We couldn’t believe what an amazing location. It is so beautiful. The food is decent, not great. But the drinks we’re really good, and the location is too beautiful not to visit. This is a must see.

Das Restaurant ist in einer trockenen Cenonte oder in einer Höhle. Das macht den meisten Reiz aus. Darüber hinaus ist der Service sehr gut, das Essen qualitativ gut aber sehr exotisch und experimentell. Die Preise sind sehr teuer.

Can’t beat the atmosphere. Service was great. We ordered the land and sea. Sea was great. Land not so much. Couldn’t chew the pork. We complained to no avail. Still a cool place to see. Stay away from beef and pork.

Dining at Alux is a unique experience and is not to be missed. The facility and atmosphere is amazing; the menu is varied and interesting; the service is top notch; the food is delicious. While the location is a little off the beaten path of Playa del Carmen, do not let that deter you. It's easily accessible by taxi, and is well-staffed with personnel who both warmly welcome you and see you safely in a taxi back to your home base. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Alux and look forward to a return visit.

What a unique and romantic dining experience. We walked to the main taxi stand on 5th and it was 150 p each way. Food was lovely we had the octopus and the brie and figs. Dinner we had the steak and the wild pig. Steak was tender but not a great cut. Pig was very good. Our server, Manuel was very knowledgeable and helpful and gave a great tour of the cave structure. The only negative is that it was very warm. Creme brûlée was excellent as were both the regular and espresso martinis. Apps, drinks and dessert was $100 USD.

Great atmosphere - lovely food. Did feel there was a pressure to order the shared expensive dishes and for the table to order wine extras etc to ramp up the bill. Only a small thing but wait staff were super attentive and it’s definitely worth a visit... go on an empty stomach - we found the portions very generous

The food, ambiance and service was great! The price was reasonable and the cocktails was oh! la!la! I will recommend this restaurant anytime. There was only one slight negative feedback. Needs more ventilation because you wouldn’t want your guests sweating away during dinner especially when alcohol was combined.

What an experience. First of all ask for Josué. Great waiter very attentive and knowledgeable but more about that at the end. Also open table doesn’t mention it but they have private settings for dinner you might want to ask about those. My date and myself are very picky eaters but we went for the experience. She had the New York I had the Bison both were very unique and great. She had the lobster bisque for appetizer and she’s had had them all over Chicago and this one was her favorite by far. The drinks were also unique. Great dinner didn’t bother us and very attentive. Got a free cake by showing it was my birthday also as we went to Cancun for my birthday. They did ask for proof. At the end Josué offered to show us the cave and took us to various locations so it was also a mint adventure. My date was able to go even in heals so it wasn’t hard to do. Great experience and recommend Josué as your waiter.

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!!
