This restaurant has good service, a clean and tidy dining room, and an interesting menu (although an English version would be a plus).

This restaurant is an absolute must if you visit Merida. We enjoyed super cuisine in a relaxed and well designed atmosphere with pleasant friendly service and surprisingly reasonable prices for a varied selections of wines. Timing between courses was just right allowing for conversation and enjoyment of the wine.

We had our only evening meal in Rex Numitor. It was a very quiet Monday evening. This restaurant is mentioned in the Michelin Guide for 2015. The service was excellent, the food delicious and the restaurant itself really pleasant. Good value too.

Had high hopes for this place, was looking forward to it after a bad meal the night before in another restaurant so was probably willing to overlook a few things. Started off well with nice octopus and shrimp starter, then nice gazpacho, mains okay, my fish was disappointing, pigs cheeks were okay if a bit tough, okay dessert, but the... More

We had read so much about this and made it a priority to visit. The food - platter of Jamon, chorizo and salchicon was excellent and we followed up with a salmorejo bowl before sharing a prawn dish. The food was excellent but perhaps we were early 8pm the service was poor at best. We were one of two tables... More

We stayed in Merida for 3 nights and had lunch and dinner in this wonderful place. Very good service, good wines and delicious food. When in season try their cherry gazpacho and beetroot salmorejo, a real treat. Creative food well prepared, fresh ingredients and not your everyday touristy food. They have nice 'menu' for lunch but also ala carte we... More

We chose the chefs special menu. Cherry gazpacho with olive oil ice cream was delicious. My cod was equally as good, however my companion had pork with noodles and the noodles were inedible - like eating rubber bands. When this was pointed out to the waitress she became very twitchy and from then on did not serve us, leaving the... More

I stayed three nights in Merida, and had dinner twice at Rex Numitor. I was so impressed with the refinement and innovativeness of the cuisine and the selection of local wines during my first dinner. Friendly, discrete and efficient service.

There was one other diner in this restaurant when we arrived, which by Spanish standards was early at 20:30, We chose the chef's recommendation, which was local Iberica chorizos and hams, gazpacho soup with olive oil ice cream on chopped ham. Loin of cod with roesti, spinach and a poached egg, cheesecake and icecream, wine, water and coffee included.

this restaurant is just off the main square. It was as low night when we were there with just a few tables occupied. We opted for the 30€ tasting menu which included wine and coffee. It was a five course tasting menu and all courses were really really tasty the food was served and prepared excellently. We felt that it... More
