I ordered the chicken cordon bleu, (I had been in Mexico for almost 2 weeks, I wanted something different). The waiter was excellent and offered insight into dishes we had questions about. The place is air conditioned and had a nice atmosphere. The menu was extensive and the food was perfectly prepared and plated like a gourmet restaurant. Best part... More

It was great service, good food, and reasonable prices. This is a basic restaurant with good traditional food. The portion were filling and food tasted pretty good. We got there early to beat the evening rush. I think this made a difference with the service in particular. The restaurant is located next to the town square and was a great... More

The first food we saw was at 10 pm and it was ritz crackers and cheese. We ordered a beer and a rum and tonic and despite trying to reorder we could... More

We decided to end up our visit to Campeche by visiting a traditional restaurant and it was really good. Authentic meal options from this part of Mexico and delicious coffee. We had a big breakfast before hitting the road again.

For usn this is totally unacceptable. There were 2 big tables in the restaurant, and they were served during all that time, but for us, nothing.... More

My husband had the "filet mignon" and while it didn't seem like the filet mignon we're used to at home, it was delicious! I had the cochonita pibil, (a tradicional Yucatecan dish), and it was okay. Not the best I've had, but fine. The restaurant is located in a historical building right on the main square with lovely views at... More

The service was friendly and the menu has a variety of traditional food from the area and more familiar items. We tried the pineapple and chaya juice, tortilla soup, sopa de lima, and cochinita pibil which were tasty. However, the tastiest thing we ate was the garlic cream (butter? mayonnaise?) that accompanied the bread and chips they gave us while... More

The castle overlooking the bay on the hill top. Expensive to actually go inside (we didn't) but nice to walk around outside. Looked fairly rundown from what we could see of the inside.
