My girlfriend and I are currently on vacation in Cancun and we searched for restaurants near to where we are staying and found this place, the service was 5 star from start to finish, everything was well presented and the chef himself came over to the table and personally read the menu to us and explained how he created each...

From the time we were greeted at our taxi by Sonya to flowers & hugs by Sonya and Chef Benjamin when we were leaving, it was an amazing experience. You are truly welcomed and catered... More

We discovered this wonderful, small and beautiful fine dining restaurant 8 months ago through TripAdvisor. We had to return this visit. There are only 7 tables with white linen and modern art work on the walls, a piano and a courtyard. It's in downtown Cancun away from the hotel zone and well worth the trip. The menu is in French...

My husband and another couple spent the week in Cancun and dined here the last night we were in town. Without a doubt this is the finest resturant in Cancun. Everything exceeded expectations from the wine right through dessert and after dinner coffees. Sonya is delightful and Benjamin is an excellent chef. From now on DuMexique will be our first... More

Very small, intimate environment--I believe there are only six tables altogether. The whole thing is run by Sonia, the owner, the very creative, very competent chef, Benjamin, and one assistant. The restaurant is on the pricey side but if you're looking for a nice place to treat yourself, or you like the idea of an intimate, relaxed environment with very... More

We were a bit scared when we first went in for our 7:30 reservation as we were the only ones in the tiny establishment. But we soon learned that they space out the reservations so the owner and chef can give undivided attention. We ordered a great wine, and were so impressed with the small menu, we had a hard...
