We were very disappointed with Captain's Cove. We had gotten recommendations and good reviews, but it didn't measure up. The service and atmosphere were good, but the food was not. The crab stuffed shrimp was overcooked with plain side items. The salmon was boring. Many other fabulous places to eat in Cancun. Why waste your time with average?!
My family has been to Cancun many times, and one trip, we ate here every meal! They had an excellent breakfast buffet and their dinners were phenomenal! The waiters are like your best friends when you arrive also. The atmosphere is amazing! Being right on the lagoon was gorgeous!
My wife and I stay at the Royal Resorts across from Captains Cove and we have made it a tradition to visit Captains Cove the first evening in Cancun. We love to eat outside overlooking the lagoon. The food is very good. It is not gourmet, but it fits well with the atmosphere. This is a must visit for those staying at the Royal Resorts.
In a town of bland, expensive restaurants, Captain's Cove is a wonderful exception to the rule. You can't get any better food or price at any restaurant in the area: for USD $10/person you can get a great breakfast buffet where they make fresh omelets and waffles and you can choose from much fresh fruit and juice, hot Mexican entrees, breads/pastries and cereal if somehow nothing else sounds better...coffee is also included. My friend and I went for brunch every day and didn't eat again until dinner, except the day we left and then we went for lunch--fantastic chicken fajitas. Highly, highly recommend going.
