The Best Show in Town

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... read more

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.

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.

Pros: -Friendly staff. I wanted a certain type of drink they didn't have in the menu still they made it for me. -Food was ok. -Amazing views!! Cons: -We couldn't find the entrance easily. -It is a bit pricey but I guess it is because of the views.

Visited last night for drinks. Waiter twice tried to overcharge us. When we asked for the bill, he told us that the cost was M$190, but according to the menu it should have been M$170. We queried this and he confirmed that the difference was not because of adding on taxes or service, and he seemed to concede there was... More

Good place for a beer and guacamole as the sun goes down overlooking the square and cathedral. Interesting Mexican art inside. Staff were friendly enough. Enter via the stairs to the left of the small McDonald's.

And the food isn't bad either. It can be a little inconsistent but good more often than not. This was probably our 7th visit and we have had only one bad meal where both our seafood dishes came out overdone. So this time, we stuck to meat. We had the chips and guacamole to start - excellent. I had the... More

This is really a very nice terrace, with a great view of the Parque de la Indepencia. When we were there, an orchestra was playing in front of the Cathedral, which made this place a great spot. The entrance on the street level is easy to walk by and the stairs to the restaurant aren't that inviting. But the waiters... More
