On our first night out on this visit to Cancun, we headed downtown to find Peter's Restaurante. We were pleasantly surprised to find him a fellow Dutchman. But we were quite unprepared for the gastronomical feast that awaited us. Peter Houben has to be THE most understated restauranteur and chef in Cancun. For starters we had a green salad and... More

Great fish dishes enjoyed by both my husband and I. Husband and wife owners very personable along with rest of wait staff. It is a little off the beaten path in downtown cancun but it was well worth the trip. We also loved the chocolate mousse dessert! We will be back!

Once again, my wife and I dined at Peter's while vacationing in Cancun. We just can't say enough good things about this quaint little place. Each time we visit, the food is just as superb as we remembered it. Peter and Claudia are always friendly and make our dining experience one of the highlights of our trip. Great food, outstanding...

Whenever my wife and I are in Cancun we make sure we go to Peter's Restaurante at least once or twice. My wife cannot have much butter or fatty food and Peter is always very accommodating in preparing a dish for her. My salmon was prepared perfectly and the mashed potatoes and vegetables in cilantro cream sauce was delectable, Dessert... More

Don't miss this gem if you are in Cancun. Small but welcoming venue. The food is outstanding as is the service. Peter reviews the menu and answers any questions before you order and always visits during and after your meal. We won't miss this anytime we are in Cancun. Reasonable prices and outstanding dining. Great presentation.

My girlfriend chose Peter's for my birthday dinner after diligent research, and clearly this was the right choice. Serious food, highest quality, excellent service and very reasonable prices. The Claudia salad and Boquinette (hogfish) were our favorites, and the Chardonnay-semillon was a delightful surprise. The filet of sea bass was a delicacy- a beautiful thin filet, a presentation we'd never... More

I used Trip Advisor to research a nice restaurant, and Peter's was highly rated and I had high expectations. This restaurant did not disappoint. This restaurant has very personal service and fantastic quality starting with the drinks, appetizers, soup, and main dishes. Before our server took our order, the owner/chef, Peter, came to our table, and asked if he could... More

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor we had to go. We had a car and we're staying at the Marriott CasaMagna which was about a 20 min. drive, I would have driven an hour. After being seated and given our menu the chef/owner Peter introduced himself and asked if we had any questions. The first sigh that he really cares about... More
