there are just not enough supurlatives to describe our experience at El Conquistador. From start to finish this meal surpassed everything we have experienced in many trips to Cancun for an exquisite true restaurant experience. This is clearly a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion or to just have the special dinner while in Cancun. We would have gladly... More

The food is mind blowing...terrific combination of new unique flavors. The Chef has done an outstanding job with French cuisine and menu. Their flambeed coffee and deserts ( flambeed banana) not to be missed. A must visit while in Cancun!

We visited this highly rated restaurant and we were seriously disappointed. We had 6 persons in our party. When we checked in the Manager stopped and took 2 phone reservations while we waited instead of putting them on hold and seating our party. We were seated in an area of the restaurant where the wait staff order drinks from the... More

We came in a large group and El Conquistador was so accommodating. We didn't realize they closed at 10pm, but they didn't say anything and we were there till 11pm. The vegetable ceviche, lamb chops, osso bucco, mushroom cheese dish, and desserts were all delicious. Was a great experience all around.

We went here twice as part of our all inclusive package at one of the the Royal hotels. We have been to some really nice restaurants around the world, and El Conquistador is right up there with the best. The ambiance and high quality food set this place apart from the other restaurants we visited in the area. The waiters... More

Located right at our hotel, The Royal Islander, we had the best meal of our vacation here. The prices are slightly spendy, but the food is defiantly worth it. Our waiter made a Cesar salad right at our table and also a banana foster. GREAT, great food and recommend to anyone, whether you are staying at a Royal Resort or... More
