It’s been 1 1/2 years since we’ve been to Cancun because of the pandemic, but we finally made it back and our first restaurant excursion was to Peter’s. It’s nice to see that in all that time nothing has changed, except for some surprisingly nice plexiglass partitions between some of the usually widely-spaced tables. The menu is exactly the same as it’s always been, which means no surprises or disappointments. Each dish has been perfected over many years and why mess with perfection? We got the two off-menu “specials,” which we’ve had before - a large veal chop over polenta with fresh veggies and duck breast over pasta with a raspberry sauce. Both were excellent. Don’t skip the mushroom ravioli appetizer or the chocolate crepe for dessert, you won’t regret either one. This small family-run restaurant has survived so far by offering excellent food at very reasonable prices and is the perfect reason to get away from the usual, expensive Hotel Zone restaurants for dinner.

We have come here often, we recently went twice last week. The quality of the food is excellent and the service is wonderful. The mushroom ravioli and incredible as is the sauce if comes with and is very savory. I had the boquinete (hog fish)_ which was incredible and on the second trip I had the veal chop which was out of this world. Deserts were great and we had key lime pie and the chocolate mousse. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone even if you are in an all inclusive you will not get this quality of food or service from any resort. Peter and his family and staff take great care of you. For those who are scared to venture off the resort, just have your concierge or the front door staff at your hotel get a cab for you and Peter and his staff will call a cab for you to take you back to your hotel when you are finished. Part of our Cancun experience is eating here and every meal is memorable and we have never left disappointed. I would recommend reservations as it is a small restaurant and everyone speaks very good English so calling is not an issue if you do not speak Spanish. We reserved our tables via facebook messenger on their facebook page. Restaurant and staff were taking all possible COVID 19 precautions with spacing of tables with plexiglass dividers between tables and temperature checks on arrival.

This family owned and run restaurant can’t try harder to please every diner. You won’t believe the food and will definitely leave fully satisfied and happy. We come at least once every trip to Cancun. Give it a try-you won’t be disappointed! (make reservations early-they can be hard to get!)

What a great little place. The food was amazing, we had the mushroom ravioli as an app OMG. Here’s a suggestion, extra bread for the sauce .
The entrees were perfect, rib eye steaks with the fixings.
Service was very friendly and helpful. And a visit by the Chef and owner was the best.
And the price, you cannot beat Peter’s
Do make reservations as it is a quaint little place.

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.
