If you order the Pompano Veracruze--excellent. Shrimp dishes very small---no side dishes included for the price--very lovely setting

I had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant during my visit to Campeche. Colleague of mine is from Campeche. She recommended the restaurant to the group. It was fantastic dining experience. Food was fabulous, particular the coconut prawn. Dessert was great, some amazing fresh juice. Service was outstanding. The toilet has some fresh lavender! It was a great dining... More

Very disappointing experience. That said the service is good and the staff are friendly. However the food is overpriced, bland, and unimaginative. It really failed to impress and food is not good. Much better value to be had elsewhere.

Honestly with a table of 5 adults, we never got past the appetizers! Enormous crab legs, jumbo coconut shrimp, and sauteed garlic shrimp had us all stuffed. We managed room for some of the house-special coconut pie, though! Very elegant restaurant, first-class service, tempting menu. Looking forward to sampling more of the offerings.

I had a quick lunch with my family in this place and the food was super tasty and of a very good quality. The service was very attentive and impeccable. I like the amouse bouche offerer upon arrival; a Mexican style shrimp bisque. We also had a seafood salad for sharing as the portion was very generous and my self... More

This was a birthday celebration and we were not disappointed. we had a superb meal with very professional service; the camarones al coco were outstanding. It proved to be a tiresome walk from the historic centre, with very difficult roads to cross - so take a taxi!

I was dying for shrimp. I saw people eating coconut shrimp at several restaurants, but I do not like to eat fried food. So the last meal of my trip was to La Pigua, and boy oh boy did that make me happy. I ordered Shrimp Marjoram as an appetizer, a green, green salad for a second course, and marinated... More

...for less money. My wife and I each had dinner, shrimp entres, a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and dessert for under $50 US. Service was excellent. We were there at 6:30. Got in w/no wait.

Sorry not to rate the food as it was highly recommended to us, but the prices led us to enjoy a beverage and dine else where
