Fantastic restaurant, downtown Cancun, with an absolutely beautiful setting. The service was superb, we were welcomed by Sonia, who was amazing all through the night. The meal, was absolutely magnificent, (I highly recommend the souffle, heavenly). I am vegetarian, so I was prepared a special dish by the Chef,which was also impeccable. Music was fantastic too. Overall it was a great experience, we were celebrating my mom´s birthday, and she was delighted. It is quite expensive, however the quality of the meals and the wonderful service make up for the price. Must visit if you have a chance.

One of the nicest dinners we've ever had - the restaurant is gorgeous. Sonja and Benjamin are both incredibly warm and lovely, and the food is absolutely stunning.

You leave feeling like you've had an amazing meal in the home of an old friend - we will be back on our next visit to Cancun!

We went for dinner last night and it was amazing.
It truly does feel like you are in someone's dining room.
There are only 20 seats in the place! The food was great, the owner and the chef come out to explain the menu and answer any questions. The service was fantastic and every dish we had was excellent! We will be back!

My family of 6 was a bit skeptical upon arrival because it appeared to be closed. A guard let us in and we watched as a small staff arrived. Once we were seated the magic began. The chef came out and explained the days menu. He spoke French and our server/hostess Spanish, but they knew enough English to get us through. It was a limited menu, but very interesting and enticing. The girls began with a cheese soufflé and the boys octopus and snails. From there the girls enjoyed the fish of the day and I don't remember what the boys ordered, but we all loved our meals, capped by some delicious sweets. The place is quaint and the experience was very personal. It felt like we were eating in the home of very gracious hosts. I should mention my kids are 20-28. I would not recommend this place for young kids or those with less adventurous palates. Well worth the journey into town!

Benjamin and Sonya were the most gracious hosts. My husband and I went there per a recommendation from someone we met in Cancun. It was a fabulous date night for us in a very intimate setting (though I wasn't a big fan of the art on the walls) with lovely piano music being played, and Chef Benjamin coming out after each serving to make sure we were satisfied. The flavors were rich, fresh, and exquisite. The fish melted in my mouth, and the salad was a very unique blend of ingredients. We ordered the coconut ice-cream dessert which was a perfect end to our meal (with warm bananas and chocolate sauce). Pricey, but well worth it. I'm glad we made it a date night and left our 9 year old daughter with my parents to watch her at the resort.
