We were looking forward to eating here all week. We made reservations for their prime rib buffet and was told it came with one glass of wine per person. The prime rib was so fatty, the mashed potatoes were so lumpy and the salad was so depressing we just wanted to leave. We were hoping to fill up on their... More

This restaurant is located in the Casa Magna Marriott hotel and is an excellent place for fine dining, especially steaks. We ate there three times during our visit to Cancun and thoroughly enjoyed their Beef Tenderloin dinner and their Prime Rib buffet on Saturday night. The service is very good and they have dancers entertaining each time we were there.

Had dinner there tonight. Top notch service, Emanuel was excellent and went out of his way to provide a desert that they didn't even had on menu. Chef Albert's linguine with seafood was spot on. Will be eating there tomorrow as well. Quality of food and service is world class.

The selection choices are the largest I've seen outside of Las Vegas. Oriental items, Mexican items, American choices and fresh tasty fruit and pastries. If looking for superior service ask for Enrique(with glasses) as there are a number of Enriques. Also Samuel.

Very relaxing atmosphere. The service was great and the food was outstanding. My husband and children enjoyed their meals too! My steak was cooked to perfection.

No morcillas and no chorizos Argentinos and no asados. Basically, this is a nice restaurant that happens to serve some steaks but is definitely NOT Aregentine. I have been to Buenos Aires and know what Argentine food is like. This place should rename the place to not mislead people. But service is excellent.

I just returned from eating dinner here and wanted to echo what so many others have said. First, the breakfast buffet is truly amazing. I am not a breakfast eater, but the display and selection are not to be missed. Beautifully done. My dinner was equally wonderful with the addition of terrific service. I had the salad bar with some... More

One of the best restaurants I've been to. The food is just amazing, but also the atmosphere and the service. They kept brings us one sample complimentary authentic Mexican dish after another, that we were basically full before ordering food. My boyfriend ordered the rack of lamb and I ordered the mushroom noodle plate. Both were amazing, just sat perfect.... More

Wonderful meal with an outstanding waiter named Samuel. The service he provide was excellent and so was the food. Then we were treated to a Latin Tango show! We will definitely return to La Capilla. 👍🏻🍷
