I went with a group of 6 and we tried everything. The encrusted onions where awesome. The rest of the menu had a hard time competing with this dish. The stuffed calamari and foie gras were very nice. My duck was really nice and all of my friend enjoyed their dinner. I recommend the chef spend more time in the... More

Full of flavour, interesting and good bit of Mexican spice. The open kitchen was a great backdrop to an impossibly calm kitchen given the wonderful food that appeared.

I don't know if this is the best restaurant in Merida, but certainly it must be one of the best. It's local food made with a modern approach. Great flavor, appealing presentation, well thought and designed dishes. And, as opposed to most modern gourmet restaurants, portions are normal size. What else could you ask for?

When traveling, hubby and I are always on the lookout for great dining experiences. We heard about Nectar from the chef of the inspired Soma restaurant in Chelem, so decided to drive over and check it out, as we had an errand to run near City Center. What a wonderful dining experience this was, and I truly mean experience. The... More

We asked for a glass of champagne, but they only sell bottles. We got a lot of advice what to order. Food was perfect. Service excellent. We... More

The new ambiance is much much better..Open kitchen and totally different feel to the previous location. Nectar is still in its "Soft" Opening stage but the entire dining experience was outstanding! 4 of us dined there having... More

Nectar was recommended by a friend that lives in Merida (British Guy) and he said it was his favorite restaurant in Merida. Upon hearing that I decided to go. I called the Chef's personal cell phone to make my reservation (he spoke perfect english). I told him I was recommended by a friend and that I was a restaurant owner... More

I just returned from over 25 days in Spain eating at some of the best restaurants including Mugaritz in San Sebastian. I would... More

Maybe we caught Nectar on a bad night, but I don't think so. Nectar came highly recommended by several industry people in Merida, so we hopped a cab and arrived at about 9pm. We ordered wine by the glass which was tasty, and our server was very attentive. We orded chicharron of octopus, caesar salad, a sashimi dish, and beef... More
