We were at Captain's Cove for a birthday dinner. We were seated at a table next to the water and had the best sunset view. The service was attentive, accommodating, and cheerful. The red snapper steamed in a bamboo basket was delicious. Mu grilled mero was perfect. The vegetable sides were done just right, not overcooked. They brought a dessert... More

The Captain's Cove is a very good seafood place to visit. The Clam Chowder was very good served in a bowl of bread. My wife's salad was excellent. I had Mahi Mahi and it was good, but not excellent.

I had eaten at The Captains Cove Restaurant all the way back in 1988 and when we were looking for somewhere to dine I said why not? If its lasted this long they have to be doing something right. We went in were greet by a very friendly hostess and manger and we seated immediately. The water was very slow... More

We enjoyed our dinner, prices are a bit expensive, but food and service are great. I loved the view of the lagoon, it was romantic and the service was excellent.
