I wish this place was close to where I live. I would eat there weekly. The outside looks very similar to every other place in Merida, but once you open the doors you are in a beautiful restaurant. The staff and owner are great, but most importantly the food is amazing! My wife and I and our three kids were... More

I came to Merida for an overnight trip from my resort in Tulum. We rented a car and drove the 4 hours across the peninsula, I must admit it was a splendid drive! We made a stop to see Chechen Itza and swim in a connote! It was a great road trip! Once we got a Merida the first stop... More

A lovely courtyard restaurant within walking distance of the city center. A lovely couple from Canada who offer great service and exceptional pizza in a very calm outside courtyard.

Rescoldos is an adorable spot that is owned by a husband and wife. The garden is beautiful and the staff welcoming. I had the falafels and pita bread. THe pita bread is made in the wood burning stove and falafels are home made. Everything about this place is charming and delicious.

My husband and I went to Rescoldos after finding it by accident, and are we glad we did. It was late, and we weren't that hungry but we sat in the beautiful night lit courtyard at the back and ordered a few tapas. We had the potato/feta cakes which were delicious and the falafel which were the best I've ever... More

For good fresh pasta and wood-oven baked pizza in Merida, don't miss Rescoldos; prices are very accessible, very good service. The cool evenings are perfect for the courtyard tables.

The typical street in the historic center of Merida, Yucatan is certainly aged, often colorful, and sometimes rather non-descript; especially with the entrance doors to a particular address closed. Passing by Rescoldos, then, is astonishing as you peer inside this artsy bistro north of the main plaza. The creative use of the space lures you in to the outdoor dining... More

My brother and his partner took me to Rescoldos twice during my recent visit to Merida, and both times it was absolutely delicious. We sat in the courtyard which is very pleasant. Service is excellent, and the pizzas, which are cooked in the wood fired oven, are truly the best. I enjoyed every bite and can not wait until my... More

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
