Simple dishes made impressive by a combination of earthy flavors make dining at Banyan Tree's Tamarind a refreshing experience.


Modern Mediterranean dishes like watermelon salad and Beef Veal Cheeks & Shrimp are on the menu at Tamarind.

Tamarind tempts passersby with Mediterranean cooking so excellent that you'll want to wrap it up and ship it back home. One can expect the setting and food here to be informal. They are open for business during dinner only, so make sure to plan your visit around the limited hours they are open.


Tranquility is key at Tamarind, which features comfortable seating, textured walls, muted lighting, and contemporary decor.


This restaurant is on the premises of Banyan Tree Mayakoba, which is located in the Riviera Maya, in Quintana Roo; it is four miles (six and a half kilometers) to the northeast of Playa del Carmen.

Guests wanting to merge their dining experience with some pleasant sightseeing opportunities should consider heading to Ocean Research Facility. Do keep in mind, though, that if you're planning to visit, using the taxi service or having your own car may be necessary, as it's 16 and a half miles to the northeast.

Visitors to the area will come across at least a few active pursuits in the area, such as El Camaleon Mayakoba and El Faro. El Faro is the most convenient place to visit the beach, and nestles itself within a reasonable distance of Tamarind.
