A lovely setting and great service but I think we must have visited on the chef's night off. The menu is thoughtful and interesting but it seemed as though whoever was in charge of the kitchen that night had not bothered to taste the food. The salmon served was raw too which is a basic (potentialyy dangerous) mistake - too... More

I have lived in Southern Spain for 12 years and have to say that dinner at Rex Numitor was the best restaurant meal I have had in that time. The food was superb, the wine list extensive and the service attentive and friendly. As a main course I had a dish of lamb sweetbreads that had won first prize at... More

we stayed at the parador in merida for 2 nights.and ate in on our first night. The food was OK but not special. On night 2 we visited Rex numitor. We shared a starter which would have been too big for 1 person - it was very good. I had venison and my wife had hake for our main courses... More

We had a meal here in June. It was excellent. We went for 2 x 25 euro menu and it did not disappoint. The food was well presented and very tasty. Our daughter had pasta and she loved it. The wine which was included in the set price, I am still talking about it. It from the extremadora region and... More

It was great to find typical Spanish dishes done with some modern twists and all food was very refined. Great service.

We were staying in the adjoined Aparthotel and decided to try this restaurant since we had just arrived & starving. Of course we had also consulted TripAdvisor's reviews. We were not disappointed. The waitress was very nice. She had helped us with hotel check-in since she speaks English. We had complimentary gaspacho which was good (our first experience). The black... More

Brilliant, brilliant food. Very nice restaurant, great selection of red wines, very professional and nice staff who understand what's required depending on the guest, but above all else, amazing food. And in a city where to be honest it wasn't expected. Merida is amazing, but the hotels and, so I thought restaurants, aren't of very high standards. Well Rex Numitor... More

After so many mediocre meals in Spain, this was a big surprise, great service from the one unflustered and very professional waitress with a full room, great wine list, clever starters and one of the best lamb dishes I have ever eaten. No surprise to find the waitress and the chef were not Spanish.

Four of us were staying in the attached aparthotel, Capitolina, and we booked for a birthday dinner on our second night. The restaurant had been very busy with a baptism party at lunchtime, with hundreds of screaming kids rushing around inside and out, and the remnants were still there at 8:30 pm when we were seated, thankfully in the main...

This restaurant was a nice surprise, very well situated, quiet, lovely decor and excellent Spanish cuisine. The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere very relaxing. Situated between the main square and the river, so within walking distance from the centre. The lunch was beautifully presented and served. The staff very professional and the food of the highest quality.
