I don't write many reviews, as I am busy, so the ones I do write are about places and people I feel strongly about. Up until now my reviews have all been positive, we have met some lovely people and had some historic meals that we have truely enjoyed over the past few years and our travels in Cuba and... More

Food is good. They have yucatecan food, warm and yum tortillas, hand made. Make sure you ask for drink if the season which could be limeade, Jamaica(hibiscus), lemonade etc. good atmosphere

We were so disappointed with the restaurant. The first few times we went there it was good and I wrote a very good review. This time however it was a disaster. The waiters almost completely ignored us even though we were the only ones in the restaurant. They were on their cell phones most of the time. The waiter mixed... More

We went for supper. The meal was good, the service was good as well. There was no bread offered before the meal came. The main waiter we had was very friendly. Definitely the ambiance of the place does not match some of the others places in the Centro Merida area that are in the same price range.

We ate here twice, once for lunch by ourselves and then with friends. The food was absolutely incredible. The waitstaff each time was friendly and the service extremely good. The brochettes (2 huge) were fabulous as were the cheese empanadas. The portions are large so we ordered two appetizers and two entrees and shared. It was plenty for the four... More

My hotel recommended this restaurant. Maybe I just didn't order the best item on the menu but my meal was very disappointing. I had the fish which was dry and fishy. The service was very good however. The best thing about the restaurant was discovering the green drink "chaya maya" which people were drinking. I couldn't help but ask what... More

Just returned from Merida and ate at La Tradicion. Service was prompt and friendly; food was excellent. Wait staff is helpful (we don't speak fluent Spanish). No problem; our waiter helped us through the menu. We had no problem with any "tip scams". As you would do anywhere where you eat ALWAYS check the bill. We would eat there again.

I'm giving this place a poor review because of what seems to be a recurring scam. Our hotel gave us a coupon for 2 free drinks at that restaurant. Because others have written about those coupons not being honored I was very careful to determine that the drinks would be free. What was a bit unclear was whether the shot.of... More

If you are looking for traditional food from yucatan in downtown this is the perfect place, choose Miguel Angel to be your waiter the best service and guides you to choose food and drinks, also good ambience with a guitarist trobador .

We had a really lovely dinner until the bill arrived. The waiter had carefully crossed out the already included service charge (propina), and he then tried to include service charge again. Basically doubling his tip (200 pesos on 500 peso bill). I strongly suggest that you double check the bill and avoid using credit cards as they would not provide... More
