I thought Pelicano's would be the "basic" restaurant choice but it was my favorite. I enjoyed the food here more than the other specialty restaurants at The Royal.

We at lunch here every day. It is located next to the pool and beach with a nice open seating area for outside dining. Very nice breeze from the ocean. The taco bar was good and the mango sherbet is the best!

The breaded shrimp was great and the surprise potatoes where the best ever. I order the hotdog. Was a bit disappointed that it was not crispy/grilled. The buffet chicken wings were delicious. The service impeccable. This is a nice place to stop for a bite.
