I'm wondering whether the Don Muchos that is getting the rave reviews below can possibly be the same one that I ate at .... Admittedly we went for lunch, when neither the pizza nor pasta is available (whoever cooks them arrives at 3 we were told). Hard to imagine though that the Italian part of the menu can be so... More

This place in the middle of the jungle made our staying super fun and tasty. The food was delicious the prices are very much affordable and the whole experience there is great. They have live shows every night and the music is pleasent to the ears. Long story short- go visit this awesome restaurant!

Location, location, location. Enter this outdoor restaurant to the sound of howler monkeys in full roar. We ate there on two nights. The pizza is fantastic. We didn't try anything else. The waiter taught us how to drink tequila. It was packed both times we went and seems to attract a cool crowd. There is live music at 8.00 which... More

The food is good enough, but the ambiance is what captures your interest and it doesn't let go... Dining, drinking and sleeping in middle of the jungle really makes you feel like you're in a bona fide EXOTIC place!

The only place at El Panchan that can boast 0 cases of good poisoning (according to the locals) makes a great spot to wile away a few hours of an evening after trekking round the ruins. Good food, great local live music and reasonably priced means it gets busy so it has a great atmosphere. Although food can be a... More

Looking for good atmosphere and cheap but good food? This is the restaurant for you in Campeche. Backpackers and yuppies mix up naturally with street artists and artisania sellers. Small bands or single musicians alternate playing live, and offering the possibility to dance. You can taste mexican specialties and ... Pizza! Cooked in a real wood owen. Personnel is corteous...

I had the most amazing thin base pizza here. Very flavoursome and packed with topping. I can totally recommend the Palenque vegetarian pizza. They will do separate bills for big tables which is very helpful. The staff were quite slow in returning with change which was the only disappointment.

Don Mucho's has a lot to offer-live music, candle light, a small dance floor and good reasonably priced food. Arrive early or you will have to wait for a seat. However, in our experience they were terribly understaffed and the waiters we encountered were harried and not particularly polite. We had to wait an hour for the food to arrive... More
