Great Botanas, and the food just keeps coming in the afternoon if you order some ice cold beers. Live entertainment. Just a great casual place to hang out. Family friendly. Dinner menu is also very good.

In this place you only order 1 beer and get the food without any aditional cost. The "botana" is good and after 3 beers you will have eaten a lot! There are plenty of promotions and life music almost all the day. The best BOTANA bar in Merida

Go for the beer and snacks and stay for the music and videos. if you think their kitchen and bar are doing good, just wait to meet the DJ ona Friday afternoon. I'll bet you a beer that you'll stay for a couple more.

Excellent yucateca botanas and tip top service ... and ICE cold beers! We arrived late at night right before closing time one night on our trip in Mérida. They were almost out of their famous botanas (which are uncharged little yucatecan snacks, we had relleno negro, brasos de res, taquitos de pavo, and some papadzules ... all delicous) but they...

My Mexican friends took me to this place to let me experience the Mexican concept they offer. You just order a beer and then you get three times many different dishes served on your table. In this way you can try many Mexican dishes. As not eating meat, there were not many options. But the waiters were very friendly and... More

Wow! Where do I start? These were the best botanas (free snacks with drinks) we have had anywhere! They are all traditional Mayan or Yucatecan dishes and very plentiful. It is a bit of a hike from the main plaza, but you can certainly get a taxi there for a mere 30 pesos. If you come to Merida, don't miss... More

If you want to try a little of many Yucatan dishes this is the place each drink order brings a new round of botanas to the table and don't be shy and ask for more favorites!! The Eladios in Progreso is my favorite spot ...right on the beach and plenty of parking!!

One would think if a restaurant was not busy, a little extra time would be in order to properly prepare a meal. We have been in the Yucatan 3 months last year, and 3 this year and have eaten in many restaurants and this one one of the poorer meals. Food was overcooked, dry, only semi- warm when it arrived...

Good place to go overboard with beer drinking. You can eat Mexican snacks as many as your stomach can hold, for free, by only buying beer!!! Go there if you´re really willing to drink beer like a Viking and pig out like never in your life. Hold back. LOUD MUSIC!!!!!
