Best steak

This is a romantic restaurant where dress up is appropriate. Romantic atmosphere and excellent steak. It's in Mexico, but it's not a Mexican restaurant. I consider that a not so good thing, but the steak I ordered was amazing.

The place is elegant. There was a musician playing Spanish guitar, though he threw in the coolest Spanish guitar rendition of Journey's Don't Stop Believing I've ever heard. The service and food were both divine. The staff seamlessly took excellent care of us without being intrusive. The food was exquisite. I was introduced to Mayan Coffee here, what a show... More

It was ok, but the food was really no different to the restaurant below. It's good to get out of the heat and have a better view of the pool, but after a while all the food seems to be the same but slight variations!

As Royal Islander owners we have been coming to Cancun for 14 years and have avoided this restaurant primarily due to cost. This year we broke down and had dinner there the last evening and it was the best dinner we had all week! The strong dollar really helped! The service is great and the food and presentation are every... More

Food and service were outstanding. Great place for special night out and getting a bit more dressed for dinner than casual dining. Staff was great and made 2 birthday cakes with singing. Amazing to be included in all-inclusive plan of Royal Sands. Great experience for all 15 of us!

This restaurant was a traditional last night in Cancun for us and the first visit at it's new location at the Royal Islander. I was very disappointed to experience a restaurant in need of improvement in several areas. First, the service was very slow with no particular concern for the customer. There were four in my party and we waited... More

We stayed at the Royal Sands and came here on our last night. The shuttle adventure was atrocious and we had to pay for our own way back by taxi. Live music was a very good but a little loud. Service was awful, it took 30 minutes just to order appetizers and it wasn't busy. The food that you get... More

WE have been coming to The Royals for 19 years now & this place USED to be good. I believe that all the 5 Star ratings it gets now are from OLD OWNERS that just don't get out to the other restaurants in Cancun, they stick to this for convenience so they don't have to leave the resort & experience...
