Nice food . Nice service . Birthday greetings . Wonderful time. Thanks
Essen ok , jedoch für die aufgerufenen Preise viel zu teuer! Jenseits von gut und böse!
Location ist cool, mehr jedoch nicht !
Essen Preise Service 5-
Kurz hin Location sich anschauen und ein Drink nehmen. Mehr definitiv nicht
The atmosphere is worth the visit when in Playa Del Carmen. The food was alright and the menu selection adequate. The wine cellar was nice and had a variety of wines from all over. The service was ok but the staff was not overly helpful or friendly. Still, to eat dinner in a cave was amazing!
Très beau restaurant et très belle ambiance nourriture bonne a recommander
We had a fantastic evening at Alux, a bit of a splurge but worth it for the experience, the unique atmosphere and the food was exceptional. Our server was terrific. We had my husbands parents age 81 and 73 with us and our daughters age 17 and 12, at first we were unsure there was something on the menu for everyone’s tastes. But we found good options and everyone was happy with their meal and the whole evening.
En un lugar único! Vale la pena visitarlo para una ocasión especial. El servicio fue un poco lento ya que hubo algunos errores en nuestros platillos, sin embargo, nuestro mesero muy atento, se disculpó y compensó con unas bebidas de cortesía.
Alux is a million dollar experience in respect to it's ambiance and location. It is indeed in a cave/cenote. It is absolutely breathtaking. The tables are exquisitely set up for a beautiful romantic experience. Some of the dining tables are set up exclusively for privacy with beautiful candles, subdued lighting, and very simple yet pretty classic white linens. Take pictures because it is absolutely majestic. The ambiance was laid back and the DJ played lounge like type music. I will admit that the food was ok. My husband and I were not blown away in the least bit. We expected so much more seeing that this cave experience was so beautiful. Our main entree arrived to us lukewarm. The NY strip steak was chewy and had a large amount of gristle. I do recommend to order the "Alux salad" and daily cream soup. While it was very good, it wasn't exceptional. As for our service, the staff was exceptional. Extremely polite and they were there to make sure our dining experience was superb. Price wise, I do think it was a bit high but not over the top. I recommend Alux restaurant as a beautiful choice for a romantic experience. You won't regret dining in an ancient cave surrounded and embraced by such a wonderful piece of Mexico's nature.
Eating inside a cave looks so cool, so we just had to try it. After having dinner with them I think Alux would be the perfect place for a lite bite and drinks. It was quite humid. We found out later that when it rains, the water level in the caves rises so much that they have to close the restaurant and move the furniture. There vegan or vegetarian options are somewhat limited. Wines are priced high.
But the location is pretty darn cool and how often will you get to eat in a cave. They have special areas set off for romantic dinners or groups. It gets 5 stars for ambiance, but less for food. Services was awesome too.
Amazing old cenote.
You should come and great a drink and explore.
Food is bad.
Beautiful venue and great food. Sat next to a cenote and picked a bottle of wine from their wine cellar - truly amazing experience.
I’d recommend for the ambiance, uniqueness and beauty. The food was ok, nothing special ( except for the soft shell crab.) We honestly knew this before visiting but wanted the experience. The service was rude. The waiter wasn’t happy with his tip ( it’s not mandatory) which was more than adequate for the service and for our bill and confronted us, asking for more money. This was unacceptable and created an embarrassing and unnecessary situation. Caveat emptor.
Gathering with friends to show them the sights of playa . We dined here a few years ago and raved about it so they wanted to try. Did not disappoint!!
Tourist scam. The food was average and REALLY overpriced.
Buena experiencia en un lugar inigualable.
This was our 2nd experience at Alux and it didnt disappoint. We were celebrating our 21st anniversary and it was the best experience to commemorate our celebration. Our server Adair helped make our celebration first class!
Alux is so unique- definitely a must if you are in the area of Playa del Carmen.
Excellent host service and waiters etc food is good and the ambiance... wow !
The experience is phenomenal. The courses were paced a little slow but we got up and walked around the cave so it worked out ok. We had a private dining room which is the way to go. The food was good but not the best we had in PDC.
Absolutely best restaurant in Cancun area! Must visit!
This place was definitely one of a kind! It was only a 10 minute cab ride from the Hilton and I have to say the experience was one of a kind. The staff was pleasant and food was good. The cave itself was decorated in a unique way and the colorful lights and ambiance was perfect for a nice dinner out. I highly suggest this restaurant as it’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else! Only suggestion for ladies is not to wear high heels. The uneven floors will make it challenging to walk! I wore wedges and still had a bit of a hard time-you just have to walk slowly.
We enjoyed a great meal in a fabulous environment. I would recommend this restaurant as a must for anyone visiting Playa del Carmen.
The personal attention at Alux is top notch. The waiter was attentive and seemed to enjoy his role in guiding our dining experience. the ambience is quite nice. The only thing that is lacking is the taste of the food. Our dishes were bland and little complexity to the taste profile.
El mesero Hiram muy buena atención y explicación muy detallada sobre nuestra comida
The venue was amazing!! And the food was the best I had while in Mexico.
Fantastic setting in a natural cave. Beautifully decorated and very enchanting. The menu looked terrific, utilizing a number of local, unusual ingredients but the combination of flavorings could have been much better.
We heard about this place on our flight down to Playa. Was beyond expectations. Like getting a cavern tour and dinner all at once. Food was amazing and how often can you say you ate dinner in a cave.
Amazing place and atmosphere! the restaurant is beautiful and the service is great.
The food was very good.
Really happy we went there !
Mi restaurante favorito en PDC, lo recomiendo mucho para aniversarios y citas románticas
Alux was amazing. It is set in an extensive underground cave. There is a main room with a bunch of tables, but there are many little grottos with tables perfect for a romantic evening.
Don't get me wrong the place looks great but is in massive need of a high end chef and total reboot of the kitchen. The food was average to below average and our service was good up until the end and then we didn't see our waiter for about 20-30 minutes. Granted the place is in a cave but do be prepared to see bats which isn't exactly ideal. If I had to go to this place again I'd get a drink to enjoy the ambiance and eat elsewhere. A bottle of wine, 2 soups, and 2 main courses cost about $250. I'd say it was worth about $50.
Overall our experience was good. However, I will most likely not go back.
-The ambiance = 4: it is a unique experience to have dinner in a cave.
-Food = 3: food did not meet my expectations. I had much better food that were a lot more affordable while my stay in playa del carmen.
-Service = 4: Our server was very good, however the hostess was not the warmest- she lacked good costumer service skills. No one in my party liked her attitude (one star for the hostess).
This was our second visit to Alux and found it just as wonderful the second time. The atmosphere is so unique and the 2 person band did a wonderful job. Perfect background to a great night out with friends.
Our food was good and the presentation was very nice. You do not go to Alux for the food, you go for the ambiance. Our waiter had a difficult time with the point of sale system and it took nearly 30 minutes to pay our tab. As I recall the same thing happened last year.
If you have not been to this restaurant; I would strongly suggest trying it at least once. Overall it is a very nice experience.
Pesima experiencia, pesimo servicio, comida muy mala, porciones muy pequeñas para el precio argumentando que es comida gourmet, la cual estaba pesima, teníamos una reserva a las 10 y nos dijeron que el servicio terminaba a las 1030, en cuanto llegó el mesero nos empezo a presionar con el tiempo, 40 min después nos dijo que nos tenia que traer la cuenta ya, con media botella de vino por terminar todavia, en resumen ha sido la peor experiencia en este lugar, no recomiendo que vayan a tirar su dinero y a tener una mala experiencia, solo por ver una cueva
He estado en aluxe varias veces hace tiempo no fue buena la experiencia pero en esta ocacion todo todo estuvo excelente desde los señores que te reciben en la puerta muy amables el mesero josue que es la segunda ves que nos atendia muy muy amable nos explico cada detalle del menu y siempre de muy buena gana y la comida y postres excelentes me da gusto que volvio a ser el mismo restaurante de hace tiempo felicidades gracias Josue sigue asi
The place is awesome Ambiance is warm and incredibly beautiful
The service was very professional and they tried hard to make sure we were happy
The food is good but not spectacular and my wife’s steak was not very hot, nor was my wild boar....
If you want to experience something different I would definitely recommend this place
Will definitely be back next vacation and every vacation after. Beautiful cave dining with delicious authentic food.
Muy bueno para visitar en un viaje de vacaciones. Combinación de una estructura natural con un menú internacional. Muy buena carta de vinos internacionales. Ambiente relajado con una acústica que permite escuchar buena música y mantener una charla
Anniversaire de couple
Great overall experience the setting was amazing. We surprised our older kids and they loved it! Food menu was ok. We tried the Brie and Fig sauce very nice starter. Meals seemed pricey but feel that is the ambiance they are trying to preseve. I would recommend only too those that are aware of the cost.
The cave decor and setting is very cool. It was hot but they had fans running. The experience is worth it once but the food would not have us come back. If the food was better I would go back every time because the cave experience is so unique.
