Went here for a romantic evening. The courtyard setting is lovely, but the food was both over-priced and surprisingly bland. You'd do better elsewhere in this city of fabulous cooking...

This is the perfect restaurant for those who are both vegetarian and non-vegetarian because the menu is very diverse. I originally chose this because it was recommended as one of the better vegetarian restaurants in Merida.

Lovely outdoor seating at Plaza St. Lucia. Tasty Italian dishes, attentive service, huge wine list. On Sundays during early afternoon, local bands play on the Plaza stage and tons of locals (and s few tourists) dance to the lively music! Fun!

Attentive service from great staff in a pleasant atmosphere with excellent food. The noise from the park can be a little too much but remember the beautifully decorated interior space is both air conditioned and very quiet. And sports fans can catch the game on the bar TV.

Beautiful Restaurant partly outdoors with stunning romantic lights, and pretty romantic decor. Large menu with plenty of choice and lots of vegetarian options. I had a pesto pasta which was delicious. Amazing live music every night, and they handed out sombreros :)
