Avoid!

Don't eat here! A waiter lurks by the door and encourages you in and you may be attracted by the english language menu. But it would be a mistake. The food is tasteless and badly cooked. The service was dreadful - the waiter spilled my wine and didn't bother to replace it - he then disappeared... read more

I have to say that I did not expect much of this place as last time I was here it was really forgettable, (you can read my previous review) but I have been recently there again and I am always glad to re-review when it is to recognize that service, and specially the food quality have been improved. Try the... More

This is a restaurant located in an adjacent street near the wonderful Roman Theatre area in Mérida. It is O.K if you are visiting the area and you just want a quick meal because you have the option of a set menu and also of a quite big choice of tapas. Inside you have air conditioning (very important if you... More

We opted for the fixed menu and I had as first plate, bean soup, that had no taste at all. The second was chicken and it was very salty. I tried to change desert... More

Had we seen the comments on this restaurant on TripAdvisor, under a review of the unconnected(?) Hostal El Alfarero, we would not have visited it, but unfortunately we had not and we did! We are a family of two adults with two teenage daughters. I speak good Spanish, my husband some Spanish but my daughters little or none. We arrived... More
