“unmissable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

spotted a sign advertising this restaurant on my way back from Tulum, decided to give it a try as it was a few blocks away from the hotel I was staying in; such a good idea. My wife and I were a bit late as we went to the beach that day, it was not a problem for the attentive staff who brought us iced water and offered cold refreshing drinks on arrival. Every course was beautifully presented (I particularly enjoyed the duck and the fillet mignon) and the bread was freshly baked. The sommelier was very attentive and knowledgable without pushing his expensive wines. Overall it was quite a culinary experience, having eaten in more than 10 countries, I would say that this meal was amongst the top five meals I ever had.

“Better than billed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Who expect such a small and unassuming venue to deliver a powerhouse dinner? Compliments to Chef "Sal" (vadore), a national who has studied abroad (in France) and definitely mastered the culinary arts when it comes to presentation and the marriage of taste. We have travelled and eaten in some very nice restaurants and this experience ranks in our top 10. The atmosphere is very relaxed with jazz, classic 1940's and mixed with a touch of Caribbean songs. There few tables but by the end of the meal the restaurant had filled. We ordered as many different things as possible in an attempt to "try it all". Took the liberty to post food pictures. Reviews are accurate, but can you have to see it, taste it and savor it to believe it. Better than billed? Certainly. Great work Chef and Staff !!!! Enjoy your success.

“Best meal of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had a wonderful experience at Les Cepages. We were staying on the strip in the hotel zone, but quickly discovered that the best restaurants and better prices were to be found in downtown Cancun. Our food was fabulous, the atmosphere was very nice and our waiter, Raul, was so charming. He was not very busy, so he spent a lot of time talking with us, explaining dishes and helping us practice our Spanish, while he practiced his English. The whole thing was a true pleasure. You can take a cab there, or we quickly learned that if we took the bus from the hotel zone to any where in downtown Cancun, we could then catch a cab to anywhere else in the downtown area for only 30 pesos, which is less than $3, American. Highly recommended!!!!!

“Excellent dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Traveled the 20 minutes from JW Marriot based on high TA rating. Was not disappointed, food/service/wine where all first rate. My overall take away is that they all really care about your dining experience.
Highly recommended.

“Superb cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

When we first walked in we were a little unsure because it was located in a small shopping plaza and completely empty (though the decor is modern, refined). However, we were then pleasantly surprised - the chef came out to tell us about the specials that evening, describe perfectly how the meat is prepared, grilled, the ingredients in the sauce, etc etc. Then the food - amazing - a delectable amuse bouche, appetizers that were classic French yet with a little local twist, lamb that was cooked exactly medium rare as requested. Excellent wine pairings. We will be back!
