Their sangria with vodka was good. They served yes snacks that could have been a meal. Check out the garden in the rear. It... read more

The place is very nicely decorated, but the food is not special. We had panchos (what's in a name) but it tasted like it was prepared long before we ordered it. The music is kind of weird and very loud especially considering the average age of the visitors which was above 55.

Dinner at this restaurant was a very pleasant experience. We sat up stairs which was very nice. Party of 6 of us and we all enjoyed our meals.

Margaritas and soft shell crab, what a combo but both are outstanding at Ponchos. Good happy hour with botanos, fun place to met expats at the bar.

My wife and I went there twice, for drinks during the two for one from six p.m. to nine p.m. and food one of the times. The setting is charming, with excellent tables in an open sky with huge trees. However, most people (including us) sat at the bar to get the two-for-one opportunity. With different bartenders both evenings, we... More

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
