I had heard so much about this place that I thought I had to go. Prices are ridiculous for what it is, I’m mean it’s good but not crazy good. Good service. Friendly people

The only reason I came to Tulum was for hartwood and it was worth it. Our food was unbelievable (recommend the pork ribs) and the cocktails topped it up, the staff were really friendly, can’t wait to go back!

I went there with my girlfriend last week as a last minute trip to scape Corona crazyness from my city. Even though it was short notice, the reservation team (Polina) was very helpful to find a table for us and gave us information for our...booking like restaurant being cash only, estimated price points, nearby parking lots, cash withdrawals in town, etc. Every doubt I had was answered. Arriving to the restaurant the hosts are very friendly and helpful too, they quickly offered us a drink while waiting 5 min for our table to be ready. Our waiter told us about the menu and made sure to accommodate some allergies and food restrictions even though the menu is made by the Chef daily, they were able to make sure we had a great meal. Prices are some of the highest we paid in Tulum but we believe it’s worth it and if you are looking for a special treat, this is it! We left very satisfied and even had to take some of our food to go as we were to full already. Also we felt very safe since the restaurant is open air and all staff wears face masks, during our time in Hartwood we really enjoyed ourselves and the atmosphere. Thank you Hartwood for being a great getaway and a real experience in Tulum!More

I usually do not spend too much time and words on negative reviews but this place earned every one of them. For starters, food and drinks are highly overpriced. Service is far from ideal but things get really nasty when they bring the check and...let you know they don’t take credit cards. The “Overpriced” and “no credit cards” combination means a lot of cash, which is not particularly smart in Mexico and much less in Tulum, where safety is far from ideal. We volunteered several cards to settle the bill but the waiters started to insult us for not carrying cash. We asked for the manager and this shirtless teenager shows up to insult us again. Terrible is an understatement. Trust me, after 60,000+ readers I’m sure this is not the idea of the consumer experience you have in mind coming all the way to Tulum...Stay away.More

Wood fired delicousness. Great service. Not over hyped - yes - a bit pricey - but worth it. Loved our experience here. Highly recommend.

Wow! Where to start with this outdoor restaurant surrounded by jungle and stars. We had high expectations and they lived up to every bit and beyond. We were greeted by the nicest host and sat quickly, they brought over boards with their fresh selections of...the day, while we waited on our drinks our waiter came and walked us through every dish. We ordered grilled shrimp and tuna tostadas to start and followed with a surf and turf (because who wouldn’t?!) the appetizers were mouth watering and then came a huge lobster for only 90 dollars! We ate every last bite and unfortunately didn’t have room for their icecream creation of the day. Needless to say everything from ambiance, food and service were perfect! We will be back on our next trip to Tulum!More

I had high hopes for Hartwood as this restaurant came highly recommended to my husband and I from friends. However, we were very much disappointed. Everything was just average including the music, ambiance, service, cocktails and especially the food. The whole experience was quite expensive...as well for what received. The food was lacking in flavor and luster. Our appetizer was drenched in ranch of all things, RANCH! We had amazing food all around Tulum but this was probably our worst meal.More

Hartwood is one of the reasons we picked Tulum as a destination a few years ago and is a huge part of why we keep coming back. The food + drinks are beyond, and the vibe + the people make it a place where you...just want to hang. You’re a part of the magic as soon as you walk in! Definitely some of our favorite dinners ever. Best of all is the Hartwood Family—we’ve made some friends for life. We can’t wait to get back—The Clash on the speakers, drinks in our hands, and hanging with some of our favorite people at our favorite spot.More

This wasn’t my first rodeo at Hartwood and to be honest we come to Tulum JUST to eat here. Never fails. Best meal of my LIFE every single time. The drinks, the flavors, the atmosphere... it’s all Hot and delicious
