We ate here because it was included in our all inclusive package at our hotel. What a great place! Great selection & food was delicious. We went at 6:30 & there were 7 in our group - 5 adults & 2 kids. We were seated right away. Didn't wait long for our food either.

Loved the fresh shrimp cocktail and the grilled shrimp dinner. Captains Cove is an authentic seafood restaurant across the boulevard from the OMNI CANCUN.

We sat on the patio overlooking the water. This was such a beautiful setting in the evening. The service was friendly and responsive and the food and drink were very good.

We both had fish and it was delicious! The view over the lagoon and the city was very pretty, and we even saw a crocodile swimming by!

My family and I travel to Cancun almost every year and we always visit Captain's Cove at least once, as it is very close to the hotel where we stay. The food here is quite good, and the atmosphere is nice, particularly in the outdoor seating area overlooking the lagoon. One really neat feature are the large crocodiles which swim... More

favorite lagoon sunset dinner location. Wonderful selection of fresh seafood and steaks at a good price. Add a margarita or Mexican coffee while enjoying the sunset for special end to your day. Service is excellent

Had a table on the patio to view the sunset, I would recomment this. The food was excellent. We had the grouper and it was one of the best meals ever.

We had a great dinner for seven. We had a table on the bay with an amazing view of the sunset. Our service was perfect and everybody enjoyed their meals. The fresh fish is fabulous and kids enjoyed their meals as well.

I realize our base of experience is limited(msp, Mannys, Ruth Chris). That being said, 2 stars max on our trip (2/10/16) seated near projection screen lower level(older male server). Location and food was the only reason for this rating. Lagoon side offers great alternative to the ocean view with wildlife! Service was less then desirable/in fact a self-service at best.... More
