This is a place that deserves your support to recover from Covid. Every part of our visit was perfect--the food, the drinks, the staff, the owner. They are VERY health conscious and it was completely safe to be there.

I couldn't get the hogfish since the duck breast special was calling me! And Key Lime pie comes with an accompaniment of lime sorbet with a little tequila thrown in.

My husband tried the camembert/poached pear dessert which was also unique, along with the chefs special coffee--they add in as much vanilla bean soaked brandy as you want.

All in all, an experience we will be repeating when we are back in Cancun.

I rate this up there with Les Cepages Restaurant. Chef is gifted and wait staff attentive. I loved my porcini chicken as well as the duck. Chocolate Mouse was the best ever!

Every year we visit Peter's at least twice and sometimes 3 times over a 3 week period. There are a lot of excellent restaurants in Cancun, but in my opinion, Peter's is in the top 5 every year. Peter's has taken excellent precautions to deal with the Corona virus. You come in and wash your hands before being allowed to enter and your temperature is also taken. The tables are separated by partitions. The lamb on the menu and the salmon are always favorites. I like the mushroom ravioli appetizer as well and we almost always get this. My recommendation is that if there is a veal special, get it. You will thank me later. I wish the veal marsala was still on the menu, but usually there is some veal. Other dishes are excellent as well. Never had a bad meal here. Chef Peter and his wife, Claudia are lovely people and will visit with you during the meal to see if you are happy. The Claudia Salad (named after her) is well worth a taste. Two can easily share one salad. The desserts are also great. Don't think you can do wrong at Peter's.
