Description: El Cid El Moro resort is home to this comfortable palm-roofed, oceanfront seafood restaurant. Its delicious cuisine offers guests and visitors a variety of international dishes including fresh and tasty seafood in the ideal setting. Enjoy some of Mexico's most incredible sunsets from the spacious outdoor terrace as the sun dips behind the three islands. It is an experience you'll never forget.

“Good in the past, but not now”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

For years this has been one of teh premier restaraunts at El Cid. They have changed teh menu and it is no longer as attractive, but that was not the problem. My wife ordered teh Chicken Supreme whihc was supposed to be stuffed with crab, except they forgot teh crab stuffing. I ordered an Angus rib eye. It was to be with mushroomS and asparagus. I got ONE mushroom and was told that is all they put on the dish. I got ONE spear of aspargus. The two quarters of potatoes were cold and I did not eat them ven though they were listed as stuffed potatoes. Our second bottle of white wine was warm and we were told to wait till the ice bucket cooled it down. There were only about 10 tables [maybe 30%] in use. The service was slow and even ordering more wine took over 5 minutes. I just hope that the menu change did not force the change in quality of food and service. we will try it again, but would have no problem leaving if this restaraunt if these problems continue.

“Sunset and Coconut Shrimp on the Patio”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I love fresh shrimp and it doesn't get any better or bigger than at La Concha. The service was fast, the setting fabulous and the food spectacular. We spent 1 1/2 hours enjoying our meal, watching a beautiful sunset with waves crashing on the beach below. The coconut shrimp were big and juicy, crusted with fresh coconut and cooked to a golden brown. We topped the evening off with fresh ice cream and sighs as we watched the stars appear.
