This was overall a great restaurant. The location and view from the balcony was the obvious attraction and in this regard it didn't disappoint. From the second floor balcony you overlook the beautiful main square and cathedral of the old town. In addition, the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. The camarones coco were enormous and delicious, while the... More

This place really is all about the location. Sitting on the historic first floor balcony in the evening overlooking the illuminated old square below is pretty special. The food was reasonably priced and pleasant enough without being anything startling, although the cheesecake was to die for. The mojitos were great.

wandering up the narrow lit stairway off the Zocalo arcades (just along from the Italian Coffee Company cafe) you come into the most amazingly decorated restaurant. The walls and spaces are adorned with all sorts of interesting antiques and artefacts .... very similar to restaurants i have visited in Havana, Cuba. The interior dinning rooms are so interesting, delightful and... More

We did not have any food here. However, the dishes that past us looked very good and tasty. We prefered just drinks with a cigar overlooking the lively Plaza. Everything was clean. Service very friendly. Menu lookes good with normal prices. Toilet was clean.

We didn't notice the narrow entry stairway at first. Once up, we walked through the bar area to a balcony with stunning views of the town square and cathederal. Better than average daiquiris started the meal, followed by fresh, well cooked seafood. The waiter was friendly and efficient, with enough English and good will. After eating at other restaurants in... More

Enjoyed an evening dinner outside on the terrace overlooking the park during Easter week. The setting was incredible - best in Campeche! Service was adequate and the food was good... but served warm, not hot. This seemed to be a theme at many of the better Campeche restaurants. Still, for under $10 per plate, we loved it. They even gave... More

We had a very nice meal out on the balcony. The food and service was good. The only negative is that smoking is allowed on the balcony and we were downwind of a chain smoker.

We have eaten here several times on trips to Merida. The view of the cathedral in the evening when illuminated is fabulous. Mixed reviews on the restaurant as the food is not consistent but the view makes it worth it

We dropped in just to have a cup of coffee and we were absolutely delighted by the place. It has a very nice terrace which overviews the main city square. It certainly is worth a visit also to taste the good Metzcal.Thank you to the nice waitress Yamari.
