The food was simply amazing! The service is above and beyond.
When you walk into the restaurant you are greeted by the kindest, most hostess you would ever meet in your life and that is Mrs. Grimond.
The Chef came out of our table and explained the menu in English. Recommended items base on what he thinks is the best not base on the price. After a magnificent meal which was after 3hrs he called us a taxi, his wife said her good byes with hugs and kisses, and the chef walked and open our cab door for us after giving us a hug goodbye. Truly a meal to remember.. A Must stop in Cancun.

If you are in the Cancun area, go to this restaurant. The French food is amazingly prepared and tastes incredible. More importantly, the 7 table dining room is served by a husband and wife duo that will make you feel like you're in your own home. Can't say enough great things about the restaurant. The only detractor is that the location is not in the hotel zone. Worth the trip nonetheless.

The best overall meal I had whilst in Cancun but not the cheapest option in town – with the tip it was 1650 pesos. It’s Downtown on Av Bonampak just as you cross over from the hotel zone. It’s French and run by a husband and wife team – he is the chef and she is front of house. There is no English menu (just French and Spanish) but the chef is French and speaks very good English so talked us through all the dishes – we had done OK with my GCSE French but I’m always nervous having once thought I was ordering Pork Loin for it to turn out to be Trotters! I had snails to start followed by coq au vin – both were delicious and full of flavour. My other half had the soufflé (served with a perfect rise) and salad to follow. We shared a lovely Californian red and we both had coffee too. The cooking is to a very good standard – as is the service. Well worth a trip for a treat meal during your stay.
