The first time I visited this restaurant was in 1989. Every time I am in Cancun, I make sure to stop in at least one time during my vacation. This year we brought a couple with us that had never visited Cancun and they had the opportunity to dine with us at Captain’s Cove.

Both couples ordered the lobster soufflé for two. I can’t say enough about this selection! Lobster tails, mussels, shrimp, fish filets, scallops and calamari. Outstanding!!!

As you can see in the first picture, the platters are the length of the server’s stand. End to end they are corner to corner on the 4 top table

Neither couple could finish all of the food on their platter and we both took to go boxes back to the Royal Islander with us. It worked out to be $37 a person on these platters!

We are heading back in March and we are looking forward to ordering this again.

Awesome dinner out celebrating a friend's birthday. Filiberto was our waiter-- he was outstanding! There was live music and the singer really worked the room. Steak was all cooked perfectly, loved the shrimp and lobster was good, too. Great drinks! Especially the featured ones. Thanks so much Fili!!

We had a delicious dinner in front of Nichupte Lagoon with some crocodile visits.
Every dish was delicious. We had the clam chowder, portobello rissotto and meat with core bone. Great service, traditional place in Cancun.

Timed our reservation so we could watch the sunset on the outside deck and it was quite worth it. Service was great and the waiter told us about two crocodiles that would show up later. We thought he was just joking until we got ready to leave and there was a big one begging for food! We had the seafood casserole for two. It really is not what I think of when one says ‘casserole’, but a platter of seafood with two lobster tails, shrimp, scallops, mussels, calamari and fish with side of vegetables and rice. Very delicious!
