“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

We just had a fabulous dinner. The starters, mains and desserts were all amazingly great. Table ordered fillet mig on, duck, lobster and lamb..all very good. Raul the server was charming and so helpful and great attention to detail. The chef visit to the table was very attentive and showed his care of his customers and their experience.
Really great hidden gem just off the hotel zone.

“Probably better than our experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

The presentation was wonderful but there were hiccups in everything else. Food was good but not great. Some items left me disappointed. Yet, some was good food too. Left plastic wrap on some goat cheese served on bread. They didn't charge me for that salad. Took forever to get check, even after asking. They had hard time splitting bill between two couples. Item from other couple ended up on our bill.

“The best restaurant in Cancun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The food is excellent and the service was outstanding. The chef explained us the dishes and we loved all of them.
The waiter's (Raul) English was more than passable and he was very attentive without overdoing it and added to the overall quality of the experience.
A must in Cancun, while off the beaten path and away from the hotel zone, this was a meal worth the effort.
I hope that some of the big hotels take note and recommend this wonderful restaurant to their guests. It is definitely worth the effort to go and taste Chef Sals culinary delights!

“A Gastronomic Treasure in Cancun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

From the moment you walk in to this elegantly decorated space, you know you're in for a special experience. The wait staff strikes the perfect compromise between courtesy, helpfulness and friendliness. The wine list is perfectly managed. The wine we wanted was not available (low season inventory management) but the suggested substitute was perfect. And then the food: I won't review the entire meal, but I will say I've not tasted a lobster in a vanilla-butter sauce before and if I were not so full, I'd have ordered a repeat right on the spot. Others dining with me had equally perfectly prepared and served meals. My desert, a Napoleon of incredible delicacy was the perfect ending to a world-class meal. The added plus of an extended conversation with Chef Sal made this a very special meal. Prices were in line for this kind of quality. Mid-high for Cancun, a bargain in the US or Europe. If you're serious about food, this is a must in Cancun.

“Sensational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I took my daughter for an early dinner last week. What a difference it makes to be in a restaurant where you are treated so special. My first course was the salmón gravlax, simply delicious. Her salad had the perfect presentation and flavor. Our second course was sensational for me it was grilled lobster over a bed of rice and salted vegetables. I highly recomend it! My daughter's petite filet also delicious. The menu may not be too extensive but chef Sal will have different suggestions for you. Wine simply excellent, price just right, music perfect. Congratulations to everyone at Les Cepages and thank you for that Sesational ocassion
