The venue of this restaurant is excellent being upstairs with views across to the Cathedral. The food was ok but you could only say our waiter was disinterested. Other waiters seemed ok. What really was irritating was that they added 10% Cubierto which is just a Cover Charge for nothing. Will not return

I've eaten here before a few years back and had a good experience. The coconut shrimp was solid. I came back recently with a friend, though, and it was impossible to get served. There were three young waiters all talking and laughing together inside but even when we asked them for help they continued to ignore us. We ended up... More

The service at Casa Vieja del Rio is professional but not very friendly. I ordered the Rib Eye steak and the steak was descent but uneventful, although a bit tough. The wine was okay. I recommend this place for the view of the plaza and drinks only. Much better food can be ordered elsewhere.

We were here at the end of December to celebrate our last night in Campeche and we decided to have dinner at this place because of the location. We regret this decision heavily! This is one of the worst places I have ever been, the service is incredibly bad, the waiters are unmotivated and unfriendly. The margaritas and the dishes... More

This is a little hidden restaurant, right in the center of the town which gives breathtaking views of the cathedral and central place particularly in the evenings when it gets dark. It has a lovely terrace which feels quite intimate. Absolutely go there for a drink or to eat if you're travelling to Campeche.

We went here because of the nice view of the square and cathedral, but the food was simply terrible. Everything tasted only of lemon, the spaghetti came cold and bathed in cheese and lemon. Even the Guacamole tasted terrible! Don't go there for food!!!

Definitely worth a visit. Great historic decoration. Amazing views over the central plaza and cathedral in the historic centre. Reasonably priced and good menu. The Chaya Maya leaves are a delicious starter coated with honey, peanuts and goats cheese.

First of all our impression was good about the people and the surroundings. But fast it became a bad felling about the food and the service (yet what you are came and got for !). More than half an hour for a small plate of a tasteless guacamole order as a starter before our main courses. Meanwhile a table beside... More
