This pretty restaurant has a very maritime feel with its painted murals and blue tablecloths. I really needed a guide to navigate the very extensive seafood menu. As a starter I ordered the coconut shrimp which was beautifully presented in a coconut shell and tasty sauce. I ordered a chef's special for my entree with a garlic and butter sauce.... More

Down a large street, in the middle of a somewhat decrepit neighborhood lies La Pigua, standing out from its surroundings. There appears to be valet service for those who arrive by car, but we walked from the Hyatt Regency, only about 10 minutes away. We were a bit early (7:30 pm), and the place was surprisingly empty. We were given... More

Merida has a great gastronomic experience, but all around pork. La Pigua demonstrate that Merida also has a lot to offer in seafood. (Shame that the service could be a lot better).

La Pigua has fish down. I and my three companions shared bites of our entrees, each distinctively different and perfectly executed. Service is professional, rooms quiet for conversation.This restaurant is an oasis.

I really liked this restaurant. I had the blue crab appetizer and the blur crab stuffed fish filets. Very well prepared, cooked perfectly. Service was excellent and the wait staff very helpful, even if you don't speak much Spanish. Very large menu with various styles of cooking. The place for an upscale meal. Gets crowded later, after nine.

Went to La Pigua last week and order Pulpo a las Brasas (grilled octopus) and it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! This was the best octopus dish I've ever had! The restaurant was nice, located near Paseo Montejo in a very beautiful area of Merida. If I ever come back to Merida I will definitely go and eat at La Pigua again. Highly... More

The menu was very nice is the best I can day about La Pigua. The food not so much. I had oysters that were warm and filled with water. The fish was definitely not fresh and I used the same fork and knife through out the service. My friends had an equally unsatisfying experience. Definitely off list.

Amazing food...we went here twice on our 5 days stay in Merida. Excellant menu and very good service. I havnt tried too many seafood places in Merida but I am sure this is one of the best places there is. The staff were very friendly but they do press a bit on tips and didnt want to return changes.
