The attention to us at or table was beyond what we normally receive at any restaurant. Drinks, dinner, dessert were all high quality. We will make this a regular visit... read more

What a great dining experience for couples or familes!! The open air deck has breathtaking views of the lagoon and sunset and if you are really lucky you will get to see a crocodile swim up for a evening snack!!!

We tried captain's cove because it was right across the street from our hotel- The Emporio. The food was good but more like something you'd get at a wedding or banquet hall back home than a real authentic Mexican meal/experience. This place seems to be related to the Royal resorts and they bus guests in from the various resorts. When... More

We ate at this restaurant three times during our recent trip to Cancun: Dinner: I ordered the steak which was bad. My fellow dinners ate fish which was great. It was my faust to eat steak in a seafood restaurant. Sunday Brunch: Great brunch. They serve at least 20 different dishes. Great for people while brunch and love to eat... More

Service was very good. The special grouper stuffed fillet was very good. 3 of use had the special and agreed it was delicious. The only problem was the loud music coming from Pancho & Willy's. They need a wall to separate the and diffuse the sound. Overall it has a nice sunset view.

We just had lunch here and enjoyed a bread bowl of clam chowder and seafood pizza. The pizza had a thin crust that was nice and light. We also received some fresh baked bread pull apart rolls that melted in your mouth. The bill was reasonable for the quality of the food we received. The service was very professional too.

We visited this restaurant recently and had a great meal with 2 additional couples. The meals were a mixture of steak and seafood. All the meals were excellently prepared and very flavorful. The waitstaff was excellent. We will return for sure!!!

Does not seem to have as much available as last year..The Outdoor Bar somehow lost its liquor license so all drinks have to come from inside. It is known as Pancho Willys.

We dined here twice, both times for dinner. I highly recommend the Captains's Shrimp for an appetizer and the Mexican Buffet they have on Monday nights. The Mexican Buffet includes a really nicely done dance show where they highlight the diverse areas of Mexico. It's a great show for all ages so don't be afraid to bring the kids.They also... More
