Peter's Restaurant...where flavors & feeling meet...Peter really likes and wants to Cook and please his guests with a memorable lunch or dinner in a cozy setting with personal attention from himself, his wife Claudia and son Eder. Small, cozy restaurant where one feels at home while enjoying an excelent lunch or dinner. Interesting menu with a different flair in dishes and preparations, Good Wine list.

It's been my third time at Peter's, and I hope not my last. Almost everything was perfect once again - just a little downside were the shrimps this time which had a taste of refrigerator. Apart from that, the rest of the food was amazing, as was the staff. Tot ziens!

Looked on TripAdvisor for this restaurant & it was the only restaurant without a bad review! The chef & his wife were hospitable, kind, and made us feel like family. The food was amazing & well worth grabbing a cab 30+km away. They even called a cab for us & the waiter flagged it down.

Every dish was just fantastic. I started with the Pate served with a veal reduction and ginger sauce while my wife had the warm thinly sliced sea bass over salad. We both ate every morsel. Our entries were shrimp over homemade pasta and roasted duck breast with a cherry sauce (the special of the evening) over pasta. If no one were looking we would have licked our plates clean. We shared a slice of Key Lime pie. A perfect ending. Just a wonderful, wonderful dinner experience.

The best meal we have had in Cancun. This was our second year, vacationing for a month. I wish we had fond this restaurant sooner. The wine list is substantial and the Passion Fruit margarita was delicious. Next came a fresh delicious salad that was big enough to share. We had the mushroom ravioli that melted in your mouth....Fantastic! My husband had the hogfish, which was done to perfection. Served on a bed of polenta, surrounded by perfectly cooked vegetables, the fish was delicious. I had the pork chop that was so delicious and large, it will be enjoyed for my lunch tomorrow. The desert was a hard choice, but my husband is partial to Key-lime pie, and we were not disappointed. The added bonus was a tequila infused sorbet that was to die for. Chef Peter came to our table and introduced himself, asking if we had any questions. He personally took our order that made the experience personal and more intimate. The food rivaled any meal we have enjoy in NY or PHILADELPHIA. Do not miss this jem. You’ll be glad you made the time to enjoy one of the best meals Cancun has to offer.

Love this restaurant. We come to Cancun often, and enjoy the fine restaurants here. We have a gluten-free member of the family, and she discovered this restaurant last December. The staff was very understanding of her strict dietary needs, and was easily able to prepare an outstanding dinner for her. My husband and I returned again in March, and very much enjoyed the creativity and tastiness of our dinner, as well as the very warm and friendly waitstaff. We highly recommend this restaurant!

Sent my nephew and his wife to Peters for a date night while I babysat their two babies. They were in love with the mushroom ravioli and really enjoyed beef brisket and smoked salmon dishes. Service was amazing and Eder helped me surprise them with my prepayment of their meal. Too bad for them they were too full to enjoy one of the many fabulous desserts. Thanks Peter, Claudia and Eder for making their evening one to remember

Peter's is a real treat for foodies and you can never go wrong here. Peter's provides exceptional food and service - the 2 things that really matter in a restaurant experience. I learned a while ago to book my reservations in advance so that when I get to Cancun I can enjoy the "magic" that happens at this restaurant. This time it was succulent lamb tenderloin and sublime chocolate mousse. They also have a very good wine list with excellent Mexican wines. Thank you to Peter, Claudia, & Eddy for always making dining with you such a memorable experience!

Always a phenomenal meal and service. The special fish from the Sea of Cortez was remarkable and Peters secret sauce was addictive. Party of 6 enjoyed brisket, ribs, lamb and hogfish. I love the Carajillo!!! Remains our favourite restaurant in all of Cancun. We will see you soon.

Peter’s is the best restaurant in Cancun. The food is always fresh and flavorful. Our favorites are the lemon grass soup, mushroom ravioli, hog fish, chicken breast stuffed with shrimp, and the ribs. We love everything we have ever tried there. Peter always comes around to each table to make sure everyone is happy with their meals. Of course we always are.

This is about our 5th or 6th visit to Peters and we keep trying a lot of our favourites along with new dishes. Everyone has simply lived their meals. Cocktails are lovely, service exemplary and food hot and served with a pleasant and tasty experience. We’ll be back again and again- still our numero uno choice in Cancún.

My wife love the special boquinette but I was less impressed with the brisket (quite a challenge in Mexico). The place was small and pleasant, a bit overlit but OK. The service was quite good and pleasant. The place was hard to find as we were walking there. We saw no signage anywhere but recognized Peter when we saw him through the window. We do plan to return next year.

Always our favourite restaurant in Cancun. Peter’s cuisine is delicious in taste and presentation. It’s always a struggle on which dish to have as they are all equally superb. Again, the tequila sunrise dessert will change your life! We’ll be back many more times this winter.

Nicely prepared meals with excellent flavours. Good assortment to pick from for a small restaurant. Better to reserve as limited seating and only open from 6 to 10 in the evening.
