Great seafood right on the beach. A little hard to find but its there. They have a nice patio on the beach and you can look right at the ocean and the white sandy beach. The service was ok, and the food was good. The price was a bit much, but we were on the beach. If you like seafood... More

We ordered a few seafood platters and other shrimp and crab dishes, food was filling and delicious, they also brought us chips, fried plantains and salad. Prices are abit... More

This is a nice locale, nothing fancy but a touristy "beach' restaurant. The seafood is very fresh and the kitchen is usually reliable. This is a place to enjoy fried or broiled seafood with cold beer, with average service and a nice view, but not a whole lot more.

Came as a large party for lunch and were taken care of very well. We picked out the fish which were prepared on the grill. The soup was excellent. Nice place to eat off the resort.

One of our friends invited us for dinner here and it was ok. The staff was friendly but lacked attention to detail. I'm told all the seafood they serve is caught that same day. I'm not really a fan of seafood with the shell on but it was ok. The first lobster I tried was a bit over cooked, very... More

After a long walk down the beach from our condo we came across Captain Cook. It's quite a walk from where we were staying and the beach is eroded along the way so it makes the walk challenging in places. We arrived and were seated quickly. I am quite amazed that the servers and waiters at restaurants in PC do... More

Really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The paella, the seafood grill, the coconut flavoured rice and ice cream were real treats. Everything was cooked to perfection - nicely grilled fish that was still juicy on the inside. The service was very patient ( we were struggling with our limited Spanish), explained what we were interested in and helping us... More
