“Excellent and creative french dinner...”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

Probably the best fine dining option in Cancun... This small but exquisite restaurant proposes a short but succulent menu. We tasted the tarte tatin de foie gras and then the lamb rack and the salmon with goat cheese. All was perfect !! The wine suggested by Sonya was a very nice Pinot Noir from Chile which combined very well with the lamb. Just as an opportunity to improve: some additional help with the service would speed it up a little bit but it is anyway a great dining experience. Highly recommended.

“Good experience, good food”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

This is the second time we ate at Du Mexique. Briefly speaking, if you are looking for a venue to celebrate a special occasion, I would definitely prefer Du Mexique to any fancy Hotel Zone restaurant. The service here is very personal, the experience is very authentic, the food ranges from good to great, and, all things considered, the place is *not* overpriced.

Having said that, what I realized after this last visit, is that when in Cancun, I prefer to mingle with locals. There are places in downtown Cancun that really come alive in the evenings, especially during the weekends. There are festivals, food stalls and what not, and this is something that to me is more authentic and enjoyable in Cancun than a French bistro, the likes of which I can find a good dozen in Chicago.

“Excellent restaurant - a hidden gem”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

A warm, cosy atmosphere. Hosts that are attentive and warm The food was fabulous. Rillettes as an amuse gueule followed by an extraordinary Cheese souffle ( coquille st jacques and escargots for my friends) and an exquisite rack of lamb (tournedos bordelaise). There was also fish on the menu that sounded delicious.

A memorable meal. Highly recommended for people who enjoy refinement. merci!
