This intimate 7 table restaurant makes you feel like you are eating at a friend's house. Its elegant and quiet. You are waited on by the chef and his charming wife. The food was delicious, delicate and perfect. You feel relaxed and at home by the unpretentious atmosphere. The kobe beef and the duck breast were superb!!! This place is a hidden treasure for those looking to stay away from the Cancun crowds and just have a quiet delicious dinner!!!

Wow...what a great experience! The restaurant was recommended by Emma at our hotel. We were greeted by Chef Alain who ushered us in. We were the only persons in the restaurant and had the privilege of being guided by the chef in making our selections. I started with the foie gras which was served with figs in an upside pie. Melt in your mouth good! My pork was excellent and perfectly seasoned. I had the lovely strawberries for dessert. Sonya served our food and was very gracious. This was a memorable meal!

Referred by Palace Resorts this quiet restraunt ..only seven tables....is the most perfect place to take someone you love......Alain is the chef and Sonya (his wife) will take fine care of you both. Alain, born in Italy, was a chef in the West Indies, Japan, Canada and now Cancun......you can only imagine what comes out of the kitchen.......enjoy

I recently visited Cancun and found Du Mexique on TripAdvisor, a most magnificent restaurant. My first wife was a French chef, so I know great food. I had a awesome coq au vin and my wife had a equally incredible rack of lamb. . If you are looking for great food at a very reasonable price visit Du Mexique. You will not be disappointed.

We found this wonderful restaurant while perusing the trip advisor site. After reading just one review, we knew we had to try this restaurant. Believe me, we were not disappointed. We were greeted at the door by the chef, Alain. He escorted us to our table, quickly brought our drinks, and translated the menu for us answering all of our questions about the selections. Both he and his wife, Sonja, attended to us throughout our meal. The entire experience could not have been better. The food was wonderful, and it was a pleasure to meet Alain and Sonja.
