Nice ambience. Excellent advice on wines. Cooked exactly to order with great flavor and ample portions. Not too pricey. Very dim in some spots so bring a light.

If you want a restaurant experience that's full of Mexican panache and packs a punch for all the right reasons, make sure you dine at Pancho's when you're in Merida. It's one of my favourite restaurants in Mexico! We had dinner on the two nights we visited Merida - the first as a couple and the second as our group... More

Mexican food as American's typically expect, but delicious! Drinks were great. Service was great. Atmosphere is great (ask to sit on the top level for a view of the cathedral).

We were recommended this restaurant for New Year's Eve, and when we arrived it was clearly a popular spot to be. It was well decorated, and those without reservations were being turned away. The menu was fixed for the evening, at a not insignificant price for Mexico. Unfortunately, we had to make our own fun for the evening - we... More

For mean dish we had the peper steak and the crab. Both were not special at all. The preparatoin of the guacamole was nice and I liked the red... More

Visited for dinner in October. Loved the setting of this restaurant, outdoor seating made you feel like you were pretty secluded from the rest of the town. I had shrimp tacos which were excellent and a jamaica mojito. The meal also came with free plantain chips! I saw the table behind me had something flambed which they made a big... More

Pancho's has flavor, and the area that is open to the stars and especially the Raised tables on platforms make it a wonderful evening. The food is good, waiters friendly, and I do Reccomend ordering the Spanish Coffee (Flamed at your table, it is spectacular!).
