All we in Cancun, we have been bragging about how good the food has been. We could not believe the improvements over the last time we were here 15 years ago. Well that was until last night. The place looks great but it was empty (should have been a sign when we had a hard time getting tables at other... More

The whole place has been upgraded and renovated- New owners and still the great food and service. If anything, the food is up a notch or two. My wife and I went by ourselves not knowing how it has changed - its wonderful. So we brought a group of eight back with us for a second try. Same great food... More

If you are looking for the reasonably priced Mexican JCCapitan, sadly it is no longer. The lovely setting and friendly staff are the same, but the menu is now upscale and MUCh more expensive. Although we were happy to see a vegan choice on the menu, the price of 170 pesos produced one quinoa stuffed pepper, no salad or even... More

My husband and I visited this place after reading trip advisor and because it was close to our hotel we decided to give it a try. It is no longer called JC Captain. I had to send my shrimp back because it was raw. Once I finally received it my husband was finished eating. They tried to give my a... More

We were concerned that it would be really expensive, but it was our last night and time to have a splurge, we were pleasantly surprised, the price was very reasonable, well worth a dining experience, it wonderful to look out over the water and sunset, great atmosphere, excellent staff, great service, staff speak very good English, and most of all...

We found this hidden gem a few years ago. Had an outstanding dinner then...and again this past Wednesday. Cancun is very slow this time of year. And we wondered if this would affect our dining experience. Well, I'm happy to report it didn't! Service was excellent. The food outstanding. And the atmosphere was beautiful. If you go, try to plan... More
