After tasting this super, delicious... More

One of the last to have an authentic tortilladora in from making authentic good tasting tortilladoras. Selection of beers and some liquor. The extensive menu is Mexicfan on one side and Yucatecan on the other to help ignorant gringos like me to learn more about the foods here. Everything was attractively served. The table salsa was some of the best... More

Happy to have stopped here for lunch. Great Yucatan cuisines at reasonable price. Very good and friendly service. The guests can see the tortillas being made.

Unfortunately this little gem of a restaurant is not easily driven by. You have to turn off of Prolongacion de Montejo just before the Siglo XXI convention center and movie theater and drive a little ways down the road. My husband and I had a long day of sightseeing and decided to pull out our City Passport coupon book to... More

This restaurant has excellent Mexican and Yucatan food (my preference), very good service, reasonable prices, and Is extremely clean with a modern look and feel on the inside. Outdoor seating is available under a cabana. You can custom-design your salsa and the beer is very cold. It is easily accessible and there's plenty of free parking across the street. My... More

Well-crafted, true Yucatan dishes served by capable staff who took excellent care of us all evening. Their recommendations for entrees were spot-on, as I wanted to try the local dishes and appreciated some help. They made our family dinner a highlight of our visit to Merida. Finally, the prices were great, even the drinks, surprising for this level of atmosphere,... More

This is one of the best restuarants currently available in Merida. As long as you don't visit at Mexican lunch time (2pm-4pm). Unfortunately, as it's a family run business, their a little short on waiting staff, and when it gets busy at lunch you'll find the service struggles a little. My third beer never materialised and the personal chili didn't... More

Want a lunch that you will be taking about for days....try Habaneros. Not on the menu, ask one of the many chiefs...they are there to please and eating here will please you each time. Try the shrimp pizza....wow...makes me hungry just thinking about Habaneros.

Young and vibrant spouse owners, you will get personal attention since they also waiter, it’s a small restaurant with really good ambient, uses really fresh ingredients nothing is frozen, is made right at the moment, nothing fancy and very clean. Owners make everything possible for a unique experience. Menu is based on local dishes but there is a B-side which... More
