What a pleasant break from the hotel zone. The food was delicious. There were only two other tables occupied when we had dinner here. Owner,s were very friendly and service was great. Wonderful experience!

Fantastic food. Excellent value. Service is great. It is in Downtown Cancun so be prepared to take a taxi. It is absolutely worth the trip. Small restaurant so make a reservation this is not a place you can just walk in to. Menu has a...variety of options. Fully stocked bar. We love it.More

This is our favorite restaurant in Cancun. We have been coming to Cancun for over 12 years, and we always make sure to have a dinner at Peter's during our visits, generally bringing friends to introduce them to this memorable restaurant. The food is always...creatively prepared with fresh, local ingredients, and Chef Peter and the rest of the staff are very welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant!More

Peters is a small gem of a restaurant. It is family owned and run. The food is absolutely wonderful. Many choices on the menu. I have tried several over the years and never been disappointed. Peter is the chef, makes it a point to visit...every table, and his wife, son and daughter-in-law all work there and tend to your needs. Plus, Marco makes the best Margarita in Cancun! You will not be disappointed.More

I have nothing but amazing things to say about this quaint little gem of Cancun! My family and I had reservations at 6pm, and when we got there, we were the only table there. The music was a delicate melody that was just the right...level so we could still talk and enjoy each others company. The staff got the door for us, and greeted us with a smile immediately upon entry. We were sat, and given a moment with the menu. I never felt rushed, and the staff did a great job to not hover. Our drink order was taken in a timely fashion, and the drinks were beautifully displayed, and quite delish! I got the mojito, and the mint was so fresh. Peter himself came out to introduce himself, thank us for coming to his hidden gem, and ask if we had any questions about the menu, which was a nice touch. I got the mushroom ravioli for an appetizer, which were to die for. They were prepared in a rich truffle cream sauce, that was so heavenly. I don’t usually add salt to my meals, but I added a little (which I’m not complaining about) and it completely changed the entire flavor of the dish. They were so good! For my main course, I got the Boquinete—Hogfish filet. This was a direct recommendation from Peter himself, and it was cooked perfectly. The fish is a mild white fish from Mexico, and it was flakey and full of flavor. The veggies that came with it were cooked perfectly ál denté and the polenta was done creamy. All of the textures on the plate tied together nicely with the flavors that were prepared beautifully. For dessert, we shared a “tequila sunrise” key lime pie, and when i say it was the best pie I’ve ever had, it’s no exaggeration. I will absolutely recommend this place to anyone and everyone that will listen! My only regret is that we went on our last night in Cancun.More

Wonderful little place! Do yourself a favor and skip the party places in Cancun at least once and have a delicious meal at Peter’s. Formerly the head chef at some of the local resorts, Peter came out and greeted us and asked if we had...questions during our meal. The food was excellent, I had the pork ribs and my wife the brisket, both were amazing and full of flavor!More

We’ve been going to this family-run restaurant for over ten years while vacationing in Cancun - probably a total of 25 times. It has consistently been our favorite restaurant in town with excellent food, efficient service, and at HALF the cost of similar restaurants in...the Hotel Zone. Feel free to read my past reviews of Peter’s for more information, but the bottom line is that it’s a tremendous value for high-quality food and service.More

AMAZING (long review here, but they deserve the detail) My wife and I were searching Google Maps for somewhere new to eat, when I stumbled upon Peter's. Reading the reviews, and seeing the menu, I was certain we had a great choice on our hands...(but I had no idea how much of an understatement that would be...) We arrived, and I noticed that parking was limited, and the restaurant wasn't large (we took an Uber, so parking wasn't an issue). I'd strongly recommend being dropped off, and perhaps even scheduling reservations, though admittedly, we just walked in, but it was lateish on a Saturday evening. The decor and ambiance was excellent--low, intimate lighting, including candles on the tables, and a great musical selection playing in the background. We were immediately greeted by the hosting/service team (they speak both English and Spanish, and have menus in both languages as well). Staff was warm, knowledgeable, very helpful, and very accommodating. Some of the best service we've experienced. Now, the reason why you're here: the food is EVERY bit as good as reviews would have you believe. We started with mushroom ravioli (one that is frequently raved about online for good reason), and the foie gras--TO. DIE. FOR! 🤤 My wife and I haven't been able to stop talking about the foie gras. They bring complimentary bread to your table too, and take my advice: dip it in the foie gras juices and/or the ravioli sauce. For our mains, we had smoked salmon (my wife), and the sautéed porcini chicken breast (me). Man, listen. Every bite was perfect. Let me just say, chicken breast is easy to make taste "good", but is also too easy to dry out, but every single bite of **this** chicken breast was moist, flavorful, and heavenly (served on perfectly cooked fettuccine noodles too). Lastly, we split a slice of key lime pie for dessert (you should know, all desserts are made in-house). I should've gotten another slice. SO good! The Chef, Peter (as in, the guy whose name is on the door), stepped out to meet us and get our feedback. I had to tell him how amazing it was, and his hilariously matter-of-fact response was "that's the idea". 🤣 Didn't come off as arrogant or stuck up, just knew what he was there to do, and prides himself on doing it exceptionally well. We were finally ready to leave (while contemplating if we could somehow beg for a bit more foie gras to go), and we headed for the door, where Peter stood waiting, bidding us goodnight with his (also hilarious) send-off of "see you next week". (EDIT: He's correct by the way. We booked a reservation to go back one more time two days later before we headed back home. It was EVERY bit as good as the first time, and the service was even better!) Easily a Top 2 restaurant experience, and we've been to a couple Michelin Star restaurants before. We'll be dreaming of food from here for a long time.More
