“French cuisine using local ingredients, in a small personal restaurant, prepared and served by the owners. Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

We had souffle, pâté on apple tart, and ravioli made with local ingredients and flavors. Ravioli is a must. Mains, we had duck, fish and rack of lamb, all excellent. Dessert included a local fruit mousse we couldn't catch the name of, but excellent. Personal experience from having chef/owner explain each menu item was educational and very helpful. They love what they do and what they prepare.

“Best meal of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We had an amazing meal at this sweet little restaurant that felt like a well-kept secret. There is no name outside, and it looks like you are entering someone's home. The chef and his wife were the only staff that we saw the entire time and they were delightful. I felt like we were at their home for dinner. The food was amazing and the service and pace was perfect. My favorite was the duck breast with rose petal sauce. This restaurant was like a safe haven for foodies in a city of Senor Frogs and Hooters. Please don't miss it.

“Nice but... so expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Downtown Cancun at Bonampak Av., small haute cuisine restaurant offering cuisine fusion by the chef in person but prices are extremely high. Make a reservation because there are only a few tables. Very chick and romantic atmosphere.

“'Like Water for Chocolate'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

We fell in love with this culinary treasure. located in Cancun Centro. Du Mexique offers truly inspired and impeccably prepared French-Mexican fusion cuisine. Hosted by chef-owner Alain and his vivacious wife Sonia, we felt as though we were dining in the  casual elegance and warmth of their own home.  We so enjoyed our meal that we returned several days later for 'second helpings.'  Du Mexique was one  of our most memorable dining experiences ever.
