Lovely View Average Food

The view was lovely. The food so so. The french fries were cold. I mentioned this to the waiter and he took them away but never brought any fresh fries back.

Three of us were visiting Campeche for work. We asked our foodie host where to go for good seafood and he blurted out "Tio Fito" without hesitation and took us straight there. Right on the water, under a palapa, the setting is casual and the seafood is fresh as can be. We loved it so much that when we returned... More

This place is an oceanfront palapa outside of the walled city where the locals goto get their seafood (in front of the holday inn). This is a seafood place that uses very fresh ingredients to make simple seafood plates. The ceviche is really good, but the octopus in squid sauce was the highlight my lunch.

Had an early dinner and watched the sunset at this restaurant on the water. The restaurant only stays open for dinner until 7pm. We enjoyed a margarita, coconut shrimp & a fresh grilled fish dish. Service was attentive, the food was a good & we enjoyed the view. Very reasonably priced.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Campeche. The crab legs, the the typical dishesI tasted (pan de cazón and chile xcatic) are one of the fines meals I've had in the Yucatán Peninsula. The service was courteous and fast.

Can't beat the view of this place. At the end of the promenade, together with a beer or margarita and add somr shrimp and fish tacos and you are good to a great start. They provide a little more than chip n salsa, so give it a try.

I was in the mood for a steak. I stopped by the restaurant during the afternoon to check out the menu and prices. I met Fernando, who was very congenial and took time to show me the fresh seafood coming in off the boats, the actual steak I was interested in, and some lobster tails that looked delicious. As I...

The best part of our dinner was the walk along the ocean boardwalk from the Parque central to get there. The restaurant was about to close - it was 7, but on Sunday. So high marks for serving us. The view is one of the best in Campeche for dining out. Both entries consisted of a few pieces of lettuce,... More
