Choose Captain’s Cove. Nestled on the shores of Nichupte Lagoon at the heart of the Cancun Hotel Zone, Captain’s Cove steakhouse and seafood grill is waterfront dining at its best. Offering a tempting menu of fresh seafood and prime steaks, it has been captivating visitors and locals for 30 years now… a true Cancun classic.
Come for an afternoon cocktail on the terrace and watch a spectacular sunset in shades of rose, violet and gold; you have a ringside seat in the best restaurant in Cancun. Enjoy a lobster dinner, the catch of the day cooked to perfection on the open charcoal burning grill or a juicy steak as you sit under the stars. By the light of the moon and the candles flickering in the gentle breeze you may see a stately heron in flight, fish jumping and even the occasional crocodile cruising by.
Our thatched Caribbean-style restaurant offers a choice of beautiful settings for memorable dining moments. Enjoy your meal in the air-conditioned dining room with lush tropical plants, waterfalls and tall windows offering panoramic lagoon views, or dine al fresco on the wooden deck.
Delicious cuisine, warm hospitality and impeccable service in a romantic setting, capture the moment at Captain’s Cove, one of Cancun’s top restaurants.
Linger on the deck on a warm Caribbean evening with a heavenly tropical dessert or one of the flaming coffees that are a house specialty or step next door and join the party at Pancho & Willy’s Bar, a popular spot for music and karaoke during the week.
