The service ok, the psition ok, the table dress super...the food... average for an european. I was expecting more sophisticated preparation and good products. At the end it's expensive for what you get.

Captain's Cove has a delicious buffet on Sundays. You can go with your family, couple or friends. The food is really good and you can seat while watching the view of the lagoon. I really recommend it!

We own at the Royal Islander and we go to Captain's Cove every year. The food and service are very good. I think they should update their menu. It's been the same menu for many years.

Restaurant owned by Royal Resorts Group , which specializes is the fresh fish and seafood in addition to a wide variety of choices for all tastes.
