CASUAL DINING

La Olla restaurant (also known as La Olla de la Pagoda) LUNCH

I absolutely loved this restaurant, the vibe, the hectic feel and all the hundreds of plates coming out of the kitchen in record time! It’s a local favorite and all dishes are VERY well served and under $135 pesos (most being under $100). The concept is that you are eating home cooked Campechen food in all it’s forms. So when the locals don’t feel like cooking, they order from La Olla or go there to eat.

Santo Taquito is a taco place (and some other dishes too) in Campeche that all foodies MUST go. It’s one of those places where you try once and then decide to go back every day because prices are great and the food is outstanding, plus there are so many options you have to go back to try the other flavors on the menu. 

 

They offer tacos, regional snacks, salads, seafood cocktails, ceviches, pan de cazon and fried octopus.
