This restaurant is a gem. Looks expensive from the outside and we were hesitant, travelling on a budget but the friendly waitress showed us inside and they have a beautiful courtyard out back! We chose to eat outside and enjoyed a great conversation with who we think might be the owner - a chatty guy who delighted in telling us... More

We just finished lunch at 2012 and it was a delicious meal. I doubt if there are many places in Merida that are as charming as this quirky spot. The vegetarian meal and the pork dish were excellent. Great value too. Charming staff. I will be heading back there before we quit Merida that's for sure.

That's the time we had to wait for our dinner. Cocktails were terrible too. In these conditions hard to say anything about the food. Avoid.

Lot's of veggie options, the enchiladas were some of the best veggie ones we have had in Mexico. There are so many awesome smoothie options too, none of this 1 or 2 flavor style, they have one with 7 fruits! Loved both of ours. The horchata was thick and had flavor other than water which happens often. The picante sauce... More

We started the night in the courtyard. With the breeze there that was quite enjoyable. However after 5 minutes we were asked to move inside as a crew wanted to set up the stage for a clubbing event. The music was not bad, but so loud that you could not talk anymore. Not our idea of a quiet dinner with... More

I had a chance encounter that led me to try this restaurant, and I'm so glad I did. The food is excellent, the atmosphere friendly and comfortable, the staff most accommodating. There are two women who operate this restaurant, and they do it with genuine care for their clients and pride in the food they serve. If you are looking... 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
