Los Almendros in Mexico City (either insurgentes or polanco ) are good, this place in Merida (hq) should be better, food it is not, neither service; so they need to improve.Since I am mexican I had no issue with the service as soon as I ask the captain for his help, but if you just wait you may not be...

Very traditional restaurant with old fashioned service. The food was not outstanding. Drinks were skimpy. I would not recommend this restaurant for traditional food. There are others that are better.

This charming restaurant, with its attentive meseros (waiters), serves excellent Yucatecan dishes. We had the Poc-chuc de pollo and Poc-chuc de cerdo, a specialty of the house. Both were excellent and filling, but the restaurant serves so many great Yucatecan dishes – especially the Mucbil pollo – that we’ll have to come back. We visited on a holiday-day, so the... More

Perhaps Los Almendros is not modern or on a main street, but this place is traditional Yucatecan fare. The service is impecable and the food is amazing. We had queso relleno, poc chuc and salbutes. For pudding, the flan is a must. It seems to me this place is where Merida families have enjoyed birthdays, weddings, baptisms and all sorts... More

A short distance removed from busy Calle 60 and adjacent "centro" locations, this Los Almendros (not to be confused with others, similarly named) is a delightful location to sample Yucatecan gastronomy. The menu lists the usual suspects (salbutes, cochinita pibil, puc-chuc, queso relleno, etc.) but the preparation and presentation are a cut above other "typical" restaurants in Merida. Our favorite... More

Extensive authentic Yucatan menu. I had the house special, Poc Chuc, which was a delicious marinated thin cut of pork grilled and served with pickled onions, hot pepper salsa and some of the best tortillas I have ever tasted. The accompanying beans were good, they are almost like a bean soup. Price was excellent, about $60 US including tip for... More

This restaurant serves the best cochinita pibil i have tried in Merida. We had a very agreeable meal here, all the food we had was excellent, it was a little bit long but it was because it was all freshly prepared. I highly recomend it if you want to try good mexican food.
