    The food and presentation was AMAZING! I highly recommend Chef Mauricio and will definitely be booking him when I return to Tulum. He arrived early and immediately started preparing our meal. He also did a fantastic great cleaning up the kitchen.

    Don’t second guess. This is worth it! We had an amazing NYE dinner party for 8 at our Airbnb. Mauricio and team were great and the food was even better. We will cherish this memory for many years

    This was an amazing experience . We scheduled for the night we arrived so we didn't have to worry about getting to the store and cooking. The food was excellent!

    We had such a fantastic experience with Mauricio! It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. We were able to drink wine and chill on the patio while he made us one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Each course was thoughtful and delicious. We even got to chat with the chef for a bit after the meal to learn a little more about tulum and the surrounding areas. We would highly recommend this experience for anyone wanting an extra special and tasty way to experience tulum! Thanks Mauricio!

    Can not recommend this enough. I have never seen my family so happy at dinner, even my youngest who has tons of allergies that Mauricio had to navigate around LOVED this experience. The ceviche was absolutely incredible and Mauricio was professional and personable. He took a family photo for us and humored us while we asked him questions and watched him cook. We had him come for Christmas Eve and it was such a memorable and special experience. Absolutely loved!!!
