Now that the restaurant has moved to the Royal Islander it was time to give it a try. We had eaten many times at El Conquistador when it was located in the Mayan and were always quite pleased with the experience. It is an elegant restaurant with a menu that goes along with that elegance. During your meal a classical... More

Fantastic food at El Conquistador...setting leaves a little to be desired from the outside, but the ambience once in was excellent. Great food (and the most fantastic onion & parmesan warm bread I have ever eaten)...Portobello mushroom stuffed with seafood to start, and a delicious King prawn main course. Great wine choice too. Service was attentive and friendly but not... More

Since it moved to the Royal Islander, we did not know what to expect. Caesar Salad best we have had, prepared table side. We had the Filet Mignon, it came out medium rare as we ordered. When Jorge Duran was setting up he recognized us from previous visits and played all our favorite music, even Malaguana, which is very difficult... More

We had dinner last night at the Conquistador, it was the best meal of our 8 day vacation!! The atmosphere was elegant, the staff was very attentive and the food was top notch. Our waiter, Leonel was wonderful, suggested items we should try and explained how dishes we were interested in were prepared. If you're looking for a fabulous meal... More

Last year when we met Jesus, the manager of El Conquistador for many years and heard that they were going to reopen I was very excited. It was for 20+ years my very favorite restaurant in Cancun with Flambee main dishes and many table preparations, although they had reduced the number in the last two years in the Mayan. Well...

Quiet, romantic restaurant with wonderful steaks & seafood. The food is displayed artistically & waiter makes dessert a production. Definitely a great dining experience. We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary here and staff made us feel special.
