A "slice" of heaven

In a city where finding good pizza is akin to wandering a gastronomic desert, Rescoldos is a refreshing oasis. But it doesn't stop at pizza, the handmade ravioli is sublime, the crisp Greek salad is one of the best I've had and be sure to save room (if you can) for the outrageous homemade gelato... read more

My family and I just had a terrific dinner here. We sat in the garden area in the back and the ambiance was very nice. Our tables were lit by candlelight and there was a cool breeze flowing through the area. I definitely recommend getting a table in the garden if you can. As for the food, it was absolutely... More

We ordered several mediterranean items from the menu, most of them were a little bland for our taste. All ingredients are fresh however which is a plus and almost everything is homemade. Our only complaint from that visit would be that the pricing does not correspond (in our opinion) to what you are getting for example the Tzatziki was not... More

Sure it's a little off the beaten track, but I guarantee you won't regret it! The service is perfect, the food makes an excellent and very welcome change from corn and beans, and the place is a gorgeous courtyard with a little fountain that feels like an oasis of calm in the busy din of Merida.

Found Rescoldos on Trip Advisor. Great chorizo-ravioli with creamy cilantro sauce; Greek salad, garlic bread slice and (I couldn't resist) home-made gelato (I chose chocolate-cherry. Five-stars for sure

Every year we return to Rescoldos and are never disappointed. Everything I've eaten has been excellent and the biggest problem is deciding what to order. The food is fresh and it's obvious it's made with attention to detail and care. The outside patio is delightful and Rescoldos continues to be our favorite restaurant in Merida.

We had a wonderful meal outdoors on the restaurant's patio - since we got there at 6 p.m. we were the only diners for awhile. Service was impeccable and the food was great. A lot to choose from on their menu. I had a Greek calzone and my husband had a ravioli dish. Would have loved to have gone back... More

We had just moved into our rental house and got lost and found Rescoldos. It turned out to be a half block from our house!!! We had one the best pizza's we've had...made in a wood burning oven. Ate in a lovely garden and had an overall wonderful first night in MERIDA.
