10 of us ate here one night during our stay in Cancun. The meal was very good but the price was unbelievable. Only $295 for 8 adults and 2 kids with drinks. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Just back from a wonderful week in Cancun. Captain's Cove was our last dinner. We enjoyed the view of the lagoon from the spacious outdoor deck. Something for everyone on the menu- all good, good drinks & great service. A 15 minute walk from CasaMagna or quick bus trip.

Likes - convenient location across from the Emporio hotel suites and great lagoon sunset Bad - high end prices with emphasis on decorative food so not for guests of fresh, and comfortable quality and quantity preferences

This dinner was amazing. Start with the locale, it is beautiful right on the water in the most gorgeous restaurant or deck. I prefer the deck. Service was, as everywhere during our stay, excellent. Waiters made great recommendations and introduced me to a drink I never thought I'd like yet I loved it. I started with the ceviche which was... More

Loved the seafood here. I had the fish of the day, which was amazing. Sitting by the Lagoon, there were quite a few mosquitoes, but the restaurant, gave us some repellent which was handy! We also saw a crocodile in the Lagoon - that was cool! Would recommend this place!

Excellent service and great food. Inside and outside dining available. During dinner we saw a "log" floating in the water....only it was moving! Upon inquiry, our waiter told us it was an alligator! did not deter us from eating! Would definitely go back.
