Our family had the opportunity to dine here during out trip to Cancun. The reservation processes is difficult. We made a reservation before coming to Cancun and was told to confirm on arrival. We try to do this but was told by the concierge that the restaurant was closed Sunday. We confirmed Monday morning and was told they gave our reservation away because it was not confirmed. We were giving another time. On principle, I wanted to cancel the reservation and go somewhere else. On my families convincing we kept the dining reservation. We all had a very enjoyable meals though not one of the best meals I have ever had but the best in Cancun. We will return if we can get a reservation on our next trip. Tried to refer a friend who will be coming next week but they were unable to obtain a reservation. Wine list is very small and not in my wine knowledge. We drink mostly California. I have limited knowledge of some French Bordeaux and Italian Barolo and Baresco. We had a Spanish red that was very good, lucky guess. The rack of lamb was very good, maybe a touch overdone . The duck was perfectly prepared and tasty. The salads were good and unusual. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

This is an excellent french-mexican restaurant. Chef Alain is an excellent chef. The restaurant he runs with his wife Sonya is superb in decor, food and service. We've dined there twice (May 2013 and Feb 2014) and have not been disappointed. Food is tastefully prepared and brilliantly presented. Chef Alain and Sonya also serve you your delicious meals/wine.

What makes this restaurant stand out, aside from the food & service, is how kind both Chef Alain and Sonya are. Example - there was a table next to us and one of the women at the table was a little cold. Sonya actually took off this long scarf/shawl she was wearing and put it around this woman. They treat you as family in an elegant setting. Sonya says goodbye to you with a kiss and Chef Alain with a handshake (a kiss for the ladies :)

Please skip the hotel restaurants and make this restaurant a must visit in Cancun, you will be extremely pleased you did.

I have dined at the restaurant on several occasions and it continues to be on par with any restaurant anywhere in the world. The escargots are unmatchable. Really fresh food, and a true dining experience. Visit the place if you have TIME to enjoy the food. You will not be in and out in an hour. This is not a high volume restaurant. They take their time preparing the food.

Great food experience, gracious hosts, and very romantic setting

We have not been to cancun for 7 years and all our old haunts had disappeared.... so we were getting a little nervous... until we remembered TRIP ADVISOR and found Du Mexique...
We had a wonderful experience of fine dining in Cancun, Mexico... eating delicious food and drinking a good spanish reserve wine... I have to mention the bathroom... a truly wonderful experience... and last but not at all least Alain who cooked our meal and Sonya who attended us... were delightful... People who know me, know when I say 'I met my divine sister'... Please go there for a wonderful experience of french cuisine... and so much more... We'll be back next year for sure...
