We were staying at the Royal Islander and decided to splurge one night at El Conquistador. Our service was fantastic from start to finish. We ordered three different entrees and enjoyed all along with starters and dessert. Some dishes are prepared tableside (caesar salad, bananas flambe, etc.). Live music started about 7 pm and other than getting too loud a... More

Upscale food, not your typical Mexican restaurant. Things like chateaubriand on the menu, steaks and seafood. No shorts allowed, collared shirts for men. On the grounds of the Royal Islander. If you're looking to dress up and have a great meal this is your place.

We have been going to this restaurant 2-3 times a visit in Cancun. Their tableside preparations are a delight to watch. We were disappointed in the Steak Diane as the meat had too much Worchestershire applied during cooking, making it taste a little off. Normally, this is a wonderful dish. We had the Chateaubriand and it was so tender and... More

The El Conquistador provides for a relaxing dining experience with atmosphere, classical guitar entertainment, delicious entrees, sexy coffees and tasty deserts. Your conversations will flow easily as the attentive and eager staff stealthly go about their business. When we received the check we were pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced the evening was. Highly recommended.

We went for a romantic dinner. Service and wine good. Entree ok. Mains disgusting. Lamb Osso bucco was old mutton and like rubber with bread drowned in oil. My pork was like a ham sandwich left in the sun. We drank the wine, left our mains as could not eat then and skipped desert as we were very disappointed. We... More

El Conquistador is a fine dining French restaurant in Cancun. We ate here twice. The service here is exceptional. The décor and ambiance are comparable to many high end restaurants we have been to in Paris and New York. The wine was excellent and Dubois, the sparkling Baja demi-sec wine was crisp and sweet. The food is almost perfect. I... More

It used to be in the Mayan, now it's located in the Caribbean Resort. Upscale atmosphere in a vacation destination that offers a lot of good restaurants. The service is good. the menu is average, but listening to the music of Jorge Duran makes for a pleasant evening. If it was not one of the restaurants offered in the all... More
