My family and I went here for dinner one night while staying at the Royal Sands. In my opinion the food at this restaurant just average and the service was very slow. Maybe it was because we were in the all inclusive package with the hotel.

On a scale of 1 to 10, this restaurant is a solid 10! The staff was great, the ambiance was unequalled and the food was wonderful. It's pricey but for that special night in Cancun, it's worth it. My kids shared the seafood platter special which came with two lobster tails, calamari, fish, scallops and shrimp. Reservations, especially at sunset,... More

Based on the higher than average prices in Cancun for restaurants this restaurant has an incredible Sunday brunch deal. About $16 a person for a breakfast buffet of EPIC proportions. Bring your fat pants because you are going to need them. If you are lucky get a table on the floor by the lagoon like we did, the atmosphere is... More

This restaurant is all about its location. In my opinion the view is the only thing this place has going for itself. I will not go into details, food is average. If ever in Cancun again; will not return or recommend.

One of our favorite spots for a great Margarita while we wait for the sunset? They have great food as well. One of our favorites is the fish fingers, Calamari and their shrimp is excellent. I guess we have more than one favorite! But love their Margaritas as well!

The food is top notch and the sunset dinner is breath taking. A must do if in the area! Your room card works at this establishment if you are staying at the Royal Resorts, that is nice.

This is used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Cancun...but this time it just didn't wow us. They no longer make their Caesar salad tableside - which used to be so delicious and fun to watch them make. Both our shrimp dinners were just okay...the fried shrimp kind of dry and the mahi mahi just didn't have a... More
