simple, fun and inexpensive

enjoyed this home cooked meal feeling and the friendly staff. I just had chicken soup due to an upset stomach, but my husband ate a traditional meal and enjoyed it a lot. According to other patrons and travelers. A great place for lunch with a set menu but different choices for only 50 pesos!

We had comida del dia for a lunch here during our stay in Merida. It was reasonably priced and good. OK place for a quick lunch.

Really enjoyed our meal here. We had beef fajitas and cochinita pibil. Both delicious. Friendly staff, good price. We'll probably be back to try more of the menu!

The good was super tasty and good value. The staff were friendly and answered our questions about the Mexican cuisine. Word of warning: try to avoid using the loos!

Cheap food if you order the "meal of the day" 55 pesos for soup, snacks, main course and a drink. A series of selections are written on a white board by the street. The menu choices include local specialities. We ate here a couple of times and were pleased with the food. Its a busy place with lots of local... More

I have been eating at Trapiche three times a week for years. I always choose one of four or five lunch specials. It's hearty yucatecan food - Occasionally their food is a little bland, but overall they deliver a good meal at a very reasonable price - $50 pesos for a soup, main course and a drink. So it's good... More

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!
