On our last night in Cancun we chose Peter's Restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. We booked our reservation through Open Table which made it easy. We enjoyed many superb meals in Cancun, yet Peter's took first place. Why? The short ribs were incredibly moist and flavorful and the veggies and mashed potatoes were the perfect accompaniment. My husband enjoyed... More

We found Peters on TA and it was a huge find. It was so delicious we ate dinner twice at Peters during our one week vacation in Cancun. It was a 20 minute taxi drive from our hotel, but the variety of dishes, quality and prices were well worth the ride. We both had the hogfish with polenta on different... More

Downtown Cancun but a simple 20 minutes bus ride (bus R1) from hotel zone (get off the bus on the first stop after you pass through the big intersection of traffic circles) and just walk back to the main road and go left. You will see it. It will take you less than 5 minutes from the drop off point.... More

Peter's was recommended to us by the concierge at Laguna Mar Resort and we checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor and were pleased to see that it was rated #3 of all restaurants in Cancun. However, we were disappointed with the taste and quality of the food. one of our friends had the pork, which she found to be too... More

we found Peter's on Trip Advisor. It was exceptional, small friendly place. Chef Peter Houben is absolute master of his craft, he came out personally to talk about our choices and spoke to us at the end of dinner. Great small place with superb food and service.

We've eaten at the finest restaurants in the world and Peter's may have surpassed them all! The mushroom ravioli appetizer and salmon entree are a must. Thank you Peter and Claudia for an evening to remember. We will see you again soon.

We have been here multiple times and we eat multiple times here when we are in Cancun as we skip the all inclusive resorts and spend the money to eat well off the hotels properties. We were there 3 times last week and the veal, mushroom ravioli's, the sea bass, the boquinete (hogfish) the Claudia salad, pork tenderloin and the... More

We love this charming restaurant. It is a intimate, smaller venue that is quite impressive in all regards. The presentation by Chef Peter table-side (and follow-up) was wonderful. Claudia's service was welcoming and insightful. The food and wine were very delicious and a great value. We will definitely make this a highlight with each trip that we make to Cancun.
