If budget is not an issue for you, dont waste your time and go to this restaurant... This was our favorite restaurant for the whole trip and believe me that is a statement! We ordered the camarones aguachile, camarones al coco, pan de cazon and the dessert was pastel de coco... Everything we had was delicious... Just be carefull with... More

We'd heard a lot from this place, and without a doubt all the rumors are true... It is great!! Amazing service, and delicious meals here. Highly recommended!

Campeche doesn't have much choice for eating out. We ordered the fish and the ceviche. Everything was good, but the fish tasted a little blent, some salt and spices on it would have been great, especially since the fish was so fresh!! No doubt the best fine dinning option in the area, service very kind and professional.

A classic of Campeche, their ceviches and aguachile was outstanding, also the crab 'manitas'. The desert was not so good. The service was wonderful until the place started to fill up, then it became very slow. I'd recommend to make a reservation. It is a nice place with a good air conditioning. I'd sure recommend.

We had a lovely dinner. One can notice it's popular with tourists but staff does its best to make you feel comfortable and serve you good food and drinks. I had the lobster and my husband a steak and we were very pleased. We noticed almost everywhere we go, the portions are huge, same here so I could not finish... More

The people in Campeche told me this is one of the best restaurants in town, the place is good, the prices are high, the food ain't that good, noting exceptional. You probably have better luck eating elsewhere.

Let the wonderful regional food and service of La Pigua pamper your taste and senses. There is a wide variety of "salsas" created by Chef Canul to prepare his original regional dishes, and they are tasty, adequate and not hot or barely hot. You will have the chance to wander through exotic tastes from garlic to paprika, to champignons or... More

We were a group of 12 people who went in for lunch. The service was lackluster and the food was very mediocre. We ate in a number of restaurants during our weekend in Campeche and had hoped this would be the highlight. The only dish that got a wow factor was Pulpo al ajillo that two of our friends at,...
