For sure the best cuisine in Cancun!
Everything I had was amazing, perfectly balanced and great taste!!
Great place to relax and disconnect, especially if you have desert in "Sonia's Jardincito".
Sonia & Alain do a great job in all aspects!!!!!

“Beautiful experience , Outstanding Creme Brulee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

OK... I did it I went to du mexique based on the reviews on TA and to my surprise it was a fantastic experience . This is a charming 7 table restaurant on the lower level of what you can assume is Sonya and Alain house. If it sounds like I know them it is because they make you feel like an honor guest at their home since the moment you arrive and are greeted by them by the time you leave you feel like they are friends from a long time. While this might grant some stars to begin with food is the main factor . The foie was perfect the venison was tasty ( a bit heavy on the pepper) and the creme brulee was just beautiful. I would go again just to taste the perfectly balanced soft texture ,crisp and delicate top with a not to sweet vanilla taste Alain you made me so happy with this dessert. So if you have a reservation go meet Sonya and Alain and enjoy the ambience filled with local art and some very well executed classic French food and for the love of good have some dessert.

“Great French gourmet restaurant in Cancun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We, 2 adults + 2 teenagers, had an awesome dinner at Du Mexique where we celebrated my partner's 50th birthday. Friendly atmosphere and outstanding food; a bit of Europe and à bit of Cancun.

“Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is the best restaurant, by far, that we visited in Cancun. We arrived late at this small French restaurant in town relatively far from the hotel where we were staying. We were greeted by the chef, Alain Grimond, and he took us by the table. His wife, Sonia, then greeted us and treated us as old friends. The choices for the meal were new and absolutely delicious. Most of the family had a three cheese soufle while one had a creme brûlée with roquefort as appetizers. For entrees, we chose the rack of lamb with a mustard sauce, salmon in a maple syrup glaze and finally, one of us had snapper with a beurre blanc sauce. As our hotel's concierge informed the Grimonds that it was our anniversary, we were met at the end of dinner with a chocolate soufle with a creme anglaise.

We should also point out that our concierge informed the restaurant of certain food sensitivities and the chef kindly directed us to which items on the menu would be best. The Grimonds were so very kind and attentive throughout the evening and as we parted, the women in our party received yellow roses and kisses and handshakes all around as if we were all old friends. The restaurant is very small (less than ten tables) seating no more than 20 people at a time. The decor is exceptionally modern and simple. But what an evening to remember!
