Our friends chose this restaurant while in Cancun, and at first I must admit I was a little hesitant. It isn't in the hustle and bustle of Cancun, and it feels like you're in someones house! I felt more comfortable as the night went on, as Sonja really made you feel like family. She went over the menu with us... More

If you are willing to go a bit out of the hotel zone in Cancun this is a must. About a 20 minute cab ride from the hotel zone is du Mexique. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with the most hospitable atmosphere. Chef/owner Sonya could not have been more gracious. Her food from the Escargot, to... More

Tastefully elegant dining in Cancun which started with the relaxing reception. Sonja was warm and inviting and clearly passionate about creating a fantastic dining experience. The food was very good but not world class but it was more than made up by the atmosphere. Very small so make reservations in advance, but a MUST for every trip to this region

From the moment we entered and were warmly greeted by Sonya, the owner and chef, our evening was perfect! We started with the escargot... they were melt in the mouth good. The soup and salad were wonderful and the fish of the day was superb! Sonya and her staff served us as we've never been served before. This small (... More

Small and intimate, the owner Sonya personally took care of every detail from greeting us at the door to walking us through the menu, to special flares at then end of our meal. Her warm and gracious personality shows through in every aspect of the experience, and the food is beyond compare. We travel and dine out a lot, and... More

I am amazed ... in a city with so many 5 star hotels with big budgets that a small 7 table restaurant consistently manages to out beat them on quality, flavor, and charm. Small but complete menu options. Their escargots are world class. That is not an exaggeration, I always try the escargots whenever they are on the menu when... More

Du Mexique is the best restaurant in Cancun. It is a treat for all of your senses. When you enter, you are typically greeted by Sonia the owner in a sitting area, an artfully decorated space for assembling your party. The dining room walls are hung with a spectacular display of modern art done by local Mexican artists. Soft unobtrusive... More
