We enjoyed this restaurant so much we ended up visiting here three times during our week stay at the Royal Sands. The service was incredible and there were so many choices on the menu. Our favorites were the mussels, captain's shrimp, fresh grouper, and the fillet (which was a surcharge but WELL worth it.) The view of the bay was beautiful and the one night we were there we saw crocodiles in the water. It was a short bus ride from the resort and we highly recommend this restaurant!

The sun sets on your spectacular day in Cancun and you are on the water dining with a love one and what could be better!
You sip your tequila/margarita as the sun sets and they serve you a cervice to die for and then just the best blackened tuna and risotto you ever had. Top it off with anyone of the excellent desserts and you have had a five star meal!
Any night there becomes a celebration. Enjoy the best Cancun has to offer

Meals at this restaurant are now included as part of the Royal Resorts all-inclusive package (and it remains open to the general public). We hesitated going because we thought the quality of the food might have slipped, but our dinner was so good, we went again the next night ... and probably would have returned again if our visit had lasted longer. An elegant, bay view outdoor seating area or a nicely appointed indoor area make it hard to choose where to sit. But no matter where, when the food arrives, it's wonderful. As an amuse, the waiting brings a parmesan bread that's absolutely delicious. Then, how about a Caesar salad prepared table side, followed by "right off the boat" seafood. Not enough? What till you see the desserts. There is nothing about my experience there that wasn't top drawer. If you're in Cancun, make sure you spend at least one evening here.

We visit Cancun every year and always enjoy our meal. The staff is attentive and very courteous. The food is wonderful from the appetizers, Caesars Salad made table side, main course,drinks and dessert. Some times Poncho or any of his crocodile friends may make an appearance but not the night we visited. Sitting on the porch overlooking the lagoon was wonderful especially since we were able to watch the sun set. Do not know what was happening the night but there was a sewer odor that was not very appealing while eating. This was the first time over all the years we noticed this. Hopefully it will be corrected next year when we return.
