Great Food and Great for Vegetarians!

Finding a vegetarian choice in Merida is not an easy task but Amaro is the place to have great food, not only for vegetarians but also for no-veggies. The place is beautiful and the service is good (but not exactly the best). Prices are high if you compare it with some other places around but the... read more

What a charming restaurant off of Calle 60. The setting was wonderful with an open ceiling to the sky. The service was very attentive and professional. A good choice of Vegetarian and non-Vegetarian optional, but not too many to diminish the quality.

It can be very difficult finding a suitable restaurant when on holiday. This was the case when we spent a week in Merida. Although there were many good restaurants we found in the first few days we found something not exactly right for us. Either the food was too salty or not cooked enough or was too exotic or the...

The place was great as far as the availability or proximity to the main square. The issues we had were the cooks inability to cook lobster correctly then expected us to pay full price for lobster that wasn't edible. Which we did. The tip is included in the bill even if their service was bad. The live music was great.

There is a pleasant setting in a courtyard hung with original art. We sat by an abstract portrait of Marilyn Monroe. I had very good stuffed peppers. My husband's stuffed eggplant was a little bland. The bread is whole grain. Good service.

They weren't very busy when we arrived. Our waiter, Victor, was very funny and explained drinks. We shared a pork Yucatan dish, it was large portion, a little dry, could have used some sauce. It was tasty though. I liked the photos on the wall and the history of the home. Senor Quintana Roo was born there. One interesting thing... More

Don't be misled by the narrow entrance; the restaurant opens out into a very large courtyard where you can dine comfortably. During a week's stay, this is where we chose to come back a second time. The menu is large and includes a vegetarian section; we were please with everything we ordered. The location is just one block off the... More

Creative, well-made food. Large menu. Best atmosphere for a restaurant we went to. Try the draft beer - it's a local pale ale, not a normal Mexican lager.

Amaro is a solidly reliable restaurant - good food, great service and a quality guitarist-singer after 8:30 PM. We've gone here repeatedly over the last few years and can honestly say we have never been disappointed.
