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

We visited this restaurant as part of our Royal Sands all inclusive package. The food and service was superb! My husband loved his lamb, and my steak was perfect. We had the flaming coffee for dessert. We both thought it was the best meal of our entire trip.

A five star restaurant. Quiet atmosphere and top-service. I would not say a family restaurant although some kids with family were here. Excellent steaks and seafood. Fine wine selection with attention to detail by waiters. Expensive but included in all inclusive package through Royal Resorts if staying with them. Great bargain!

This restaurant has been a hidden pearl at the Royal Resorts for many years. Originally located in the Royal Mayan, it was relocated to the Royal Islander after the Mayan was sold, insuring it's availability for at least another few years. White linen tablecloths, a tuxedo clad maitre d' and live music from classical guitarist Jorge Duran provide an ambiance... More
