We loved the atmosphere - inner courtyard of an old, well known home. The food was superb, service was good and we lucked in on a night were they had live entertainment - very nice!

This place has a complete vegetarian section of the menu, from salads to main dishes, also it has other non vegetarian options I would recommend the eggplant In Yucateca Salsa !!! This place is in the town

Food - tasty and delicious! Staff - quick, super attentive and lovely, could not have done more Atmosphere - fabulous, set in a leafy piazza with a single soloist singing sweet spanish ballads, perfecto. Despite being touted as a vegetarian restaurant we ordered the regional speciality meat dishes, panuchos, cochinita pibil and pollo a la yucatan. Everything was perfectly cooked... More

Not simply for the food, but because of whose home you are in. Once owned by the regions name sake, Don Andres Quintana Roo...oh, and have a cuba libre and avocado pizza or bruschetta while you're enjoying thel ive music.

Having just traveled 12 hours by air and land, our jet lagged party perked up as soon as we entered the beautiful Amaro Restaurant. The service and food was wonderful and everyone raved about the Yucatecan Margaritas and the Sopa de Lima. The live music was beautiful and the open courtyard stunning. Thank you!

Great choice of both vegetarian and meat dishes. Beautiful patio, partly covered so that rain is not an issue. We ordered one vegetarian and one meat dish (plus appetizer and wine). Excellent food and very good service combined with a beautiful downtown but quiet location. The prices are appropriate.

Il posto e' davvero carino ,forse un po troppo turistico. Si mangia davvero bene ,c'e' anche la musica live che non disturba. Non e' affatto caro. The place is really cute, maybe a little too touristy. We eat really well, there 's also live music that does not disturb. It s not expensive.

Recently, we dined at Amaro. Two members of the party ordered the same dish. Two members became ill the following day. This is the second time we encountered a problem with the food.

This is advertised as a vegetarian restaurant but most of the choices on the menu are not, so be ready for that. There are no more than on most menus here, and so far we've managed in ordinary places. It looked good as we approached. But what turned us away was the staff - as we approached the empty restaurant... More
