We have been visiting Merida for close to ten years and we have never been disappointed. The food and service are consistently excellent. I highly recomend the salmon carpaccio and every and any pasta as they are all superb.

Lots of vegetarian options and a great lemonade! Great location. Bruscetta Classical, Linguine Vegetariano and spaghetti aglio y olio were all delicious.

I love coming to il caffe and I always order the Pasta Campestre - It's delicious and one of the best italian dishes to be found in Mérida. Good wine list and a fantastic location. You can't go wrong.

A tasteful meal, pleasant atmosphere and attention to customer service. If you have the weather, eat outdoors and enjoy the ambiance of nightime in Merida. Food was good, wine selection is good and service was just great. Recommended for an evening meal for sure.

Located off a courtyard between Calle 60 and Calle 58 this place has a wonderful European feel. Nothing fancy but great food and excellent service. Prices are very reasonable. A great place to sit outside and people-watch.
