Description: Peter's Restaurant...Where flavors & feeling meet...Peter really likes and wants to Cook and please his guests with a memorable dinner in a cozy setting with personal attention from himself, his wife Claudia and son Eder. Small, cozy restaurant where one feels at home while enjoying an excellent dinner. Interesting menu with a different flair in dishes and preparations, Good Wine list with also options by the glass.

We took bus #R2 from the hotel zone and got off at the first large round about and walked two blocks to this restaurant. The restaurant is quaint, with a charming little bar, an intimate setting and interesting art work. The staff was friendly and attentive; the service is outstanding. After ordering drinks, Peter came out and greeted us and took our order. WOW! I have never received such attention at a restaurant before and been greeted by the owner/head chef. The salmon was divine, so good, my husband ate half of mine when he was finished with his meal. After dinner we ordered dessert which was also unique and delicious. (Try the poached pear with camembert.) Just as we finished our meal, we got caught in the rain (do you like pina coloadas? ha ha), and Peter came out from the kitchen again to chat and help us pass the time as we waited for a break. The restaurant also hailed a cab for us, in case we didn't want to take the bus back. What a lovely experience all around for our last night in cancun.

Went to Peter's Restaurante with business associates and we were treated like family. From Bouillabaise to salmon, everything was delicious and the service very friendly. Highly recommended!

“Peter's Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

For those of you not caught up in one of the many All Inclusive programs and are looking for a GREAT restaurant, try Peter's. It is just inside downtown Cancun. Almost all of the cab drivers know where it is. For those that know your way around a little and have been there at least once, you may prefer to take the bus which is a LOT CHEAPER than a taxi. Peter's is within a block of a major bus stop.

The menu does not offer a huge selection (although a very good veriety) but ALL of the offerings are fantastic and the prices are not out of line given quality of the food. There is soft music playing in the background (unlike at many restaurants where you have to shout over the music so other folks at your table can hear what you are saying) which provides a pleasant and restfull atmosphere for dining. Peter's is a great place to get an excellent meal. I hope you enjoy the food as much as we did.

I would not take really young children there but if the kid is 10 or older they well do fine. Peter, the chef and owner will, time permitting, come out to your table to make sure everything is fantastic, as it always has been when we have been there with anywhere from 2 to 10 people.

“#1 or #7, Peter's is a must for gourmet foodies visiting CUN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We discovered Peter's three years ago as the #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor and have been going back every year. To see a chocolate venue rated above Peters is, to me, laughable. Not that the choc place isn't good, but it's like comparing apples and chainsaws. Go to Peter's, talk to Peter (he is the chef and visits every table) and his lovely wife. Ratings on Trip Advisor come and go because of diners in general, not necessarily those looking for fine dining.

I calls 'em as I sees 'em.

“A Most Excellent Dinner!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

My family had the incredible opportunity to dine at Peters Restaurant last week while in Cancun. Relaxing quaint setting. Excellent service. Chef Peter, his wife Claudia and son Eder are the nicest of people. Delicious appetizer, soup and salads. I had the hogfish for my entre and my wife had the smoked salmon. Incredible. Such flavor. The highlight of the night for my daughter was the chocolate mouse dessert. After dinner we relaxed for over an hour while sipping tequila and wine. I highly recommend anyone traveling to Cancun to make space on their schedule for an evening at Peters.
