Great authentic Mayan food! The paunches and sopa de lima are by far the best with an ice cold glass of lemonade!

One of the most traditional meals in Yucatan! The panuchos are amazing! The place is very nice and the mariachis are very pleasant.

We were just arriving from Campeche and missed the cochinita in Hecelchakan so we were craving for authentic food. We stayed at Presidente Merida, just across the street and we walked to Los Almendros. I knew they were good, but not this much, we tried different small plates to try a little bit of everything and the best were the... More

There is nothing special about the appearance or atmosphere of this place but the food is great. My favorite regional Mexican foods are from Oaxaca and Yucatan. I got the sampler place with lots of local delicacies. Now I'm hungry again.

We were told by some locals that they had the best soap de Lima in the city and we weren't disappointed. The soup was delicious as was the pechuga de pollo yucateca. We also ordered a side of the green habanero salsa and it was one of the hottest that I have tried and I loved it. The prices were... More

The location off of Calle 52 is a classic local restaurant that has a feeling of Mexico in the 60's. The regional specialties were excellent and the service was outstanding. If you are staying at Anna's b&b(highly recommended) this is just a short walk away. There is a good chance you will be the only non-local eating at this charming... More

We had visited Merida in the early '70's and eaten a wonderful dinner at Los Almendros, and again a few years later, so I was really looking forward to eating there again. Walked to the address and found it is now called the Grand Almendros and is only open on Sunday. so we went around the corner to the plain... More

Yucatecan is one of my favorite regional cuisines in Mexico and nobody does it better than Los Almendros.
