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

Loved the view of the lagoon in the evening while we ate. All of the food was excellent and so were the drinks. The music was not too loud so you could hear the table conversations and the wait staff was excellent.

Maybe this place left a bad taste in my mouth because it was our first lunch the day after we arrived in Cancun. The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 1pm. A couple were just leaving. The food was really good and I know Cancun is expensive everywhere in the resort zone but $121 for four for lunch just... More

We went here twice on our vacation between July 10-15. It was part of our all inclusive. The food here was the best I have ever ate. I had shrimp fettuccini the first night. Lots of big huge shrimp in it and the sauce was to die for. Second time I ate their Three Cheese Mac and Cheese. The name... More

Over the years, we've hade many beautiful sunset dinners there and tonight was no different. Stuffed shrimp, fried shrimp & shrimp Alfredo were several of the plates at our table of 6...all fantastic. Service... More
