My brother and I had Claudia salad. So fresh with greens, arugula, toasted sesame seeds, blue cheese, dried cranberries and best of all an out of this world raspberry vinegarette! Peter and his wife Claudia were wonderful hosts and their staff were very friendly.

Wh are t a gem we found on our last trip to Cancun. Not only was the food delicious, but this family run restaurant felt like you were visiting in someone’s home. We were celebrating an engagement and were surprised with a table nicely set...up for us. We definitely will be back!More

The best restaurant in Cancun! Food, wine, cocktails, it’s all fantastic. Peter & Claudia are so welcoming. The prices are reasonable as well. Small, intimate setting. We’ve been coming to this restaurant every year for 11 years and would never miss it. The highlight of...our annual trip.More

We enjoyed the Lamb Tenderloin and Seafood Fettuccine entrees. The ingredients used were of fine quality and extremely tasteful. Chef Peter suggested we try the honey infused habanero with the chocolate brownie vanilla desert— excellent. The restaurant has approximately 10 tables with bar. Our server...(Eddie?) Peter’s son was very knowledgeable. All food is made from scratch. We took a taxi from the Royal Sands in the hotel zone to the city center. And we will add this restaurant to next year’s visit.More

Delicious food. Excellent service! Everything was excellent from the Salads, we ordered the Claudia salad & shared it, and our friends ordered the mixed greens salad and shared it. I ordered the special- Grouper it was out of this world and so fresh. I want...to fly back just to get it again. My husband loved the adobe beef brisket. Our friends loved their dishes too. The three chili pork tenderloin and the rib eye. Desserts were so good. Tequila key lime pie, chocolate mouse, chocolate and banana stuffed crepes. The owner and chef visits every table. It's such a great experience. We stay in the hotel zone and take the bus there and back when we visit. Once you know the bus stops it's an easy ride on the bus.More

We went to Peters on our last night in Cancun. Actually, we were there 14 times during our stay (8 weeks). We have never been disappointed. We both had the salmon, which is our favorite, but have tried most of the other items on the...menu. We always split the Claudia Salad, have the delicious mushroom ravioli for an appetizer, our main course, and then dessert. Needless to say, we are full when we leave. My husband always has the key lime pie (it's so delicious) and I had the brownie sundae, which is drizzled with habanero honey! Incidentally, they do sell the habanero honey, as well as ginger honey and the salad dressing for the Claudia Salad. I never knew that until this last time, so I brought some home to enjoy and think of Peters until I can get there again. This is a family owned and operated restaurant. Peter visits with every table. He and Claudia go to the market and get everything fresh daily. If a fish is on the menu and it doesn't look that good at the market, he just doesn't serve it. He refuses to compromise quality. If you're in the hotel zone, it's well worth the cab ride, or you can also take the city bus. Reservations are a must ... and well to do in advance. The restaurant seats about 24. It is so tastefully done and the personal service is so appreciated. Needless to say, it's our favorite!!More

Four of us went to Peter's last night. We shared a bottle of red organic wine from Chile. Both couples shared a Claudia salad. The special was grouper with mango sauce. It was served on a bed of rice with perfectly cooked veggies. This dish...was to die for. Three of us had it and all said it was the best fish dish he or she had ever had. The fourth member had the hogfish which was also excellent. Peter comes out to greet each table when they have just about finished their entre. His wife, Claudia, greets everyone as they enter. It is like coming home! Peter's has covid protocols in place. Everyone entering washes his or her hands just inside the door. Then your temperature is taken and you are given a squirt of hand sanitizer. Unobtrusive plexiglass panels separate some of the tables in the dining room. They do not distract from the dining experience.More

Fantastic food, attention to detail. Peter's is sort of easy to miss even though it's on the main road but this cozy restaurant has really great ambiance, good prices, and interesting food pairings that make you wish you could try all of the menu options....I opted for the foie gras appetizer which was creamy, delicate, and paired excellently with raspberries in a classic combination that highlighted the tart excitement of the berries and the unctuous buttery flavors of the foie gras. Stole the show. I had the unusually named hogfish next and the only thing unusual was the amazing way the chef brought out the complimentary flavors of the fish, paired with some vegetables and creamy polenta. Finally, the key lime pie with the tequila sunrise chaser (a sorbet laced with tequila) was whimsical and an excellent twist to a classic dessert. I really appreciated the chef/owner also stepping out to introduce himself and check in with the diners. It made it feel like I was in less of a restaurant and in someone's dining room sharing a meal. Staying where I was sort of in between Cancun Centrale and Zona Hotelera, I had low ambitions in terms of finding a place like Peter's and I am glad I gave the restaurant a chance! It was fantastic. It is small so make sure to call or whatsapp message reservations!More

Eight of us went to Peters again Saturday night and every one of us loved our meal. I had had a little stomach bug so was being careful what I ate. Peter fixed me a delicious chicken breast, rice, mango salsa and vegetables. We always...order the Mushroom Raviolis with the most delicious sauce ever as an appetizer and the doctor had told me no sauces, so while the rest enjoyed their mushroom raviolis, he brought out a delicious mushroom soup ... a really flavorful mushroom broth and one ravioli in it. So I got to enjoy the ravioli also. Our table had chicken with porcini mushrooms, salmon, Tamarind ribs and boccenetti (hogfish). Then came dessert. Their key lime pie is the best we've ever had. Last night some had the brownie sundae with raspberry sauce and the habanero honey drizzled over it. Words can't really describe the deliciousness. It's the bomb!!!! I should have started off by saying that Marco makes the best margaritas I have ever had. I am not much of a margarita drinker and this is the only place I order them as they are so good. If you haven't been to Peters, you should really try it. It's a small family run and owned restaurant that is close to downtown. It's well worth the taxi ride as you will enjoy fabulous food and service. If you're in the hotel zone, you can get there by city bus also. We go at least twice a week when we are in Cancun. I've tried most everything on the menu and was never disappointed. There's a good variety of choices.More
