Visiting Cancun, we found the restaurant from a Delta Airlines recommendation. From the moment of entry, we were greeted with welcoming warmth. The décor is romantic, the owner, Sonya a charming and inviting person. The Chef, Benjamin, also warmly welcoming, personally arrives at the table to explain every item on his menu, takes the order, helps deliver the wine and... More

There are hardly words to describe this diamond of a restaurant. The owner Sonya Grimond has carved a special place in the hearts of all those who continue to return to her restaurant. As much to see her as to enjoy Chef Benjamin's amazing creations. The restaurant is quaint. Similar to walking into your own home. There are very few... More

The chef, who is Parisienne, was so lovely and the food was delish. While my choice was something I could have had outside of Mexico, I really enjoyed the flavours and the atmosphere was beautiful. Sonia and Benjamin were so charming and made it a very personal and unique experience. I would go back in a heart beat!

Sonia and Benjamin are offering a truly gastronomical experience, the food enlivens your senses and every taste bud. Every plate presented was phenomenal and masterfully executed as well as explained by Benjamin himself, Mrs Grimmond wine recommendation is on target. Du Mexique is a must do when visiting Cancun. Thank you for offering us a memorable evening.

We dined here for the first time during our annual trip to Cancun last year and loved this restaurant. Unfortunately it was after some family and friends had already left to return to the US. So, we made this a "must do" on this year's trip. We were again delighted - and we are a tough culinary crowd of seven.... More

We were sorry to hear about Chef Grimond's passing, but Sonia has found a replacement chef and is continuing this wonderful restaurant. The preparations are amazing with sauces which are very flavorful and enhance your selection of meat, fish or poultry. The deserts were also outstanding, we all agreed it was the best creme brulee we had ever had anywhere.... More

My wife and I went to Du Mexique for Valentines Day and had the tasting menu. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Sonya is a great hostess. My only complaint is that the cost was very high considering the value of the Mexican peso.

This is the second time in two years that I have eaten at Du Mexique, and the second was even better than the first. French food with a Mexican flair. This restaurant would stand on its own in any city in the US. The seafood dish my wife had was everyone's favorite, with fresh flavors and great complexity. I could... More

Had dinner here last night. The food was beyond excellent. Chef and the owner are the ones serving you. The chef comes out to your table and explains every plate. The presentation and the service everything about it was excellent. The menu is always changing but we tried almost everything on it and it was delicious! Felt very at home... More
