Wonderfull view, average food

The view is fantastic, especially at night. The food however is average, though the service is good. A drink with a view would be your best option.

What a gem this place is! Difficult to find (look for the door next to the McDonalds ice cream place) but it has such lovely views of the cathedral and across the city square. The waiters were very pleasant, attentive and humorous - and the food was very good. And every outside table has a front row view! I will... More

This pristine restaurant overlooks the Plaza Independencia and if you get a chance to eat out on the balcony you can see the Campeche Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in all its glory! It's quite a splendid sight in the evenings towards dusk. The layout of the restaurant is very appeasing and picturesque, particularly the old-time artefacts. Layout is traditional... More

After watching the film show in the main square, we wandered around looking for somewhere for dinner and we saw people eating on the upper level of the colonnaded square and we asked where the entrance was. You could easily miss it, but it's worth finding. The setting on the outside balcony is superb. You pay a small premium for... More

Great location! Full view on the plaza, the cathedral but most especially on the local life. You have to look out to find the entry (staircase). Cocktails ok.

We didn't have a meal here but enjoyed a few drinks on the veranda in the evening. It's a great spot to people watch over the square. Highly recommended.

Everyone who manages to find his or her way into this restaurant should receive some sort of reward, and ultimately everyone does. We had read about it in the Cadogan Guide, and then looked for it on two sides of the main square, but could not find a sign or entrance. Then we went across the square and could see... More

View is nice. Service okay. Food was lousy an pricey. In the end they added 10% to the bill for service. When we asked he insisted that this is standard here - what is not true. He offered to take the 10% off, but only gave change to the 110%. It's unfair and annoying to treat guests like this.

We enjoyed a meal here. Great views and exceptional service. Food was good. Waiter went way out of his way to help us figure out the road out of town. Very kind!

A view out over the plaza in Campeche is the main reason to stop here. If you go for a drink and then decide to stay for dinner as we did, you probably will have a decent but not very exciting meal.
