The food here was ok, but the service was a complete chaos. There were several people waiting on us. Due to their poor coordination we got complimentary starters twice, meaning we were half full by the time food arrived. Drinks took ages to arrive. The food was generally ok, but the meat in the pibian dish was dry and hard... More

This morning I had the pleasure of visiting this great restaurant. I was invited there to have breakfast with the Escalante family. When visiting Merida , I would strongly suggest a visit to this restaurant because not only do they offer great Yucatecan/ Mexican food you will also be surrounded with a touch of the culture. I was amazed to... More

Super! Cerdo ahumado and sopa de lima - excelente. The made to order salsa was amazing. This place is a five minute walk from the museum and totally worth the visit.

One of the last to have an authentic tortilladora in from making authentic good tasting tortilladoras. Selection of beers and some liquor. The extensive menu is Mexicfan on one side and Yucatecan on the other to help ignorant gringos like me to learn more about the foods here. Everything was attractively served. The table salsa was some of the best... More

Unfortunately this little gem of a restaurant is not easily driven by. You have to turn off of Prolongacion de Montejo just before the Siglo XXI convention center and movie theater and drive a little ways down the road. My husband and I had a long day of sightseeing and decided to pull out our City Passport coupon book to... More

This restaurant has excellent Mexican and Yucatan food (my preference), very good service, reasonable prices, and Is extremely clean with a modern look and feel on the inside. Outdoor seating is available under a cabana. You can custom-design your salsa and the beer is very cold. It is easily accessible and there's plenty of free parking across the street. My... More

Well-crafted, true Yucatan dishes served by capable staff who took excellent care of us all evening. Their recommendations for entrees were spot-on, as I wanted to try the local dishes and appreciated some help. They made our family dinner a highlight of our visit to Merida. Finally, the prices were great, even the drinks, surprising for this level of atmosphere,... More
