Restaurant was the most horrible place: dreary, empty, horrible atmosphere with waiters litteraly waiting for clients and food was definitely disappointing and not at all up to what is described in comments. In addition, restaurant is out of historic center, which wouldnt be a problem if it were worth it, but it truely wasnt the case. I higly direcommend this... More

We had been to this restaurant for my husband's birthday several years ago and it was outstanding. We returned with high expectations that were not met. I think the fish was frozen. Perhaps they changed chefs or owners. The food was mediocre at best. We will not be returning.

Booked a table here as it was rated #2 restaurant in Campeche on TripAdvisor. Normally I find TripAdvisor ratings very reliable. I could not have been more wrong this time. Walked into a restaurant with no atmosphere at all. I should have realised when I found it to not be in a popular part of town, but often the out... More

Within the city wall and easily reached on foot, very good service, excellent seafood! Only complaint: only one white and one red house wine available by glass, otherwise available only by bottle.

Well spaced tables, midweek so quiet, We enjoyed the food but you must keep in mind that everyone has differing tastes. My tastes are more exotic and experimental than my wife's but we were both pleased with the meal. We did not think it overpriced although the clientele was high end. Keep in mind Campeche is not highly renowned for... More

After looking for dining restaurants in Campeche I decided to try La Pigua. The place is nice, well decorated and comfortable. However the food is not good at all. I tried the fish fillet stuffed with seafood, I got the impression the food was not fresh; I mean it seemed chilled, the taste was not fresh at all, the rice... More

After being in Campeche for several days, my group of eight decided on La Pigua as our final group meal. The meals throughout our trip had all been wonderful, and I was a bit nervous that nothing served would actually grab my attention. I was proven wrong from the very beginning. I had become accustomed to the laid-back, Campechano way... More

Beautiful room, adequate service, forgettable food At lunch the restaurant was filled with business owners and expensive looking ladies who lunch. We tried several dishes, the best of which was the aquachilies, however, I've certainly had better aquachilies in different places in Mexico. If you require high end dining atmosphere, eat here, but there is a lot better food available... More

We actually had lunch and dinner here on the same day! One hot morning we walked from the historic district to Fuerte de San Miguel, and we were thirsty and starving when we returned. There was La Pigua! So we went in for a lunch of sopa de mariscos and beer. That was just what we needed, and the place... More

The decor is very elegant. The price reasonable, service is very attentive. We had octopus and fish, both dishes presented very well and tasted good. I would definitely return.
