Best sea food in town

If you are looking for sea food reataran, this is the place to go. They have fresh and excellent sea food menu. Don't miss Grilled octopus, ceviche and shrimps with pineapple and champaign sauce.

One of the best seafood places I have ever been to! You have to try the pigua with a reduction of wine, garlic and Parmesan Cheese. The coconut shrimp are also a must! Great service! Oh! And also try the rice with squid ink.

Fresh seafood prepared in a unique way with great quality. The restaurant is located in downtown a block away from the main hotels. The only downside is the modest infrastructure of the restaurant, however the food is so good that I gave it an outstanding rating.

I had not been there in over 15 years and was very pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The octopus was outstanding. My only "but" would be that it is too noisy in the smoking section. ..

La Pigua is the best place to have fresh seafood in Merida, service is OK.. atmosphere is perfect and the food is very fresh.. well priced for the quality of the food and very well located close to the fiesta americana hotel.. I love the Coconut fried shrimp with orange sauce for dipping.. can't go wrong ever with that plate..... More

We ate several times in this restaurant always fish dishes, my favourite was the octopus in black ink really delicious with an excellent white wine, it is cheap but you definitely get what you paid for, or even better.

Second time in one month! Needless to say that I like eating at la Pigua. The restaurant deco is not great but the service is very attentive and professional and the food very good. Not for the tourist trade but very well known and supported by locals.
