Disco 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 that include ingredients like rum, hibiscus, and tropical fruits.
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!
