My wife got me to this place as my birthday present, first detail the hostess gave us a bad reception to the restaurant answering rude to our questions, after her came someone from the bar and also gave us a "obvious" answer ; otherwise our waiter Mario was superb in attitude and service. Second the food is good period, not... More

Having dinner at kuuk made us remember the time we went to El Bulli in Spain without knowing what to expect. Delicious food using local ingredients, incredible mansion, extremely comfortable and perfect staff service made of our dinner something to remember and treasure for a long time. In these days it is really hard to be surprised by a restaurant... More

If you ever get a chance to eat here, go! I had one of the best meals of my life here. It is an amazing culinary journey with sophisticated tastes by a superb chef. The gin and tonic was the best I have ever had. Not to be missed.

Ku'uk was born from one of Yucatán's most Marvelous chef. Eating here is not all, having a dinner at Ku'uk is an experience, not a meal. You'll encounter vanguard cuisine dishes that are none shorter than amazing in all possible ways, from flavor to presentation and of course it's origin and resemblance. If you're in Yucatán, Ku'uk is a must... More

Visiting Merida with my girlfriend, we went to Kuuk after one of my client recommendation. We order appetizer/main course/ dessert and it was simply one of the best meal I ever had (and I went in many good place like 3 stars Michelin restaurant). The only thing is we were not too hungry so we didn't try the tasting menu... More

We booked for lunch for 4 of us and were rather perturbed that we were the only people in the restaurant! It was a Tuesday, but there should have been at least a few diners. There is much good traditional Yucatan food in Merida and we had previously been in a variety of very busy restaurants. It is a delightful... More

There is razor thin sliced avocado covered in charred onion that was among the most delicious things I've ever eaten. Our server had great recommendations and spoke perfect English which was a welcome bonus. We ordered off of the a la carte menu and prices were very reasonable. We arrived at 8:00 and were the only ones in the restaurant,... More

The food was excellent. The dishes were very sophisticated and well prepared. The atmosphere was the let down. We found the high ceiling and Formica tables created a cold environment. We moved to the bar for the last course.

The most memorable dinner in my life. Try the tasting menu with wine pairing, you will not regret it. Prices are for our standards petty low, the menu with the wine pairing $2100... $100 US per person. The staff is incredible and the place lovely. We will recommend kuuk at home. Thanks to all the team.
