The waiters are having a party getting sombreros for all and making jokes, they are very funny. But be ware that you are paying for the tequila shots they serve after dinner. The food was average, the steaks were dry and the margaritas could have been done better by my self. They charge 15% in tip which is automatically put... More

We went here for some drinks a after dinner and were disappointed. There wasn't much atmosphere, my drink order as wrong and it didn't seem worth the money. Look around.

Good drinks, pretty average service, fun live music and dancing. Overpriced unless you only drink beer and scarf the free snacks. We went on a Saturday night and it got really crowded by 11 or so. I don't highly recommend it but if you're in the neighborhood and looking for some thrills, check it out.

Excellent location as it is fun to watch the street activity during the week end evening when their terrace is open. Good food, good margarittas, very friendly service. A regular stop for us, few times a week when we are in Merida

I lost my camera canon 7d in this restaurant. After 4 days i called and the are return it to me! So, big respect for this kindly place. Except, the kitchen is a very good, and a Maya Lime Soup is bomb! Highly recommended.

What a location - the prime tourist trap and the right image. Perhaps hard to keep from getting snooty and cynical - but so unlike Merida. I was charged 88 pesos for a "yard" mojito. It certainly wasn't a yard (they do have yard-long glasses under the bar) it was a typical large margarita-style glass. But $7 for a cocktail... More

I arrived in Mérida in mid-afternoon, so I went there for a late lunch. It was recommended by the guy at the front desk of my hostel, so I decided to give it a shot. Well, 79 pesos for an order of 3 tacos al pastor and a glass of agua fresca is a bit steep. The food was all... More

This restaurant is well located near to the Grand Plaza in the centre of Merida. The night we were there we were able to sit outside to eat and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the city. The service was friendly. However, the meat in our Parradilla Mexicana was very overcooked, which detracted from enjoyment of the meal.

right downtown and right on 60 and just a block from the zocolo, a never miss when in merida. Food not as good as it's main sister, Paranda, but great place to people watch... Evenings tables out on closed street.

Right in the center of Merida is this little gem. Super friendly waiters, live music and great atmosphere. The food was very good and very reasonably priced, just perfect for grabbing a quick bite while enjoying the charms of Merida Centro. I had lunch here both of my days in Merida, it was that good. Try the panuchos, and one... More
