I had read plenty about this restaurant, although I like to eat vegetarian (not religiously), my husband does not. To my delight we walked by Amaro at lunch time and my husband suggested we eat here! Both of us were happy as the selection of meat, fish and vegetarian were plentiful. The atmosphere was lovely...In a courtyard off the street... More

We were looking for something vegan and they have a few things on the menu but they really don't get the difference between vegan and vegetarian so you need to be very specific if that is what your after. Really enjoyed the restaurant and they had live music. A very romantic atmosphere and definitely for adults and not children or... More

My hubby and I ate here 3 times during a week long stay in Merida. Once for lunch and twice for dinner. I am seafood vegetarian and they had great vegetarian options available. The courtyard (interior garden) area is a beautiful oasis. The band they had playing one evening was amazing - such great talent - made for a very... More

Amaro is a restaurant experience travelers to Mérida must not miss. The waiters are old world professionals who cater to your every whim and often think of your needs before you do. The setting is absolutely lovely, and the food is delicious. The multi-lingual staff will explain every dish to you, if you like. Eat slowly, enjoy the golden age... More

We ate here during lunch time, trying to get some shade and avoid the heat. The interior garden is very quiet and relaxing, and the waiter was very kind and helpful. He even made some recommendations of places to visit around Merida. The food was very good and well cooked.

This restaurant was close to my two week hotel stay in Merida and therefore saw me attending it twice when I was in the mood for a higher level of ambiance and quality for food and service. I easily rate the Amaro as "very good" in virtually all respects; quality of food, service, amenities ( clean restrooms) with a pleasant... More

Though we spent in Merida in total not more than half a day, we managed to visit Amaro twice since we loved it a lot! We saw some other dinner spots from Tripadvisor top list, however, they were looking more like cantines (I am speaking only about atmosphere/ interior, no ideas about the food!). Back to Amaro: when we first... More

Inmerse in downtown, the restaurant Amaro is set in an old house, the place is not very big, usually have some exposure (photography,crafts, etc.) At night a trovador enlivened the evening which gives a bohemian air. I could try thes pizza on 2 occasions and definitely its thin and crispy batter make it my favorite! although the Argentine empanadas and... More

We went to Amaro again and enjoyed the quiet evening in the rain. Setting under the wrap around portal with the elegant stone columns which have to be several hundred years old was an experience. Since few people braved the rain, there were only 4 other tables occupied for dinner. The food is always good, we started with the nachos,... More

This restaurant has a large open courtyard with a big, beautiful tree growing inside it. Since there were threatening clouds overhead, the manager advised us to take a table in the area that was covered. The walls had an exhibit of very interesting photography of people. The menu was fairly large, with a lot of options for vegetarians and meat-eaters.... More
