The host of our B&B has recommended this place. It was only a 15 mins walk away. The Margaritas were very good and the lime soup was OK. We took chicken fajitas which tasted very well, but by surprise, we both became ill that night. Just a coincedence? The service was OK and I can imagine that this place attracts... More

Wish I was more hungry the night I had visited! Was lucky to get a table as it was pretty full the night I went. I had the Mayan Lime soup and a cocktail, they were both excellent and the soup was pretty filling as soup goes. I paid about MXP 105 (about £5). The restaurant is just off the... More

First let me say that we only went to the one on Paseo and it was excellent! We went 3 times during our stay and each time was great. The buffet was both fresh and plentiful. The main meat items were made to order as well as the fried items. We found the place both delicious and a great value.

The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is Not Mayan, but is Tex/max, Mexican and Yucatecan. It is grilled to perfection and very flavorful. The weekend buffet is without a doubt the best in Yucatan. We have dined in about 30 restaurants in Merida and this hands down the BEST.

I have eaten at the Paseo Montejo location a number of times during my summer vacations to Merida and the food is always fresh and tasty. They have a friendly outdoor patio that is often full during the summer nights.

We were on a city tour of Merida and the tour guide recommended this place. As others have said it is a tourist trap, and caters largely for non-local customers. That said, it is conveniently located in the city centre and serves tasty inexpensive food and drink. The menu is extensive and caters for all tastes. If you are inclined... More

Unavoidable tourist trap for the Tour Operators here in Merida, this restaurant is only worth for its location in the city center. The "traditional" food is of the level of a fast food (and served cold...). But the worst are the waiters making everything for you to consume more with fake smiles and repetitive jokes. We ordered 2 glasses of... More

While in Merida, don't miss the opportunity to try authentic Mayan cuisine. Everything is prepared fresh, including the tortillas, which are soft and warm and delicious. Everything we ordered was great: fish and chicken dishes, including fish cooked in a banana leaf. I particularly liked the turkey and lime soup! Service was great, and we managed despite the language gap.... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend in Merida, and she was right. I had never had authentic Mayan food before, and it was a real treat. Everything here is prepared to order from fresh local ingredients. The fish was amazing, and a simple taco plate for a very reasonable price was a treat I will never forget. The servers... More

They have great food. Try buffet all you can eat. Traditional Mexican food, tacos, charro beans, meat cuts, everything is delicious. Prices are good. They open at 1 PM great for lunch or dinner.
