Gourmet food in Cancun! One of the best meals ever, duck breast and veal chop specials. Talked with the owners for over 20 minutes, extremely friendly and hospitable. Our first time there, will be back again.
It is such a treasure to travel to Cancun from Maine and know that we will have the finest meal at Peter's Restaurant. And the gracious Peter and Claudia and their son will come and say hello and check with you on your dinner. Lovely and talented chefs who prepare the finest meal for you all the time.
An excellent, but very small restaurant. Difficult to reserve during the high resort season in Mexico. The four of us ordered 10 different items during our dinner and enjoyed them all -- we sampled around the table!
Great food and service. You know it’s special when the owner/chef goes to each table and explains the menu and returns later to be sure your meal was good. I would always recommend this restaurant.
We always return to Peter’s Restaurant. A highlight of our vacation!!
This is not a restaurant that we would have chosen if we had been driving by. In fact we drove past it a few times before we found it. It's small and unassuming and very simply decorated inside but the food is another story!
The chef and owner Peter comes to the table and introduces himself and discusses the menu. We shared a mushroom ravioli which was so delicious that we sent back a clean plate which we had scraped clean with bread in the sauce. That was one of my best dishes. The veal chop was excellent and very tender.the chocolate mousse at the end was wonderful .
After every course Peters wife would ask us if we enjoyed the food .It seems as if some people in the restaurant knew the owners well and most people left with hugs as if they were old friends.
The decor in the restaurant is quite basic -not on the same level as the food so it's a casual restaurant with delicious food.
We will definitely be back next time we are in Cancun
Exceptional service and outstanding food. Definitely will return.
We were staying in cancun and it was a short 15 min drive from the beach strip. The food was amazing and everyone was so friendly. We had no problem getting a cab when we were done. Price was great for the food we got!
Best meal of our entire trip, hands down! Staff was very helpful with their recommendations, which were all fabulous!
Our dinner was exceptional. Everything we ordered was incredible, from the salads to the the Shrimp Stuffed Chicken Breast and the Tamarind Ribs to the Key Lime Pie dessert. Highly recommended if you are in Cancun. We also had a wonderful bottle of Chilean wine.
Peter's Restaurant is fine dining at its best! We had one of the best dinners we've ever experienced, and certainly the best in Cancun. The smoked salmon, the duck, the bouillabaisse soup, even the salad were all spectacular! Finish off your meal with the chocolate and banana crepes, or the key lime pie. You won't be disappointed with this gem of a restaurant, and Chef/Owner will even pay a visit to your table for a chat.
Amazing food and great service! Go for the smoked salmon as it’s the best I’ve ever had! Will go back again and again
Peters food is absolutely fantastic. Small restaurant where you meet the chef! Fresh fish is delicious and make room for the key lime pie. The best! We always make a stop at peters for dinner on our trips to Cancun.
Absolutely love this restaurant. We were in Cancun for 7 days and we ate there twice. The hogfish is great. Love the herb butter on the bread. The restaurant was recommended to me by two guys I met on the golf course. Best recommendation ever.
What a wonderful evening. Food was brilliant! Service was professional and warm. We will definitely return every time we come to Cancún!
Downtown, away from the hustle and bustle of the Hotel zone. Peter's is an outstanding dining experience....delicious cuisine, friendly and attentive service, and a warm, quiet atmosphere. Chef Peter stops by your table to chat and extend his gratitude. Truly, a neighborhood gem.
Awesome. Met a couple from Portland OREGON. Shared Magellan scotch
Every trip we make to Cancun would not be complete without a couple of visits to Peters Restaurant. They become the standard for all of the other restaurants we visit and they still come out ahead
Truly a hidden gem!! Pete’s is well worth the trip to downtown (el Centro.) We dined there 2 nights in a row. The ribs were outstanding with a great presentation. The Desserts are out of this world! Pete’s certainly lives up to the word of mouth hype.
Very good meal and reasonably priced with shared salad, two entrees, dessert and bottle wine for 1500 pesos plus tip. Highly recommend for an enjoyable evening. Reservation advised depending on season and day of week.
Great service, attention to detail in every way. Love the family and how they bring it all together. Can't wait to go back.
The food at this place was amazing. We were late for a show and they were VERY accommodating. When I got the bill, I thought it was a mistake. It was much lower than I expected.
As always, Peter's remains our favorite place to dine in Cancun. We've spent 30 months in the last 5 years living in Cancun, so we have sampled nearly every restaurant both on the Hotel Zone and in Centro Cancun. While there are many very good dining choices, no other spot combines such a varied and balanced menu, a sophisticated European chef's touch, personalized and friendly service and a simple but cozy ambiance quite as constantly and authentically as Peter's. We've turned many friends on to Peter's and they're now regulars when in Cancun. Looking forward to our next meal there.
Excellent food, great service, ambiance and overall experience. Upon sitting, Peter came to introduce himself while also checking-in after our meal. Order the hogfish main & and mushroom ravioli appetizer! If you are looking to eat off-resort, you must go here.
Fantastic place! So glad we found Peters. The food was wonderful, Chef Peter greeted us in person and discussed the menu. The service was great and non-rushed. We tried multiple starters and sampled each other's main dishes (hogfish and the ribs) and there were great! The dessert was awesome (we tried the Key Lime and one of the parfaits).
Only suggestions are to trim the palm tree in front to make the address and business sign easier to see, and to consider placing something in the front window to block the headlights of those who are parking.
A wonderful dining experience in a small but cozy setting. The owners (also the outstanding chef) are gracious and charming. The food was outstanding and the music soundtrack, created by their son, was soothing, melodic, and great for dining and conversation. I would say don't walk but run to this excellent restaurant. You won't regret it!!!!
We live in Cancun 6 months and NYC 6 months each year for 5 years now and have dined at Peter's many times as a couple and with a host of friends. Rarely can you experience this level of consistency in flavorful food, understated but comfortable ambiance and welcoming service. Dining here is like being invited to a chef's home. Peter, Claudia and Eder go out of their way to ensure a fine dining experience without any pretentiousness. The chef combines a European sensibility with locally sourced ingredients to make unique flavor profiles. We are always sure that our favorite dishes will look and taste the same each time. Go and enjoy.
Peter's is a gem in Cancun. Peter visits each table. Truly gray good.
I went to Peter's after reading other reviews online. It was a little off the beaten path, but SO worth it!! The food was amazing!! And Peter even came out to chat with all of the tables. It is definitely a must visit. We will be going back!!
