At Tulum Modern Mexican, patrons experience a sensory delight through fine dining and drinking in a relaxed, enchanting atmosphere. The eclectic menu includes an array of seafood, grilled meats, artisan cocktails and more using high-quality products.
For those looking to adventure and to try Tulum delicacies, the menu features an array of options. One popular dish is the Enchiladas De Mole, which is made 100% from scratch. The chef’s exquisite mole sauce is served over three chicken enchiladas in fresh, homemade tortillas and topped with toasted sesame seeds and Mexican crème. Since Tulum is a beach town, the menu highlights seafood favorites like ceviche de camaron, pan-seared salmon and seared scallops. The menu also caters to patrons who want to dine on traditional American menu items within the elegant atmosphere such as Tomahawk steaks and filet mignon cooked to perfection.
The refreshing cocktails are made with citrus juices prepared In-house every day. Three of the specialty cocktails are inspired by Mayan Gods, including the fan-favorite Potion of Gods – Diosa Ixchel, made with Don Julio Reposado Tequila, passion fruit juice, orange juice and lime juice.
The restaurant is bathed in soft lighting, greenery and vegetation, creating an aesthetic environment perfect for a romantic date night. Thursday through Sunday, guests can enjoy live entertainment that can be found in hot spots across Tulum including live fire dancers, guitarists and DJs.
