Capucchino: Locals place with good cheap food
This place was full of locals when I passed by. The food was good, cheap and plentiful, and the restaurant and bathrooms were very clean. Waiters smiling and helpful.
I got Package 3 which had chicken schnitzel, chips rice and salad, a drink and a dessert for 75 pesos.
Despite the name it's not a cafe, nor does it serve coffee
Favorite Dish: Chicken schnitzel - chicken milanese - a large serving with good flavour

XNak: Great Sandwiches Cheap
Ok so i said before on other post i am a Campeche native and i like to eat seeing as i am a Hospitality events and tourism major with a concentration in restaurant and event management, i can tell you places to eat that arent necesarily in you tourist book, local snak shops and other stuff.
Today i will talk about Xnak, next to Super Campeche which is in front of the Church La Virgen de Guadalupe.Xnak is a small snack shop, has cheap prices and very very good food, it offers sandwiches or as we call them Tortas, they have several choices to make, they offer quesadillas and other stuff.
A company started by one brother and 2 sisters it has grown but not to a franchise team. They offer really good food and is something everybody likes, their souces are really good and have become a sensation in the small town, they serve a very good sweet tea( as you have noticed mexican tea is a sweetend tea) their best sandwich is in debate between Torta de Claveteado Surtida wich isa sandwich whit a ham that is glazed in a sweet cocacola souce and has chicken ham cheese and veggies, the other one is a Suritda con Choriquezo, it is a Chorizo sandwich with chicken ham cheese and extra slab of cheese and veggies . All this sandwiches are tasted, dont be scared go try them they are the best
Favorite Dish: torta de Claveteado sturtida
Casa Vieja: Ambiance
This restaurant is on the second floor of a building overlooking the main plaza of Campeche. To find it as you walk along the sidewalk, all I remember is a non-descript door leading upstairs. There are a number of artworks around to check out (I suspect they have lots of people waiting on busy days).
The food was fine - compared to the other two restaurants we ate at however, prices were higher, and quantity of food less. But like they say in the real estate business: location, location, location. You are overlooking the plaza, and all the going-ons of the town.
PS, don't you love that guy in the photo. Other than the view, it is the main thing I remember about the restaurant. I'm not sure how good advertising for the restaurant a skeleton voodoo figure is though.
La Parroquia: Open 24 Hours
We tried this restaurant as well for one dinner. We like restaurants that are frequented by locals, and sure enough there were more locals than tourists there.
I ordered red snapper expecting a chunk of a big fish like we buy back in Canada, but instead got a complete small fish - with very sharp teeth.
Marganzo: Campeche cuisine
We enjoyed our meal at Marganzo's. The food was tasty, the service efficient. Marganzo's claim to fame is the fact that their serving personnel are dressed in traditional attire.
Amazingly we were using a six-year old guide book to help us with our Campeche trip, and the description written six years ago fits the bill today. Restaurants in Winnipeg never last that long.
I tried Pan de Cazon which is shark meat in a tortilla, supposedly a very local dish. It was good, but our other selection of one of the fresh fish meals off the menu was even better.
