Summary: excellent value for money. This small, friendly restaurant deserves its high ranking. The location is very convenient, even when coming from Zona Hotelera. The decor is tasteful but not excessive. Even though some tables were quite close together (lots of couples), their conversations did not interfere with mine. The staff were all friendly, and able to answer my questions... More

Peter's is a small place, so I recommend a reservation on most days. I went with a friend and both enjoyed it immensely. I had the boquinete (hogfish snapper). Not the prettiest name in English, but rich and delicious. Peter serves it over polenta with a mixture of vegetables that complements its flavor. The combination was great. The restaurant is...

This was a return trip for us and we left feeling very satisfied with our decision. Claudia salad, mushroom ravioli, Hog fish, pork tenderloin, a bottle of white, and lime pie made for a great meal for 2. All dishes were exceptionally prepared and seasoned. Definitely would consider returning. Service was friendly and adequate. Claudia and Peter greeted us at... More

This was my second visit over a few years. My recollection of past time was superior to most recent visit. Claudia & Peter are very hospitable and nice. However, we speak English and were served by a person with little English knowledge. So the evening was difficult for us. We arrived at 6:30 pm. We asked our concierge to call... More

We always begin and end our visit to Cancun with a visit to Peter's. The food is always excellent. We had the tamarind glazed ribs and the shrimp on fettuccine (home made) this last trip. I am never disappointed. The mushroom ravioli is a must. Peter's coffee at the end is a perfect cap to the end of the meal.... More

It is pure awesomeness. A palate experience all the way. The prices are not that high, people maybe expect it to be less expensive because it is tiny and cozy and casual, but it is Cancún! What do you want people? It is jewel, the service is warm and personal, it is cute, and friendly and you really want to... More

We found Peter's via Trip Advisor and good ol' Googling of best restaurants. We had to wait for a night that it was open - then wow, was worth the wait. The place, adorable. Easy bus ride to get to. The food, just amazing all courses!). The service, impeccable. Peter acted not only as chef, but as personal host. He... More

After dining here there was no need to wonder why this is the top restaurant on TA in Cancun. Everything was delightful from the sincerely warm welcome through a delicious dinner with a visit from Peter to an equally cordial goodbye as we departed into a rainy night. We rated each of our dishes as excellent: ethereal lemongrass ginger soup;... More

This is always a culinary treat. Peter has an extraordinary flair for combining interesting flavors. Claudia and Peter are the ultimate hosts to this fine restaurant. Always on our list of "must go" eateries each year. Be sure to make reservations-it's a small space that it consistently crowded.

Thank Jeanne Z

Peter's Restaurant...Where flavors & feeling meet...Peter really likes and wants to Cook and please his guests with a memorable dinner in a cozy setting with personal attention from himself, his wife Claudia and son Eder. Small, cozy restaurant where one feels at home while enjoying an excellent dinner. Interesting menu with a different flair in dishes and preparations, Good Wine list with also options by the glass.
