Don't hesitate

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.

Rescoldos was 1 1/2 blocks from the casa wae rented. The restaurant's exterior does not give you a clue that the interior contains a romantic candle-lit garden. The food is Mediterranean. We ate there 3 times. Each time, we ordered the Greek salad which is very good as a starter. The raviolis and wood fired pizzas are as good as... More

Our party of four really enjoyed our meal here. We have been wintering in the Yucatan for 4 years and are familiar with many of the Merida restaurants, however this was our first visit...it won't be our last. Everything was super fresh, home made and very tasty. The special pizza of the night, asparagus and artichoke was as good as... More

After several days of eating Yucatecan food, I was dying for a pizza. Rescoldos hit the spot. It has a wood-burning oven and a beautiful patio. Even though I ate inside, the house pizza was delicious, the service attentive and the owner, Jake, came to say hello. Nice music from the Great American Songbook. A nice break from the wonders...
