We dropped into this restaurant in the St. Lucia area of Merida and was pleasantly surprized with excellent food, fantastic staff and nice atmosphere. I had a traditional Mexican dish and my wife had fish. We traded and shared, both entrees were great. We saw that they also sold pizza so we came back again and were not disappointed. Well... More

We were looking for a sit-down restaurant in the area near Santa Lucia, in a reasonable price range. Our Spanish is poor, but the owner took the time to greet us and help us with the menu. I chose the fish, hubby the enchiladas. Were pleasantly surprised by the serving size and very pleased with both our meals. They both... More

The main courses are excellent. Refined taste, surprizing combinations of meat, vegetables and fruits. And the waiter and owner were very nice.

We really enjoyed the fun conversation with our server but when the food came it was too good to talk. Wonderful meal as part of a wonderful evening.

A very nice place, excellent service, succulent food and something amazing is that I thought that because of the taste and quality of the dishes would be expensive but amazingly it wasn't. If you go to Merida in Mexico this place is a MUST.

The first night we rolled into Merida, we got terribly lost. By the time we found our hotel in the centro, we were tired and just a bit on edge. We were also hungry. Wanting to get something quick and then turn in, we went to the first place we came to, which was El Chile Habanero. It doesn't look... More

We went with a group of six and had a variety of dishes. The price was Very Reasonable. The sauces were excellent and the dishes cooked perfectly. For the money this restaurant is definitely worth a return.

Wasn't going to review this as mixed feelings but here goes anyway. We walked by, looked at the menu outside, nice guy who spoke good English came out and sold us so in we went. Inside it's quite classy, lovely and cool, spotlessly clean and definitely has a more sophisticated atmosphere than most restaurants in Mexico. My wife got a... More

Went here for pizza (daughter) and Yucatan food. The thin crust pizza was very good nice toppings and crunchy crust and for under $120 pesos, half the price as down the street. The sample platter I had was again very good, with Poc Chuc, Pollo Pibil and other authentic foods. Paintings on the wall are for sale. Nice atmosphere, attentive... More

I really like this restaurant! Last year, when we came, the power just happened to be out on a couple of blocks, but since Chili Habanero operates on gas they were able to accomadate us--we enjoyed dinner under the stars in their courtyard. We REALLY wanted to relive this magical experience this time around, but were disappointed to find out... More
