A commitment to quality at Cancun’s best seafood restaurant

At Captain’s Cove, a commitment to excellence has been our hallmark for 30 years. Our seafood is locally sourced and we proudly serve the catch of the day brought in by the fishermen of the Mexican Caribbean. We wait for the boats to come and collect it straight from the dock to guarantee maximum freshness and flavor. For seafood from the Pacific coast and further afield, we work with prestigious suppliers to bring you the best of the ocean’s bounty.

TripAdvisor Cancun restaurant

We use the same high standards for everything we serve, from grass-fed prime beef, pork and chicken to the freshest vegetables and fruit.
Our chefs weave their magic using traditional Mexican seafood recipes for inspiration, international classics and contemporary creations with a touch of the Caribbean or Italy. Everything is superbly flavored and presented with consummate flair.
And when you choose a drink to accompany your Caribbean lobster tail, grilled shrimp or prime steak, we have the perfect pairing. How about a passion fruit mojito or apple martini, an ice-cold beer or a bottle of wine from the cava or the wine cellar? A selection of the finest wines from the Americas, Europe, Australia and New Zealand is in stock and our maître d’ will help you choose one that complements your menu choices with distinction.
Excellent food, an enchanting location and good service are the marks of a fine dining experience and in Captain’s Cove you can expect the best. All our staff, from the host that greets you and the waiter who looks after you during the evening to our kitchen staff are trained to the highest, most exacting standards, those of hotel restaurants in The Leading Hotels of the World® collection.
In 2015, Captain’s Cove entered the TripAdvisor Cancun restaurant Hall of Fame, an honor conferred on restaurants that win the prized TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence five years running, based on the positive reviews received from diners.
