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

Located in the center of Merida, close to the main square, the restaurant is in a very charming building with a large patio with a wonderul tree at the center. This could be the perfect place for a romantic dinner or a relaxing evening after a long day visiting the local attractions. With some real good and authentic food this... More

Merida, strangely enough, seems to not have a lot of resturants to enjoy seafood even though it is close to the gulf of mexico. However, Amaro has yet to disappoint us with the quality of their seafood. Yes, this is a tourist restaurant and frequented by groups, but we go their and set under the portal and enjoy watching the... More

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
