A very fine and elegant traditional style restaurant, serving the best Campeche-Style food in town. You can see the locals as well as visitors enjoying delicacies of Capeche food. Mainly sea food, made with fresh ingredients from the Gulf of Mexico. worth the visit!

Excellent sea food with a large choice of drinks. Good staff. This can be seen as a fancy place and also more expensive than average but the quality is there.

We ate Crab claws and "Black Seashell" which they describe as snail but I understand to be the mollusc in the Conch shell. Both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The wine list by the glass had no choice. 1 white 1 red. Both ok. No vegetable or salad as a side dish to speak of. Waiter very good.

The food is delicious and original, the waiters infallibly attentive and courteous, and if you have the luck to talk to the owner (and author of most if not all of the recipes), your day is complete! Try the Sir Francis octopus, the coconut shrimps, the green pampano, the ceviche and don't forget the guayaba pie. As for drinks, the... More

Everything is good here!! Stone crab claws, fish patê, Sir Francis calamari, shrimp bisque, pan de cazón (a local classic and treat) and good dessert, tea and coffee selection. Service is impeccable. Totally worth the visit if in Campeche!

The place is outside of the historic downtown. Pleasant deco, but nothing out of this world. The service is good. Their coktails are simply bad (couldn't make a good margarita) Food is ok, but nothing that justifies the price. There's plenty of other better options.

Lovely restaurant, great service. Best ceviche we had in Mexico (and we ate a lot). The octopus and almonds was great too. Worth the short walk from the old town.

Many recommended but upon sharing our story many admitted this place has gone downhill. We went at lunch with a group of 5 and the entire meal was a comedy of errors - from poor service, missing plates, low quality and flavor and more. Everyone remarked how it was a major let down. Skip it and try one of the... More
