This has been arguably the best stop for food during our visit in Yucatan & Campeche. The restaurant is located in a busy street in the modern part of the city. The single room is modern in style and simply decorated. The place is an oasis in the middle of a very crowded and noisy  neighborough. After a series of... More

I find the Pigua a great place to eat everytime I visit; however, I always feel that my overall experience is not as good as the Pigua in Mérida. Especially in the dessert area, this Pigua needs a bit of work

The place tries to be more upscale than it realky is. The food is very good, try the Xcatic peppers filled with fish or the coconut shrimp. It is expensive as you may find the same quality food all over the city for half the price.

Our guide steered us here as the best seafood restaurant in Campeche. Since it is the only restaurant in Campeche where we ate, I cannot say that definitely. I was expecting WONDERFUL WOWZER. So not sure if my expectations were too high but it was just good. We had salads, fish and split a dessert. Service was good, clean restaurant... More

great little restaurant located just outside of the walled center. Great seafood, we had the octopus in its own ink and the seafood salad. Both were great but the Seafood salad was probably the best I've ever had. fresh and tasty. Come here and try it!

My husband and I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our host in Valladolid. The atmosphere here is very peaceful and while the service was spotty, overall, we had an enjoyable and relaxing dinner. The fish in green sauce and coconut shrimp were both very fresh and nicely prepared and plated.

We enjoyed our evening meal in an almost empty restaurant, I presume that most of its diners visit for a late lunch, rather than dinner - it closes relatively early in the evening. Like fish at home - the fish is relatively expensive - but you are in the right city/ area to have fish & much as I love... More

loved my dinner ther but really was not happy to pay 26 pesos for a thimble sized cup of tea -- camarones al coco were amazing, large, fresh and so yummy!

The seafood at this restaurant was outstanding. I had the coconut shrimp that was delicious and my wife had a shrimp dish that was not on the menu--ask the waiter--that had more variety on the plate--vegetables, etc. It can easily be walked to. It is just a few blocks from the northern edge of the main square.
