The courtyard was quiet and intimate with a lovely fountain. The waitstaff was friendly. The food was excellent. The ingredients were fresh. The pasta was perfectly prepared. The pizza and calzone had the perfect balance of soft dough surrounded by a crispy crust that comes from their wood burning oven. We would have returned a second time in our 4... More

Interesting menu, a little bit of everything. Nice wood fired pizza. Highlight was patio at night. Use your imagination and communication tower becomes Tour Eiffel! Wine list disappointing, but great for beer. Lavender gelato!

Our first visit here was based on the proximity to the house where we were staying during our week visit to Merida; our second visit was by choice. Both times, we ate on the patio which, despite being a bit on the dark side to read the menu without the assistance of the table's candle, was a perfect quiet and... More

This restaurant has the most lovely patio for dining. Covered with greenery and the sounds of a bubbling fountain mixed with the smell of the woodburning stove it is a little bit of heaven. We shared two appetizers. The spanikopita with tsaziki sauce was fabulous. The artichoke, mushroom cheese dip with pitas was so wonderfully flavored and perfectly balanced. Our... More

The husband and wife owners were very friendly and the pizza was perfect - crispy thin crust pizza with lots of flavourful toppings. The night was clear so we sat under the stars and enjoyed a gentle breeze on a hot February night in Merida. Plenty of food and too good to leave any behind, so we asked for the... More

A very pleasant place for dinner. The wine is good, which is not always the case in Merida restaurants. Some of the pizza specials are delightful, some not so much, but always interesting.

Medditeranean food in the heart of Merida, Mexico. I only went here once but they had excellent food and they had a surprisingly wide selection of vegetarian options. Definitely worth a visit.

Rescoldos has a pretty courtyard that is nice for a romantic dinner. I had the moussaka, which was absolutely delicious. My husband had entree envy and ended up eating several bites. It is a generous portion.

This is the second Merida trip we could treat ourselves to dinner at Rescoldos, and again we ate there more than once. We had two chilled soups (specials)--cream of asparagus and tomato Moroccan, a warm artichoke and spinach dip, a Caesar salad, lamb lasagna (!)--a special, a couple of now-addictive Salmon Rosa pizzas, and some pretty fine margaritas. All excellent.... More
