“Everything is superb!”

I have been going to Du Mexique since it first opened about 6 years ago. I love that the menu is always new and fresh and that makes for a new gastronomic adventure every time. You will not be disappointed!

“I did not believe the ratings...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

I basically did not believe the ratings, my only comment would be that the menu only has like 14 things, but its enough! Everything we tried was perfect! You have to try the escargots
The main dish is marvelous and the desserts are .... Well, french!

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Was looking for a special restaurant for my Mother's 70th birthday while in Cancun and found it with Chef Alan and Sonya! Restaurant is at the entrance of downtown Cancun across from Superama and once at the door you feel like you are being welcomed into their home as they both greet you with a genuine warmth. The restaurant has only 7 tables and has a nice courtyard in back with outdoor seating and lit so it beckons you for a nice retreat. We were the only customers with the exception of one other party of four.

Sonya welcomed as and Chef Alan came out to describe the menu for us. My mother chose escargot and the rack of lamb and I the 3 cheese soufflé and rack of lamb. All were delicious and lovely seasoned that I was almost brought to licking the plate! We had a very nice bottle of Chilean Cabernet as well. I had emailed prior and advised of reason for attending and after dinner both Chef Alan and Sonya brought out a lovely dessert of strawberries, chocolate, sandwiched between two large cookies and pastry cream.

Overall was a fabulous meal and we felt very honored how we were treated by Chef Alan and Sonya. Don't miss the chance for an evening at Du Mexique.

C'était vraiment délicieux ! Merci beaucoup, Chef Alan. Sonya - Gracias por una noche hermosa!

“Elegant fine French dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

We had a terrific meal in this intimate restaurant with service from the owner-chef and his wife. Atmosphere more like Southern California. A relief to have a break from the Meriachi serinade. Well worth the taxi ride into Central Cancun.
