Went out on a Friday night to a seafood restaurant. My wife ate crab cakes and raved about the meal. I ate seafood stuffed fish. A fish fillet stuffed with crab, shrimp, octopus, mussels, etc. I can't stop thinking about that meal. We will go back again before leaving Mexico.

Every time we go to Cancun our first restaurant to visit is Captain's Cove. We love sitting on the deck by the lagoon and watching the sunset. Their garlic rolls and butter are very tasty. We ordered the tuna and coconut shrimp and both were excellent. The service started out very good but was mixed after that - had to... More

Captain's Cove is a good restaurant. But I have a tip for those of you who like your fish cooked the way I do. I like fish that has been pan fried with a little bit of browning evidenced by a light crust. I never know how to order it. So my husband and I ordered the grouper which was... More

We took a party of seven to the Captain's Cove. The opening round of drinks and appetizers were delightful. The guacamole was very fresh and season just a bit spicy which I enjoy. The soups and fish main courses were exceptionally well prepared and presented. The wait staff was very helpful and accommodating, as our group included vegetarians and some... More

The Captain's Cove Restaurant is centrally located in the hotel zone and serves excellent food choices from fresh fish, chicken, beef etc. As a bonus the meals are reasonably priced. The atmosphere is very nice with a great water view and sunset.

Really spectacular food available, especially the Catch of the Day. Try to leave room for dessert (I dare you) and you won't be disappointed. We should have shared a dessert since neither of us could finish ours. It was difficult to stop even after we were overfull.
