We were part of the Royals All inclusive package and even though 80% of the menu items were a surcharge we decided to give it a try and glad we did. Wonderful tasting filets, rib eye and dessert. Server was top notch, so attentive! Sur...charges were worth it for this meal!More

Our waiter, Angel, was wonderful. He made us a fresh Ceasar salad, Mexican coffee and Bananas Jubilee table side. So much more than a waiter. Service was excellent and the food was top notch.More

This restaurant is located in the Royal Islander Hotel. They serve what would best be described as international cuisine—a little bit of everything. They have some interesting dishes (like mussels Rockefeller). The food is ok and so is the service. If you’re staying at the...hotel, it might be a good option if you don’t feel like going out to dinner, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat here.More

My husband and I dined at El Conquistador last night, and were served by waiter Leonel and helper Francisco. They gave excellent service by remembering our wine preferences and giving helpful suggestions for our meal. They made us feel very special, as did Jorge Duran...who provided live guitar music, and performed songs that we requested. We are looking forward to our next visit.More

We had dinner at El Conquistador last night, and the service by our waiters Angel and Yimi was outstanding. They remembered us from previous visits that were some time ago, including our names and preferences for wine and dessert. Looking forward to coming again tonight...to hear live guitar with Jorge Duran.More

We were taken care of by Leonel whose service was simply amazing! I had the Conquistador salad and the octopus with grilled vegetables as main courses. Highly recommended! After dinner you should go for a tequila cream and the half liquid brownie with ice cream....All in all loved that dinner!More

Not the same restaurant. People wearing tank tops, swimming trunks, hats at dinner. Drinks seemed small and watered down. Server didn't know the menu or what alcohol was available. It became an all inclusive restaurant and not fine dining. I have been eating at El...Conquistador since 1987 when it was at the Royal Mayan and then when it moved to the Royal Islander. Highlight was guitarist Jorge, but he doesn't play every night. He needs too.More

Highly suggest the steak diane (not on the menu); it is so delicious. We ate here so much that we ate everything on their menu and not a single item was bad. This restaurant single handedly would make me choose the all inclusive with royal...resorts again. Pro tip- if you are on the all inclusive, don't be afraid to get the items which have an upcharge, they are worth it. Great service all around.More

Yes, there are vegetarian dishes, and many items on the menu can be modified for vegetarian and vegan; just ask your waiter. They are very knowledgeable about their menu.

We went for any early dinner and found no children there. I’m not sure wether they have a children’s menu. It’s more of an up scale restaurant
