This secluded spot is well worth the eerie drive down rutted dirt roads and secret paths. Hechizo, which means bewitchment, is run by chef Stefan Schober and his pastry-chef wife, Hui. How this multinational couple, who met while working in Singapore, ended up in Tulum is a story Stefan gladly summarizes while crouching beside your table and describing the unwritten menu. Don't be surprised if the night's offerings include braised veal cheeks, maple leaf duck, and roasted beets. Yes, you are still in Tulum, but have entered the rarified land of Rancho San Eric, where a few prescient families vacation in beach villas abutting the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Dinner is served during three set seatings, and reservations (best obtained through e-mail) are a must.—Maribeth Mellin

Open Tuesdays through Sundays with seatings at 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30 pm.
