One of the best meals we’ve had in Mexico (of all our times here). We had Claudia’s salad, the fois gras, shared the porcini chicken and 2 key lime pies (too good to share). All 4 glasses of wine were terrific and Peter’s coffee at...the end was delicious. He even came out to pour the brandy himself. Peter and the rest of the staff were delightful and so attentive and friendly. I can’t wait to come back during future trips- this place is a must.More

We love Peters. Its a very intimate dining experience and Peter is just a master of his craft. Every last detail of the meals he serves is seen to, The flavors are beyond words. Its just a meal that you have experience when you are...in Cancun. Mushroom Raviolis. That Abode Brisket. Dont miss this place. We like it so much that we made two reservations. In a cruel twist of fate, there was a hip hop festival going on in the heart of the hotel zone that taxi drivers refused to drive through the weekend of our second reservation. We were heartbroken. But we will be back next year and will be at Peters again.More

This is a can’t miss downtown restaurant. Very small quiet place to get off the crazy strip and have a peaceful dining experience. It’s all about the food at peters.

It’s been 1 1/2 years since we’ve been to Cancun because of the pandemic, but we finally made it back and our first restaurant excursion was to Peter’s. It’s nice to see that in all that time nothing has changed, except for some surprisingly nice...plexiglass partitions between some of the usually widely-spaced tables. The menu is exactly the same as it’s always been, which means no surprises or disappointments. Each dish has been perfected over many years and why mess with perfection? We got the two off-menu “specials,” which we’ve had before - a large veal chop over polenta with fresh veggies and duck breast over pasta with a raspberry sauce. Both were excellent. Don’t skip the mushroom ravioli appetizer or the chocolate crepe for dessert, you won’t regret either one. This small family-run restaurant has survived so far by offering excellent food at very reasonable prices and is the perfect reason to get away from the usual, expensive Hotel Zone restaurants for dinner.More

We have come here often, we recently went twice last week. The quality of the food is excellent and the service is wonderful. The mushroom ravioli and incredible as is the sauce if comes with and is very savory. I had the boquinete (hog fish)_...which was incredible and on the second trip I had the veal chop which was out of this world. Deserts were great and we had key lime pie and the chocolate mousse. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone even if you are in an all inclusive you will not get this quality of food or service from any resort. Peter and his family and staff take great care of you. For those who are scared to venture off the resort, just have your concierge or the front door staff at your hotel get a cab for you and Peter and his staff will call a cab for you to take you back to your hotel when you are finished. Part of our Cancun experience is eating here and every meal is memorable and we have never left disappointed. I would recommend reservations as it is a small restaurant and everyone speaks very good English so calling is not an issue if you do not speak Spanish. We reserved our tables via facebook messenger on their facebook page. Restaurant and staff were taking all possible COVID 19 precautions with spacing of tables with plexiglass dividers between tables and temperature checks on arrival.More

This family owned and run restaurant can’t try harder to please every diner. You won’t believe the food and will definitely leave fully satisfied and happy. We come at least once every trip to Cancun. Give it a try-you won’t be disappointed! (make reservations early-they...can be hard to get!)More

What a great little place. The food was amazing, we had the mushroom ravioli as an app OMG. Here’s a suggestion, extra bread for the sauce . The entrees were perfect, rib eye steaks with the fixings. Service was very friendly and helpful. And a...visit by the Chef and owner was the best. And the price, you cannot beat Peter’s Do make reservations as it is a quaint little place.More

This is a place that deserves your support to recover from Covid. Every part of our visit was perfect--the food, the drinks, the staff, the owner. They are VERY health conscious and it was completely safe to be there. I couldn't get the hogfish since...the duck breast special was calling me! And Key Lime pie comes with an accompaniment of lime sorbet with a little tequila thrown in. My husband tried the camembert/poached pear dessert which was also unique, along with the chefs special coffee--they add in as much vanilla bean soaked brandy as you want. All in all, an experience we will be repeating when we are back in Cancun.More
