GitanoDisco ball, lounge, jungle, and cuisine all come together at this trendy restaurant located on Tulum’s main hotel-zone avenue. The venue is renowned for its eclectic style that blends unusual lighting, a lush outdoor setting, and live DJ nights for a cool, hippie-style vibe. Dinner is prepared over open-fire grills and in wood-burning ovens, resulting in flavorful Mexican favorites like taco samplers, quesadillas with epazote, grilled avocado, and slow-roasted pork belly. Gitano also specializes in strange but enticing cocktails from its mezcal bar, like ones that include ingredients like rum, hibiscus, and tropical fruits.

Nestled into Tulum’s lush, jungly beachfront, Gitano offers a modern take on traditional Mexican. Chefs prepare local ingredients, in season, in wood-fired ovens and over open flame. The perfectly deployed bohemian chic and hot Latin grooves round out a scene that attracts a comely international crowd, year after year. Definitely duck into The Jungle Room, a romantically themed cabaret (with a sister venue in New York); live music on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

The atmosphere is filled with energy as the attractive crowd awaits the jungle dance party that begins after dinner... We enjoyed the handcrafted mezcal cocktails and delicious small plates while we waited. An excellent evening at Gitano!
