This is the spot for viewing El Centro. On the second floor and a patio seat is a must. The only downside is there is I felt a little like they were understaffed...or the gringos got a slightly less superior service than at other restaurants. And the margaritas were small. However, the view is worth the price of admission.

This is the sort of place you go to take in the view . There was nothing specifically wrong with our meal - it was just very ordinary and overpriced for what it was. The tendancy in lots of places geared for tourists is to add a 10% "tip" to the bill, a bit much when you're not very happy with the service. Go for a pre dinner drink and don't feel guilty about leaving without ordering food. They should try harder to get their standards raised to compare favourably with the prices they practise.

Great view on the zocalo & the evening passers by. The best place to sip a margarita in Campeche.

after 3 weeks of mexico, this was the one and only bad dinner we had.

butter was over and smelled. the toasted bread tasted old. the rice was old, warmed up and burned black. mole had a thick dried layer, t-bone was tasteless and "well done" instead of medium.

we feld like eating old warmed up food and had realy no good feeling.

nevertheless location and view is good. if you study the bill, you find out, that the tip for the service is already added automatcally to the bill (10%)....

Casa viaja de los arcos is situated on the zocola of campeche and has a great location. The view is really sensational when you sit at the balcony and watch the sun set on the carthedral. But that is were the positive things end. The food was really a disapointment, i was surprised they even dared to serve this! We had fajitas wich was nothing more than a tortilla with pieces of chicken and one little tiny piece of vegetable, wich i really had to search for, which was also luke warm.It was really dissapointing. We went as soon as we could, and not satisfied. I think they should seriously pay more attention to the food than have two people walk around the zocola and try to get as much people inside as possible. Great view but terrible food.
