Best pizza I've had in Merida. The open air dining area is nicely decorated, and the service is attentive. The seating area is far enough back from the street that traffic noise is not a problem

Amaro had been recommended to us by a couple of friends as a place to have a nice dinner in a pretty garden. We met friends there on a recent Monday at 6:30 pm. The place was empty (always worrisome to me), but we say down and proceeded to order. First, our margaritas were icky-tasting...tasted like a mix or a... More

Title says it all. Has a wide menu with Mayan, Mexican, and international selections. Food was Elliot prepared and tasty. Margaritas were the real thing.

My wife & I along with friends have been here 3 times and were always IMPRESSED with the quality of food offered at very reasonable prices. The "open air garden" is stunning and the service is cordial and quick. Grab a bite here and you won't be disappointed...Hippie Bob

The menu is limited and the food was not good. Most of us did not like our entrees. Drinks were on the chinzy side. Service was slow. I would not recommend this restaurant.

I ate here twice during my stay in Merida. It's a good place for a nice sit-down meal. I enjoyed my food. It was tasty, good quality and fresh. The service on my first visit wasn't great, as they were slow and forgot to take orders from some of our group. The second visit as much better for service. One... More

Food was ok, I ate citron fish, not special but nothing wrong with it. Service was ok, but not frendliest we've seen in Mexico. Nice thing was that colibris (those tiny birds) were also having lunch on tree in the middle of eating area.

Thank Antti L
