The Captain's Cove is more of an upscale type eating establishment. It's not formal by any means. They boast the Prime Rib night but the menu is suitable for all nights of the week from appetizers to their main course selections. I had a steak and it was done as asked. The color of beef served in this area takes... More

Staff was very on-point and made everything feel like a smooth transition throughout the dinner. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal, including yummy desserts! Sitting on the deck by the water was nice; overall enjoyable atmosphere and a nice place for dinner.

We liked the fish a lot...wanted something lighter that night rather than the heavier meals at Puerto Madero. Sat by the lagoon. Nice service, beautiful setting.

We had a relaxing dinner here with friends. Quiet waterfront dining with good food and great service. Although the menu was somewhat limited, they did have a selection of seafood, chicken and a pasta dish. For a real treat, try the Key Lime martini!

My friend and I had an excellent meal at Captain's Cove. As an appetizer I had the Clam Chowder which was served in a bread bowl - it was very nice and fresh. My friend had the Shrimp Cocktail and really enjoyed it. We both had the Surf and Turf and I must say the lobster and the steak was... More

We must say, the service and staff were excellent, but with most things out of our country, the food just lacked flavour. We ordered the tuna tartar appie. The presentation was average at best, served flat on a plate with some sort of citrus sauce. They also brought us a bread pan which was soaked with butter. For the main,... More

I have eaten at Captain's Cove every time I have visited Cancun, which is at least once a year over the last 19 years. And the reason I keep returning to Captain's Cove is the excellent food, service, cleanliness, and location. The menu offers a huge selection of items. However, I usually choose the fresh fish, shrimp, or Caribbean lobster.... More
