Capitán Cook's

Fodor's Review

Lobster, king crab legs, and lots of fish are what's cooking at this seafood house on the sand, but the scene was always the show—boisterous fun as mariachis played, vendors hawked souvenirs, and waiters sprinted to the beach tables delivering sizzling cauldrons of food. The bazaar-like atmosphere on the waterfront—daily from noon to midnight—has quieted, however. It's lost popularity, perhaps because the price escalated, or because their boat no longer picks up

hotel guests, or, as some say, it's gone downhill. The prix-fixe special includes drinks and the signature dish parrillada mixta (mixed grilled seafood) with fries and salad, followed by shots of fiery mamajuana (cheaper if you don't want alcohol.)

Capitán Cook's Review

Overley expensive, not worth the price or the cab ride there. We paid 75$ U.S a person,and after we paid the waiter asked for more money. The food was not up to par. The shrimp was over cooked, the lobster was over cooked, and the service was slow. I dont recommend this place.
