“Cancun's Hidden Culinary Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

I don't know why it took so long. Been coming to Cancun for 15 years but never heard of duMexique until this past winter. What a loss on our part. A small but very eclectic and aesthetically pleasing surrounding, this restaurant is personally attended by Chef Alain and the beautiful Sonya. The dishes are classic French, time tested but at the same time edgily fused with local ingredients and executed to perfection. Whether ordering Coquilles St. Jacques, tournedos Rossini or an ethereal foie gras soufflé, Chef Alain will delight you. A very romantic and sensous patio is available for an early drink or sipping a finishing coffee. Highly recommended.

“Do not pass up the opportunity!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

My wife and I dined here on our first night in Cancun. We loved the food and the ambience of the restaurant. I will surely return. Menu is made daily based on what fresh things he finds at the market. Truly a gem in Cancun.

“Wonderful food, exceptional service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

We recently stayed at the J W Marriott in Cancun. This was our first visit to Cancun. My husband is from Montreal Canada and wanted to try out this restaurant based on the reviews we previewed. We are very glad we did. The food at Du Mexique was very memorable, and delicious from the appetizers (tuna tartar, Mushroom soup) to the main meal ( fresh grilled fish with veggies) to the outstanding dessert. The ambiance of the restaurant was romantic and the service- Sonya, who treated us like family members and hugged us upon our departure to Alain, her chef husband, who was gracious as he led us into the restaurant and explained the menu to us.The food is top notch as is the service and the prices are reasonable for Cancun. As French restaurants go, this would rival any fine French restaurant in Montreal. If uou love French food make sure to pay this place a visit!

“A little too quiet but the food was very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We decided to try this particular restaurant after reading the TA reviews.
If you are looking for somewhere that is quiet and understated with good food then this is the place for you.
When we made the reservation we originally asked for 7pm but was told they only had a table at 8pm and no other availability on subsequent days, so we accepted the 8pm table.
On arrival we were greeted and welcomed by the lovely hostess. The restaurant had around 7 tables, 2 were occupied, the others were empty, which did seem odd given our original reservation reqest, however, it appears that they prepare and cook to order which obviously takes time and I could understand that they had limitations and wanted to ensure that they offered attentive service and good food.
There were 4 of us, two adults and two teens.
Two of us opted for the Kobi beef, I have had this on previous occasions at other restaurants and even though the beef was good I was not convinced it was Kobi, one because the price seemed inexpensive for that cut of meat and two because it was no where near as tender as I have experienced previously.
We all enjoyed the food, which was served by Chef Alan and his wife.
We would go again, but it is very quiet and I think that you need to speak in whispers as everyone would hear any ongoing conversation.
