Posada Margherita in Tulum, Mexico is among the top spots to eat in Tulum. Posada was one of our most memorable meals. We’d read of the ‘Pasta Nazi’, as the locals call him. Alessandro Carozzino, an Italian ex-pat who runs the hotel and restaurant with his wife is rather stringent about the rules. But then I would be too if I made fresh pasta by the individual order. This was a rather unexpected beach meal! And seriously the best simple Italian meal we’ve had. Fresh ingredients, pasta made right there 5 minutes ago, gorgeous blue waters, pure white decor. The atmosphere is definitely a contributor to the experience, but we do swear you must go and try it.
Each meal begins with a wooden bowl filled with Antipasto. Fresh tomato bruchette, foccacia with olive oil, cauliflower, parmesan cheese and olives abound.
The menu consists of a few choices of pasta and fresh fish. Period. And each dish is impeccably prepared. Wow! Pictures speak a thousand words.
If you’ve never been to Tulum, for starters, you must go. We have traveled pretty extensively and we fell in love with the charm of this generator powered village in paradise. We never re-visit. Tulum, we will be back. There were 3 memorable meals there…Hartwood, Mezzanine and Posada. The rest, meh. So don’t miss out on these if you go!
Looking for a hotel? We highly recommend Mezzanine Hotel or one of the others owned by the same group, the Colibri Hotel Collection which includes El Pez and La Zebra. Mezzanine is north within walking distance of the Tulum Ruins, El Pez is in the center at Turtle Cove and La Zebra is furthest south closest to the biosphere.
