I found this restaurant whilst researching Playa Del Carmen.

This restaurant is amazing! I thought Buddakan restaurant in New York where I proposed was romantic though Alux is a very very close second.

If I wasn't already married to the Duchess today, l would have definately proposed tonight.

Highly recommend this venue!

Absolutely incredible experience. Romantic and unique, one of a kind. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the evening was unsurpassed. Our waiter Allessio was outstanding. His knowledge, professionalism, warmth and talent were quickly realized and never have we had such an engaged experience. He is a true asset to Alux. We will recommend this restaurant over and over again and will hope to visit during each of our trips to Playa Del Carmen. A MUST DO. Truly remarkable!!

Skip the bread (cold generic roll) at the beginning & you'll be set. The venison app was SO good & the salmon (which I'm picky about) was excellent as well. But, what stood out the most was Dolly -- she was there if you even thought about needing something. Impeccable service.
The atmosphere cannot be beat. We thoroughly delighted in roaming the cave & seeing all the hidden crevices. I want to make up an even just to have a party here!

This restaurant should be taken off your restaurants to recommend.
The chef is a buffoon and all the culinary gymnastics he is doing is falling to deaf ears.
The management is clueless on customer service.
The wine list is overpriced rubbish selection.
The quality of food was putrid and quite possibly the worst food in Latin America.
This is from a executive chef and restaurateur.
The seafood was rancid and overcooked beyond belief. The Sierra fish was littered with 25-30 small bones. Someone could have been seriously injured by this.
The wine list and food menu had several spelling errors.
I recommend this place to just sit at the bar and take in the environs.
The food is rubbish and it's a big tourist TRAP

Service was fantastic & the food was outstanding. The main problem is that there is no parking
that means that you will have to look for a place and sometimes it could take a long.
Out of that, the place it is pretty cool & proper for any special occasion

An experience you will remember for years. How many chances do you get to dine in an actual cave? Great ambiance with clever lighting that enhances the natural surfaces. Service is very good with attentive and knowledgeable servers. The cuisine is eclectic, offering dishes such as venison, wild pig, duck, and lamb. Presentation of each dish gave a nod to fine dining restaurants but left the palate wanting a little more. The space was slightly warm and humid, typical of Playa del Carmen, but there were numerous fans which created good airflow.

The restaurant is in a cave, beautifully decorated and has a great romantic ambience. The DJ played a great mix of mellow versions of popular music and some bossa nova. The food was just ok, we ordered the surf and turf meal for two. The potatoes tasted boxed. The butter for the lobster tasted like movie theatre butter. The lobster tail and shrimp was barely seasoned. The pork and beef were pretty good. The house wine was surprisingly good. I would go again and try a different meal or just go for cocktails as the environment was really nice. Highlights were the tour of the caves we were able to take and the surprise birthday cake which was really nice.

Amazing experience dining in cave. We were worried it maybe muggy or have a certain smell as it is in a cave and we were there in the July heat but the temperature and ambiance was fantastic!!!! The service was impeccable. Live music was amazing!!!!

Don’t forgot to check out the wine cellar and walk around the cave after dinner. Great food, great drinks, great experience.

Hermoso lugar, literal comes dentro de unas grutas. El menú es un poco extravagante y complejo, por lo mismo la comida pudiera no gustar a todos los paladares. Pienso que es caro, aunque el lugar hace que el precio lo valga. Buena música además.

It was a very nice atmosphere, service and meals are good. Be aware that even though this is in a cave, it can be very warm so dress cool. They have a bunch of fans but the coverage is not complete.
