Took a trip to Champeche from Chetumal. Decided to try this restaurant. Watched an amazing sunset, had delicious jumbo shrimp prepared 3 ways. The owners are very hospitable and so very helpful. If u love sea food try this place for the food, ambiance, hospitality.

This was a delightful experience on a sunny day. We sat outside watching the fisherman clean their catch on the adjacent pier. We choose a large a fresh fish to share and it was perfectly cooked. The fish comes with the bones but this was not a problem. The service was charming. A memorable day.

Wow! Best fresh seafood around. Constantly on the lookout for mariscos, we headed to La Palapa del Tito Fito on the advice of a cab driver in Campeche. Always a good source of info! The place was full at 300 pm, which is a great sign. Upon arriving, they bring out a nice selection of "bocas" or appetizers to start:... More

After the bus from Palenque we craved a real seafood meal. The place was packed but they opened up a seaside section just for us. The waiter gave us recommendations-seafood. They provided gratis chips, salsa, beer salad, cucumbers, garnachas. The wine pour was generous and my goblet of michalada included the usual ingredients, plus a 2nd beer neck down in... More

We walked all the way from the historic district along the Malecon to Fuerte (Fort) de San Miguel and back. (Would probably suggest a taxi ride.) On the way back we stopped at this restaurant for a late (by our standards) lunch. It was uncrowded, so we got the full court press treatment from the wait staff. Several snacks were... More

Our group of 8 stopped by La Palapa del Ti Fito for Sunday lunch. Although I had read some really good reviews, I was a bit nervous to see the place nearly empty.... Uh Oh... what had we walked into??? Our van driver pulled away to park, so we decided to trust the reviews, sit down and see what happens.... More

This place has a great variety of local food, also a great view of the ocean. Located at the Malecon, you can even take a walk after a good meal

A nicely set beach restaurant were we found good food, especially Pan de Cazon, the most traditional dish of Campeche. The service is a little slow in American or big city standards; but not in a relaxed small coastal city as Campeche. When in Campeche go for regional food, you will get the best; but don´t expect the best French... More
