La creación y formación de la caverna es milenaria. En este entorno de verdaderos palacios subterráneos decorados con singulares estalactitas y estalagmitas usted podrá disfrutar de un espectáculo natural.
Con una capacidad de atención de mas de 250 comensales, nuestra caverna cuenta con diversos ambientes diseñados para que usted disfrute al máximo de su estancia, todos acompañados por nuestra alta cocina que nos distingue en esta región de la Riviera Maya, y por supuesto una amplia barra de Bebidas Nacionales e Internacionales.
Para crear un restaurante en esta magnifica caverna, la cocina tuvo que ubicarse en la superficie, por lo cual los tiempos de espera son un poco mas prolongados.
Disfruta de una deliciosa cena en un entorno natural y místico. Alux Restaurant es una experiencia única e inolvidable.
NOTA: Solamente aceptamos menores de 12 años antes de las 7:30 PM
Excelente lugar, instalaciones impresionantes y atencion incomparable, los alimenos no son lo mejor del lugar pero el ambiente y atencion se lo llevan
L'ambiance est bien, le service est excellent et la bouffe est divine! Profitez-en!
Malisima la crema del día se le comentó al mesero y no hizo absolutamente nada solo asintió, el dorado en salsa de almejas de regular a malo (pastoso), los otros dos platillos que ordenamos de regular a bien (por el precio esperaba mejor calidad y sabor de los alimentos), definitivamente un hermoso lugar pero no cumple la expectativa en alimentos, (aunque andaban estresados cerca de nuestra mesa por una pareja que se les fué creo sin pagar.
First food: The food was average, especially for what we were paying. The seafood was actually pretty good, but the steak was average. The desert was very good.
The setting: It is a very unique atmosphere. The whole restaurant is inside of a cave. I would think some people would like this a lot but some people would be very creeped out. If you are claustrophobic it will bother you. But it is incredibly unique, just kind of weird. It seems like it is one of those places, like so many, where the gimmicky atmosphere makes for a lazy kitchen. I wouldn’t go back although it was a different experience. And if you like caves, definitely walk all through the restaurant. It’s quite extraordinary to have a cavern right there below the street in downtown Playa del Carmen.
It was way over priced. Didn’t let me get what I want. Not worth it
This restaurant is truly a hidden gem! The food and service was exceptional!
Interesting setting and nice service. Menu was overly complicated and a bit odd. Wild boar, buffalo, grasshoppers?? The simple house salad, while tasty, had too many ingredients. I am not a picky person, but struggled to make a selection. Chose the salmon which was a good, safe choice.
Llegamos temprano a las 6:30 de la tarde. El restaurante estaba medio basio, pero nos sentaron al lado de otra pareja. El ambiente era increible en una cueva sin fin. La comida la servieron bastante rapido. Las porciones eran demasiado pequeno. Le conteste a mi esposa que no me llenara una muela. El "steak" (bistec) mio era chiquito, acompanado con tres papitas pequenas. Mi esposa le servieron dos "scallops" de pequeno tamano y dos costillas de "lamb". La cuenta era bastante grande, considerando que salimos con hambre.
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Wonderful presentation and service. Very good food, music and ambience. Go! Dine in a cave with a Cenote!
A wonderful dinner, with a beautiful setting. Everything was top notch.
Excelente servicio y todo un concepto nuevo, muy grata experiencia
Un lugar bonito con muy buen servicio pero la comida no fue lo que esperábamos. Se tardan un poco en llevar los alimentos a la mesa por lo que ofrecen un recorrido por el lugar, el cual se encuentra ambientado con luces.
Es un lugar diferente e interesante pero la comida podría estar mejor.
Excellent service. Very attentive server! Will definitely come back!
We took family who were visiting us for their first visit. Great service. Dolly was our server and she was excellent, very friendly. Food was delicious. Selected wine from the Cava. Music was perfect, not too loud, great mix. Wonderful visit.
Food is incredibly overpriced and although presentation is beautiful the dishes had no taste, steak was really fatty and chewy, duck tasteless as well the buffalo. Entrees also had no flavor very very bland. $4000 pesos for 3 people for below average food was painful. They need to step up their game when there are so many incredible restaurants in playa
Amazing place. Took a group of 6 people and everyone said it was the best restaurant they've ever been to
While vacationing in Playa we came across Alux in Instagram and decided it was a must. Who wouldn’t want to eat in a cenote?! So glad we did! The staff, including our waiter Adair, were pleasant, professional and offered great service. The cocktails were very well done and the food was delicious. We had the Land and Sea; the lobster were a very good size and the steak was very tasty. I wasn’t a fan of the pork and my only complaint would be the vegetable. There was a pea/corn medley that looked like something out of a bag with some zucchini and carrots added. It dulled down the meal in my opinion. Cheesecake was delicious, not too rich and perfect size. After eating we wandered through the rest of the cenote and saw the private eating areas within. The location is amazing and can’t be topped. Great ambiance and something we are so glad to have experienced.
Took our breath away. Everything was unique and awe inspiring, for example the cenote tour, the live music and the pick-your-own wine cellar.
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.
