If you are seeking something completely different and unexpected on your Mexican vacation, you must try Chef Giles' cooking school in Bucerias! Excellent food, accompanied by wine and socializing with the Chef and his wonderful wife, Marguerite, plus the ability to meet and talk with other couples attending made for a terrific night. Highly recommend this!

We have eaten there several times now over the last few years. If you are the first to make a reservation, you get the honor of selecting the menu. Usually you dine in the kitchen while the food is being prepared. It is a fun evening and you never know who else will be there to share the experience. Gilles... More

Though it was a great return visit for us, it was also a birthday celebration.............and not one to be forgotten! Margarita & Gilles are consumate, entertaining hosts, in what's now a popular, and becoming busy small town. Our "class"/dinner was just as delicious as we'd remembered from our lastvisit there, 2 years ago. Detail and service is wonderful, and it's... More

Then the whole group dines together outdoors. HINT-be the first person to make a reservation for the evening and you get to select the menu for... More

Le Fort is not your usual restaurant. There is a set price, $60US, and just the one sitting. You begin your evening around a u-shaped sitting areas as the chef prepares portions of the meal and explains the dishes. To start we had glasses of kir royal (champagne with an added liqueur) and a portion of terrine. We then moved... More

Simple food, anyone could prepare with high prices for what you receive. Would not recommend unless you like to pay for entertainment. Absolutely nothing to be learned from going to a setting. Charming couple but you can do better at so many other restaurants in Bucerias.

Just enjoyed another fine evening at this fine dining restaurant. If you appreciate authentic haut cuisine, this is a Must try when in the Bucerias area. They generally only open for a group of at least 6 persons, at which point you get to select the three course fixed price menu. Gilles is an artist and his wife a superb... More

Fabulous. A unique experience my family will not soon forget. The food was fantastic, the hosts interesting and accommodating. We highly recommend and will be returning as there was many choices on the menu that need to be tried.

You get to sit and watch the chef cook an upscale meal then eat outside on the patio. There is a nice liquor cart for after dinner drinks if you choose this extra feature.

When traveling, selecting restaurants is my responsibility. When I announced that we were going to a French cooking school for dinner the guys rolled their eyes and put up a mild protest. "I'm not paying to cook my own food," was the general response. Wives, of course won out and the men went along with it. How delighted the guys... More
