It is located straight across the street from our hostel, Casa Familiar. Very big portions of food and drink. I had the Desayuno Tipico and it had a beef steak, eggs, onion and tomato scramble, some sort of corn bread. Delicious! Good service too.

I had some kind of special with fish and shrimp, and a huge strawberry juice. Absolutely fantastic. The owner was super friendly. I also ate at a couple of the fancier tourist-oriented places near the Parque de los Novios. This was a hundred times better.

Thank Kevin H

Merka is fairly basic and standard, but the food is very tasty and the staff is quite friendly. While all the food is quite good, the fresh orange juice was the highlight.

Thank Derek L
