Me encanto la comida excelente, nuestro mesero tambien, las bebidas de mezcal increíbles. Lo único que no nos agrado fue la hostess, una señora de cabello rubio que está en la entrada, muy déspota y te atiende como si te estuviera haciendo un favor, cuando es totalmente al revés. En fin todo lo demás excelente, excepto la señora hostess de la entrada.

Food was not what I expected considering the reviews I read in advance. It was just okay. I’d go more for the ambience along with a cocktail and dessert. It’s pricey.

One of the most romantic experiences I've ever had! The food was delicious and our sever was attentive. I highly recommend for all special occasions if you are in Playa. It does require a taxi drive if you are staying by the beach but it only took us 10 mins. Yes, go eat in a real cave!!!

Celebrated my mom’s birthday during our family trip to the Riviera Maya at Alux. What a great experience. The place, service and food are excellent. Dining inside a cenote is something that you don’t experience on a regular basis and it’s magical! The ambiance coupled with an outstanding service by Harim, who is very attentive and knowledgeable, made our experience unforgettable. But the last perfect touch was the food! Our compliments to the chef, the dishes are distinctive, innovative and delicious! Overall an amazing experience we highly recommend!!

Alux made my anniversary dinner special. They chose the perfect table, had wonderful service and it was a posh sophisticated atmosphere. The food was impeccable and the prehispánica dishes were superb. The presentation of the food was artistic. What a wonderful culinary and cultural experience. It was a true fusion of modern and prehispánica Mexico. The cenote transports you back in time while the decor is capture the mix of Hispanic and moorish Influences. This restaurant is worth the cost and you feel that you have a valued customer experience. Furthermore the restaurant is following strict Covid guidelines with hand sanitizer and masks. This was an important decision when making the reservation and I am happy to say that all staff and patrons follow the guidelines. Lastly don’t worry about taxi to and from the place, they arrange taxi service to go back to your hotel and they take credit card. A total stress free experience!! It is very humid and they have fans but wear light clothing.

The hostess Alba was extremely unwelcoming and rude. We spoke Spanish so there was no language barrier. Alba made unnecessary comments and is probably one of it not the worse host I have ever come across at a restaurant. Nevertheless, the restaurant was unique and our waiter was great.
