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

My brother & I shared a seafood platter for two which could have feed 3. It was so delicious! Our waiter's Celerino & Rodrigo where very attentive and professional. We order a strawberry... 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.

I took a cab from the Royal Sands to there ($10). The restaurant was practically empty the night and got me worried, but food was great. I had lobster on the first night and bay scallop dish on the second night and both were good. It took for a while to get my main dish, but I think that's Cancun... More

The menu said stuffed grouper but forgot to mention there were mushrooms in the stuffing as well. I dislike mushrooms and would not have ordered it. The color of the stuffing was the color of the mushrooms and I found it unappealing. The shrimp lived up to their name, they were so small in the stuffing. The grouper had some... More

Four of us went there to eat on a Thursday evening at half six. It wasn't overly busy and the staff were very attentive and polite. Two of us had the Captains Shrimps for starters and they were fabulous. One of us had the shrimp and crab dumplings and they were good too. The other had the shrimp cocktail which... More

The quintessential dining experience on the bay! The views are amazing, as was the food. I have not eaten in a restaurant on my holiday in recent memory where the staff was over the top polite and it was actually genuine. Dining here is an absolute must!

Great evening for our family. The food was fantastic. Felix provided first class service for us throughout the evening. We were fortunate enough to get a chance to speak to Hector, the manager. With leadership like this, it's easy to see why the staff was such a pleasure. We look forward to going back next time we are in Cancun.

The service and food is amazing here. We come here every time we are in Cancun and it seems to get better each time. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was delicious and finished my meal off with Mayan coffee. If you are lucky you'll get to see one of the resident crocodiles in the lagoon. Be sure to... More
