One of the best places to take out to dinner your loved ones in Cancun. Delicious food, very nice setting and hosts that are truly interested in you having a fantastic experience. Unique in Cancun and in Mexico. Thank you Alain and Sonya so much for such a good time.

Just where you'd least expect it, a wonderful french meal in a gorgeous setting that feels more like a personal dinner party invitation than a restaurant meal. Alain and Sophia were wonderful hosts and made us feel very much welcomed. The food was perfectly prepared and presented, much as you'd expect at a good Parisian restaurant. And the experience was excellent overall.

We had one of our best meals at Du Mexique. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. The food is 1st class. If you are looking for a cut above anything else in Cancun, then this is the place. The decor is very well done. One thing to keep in mind is that the restaurant is slightly off the beaten path. It is absolutely worth the drive (extra taxi fare). I will definitely go back and plan to send all of my friends, family and colleagues. Thank you Alain.

We dined at Du Mexique for our anniversary this year. We've been to Cancun on and off for over thirty years and this is the first time we've been to Du Mexique...it will certainly NOT be the last. Chef Alain greeted us and, as we were alone in the dining room (being Americans we tend to eat earlier than most...the dining room filled up later in the evening), he suggested we share each of our appetizers and entrees in de gustation menu style. What a great idea! The food was fantastic and Chef took the time to describe (and discuss!) each item with us. He told me how to make several of the menu items. He offered recipes! He was the most charming man and VERY attentive. (BTW, did I say the food was fantastic? Creme of Cilantro Soup, Tarte Tatin with Figs and Foie Gras, Duck Confit stuffed with Duxelles and Foie Gras and a Rib Eye Steak in Bordelaise Sauce...and then dessert!).
And then there was Sonya, his wife. So charming and welcoming! Her friendly manner and personality enhanced an already wonderful evening.
And, oh by the way...All this with a terrific wine and a well deserved tip...$180 US for two. I expected twice that!
We will be back....maybe later this week! NOT TO BE MISSED!
