This might be the most expensive restaurant in Canpeche, but it’s worth every peso. The ambiance is perfect; the service is friendly and highly professional. The food is seriously good, at a quality level equal to the best restaurants in Oaxaca. This is the gem...More

Modern, quiet restaurant. Wonderful seafood dishes. Pricier than most places in Campeche but we loved the quality of the food and service. Great for a special night.

We were drawn to La Pigua (and Campeche) after watching a Patty Jinich PBS show. While, unlike her, we were not invited to the owner’s home, the visit was exceptional. The hotel front desk was busy trying steering us to Marganzo but it had a...More
