I try several house dishes and wouldn't order them again. Not complains about the freshness but the taste and overall dish wasn't anything special. Also didn't like the set up, dark, not comfy chairs

We took a cab to La Pigua as it seemed a little farther out from the zocalo than we wanted to tackle on foot.

Walking distance from the Hyatt, intercontinental. It's a haven for seafood lover. Amazing cold and hot dishes. Had the crepe with seafood, the rice with seafood, mixed seafood salad and the fish with crab meat. All excellent. Great margaritas too- the tamarind was particularly good.

We went here for my wife's birthday and it was really, really good. Service was quick, food portions were ok overall. I tried the shrimp with 3 chiles and it was really tasty. Recommended!

We have eaten here many many times when in the city, and we have always liked it, this time was the exception, the food was not quite as good as we were used to, the octopus was so overcooked and salty it was inedible, I had to send it back, they returned the dish to the table in a very... More

Every time I've eaten here it has been perfect. The grilled Octopus is absolutely amazing. (I forgot to take a photo before digging in, sorry)

While in Campeche la Pigua is a must, in Yucatán it has to compete whit dozens of restaurants same or more qualified. Nevertheless this place has a comparative advantage in respect with its competition: the have the best sea food in Merida. Try de "concha de mariscos", their coconut covered shrimps, and one of their best: octopus or squids Sir... More

We reserved a room for 20 & the servers went above and beyond to communicate with us and help us have a spectacular meal. They made suggestions with both food and beverages. We mostly had fish dishes and they all were great.

The octopus with black rice is a must try! Extremely delicious! My friends and I just can't stop ourselves from re-visiting the restaurant the next day again! And of course, thanks to the suggestion made by the waiter, we were able to try the nice fresh prawns grilled with garlic! Everyone, especially, the lady owner, are very friendly and helpful,...

My daughter and I came here for dinner craving good seafood. It did not disappoint! We both had shrimp dishes and both were amazing! Plus, service was great and atmosphere was friendly. One of the best meals we had in Merida.
