Captain’s Cove is a great restaurant right on the lagoon. Best time to go is shortly before sunset and sit outside and you will get some beautiful pictures. The food is very good with a varied menu, not just seafood. Appetizers, main courses and desserts...are all very good. The service is excellent also. Our waiter, Saulo, was very personable with a great sense of humor and provided us with excellent service. We have been going here for many years. An added bonus is that they have a couple resident crocodiles that swim up every evening looking for some food and they have named them Pancho and Willy. Be sure to watch for them:)More

This restaurant is partnered with the Royal Resorts. Service and servers are friendly and helpful. Our experience over the years is to stick with fish or pasta. Don't even care for the burgers anywhere. Extra bonus is the crocodiles living under the deck. Will come...out for food thrown over. And any fish we have ever ordered was outstanding.More

An absolute wonderful experience! We loved the atmosphere, the food, and most of all our exceptional waiter Jesus! He made our dining experience as he was very kind, funny, personable and very attentive. I have dined all over the world and he is one of...the best and most personable waiters I have ever had. Also is young assistant Luis, very sweet.More

Francisco was our waiter and he was excellent. Very knowledgeable about dietary restrictions and was very attentive to our needs. The setting is beautiful and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset while eating dinner. The 2 crocodiles waiting for tidbits were fascinating to watch at a safe...distance. The Caribbean shrimp appetizer and beet salad were my favorites. Lots of choices for vegetarians. Beautiful live singer serenaded the guests. Her voice was lovely. Shuttle service to and from the royal sands was efficient and friendly as well as all the wait staff.More

As always one of our favorites. Hector, our server and Brian his assistant, were very attentive. The food was very good, as usual. We had the ceviche and beef carpaccio for appetizers which were excellent. My husband had the skirt steak and I had the...asparagus soup and both were delicious. After over 20 years of visiting Cancun, Captain’s Cove is still on the top of our favorite restaurant. Plus the added entertainment should an alligator swim up. Pancho, RIP. Charlie and Willie looking forward to our next visit.More

Last year we were disappointed with Captain’s Cove but this year was back to the excellence we expected from previous years. Outstanding service from Francisco and the food was delicious. Highly recommend to revisit if you had a bad experience last year.

Captain’s Cove is one of our very favorite restaurants. We always eat there when in Cancun because of the delicious food, impeccable service and lovely atmosphere. Recently Alejandro (assisted by Aurelio) entertained us by making a fantastic table side Caesar salad. Don’t miss this Cancun...restaurant!More

The restaurant and Cancun was fairly priced. It's worth the money. The service was better than anything I have recently experienced in the US.
