Went here one night with my girlfriend while we were staying at the Royal Sands. The food was great, but the best part of the night was the dessert when you order the specialty coffee. They bring over a little cart and put on a show by igniting an alcohol of your choice and pouring it into coffee while doing... More

I ate here twice in the past two weeks and each time was a great experience. The seafood dishes are outstanding and the wait staff is gracious and attentive. An added bonus is the guitarist who accompanies the meal.

My first time at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Food, wine and service is all top notch. Make sure to order both the salad for two and the dessert as they are made table side and just like entertainment.

We have been visiting Cancun for several years at the Royal Resorts. We usually make it a point to eat one night at the El Conquistador at the Royal Islander. We love this restaurant; the food is a great value for fine dining. We always enjoy the live music provided by Jorge Duran. Tonight the meal exceeded our expectations. Angel... More

Food is sort of a fusion of French and Mayan. We found the appetizers and entrees to be superb - at the level of a fine New York restaurant but at a third of the price. Went back a second time the next night.

We ate here while we were staying at the Royal Caribbean on our last night. We weren't disappointed. Good Casear salad, French onion soup, and fish dishes. They serve Steak Diane prepared table side. We didn't have it, but it looked good. We did have bananas flambe prepared at the table with a lot of flare (no pun intended). Nice... More
