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

I know it is a strange title for a review but it is true. Why? Well, as you can see from the PR ad photo the restaurant is located in and around a courtyard with a very big (and beautiful) tree. During the rainy months (mid May to mid Sept.) there is a great deal of mold associated with that... More

We were there just yesterday and we are coming again today to meet a friend. My vegetarian husband was in awe-so many vegetarian options. And me, a carnivore, could still enjoy seafood or meat, although i still opted gor vegetarian - i got tired of so much pork for our 10 day stay in the city:) We were so tired... More

I already reviewed Amaro, but since we go there every night of our vacation in Merida, not necessary to eat, but also to enjoyed some of their wonderful "Margaritas Rocas y sin sal" I can say it is still one of our favorite in town if not the favorite. Ambiance is fabulous, Tony Martin the Trova is exceptional, the staff... More

Lunch was vegetarian fare and well presented. Dining is in the courtyard. Prices were a bit higher than some other fine restaurants by about $100 pesos average.

Good food but nothing special, no big portions, not cheap. Good singer, nice atmosphere right in downtown.
