Such a unique and beautiful place to dine...eating in a cenote was one of the highlights of our vacation! We ordered the surf and turf for 2 and it was delicious!! The pork was the best my husband and I jhave ever had! The steak was perfect as well as the lobster and shrimp...albeit the lobster was small but you each got 3 small tails so not too bad. We don't drink alcohol and were never pressured by the waiter as some have said....same with the tip at the end of the meal. The desserts I would skip next time as they were small and nothing special. Exploring the cave after dinner was a fun adventure! Well worth the $150 (2 appetizers/surf and turf/ 2 desserts) Go there!!
Un lugar precioso, increíble la ubicación y los acabados. La comida me quedó debiendo en sabor. El servicio fue genial.
A beautiful restaurant set in a cenote with outstanding food and service. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going back if ever in Playa Del Carmen again
The service we received was exceptional! Deff a must go
We made a special trip up from Akumal with friends for this rare gem of a restaurant. Unique ambiance and good food was expected and they delivered.
We would recommend to anyone in the area!
My wife and two daughters had dinner at Alux as a farewell to Playa del Carmen. Food was truly amazing. The restaurant itself is a unique attraction. Warm, friendly and knowledgable staff finished off the evening. A must for any visitors to Playa del Carmen.
Esta caro para lo que sirven. 960 pesos por 4 cremas del dia?
Absolutley beautiful. A must see. Ask for a tour of the cenotes! Best 20 minute stroll into the caves and other dining rooms. Such an amazing experience!
The ambiance was amazing, but the music was too loud. The wine selection was expensive and disappointing because once they opened our bottle and we didn't like it we had to buy it. The food was exceptional and so was the service.
Wow !!! Probably one of the coolest places I have ever eaten! Food was delicious better than expected
We were on vacation from the United States. This restaurant was recommended to us. It was a great find and we were very happy with our experience. Great service and food.
El servicio excelente pero la comida deja mucho que desear, no hay opciones veganas y nada preparan al momento, no son flexibles con sus platillos
Excelente lugar! Increíble locación, trato, alimentos, música!
Good ambience and food. Víctor, our waiter, was very profesional.
Family reunion at this beautiful place was just the best idea. We weren’t amazed by the food but everything else from service and ambiance was absolutely beautiful!! I’d definitely return and definitely recommend going, the experience it’s just wonderful.
The food and the wine need a serious re-work! Wine all tastes corked (we tried 3 different bottles), the food isn’t bad but at this standard of restaurant really could be better.
The restaurant is beautiful and the staff very good.
Alux offers a unique dining experience. The menu offers numerous interesting selections. The wine cave has an extensive inventory of bottles to choose. A tour of the cave between entrée and dessert revealed many private dining nooks. The servers are very attentive. Dining at Alux is a must when we vacation in the Playa del Carmen area.
Comida, ambiente, servicio.
Para cualquier ocasión muuuuuuy recomendable.
I was skeptical about the restaurant because it didnt have good reviews about the food and service. I have to say “don’t knock it till you try it” that was my mentality. The place is beautiful, the service was awesome, and the food was excellent. The one thing I do have to say the price for the food is a little pricey for the amount of food. Otherwise, everything was excellent.
En general estuvimos muy agusto...el servicio fué bueno,la comida tambien, pero al privado que me dieron le faltó musica de ambientación apesar de estar bien decorado de velas y petalos,es decir la musica del area principal nunca se escuchó hasta donde estabamos....la sugerencia es hacer que llegue la musica aunque sea a un volumen moderado,esto lo haría aún un excelente lugar...olalá se considere...
Amazing service, very romantic can request private areas. A bit hot being that’s in a cave
I didn't appreciate the panhandling, while trying to enjoy my dining experience.
Éramos una mesa de 9 y todos muy amables desde afuera en el parking asta que sales de el restaurante, no se diga lo hermoso que está, los precios son razonables, en septiembre regreso!
Very attentive service and food was worth every penny. Staff is very knowledgeable about the menu which helped. If you’re into wine, I recommend a bottle to vet a glass b/c you’ll have more choice
Toda una experiencia cenar en ALUX, el lugar es unico y la experiencia es memorable. El servicio del personal fue estupendo, los alimentos muy buenos, platillos que resaltan la cocina regional.
J’avais mentionné que c’etait un anniversaire, ils n’en ont pas tenu compte. Le service est très bien. Le restaurant est magnifique bien sûr, cela ne peut pas faire autrement. Les cocktails étaient très bon, les entrées également( pieuvres et crabe). Pour ce qui est des plats principaux, nous avons été très déçus. Il y avait une espèce de polenta sèche et froide servie avec mon plat, le cerf était froid également. L’assiette de mon conjoint était loin d’être appétissante. Buffalo Le dessert n’etait pas à la hauteur. Bref je m’attendais à une expérience culinaire extraordinaire étant donné les critiques sur tripadvisor. Ce ne fût pas le cas pour nous. Par ailleurs nous avons apprécié ce décor magnifique.
The setting is very nice but I would not want to be there on a hot night. The food is not very good, this was the 2nd time we have been and will be the last. The food is just not good enough.
Tres tres beau restaurant! L endroit est magnifique. La cave a vin est terrible...wow wow wow ! Le service est super et j ai adoré la nourriture.
Very unique and beautiful place. The food is EXCELLENT and the service very professional. We did not know the place before and it is a memorable discovery. We will be back to the restaurant before the end of our trip.
Un buen ambiente, celebramos nuestro primer aniversario y nos regalaron unas bebidas, muy rica la cena y las bebidas.
Ambience is great obviously, you are in a cave. We were greeted by a hostess with glasses who seemed utterly confused..she led us all through the dining room then back to the front desk and then back out to the dining room trying to figure out where to literally drop us. She handed us the menus and just walked off. She continued thru the entire night leading people confusedly like this through the restaurant trying to seat people, it was painful to watch. She also patrolled through the dining room with an iPad watching every table CONSTANTLY , note half the dining room was empty. I am not sure what that was all about.
The service was good although we had a hard time understanding the server over the loud music. You must use a flashlight to see anything on the menu but the waiters do have them for you to use. The food was sadly not good. Ordered the duck which seemed very undercooked and the wild pork dish was extremely over cooked the seafood wrap appetizer was very good however. Had the cheesecake for dessert which was very dry and bland but the sorbet that came with it was great. I would say this place is good to come to one time for drinks just because of the atmosphere but if you are looking for awesome food I wouldn't suggest.
One of the coolest restaurants I've visited! Not only is the ambiance in the cave so fun but the food and wine is also excellent. After dinner you are able to walk through the rest of the cave and end your night at the large bar. Highly recommend!
El ambiente, la atención y el vino espectaculares! La comida muy regular pero la pasé de maravilla.
Wow. The food quality, flavor, freshness, creativity was amazing. The grilled seafood for 2 blew us away. The cave system was secondary to the food! Delicious
So freaking good!
A must each trip we make to Riviera Maya. It has great ambiance
Very good food and a really nice atmosphere
Great food! The atmosphere was amazing! The food was well cooked and well plated. The food was by far the best food we had on our entire vacation. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. They had done a wonderful job preserving the cavern. It was by far our entire group's favorite place during our vacation. We will be back!!!
Went for my birthday and it was fabulous! Dinner and drinks were great! Highly recommend!
Wonderful place, awesome ambience ! Food is basic and expensive so you better go for a drink at the lounge bar and benefit from a tour of the place rather than an excellent diner ! However the cave is AWESOME
