We are such boring people. Come to Merida every winter and come to perigrino every month. We are always happy with food and service. They have made some minor tweets to the menu accompaniments that are an improvement. Overall a great local food spot.

I'll make it easy for you: 1. Wide variety of menu items 2. Ambience we loved, sitting in the little courtyard in back 3. Our dishes were delicious: wife had "assorted seafood with garlic, wine and sauce," AKA Zarzuela de mariscos, and I had "fried chicken tacos with Mexican mole sauce" (the black sauce), AKA Enchiladas de Mole. The seafood... More

Honestly, this place was very disappointing...something needs to be done...I mean seriously, just change chef. Everything was too salty, too dry or too oily. The fish was a bit of a disaster. Entrees were somewhat better, but I would not return for that. Good flan. It's a pity, cause the place is neat and the location is good.

Based on trip adviser reviews we had an evening meal here and found it quite acceptable. No complaints; food ok and staff attentive. Easy to find just a short walk from the main square.

the setting is quaint yet lovely, garden dinning and dining room with ac. I had breakfast here on my last day in Merida. Food is delicious, and service is excellent. I was intrigued by the name of the restaurant as anyone who has walked The Camino from France to Santigo De Compostela starts under the Pilgrims Portico. It brought beautiful... More

We came back after a several years, my last review was 2014. The quiet atmosphere is welcome and conversation is quite easy consequently. We were early due to tikets for the Symphony, it is located only a half block on Calle 57 from the Teatro Peon Conteras. We enjoyed a nice ensalata verde, crisp iceburg, tomato, bell pepper, shredded carrots... More

I'd eaten here years ago so returned in June-July. Food was good, although I have had tastier food in other places, but what was on my plate was way way too much for me, so I wound up wishing I hadn't eaten there! I probably wouldn't go back but others should try it. Atmosphere is nice and staff gracious.

Pork chops, bacon wrapped chicken livers (very good) and shrimp w/roasted garlic (cooked perfectly). Not extravagant, but good service, good food, and good prices. Very limited by the glass wine selection, but you can get a bottle and take what's left with you. Inside or outside seating, just off Santa Lucia plaza.

We had a lovely time on the patio, which we had to ourselves on a Friday night. It was full of tropical plants, was spotlessly clean, and had a few small tables with white tablecloths. Our food was amazing, the drinks were good. I loved the pollo mole and even had a dream about it that night. The server was... More

I have to say I was a little disappointed with this place after reading so many glowing reviews. Yes the courtyard is nice but there’s something dingy about it too. I started with sopa de lima, which came with chunks of lime pith and rind in it, and then for a main I had the pollo pibil, a half chicken... More
