The place now is well lighted and very nice. The food was excellent and the service very good. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. We had mussels (wonderful), escargots (to die for),Carpaccio and pasta (good as if an italian restaurant), fish and meat. For dessert we had the chocolate fondant. One of our best dining... More

Nice place to have a dinner with friends. Wine list have a wide range of prices and qualities and you can also find cocktails and spirits. Food is in middle to good range. I tried the tenderloin and it was a bit dry and insipid. One of my friends asked for the duck -which must be an specialty in a... More

We were taken for dinner to celebrate both an anniversary and birthday and it was an excellent experience. Innovative decor, bright, colorful and cheerful as well as the rare thing, comfortable seating. A warm greeting at the doorwhich felt sincere and continued thrugh-out the meal. French based menu, the chef/owner is from Brittany. Two of us started with the portabello... More

Great food. This is the only place that I am aware in all of Merida, that serves escargot. All of the food we had was high quality, unique tastes, and wonderful service. The atmosphere has been updated. This is the best kept secret in all of Merida.

Bruno´s has changed from from a little bistro to a more formal restaurant and this change is welcome. The interior décor is now really nice. We had a special and two items of the menu, all were very good. The portions for us were just right, not too big so that we could get in a desert. The creme brûlée... More

Had never been before. Heard it had been renovated and went to try it out. Being a rather seasoned traveller, on many occasions I have enjoyed my food but it has been a long time since I felt the WOW effect!!! It happened to me at Bruno's Bistrot. Had the most delicious portobello I have tasted in my life with... More

Since it's recent renovation we decided to give it another try. Formerly we thought it was just okay. Now, it is outstanding in decor, staff attentiveness, and menu. The chef came to our table to talk about the evening specials and wine pairing. The rack of lamb was absolutely outstanding and the fish of the day was mouth-watering. We will... More

Bruno's is out of the tourist area of Merida but well worth the trip! They just recently redecorated the restaurant by expanding the indoor dining area and new wonderful decor. The menu has changed but is still wonderful, service great and Bruno is available to explain any of the menu. Absolutely, a wonderful meal! Highly recommend to anyone looking for... More

After a two month closure for remodeling, Bruno is back! Fabulous new French bistro look and much bigger capacity. Restrooms are now inside and air conditioned. Outdoor terrace is even lovelier with the custom waterfall. And the food is almost the same but a slightly smaller menu. Yes, the scrumptious escargots are still there. Great new bar.
