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

I had eaten at this restaurant on my first visit to Campache nine years ago and loved it. I had recommended it to friends. I was ready to try it again but was sadly disappointed. The waiters were hustling and hard-selling, the service was slow, the food was just OK. However, a great place for drinks and the view, especially... More

If there was ever a reason to listen to trip advisor, it would be this. We stumbled across this restaurant overlooking the plaza. It looked stunning so we opted to try it out. Disappointment. Service was poor, totally ignored and then food brought to us (we hadn't even ordered). Grumpy waiter. Food was mediocre in comparison to what we had... More

The Casa vieja is actually quite difficult to find....Since it's a second-floor restaurant, you have to find the door to the stairway, which is right next to a little shop selling ice-cream.The restaurant itself has both indoor and outdoor seating. The latter is actually a very long balcony arcade overlooking the zocalo and the cathedral. At night, it's downright impressive!... More

We were going to skip this place based on the reviews but a local cafe owner said it was worth a try. It is upstairs by the main square, accessible via the stairs by mcdonalds. The view was spectacular and our server was good. I liked the shrimp ceviche. We both had the house baked pork for the main. It... More

The main reason to come here is the view, which is incredible. Food is good, not great, and slightly overpriced. But seafood is fresh.
