We were staying at Paradisus Palma Real Resort and met some regular guests who suggested we try this restaurant as it was in their words "something not to miss". So 8 of us got transported to the restaurant and had a most delightful evening. We put ourselves in their hands menuwise and were served family-style, starting with hot homemade potato... More

Walk right off the beach, doesn't matter what you are wearing, seating is outdoors or in an open air covered area. The staff are very friendly and professional. We ordered the ribeye steak and a 2 lb lobster. They bring you bettered fish and freshly made thin potato chips as a starter. We were shocked as we didn't order it.... More

We picked out our own lobster. The cut it in half and grilled it, you can watch the cook. The service was great and wish we would have went back for the fish. We paid $110 for 2 lobsters, that might be high end but we were enjoying the moment.

My husband and I had dinner here our second night in town as it came recommended by several people we had asked. It did not disappoint. Treated like royalty or honeymooners by our waiter Jésus. He started us off with homemade papas fritas, salad and fried mahi mahi sticks. The homemade fries were excellent! We split the paella mixto and... More

We went to Capitan Cooks on the recommendation of a client of mine to celebrate a family birthday. Upon arriving I have to admit it wasn't exactly what I was expecting appearance-wise and the service we got was not as prompt as it is in the United States. The atmosphere was very casual, no need to dress up and beautiful... More

Located on the beach, but for me that's the only positive point. The food is greasy. I ordered a second drink and they simply forgot it until we asked for the bill.
