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

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.
