We're committed to sourcing local ingredients to compose elegant, innovative, and seasonally driven dishes. Fresh in concept and preparation, the menu’s varied flavors appeal to many palates. From the gambas pil pil to the thin crust margherita, from Irma’s famous huevos rancheros to the indulgent ricotta doughnuts, a meal at ZAMAS is an experience not to be missed.

So many restaurant choices in Tulum. We tried many and enjoyed them all. However, it speaks volumes that the one restaurant we returned to for a second visit, was Zamas. We loved the simplicity, charm, authenticity, and view at Zamas. The food was heavenly. The cocktails were sheer delight. The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious (we were in flip flops). The unobstructed view of the ocean and beach was like no other in Tulum. You can watch children playing, people fishing, and pelicans attacking the ocean for fish like torpedoes. The staff is easygoing and friendly. I was also impressed by the selection in their fully stocked bar. I was really impressed when at about 11:00am, I saw a pair of Zamas fisherman dock their little fishing boat in front of the restaurant, and they carried an ice chest (filled with freshly caught red snapper and other fish packed on ice) directly to the kitchen. Yes, they fished all morning and hauled their catch directly into the kitchen!! It doesn't get any better than this. The freshest fish I've ever seen at a restaurant. You will love it here.

We went to this place because of the good reviews for the ceviche, it was good but maybe not the best I’ve had. The place has a cozy atmosphere and beautiful candles. It is cozy and trendy at the same time. Try the passion fruit mojito, it was super!

We ate breakfast at Zamas twice during our stay in Tulum. It was perfect before heading out for our scuba dive with Mexidivers across the street. The staff was friendly and the food was fresh.

Had dinner at Zamas yesterday. It's been there forever and always delivers. Wonderfull ceviche and great camarones con ajo. Of course, accompanied by a nice margarita. Just sit there and enjoy the view of swimmers and guests (and lovers) enjoying a cold dip in the ocean. Can't beat that!

We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed some of the classics- the ceviche, the gambas, and of course the margaritas!- and we can't wait to have you back soon! From all of us here at ZAMAS, thank you for your visit and we look forward to welcoming you next time!

WOW...we ate here every morning (and a couple of dinners) during our yoga retreat for 5 days. Breakfast was avocado toast with goat cheese, egg and BACON! The bacon was mouth watering! We all had a watermelon juice drink and cappuccino. Each day was off to an excellent, happy start due to your tasty meals. At dinner we had delish tacos and the real delight was the decadent Banana Dessert and Donuts with chocolate sauce. I MEAN ...INSANELY GOOD!! I'm not a dessert person, but I couldn't get enough. The servers were all amazing and my personal favorite was Manuel. He was an awesome person and fantastic server. That guy smells so good and has a friendly smile. The food here was really some of the best we had in Tulum. I would high recommend it!! Thanks for an outstanding meal everyday and we look forward to returning soon!! =)
