Went by this restaurant one night because I was put off by the pictures on the restaurant's sign. Inside, the restaurant bordered on an elegance unexpected. It looked recently updated with lovely stone wainscoting and chair rails around the perimeter inside, recessed ceiling, new air conditioning, nice bar. There were white table cloths, and the service and food was excellent.... More

We wanted to come out for something light for dinner so we ordered an empanada de queso and a longaniza from the starters. They were way too rich, had no subtlety and nothing nice about them, it was like eating real junk food. Do not come here! I wonder if the chef doesn't take the nights off and they just... More

This restaurant was at the upper end of a moderate priced meal in Merida. It was a pleasant, air conditioned, and quiet, relaxed, quality setting to eat in. It is in the Fiesta Americana area, so can be walked to from there. We had the Combo de Maya, Tzio de Maya, and two drinks each of Chaya drink and Horchata.... More

Even though the food is good (not the best typical food I've ever tried), the waitress got confused with the food order and I got the Queso de Bola Relleno instead of Lechon. Prices are quite reasonable. The place is great to met for business cause is not to crowded.

I haven't been to Merida for several years and I had a desire for queso relleno. My coworker from Merida took me to Katun. The best queso relleno ever. Truly a great dining experience and I have a bit of experience with Mexican food after 32 years of traveling in Mexico for work as well as living here as long.... More

This restaurant is just next to the Fiesta Americana hotel. It's a quiet casual spot with fresh Yucutan offerings at an affordable price. It's not quite in the tourist belt and I kinda felt bad that it wasn't more busy. We enjoyed the food so much we ate there twice.

A pleasant restaurant frequented by locals serving authentic Yucatan dishes. Generous servings. Creviche was fresh. Sangria very tasty. Service was friendly and efficient with the waiter speaking in English and in Spanish. Menus in both languages. A place to revisit!

If you're staying in one of the hotels clustered at Av. Colon and Paseo Montejo, then this is a good choice for a local alternative to the hotel restaurants. There is a good menu of Mexican dishes and we enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
