Visited for dinner and had the pizza of the day (prosciutto,mozzarella and rocket), the jamaica margarita and some of their homemade gelato. All ready good. Pizza was simple, tasty and perfectly cooked in the wood-fired oven. Margarita was rather light on the tequila - especially considering we are... read more

Had a wonderful dinner in a picturesque courtyard. Hand-fired pizza and "as good as your momma's" lasagna. The best dinner in Merida at a wonderful price (150 pesos or about 9$ USD for whole meal). The chef was very kind and the whole atmosphere was just great. Good place for: romantic Friday dinners, small to medium size groups (2-8 people).... More

Decided to go back after a great meal three years ago. Somehow the experience was not as good. The chef didn't seem as engaged and the meals were all ok but not great. Pizza dough still excellent but the lasagna and the pizza we had were pedestrian. Service mediocre and dessert choices not interesting enough to try.

the atmosphere is a bit dark and space crammed - may be because we went at night. The mix drinks -recommend you avoid, we tried 2 different drinks of the menu and both were not good,even the soft drinks were flat -maybe the bartender was off for the night. We had two different appetizers - the soup of the day... More

This is a small and intimate restaurant with a charming outdoor courtyard to which most diners will gravitate. The soft uplighting on the tropical plantings along the courtyard wall enhances the dining experience. There is an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven which has a tendency to produce inconsistent pizzas. The pizzas are thin-crusted and often lack the Maillard browning that makes... More

We've been to Merida four times, and this winter will be our fifth, and Rescoldos is always one of the very first places we hit. I would say that the outdoor patio is one of the prettiest in Merida. We see from their Facebook page that there are some new items on the menu so we'll definitely be trying some... More

Dinner was great, the host (owners) are super hands on and very nice. The food was exceptional... I sat outs side in the night air and listen to the beat of this neighborhood.
