Fodor's Expert Review Unico

$$$ The Riviera Maya International

As competitive as the culinary scene has become in Tulum, this restaurant by chef Brian Sernatinger truly is único (unique), with an eclectic menu that covers everything from pasta to cheeseburgers to seafood. Stars of the international menu include the well-prepared white truffle souffle, Unico's cheeseburger (a beef-and-spice-blend ground and mixed in-house), and the purple basil pappardelle. The chef's special sangria is also a treat. The second-story space in the heart of the pueblo looks down over the main road and can be a bit noisy, but interesting murals, soulful Spanish music, and an intimate 10-table setting are pleasant backdrops for a meal. Save some calories and skip dessert: it's the one thing in the restaurant that's clearly not homemade.
