday cake which was supposed to be the surprise at the end! Drinks that were ordered without alcohol came with alcohol. Then waited 30 mins after the mains for them to bring the bill. Place looks nice from outside but once you get inside it’s horrible. Barely half full because I doubt anyone ever comes back. Avoid this place like the plague.
Every moment at Taboo was amazing! The food was incredible, as were the staff and the vibe of the restaurant overall. The ribeye and beef tartare were standout dishes. The violin player really made a difference to our whole experience and the ambiance. 10/10 and we would definitely recommend to others travelling to Tulum! Special mention to Adrian our server who really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great night.
Place is amazing... deserved every dolar I spent....
Just the service needs to be improve at last the people are very nice...
NYE dinner. Nothing to write home about, buffet was amongst the worst ever, food was cold, overcooked and bad quality. For $250 per person we would have expected different.
El lugar increíble, las bebidas buenísimas,la comida rica, solo que casi todo lo que pedimos lo tenían agotado.
Paëlla was very very bad! Too salty! Fake sausages
The bill took more than 1 hour to be delivered to us. None of the staff seem to care about it.
We felt rushed and had to ask them to slow down. We weren’t finished our appetizers and first cocktail and they ask if they can bring our mains? We had to ask them to hold off and let us finish what was in front of us first. They paused and got back on track so the second half of our dinner was less forced.
I appreciate the effort that the restaurant put into for my birthday celebration. Definitely the place if u enjoy the attention. Ordered one of the fish on the menu and the server had the whole performance of flame it and fillet it in front of you. There was live music performance as well. Really enjoyed that. Great date place. But if u enjoy a quiet night probably not that right place for you.
