Six of us had lunch there and all were happy with their meal. I had empanadas filled with crab followed by spaghetti with a wide variety of mariscos and was very satisfied. Even though the location of the restaurant is close to the main square, there were no other tourists or expats in the restaurant... all locals. Friendly service with... More

The ladies dressed in typical dresses of the culture 100 years ago. There was outside for heat and inside for Air Conditioning. The music was soft, and the food was elegant. It was very costly, but you get what you pay for.

Great place in the historic center of Campeche for true regional food. Delicious preparation and taste compared to other locations near by. Actually ate here twice because it was so good. Would come back here in a heart beat.

I was traveling with a group of 7 and we ate here twice during our stay in Campeche. The food is excellent I had fish in a white sauce with shrimp and crab, very good. I tried the coconut pie, which was also very good, for dessert. The meals come with little plates of appetizers and everyone has a free... More

This is a great placeto try seafood as well as local cuisine. The service is perfect and the dishes are big an really tasty. First try the "horchata de coco" water, a little bit sweet but delicious. Then start with any ceviche, fresh and really good. Then try one of the local specialties: cochinita pibil (pork), pan de cazón (fish... More

We asked a local where to have pulpo (octopus) and were recommend this place. It´s in the Lonely Planet as well. And it was indeed very good and friendly service. Bread, tacos and salsa comes free as a starter.

Marganzo is quite a large restaurant on Calle 8, between calles 57 and 59 in the Historical Center of Campeche. All the waitresses (there are not waiters!) wear traditional huipiles, giving the restaurant a very local touch. The menu features local Campeche specialties. I ordered the shrimp-stuffed fish filet and it was delicious, though the helping so generous I had... More

Ate hear based on recommendation from various sources. Spicy shrimp soup was good but shrimp were overcooked. I had the steak and my friend had the fish special stuffed with shrimp and bacon. Steak was bland and fish was average with the shrimp overcooked. Overall I'd say it was very overpriced. Service was good and restaurant was clean.
