First restaurant in Merida after touring Mexico for 1 week. Ate with my partner & daughter. The food was average, something I would rely upon when hungry but not rave to family and friends about.

My girlfriend and I ate the burritos here yesterday. I had the pork which was delicious, however my girlfriends vegetarian burrito was quite bland and dull. Still, it's a decent atmosphere and the prices were reasonable as was the service so I found it a good place to eat.

My title says it all. We got chicken mole (which was good), quesadillas (good) and rice with platanos (also solid). Overall this place has not much atmosphere but the service and food were very good, while price was great. Don't come here for a romantic dinner, but come if you want a solid, yummy, affordable meal!

el trapiche is a hole in the wall kind of place, budget minded, local food, no real ambiance, waiters aer there to take your order and bring your order, questionable sanitation, DO NOT use the restrooms. Other than that you can get a good solid meal at a very reasonable price, the juices they mix are fabulous. Local tip -... More

Very convenient plato del dia for 50 pesos incl. soup, meal, and juice (try agua de chaya). Daily menu ends by 3:30 but you can even pay for it one day in advance so that they keep your meal until 6 or 7 p.m.

I also had a very good Cesar Salad, and the Poc Chuc was very tender and tasty. They have 4 choices for their... More

We have eaten here every time we come to Merida. So at least several times now in a few years. I see a pattern with this local eatery. The food is fair, some meals better than others, but often they are not very hot. I ordered a pollo chipoltle dish, but is seriously tasted more like chinese food. It was... More

Food is average level, the bill is low, the real problem is that the left saloon is near the bathrooms and they are OPEN, spreading their "eau de toilette" around... not the best when you are trying to eat!

We stopped in here for a quick bite, refreshing fresh fruit/vege juices, good variety on the menu, the pastor pizza was delicious.

Had the vegetarian burrito and the cheese pizza. Both were a bit heavy on the melted cheese, which was not great cheese but not bad either. My kids were happy with the pizza. Food is fine, especially for the price - very cheap, especially considering its amazing location right by the main plaza.
