We were sorry to hear about Chef Grimond's passing, but Sonia has found a replacement chef and is continuing this wonderful restaurant. The preparations are amazing with sauces which are very flavorful and enhance your selection of meat, fish or poultry. The deserts were also outstanding, we all agreed it was the best creme brulee we had ever had anywhere.... More

My wife and I went to Du Mexique for Valentines Day and had the tasting menu. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Sonya is a great hostess. My only complaint is that the cost was very high considering the value of the Mexican peso.

This is the second time in two years that I have eaten at Du Mexique, and the second was even better than the first. French food with a Mexican flair. This restaurant would stand on its own in any city in the US. The seafood dish my wife had was everyone's favorite, with fresh flavors and great complexity. I could... More

Had dinner here last night. The food was beyond excellent. Chef and the owner are the ones serving you. The chef comes out to your table and explains every plate. The presentation and the service everything about it was excellent. The menu is always changing but we tried almost everything on it and it was delicious! Felt very at home... More

Fantastic mix of Mexican and French cuisine. Benjamin is an incredible chef. Your taste buds will thank you for visiting Du Mexique. The quaint atmosphere Sonja and her staff has created is very enjoyable. Make your reservations early - restaurant has only 7tables. Easy bus ride from hotel zone (allow 90 minutes for rush hour traffic during dinner hour) and... More

My husband & I came on out last night on vacation and it was absolutely the best meal we have ever had in Cancun. Chef Benjamin makes you feel like you are eating at his home, I asked him to pick my selections based on my preferences, including wine and I can honestly say one of my most memorable meals!...

This past visit was actually our second time dining at Du Mexique. We also dined here in February 2016. I really can't say enough about this place. My husband and I were blown away with the experience both visits. Sonya and Chef Benjamin are basically welcoming you in to their home, that's how they make you feel. The attention to... More

My brother and I have travelled the world....eaten at hundreds of fabulous restaurants... but dining at Du Mexique was unlike anything we've ever had! We both agreed it was one the best meals and dining experiences of our lives.... Simply put...it was flawless from the moment we walked in the restaurant! We were greeted and seated by Sonya (the owner)... More

On our annual visit to Cancun, a must stop for us is our second home, du Mexique. Sonya makes you feel part of her family as she welcomes you into her "home". Benjamin has infused his French cuisine with Mexican flavors that are absolutely delicious. As appetizers, our party had the cheese soufflé, escargots, and cannelloni stuffed with crabmeat. Most...

Simply incredible, Sonya, Benjamin and the food were all beyond excellent. This is the best restaurant in Cancun that we have visited in the past ten years. The atmosphere is well thought out and artistic and felt very warm and comfortable. Probably not a great place for children but everyone that loves great food will be very happy to patronize...

DU MEXIQUE es un Lujo Gastronómico con una sola "Estrella"... Usted!. Es un pequeño espacio donde la tradición se encuentra con el estilo contemporáneo, el Romance y los Cinco Sentidos. El Lugar se ubica en pleno Corazón de Cancún, la cocina es la herencia de nuestro prestigiosos Chef Alain Grimond, y ahora es ejecutada con perfección por nuestro Gran Chef Benjamín Ferra y Castell. Y, por supuesto que su elegante diseño interior y su impecable servicio, poseen la firma inconfundible de su anfitriona y Propietaria Sonya Grimond.-Abierto de: 19:00 a 23:30 horas.-Descansamos el "Domingo".Gracias.
