Had exceptional smoothies one afternoon in the courtyard, so, decided to return that evening. Engaged with the owner, on several levels,he said this restaurant was the only Mayan owned restaurant in Merida. We enjoyed our meal, & returned the next, our last nite in Merida. The lady that does the service knows her stuff, both nites we enjoyed our meal... More

I was wandering without an idea of where to have dinner, and got two recommendations from folks on the street. I'm so glad that I went with this one! The family that was running the place was very friendly, the food was really good -- just what I was looking for, being Yucatecan and flavored carefully, and the courtyard provided... More

Espacios Maya is one of those places who manage to make everybody happy: the vegeterian, the one in search of culinary adventures, the one craving for a good burger or pasta after a pile of tortillas. Sopa de lima and whole wheat bread to die for - ask for a cafe' de olla and you won't regret it. Charming atmosphere,... More

The food here is wonderful, and the service is friendly! For high quality traditional food, this is the place to go in Merida! There are also some good vegetarian options.

The food was actually pretty good but not the best place to eat in Merida. Especially for the price. There is better food at a cheaper price at other places. However, I have nothing negative to say about Espacios Mayas. It just wasn't my favorite

I enjoyed a delicious meal here. It started with a good soup chock full of vegetables. I chose crumbed chicken breast for the main and it was served with rice, beans and salad, very tasty. Then a very good arroz con leche rice pudding, well-flavoured. Included was a large glass of fruit water - I tried the tamarind and it... More

This is not longer a vegetarian restaurant but has a regular menu and a separate vegetarian menu. BEWARE of items on the veggie menu containing guten. The main ingredient is meat but the staff seem to believe it's vegetarian and will pass it off as vegetarian. It's not. Check it out for yourself in a supermarket if in doubt.

I am back in Merida to do some work for the next few weeks. I get breakfast at the hotel I am staying at but other meals - well I have to find something that fits my vegetarian diet. I always stop in at this restaurant because I get great tasting food at a reasonable price and it is vegetarian.... More

The options for vegetarian restaurants in Merida are rather limited. While staying in Merida with my fiance we looked up our options for vegetarian food and came across this one. The first time we stopped around 12:30pm we found that this place did not open until 2pm (which it does not say on the front door to the restaurant) on... More
