Delicious food, nice atmosphere, good location. Clean bathrooms. Nice break from Yucatán food. Mostly tourists there, pricier than other places

If you want to meet local expatriate community this is a place for you. Great location, good food, decent service a bit pricey for Merida, not a bad choice overall.

The owners have done an outstanding job with the decor at Hennessy's. It is such an attractive, almost opulent pub. Our host who winters in Merida was craving a burger & insisted we eat there on the last evening of our vacation in Merida. I had the fish and chips (& cold beers of course) The meals were outstanding and... More

It had been a while so I decided to give it another try. Unfortunately nothing has changed much. Still only so-so at high prices. Still seems to owe much of its success to the local expat crowd. Not only was the food mediocre at best but the service was slow and uninspired. It will be a long time before I... More

I've been here twice. Fantastic location, inside area w/ Air Con and patio area too. Fish n Chips are my fave. Staff friendly. This place always has something happening; whether it's Halloween, Live music, fundraising for a charity, St.Patrick's day, etc..... there's always fun. Their bar is beautiful and drink assortment probably the best in Merida. When in doubt where... More

I usually don't go to Irish Pubs outside of the U.S., Ireland or the UK as the food is always horrible. Today I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh caught cod Fish n chips (nice thick cut seasoned French fries). The portion size was more than I would usually eat for lunch and at an inexpensive price of $165 pesos... More

Apart from the potato wedges they serve with so many dishes - the food is at a very high standard. The staff are very nice, the bar itself is beautiful, some very nice wines, lovely building and atmosphere. I go to Hennessy's very often and they are consistently good.

30 minutes for soup, another 20 for a shrimp burger and it was mushy when it arrived. Minus one more for no draught Guinness (in an Irish Pub !)
