The gas heaters could not warm up the terrace, and I could not find a single peppercorn or remnant of one in my steak au poivre. However, the place was buzzing and full of locals. This is one of a chain of five restaurants in Merida, which caters to the ex-pat crowd. I wouldn't go out of my way to... More

there is a second trotters in the downtown area on calle 60 y 55 on the park. Very nice restaurant, menu a bit limited but very good Italian. Wood fire pizza oven. Beautiful inside with outside tables on the park. One of better choices in limited downtown choices.

It was our first trip to Merida and friends said our first stop had to be Trotters. The steak was perfect. Certainly up there with the best steaks I have ever had. Service was terrific. The place had a very upscale vibe. They also know how to make a good margarita. I will be back.

We returned for my birthday and the restaurant holds up to our previous excellent experience. The greeting at the front door to each individual you come in contact with is warm and real. We had drinks at the bar, since we are expats we tend to dine earlier, happy hour cannot be beat, half off on the drinks. Our pick... More

Good food, good service, a little expensive for Mexico. But it is worth the experience.off course I am a regular customer so most of the employees and owners knows me and I always get the best seating and personal attention.they have three more restaurants in Merida but for my taste this the best food.

I had a wonderful meal. The rib steak was prepared exactly as l had asked. They offered an acceptable wine list and the wine we selected was a good choice from Argentina.

This steakhouse tops my list for great atmosphere. Expansive wall of doors opened to courtyard dining. Our party sat next to the doors and it was perfect the balance of indoor dining with fresh air. The food was tasty. I chose steak because it is a steakhouse. It was average, however I would try it again. The mini sliders were... More

A friend told me this was the best restaurant in Merida... He was completely wrong Trotter's restaurant..... Wine list selection is over the average price, small terrace outside always opened, dirty table cloths, dirty silverware. Carlos the server did an amazing job, he took care of all the needs, every single request was considered and solved by Carlos. He opened... More
