Decent lunch

We received a warm welcome and we were seated in the front dining room which seemed a bit formal as it was lunchtime. We were brought a complimentary orange and olive oil salad.

A great restaurant in Mérida! The food is all sourced from the restaurants' own farm or from within 100km of its location! The complimentary Sephardic orange and olive oil salad is delicious and the owner, Manuel, is one of the friendliest people we met on our trip. He welcomes you to the restaurant like he is welcoming you to his... More

We really enjoyed our weekday lunch here. We were warmly greeted at the door by the friendly and chatty owner Manolo. (He playfully referred to me as the American Boy). The restaurant is situated in an old Roman house not far from the Roman Museo. The restaurant is divided into 3 parts: a colorful front dining room (it almost felt... More

We went on the off chance, but it was the weekend and we should've booked. The owner took pity on us and we sat on a comfortable sofa for half an hour in a corridor full of baskets of local produce from their kitchen garden - onions, tomatoes, kale, marrows, courgettes, aubergine - until a table became free. The restaurant... More

What a find! The restaurant is in an old house with roman and arabic remains. Beautiful dining room with great food at a reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere even though we were the only diners that evening !!! The young waiter was so friendly and at the end of our meal we were given a tour of the building. A must... More

Proper Spanish restaurant in lovely old house. Extremely friendly and attentive owners and staff serving up traditional and home-made food (and drink) in a quiet dining experience. Well worth a visit.

We visited this restaurant for the second time in two years, the welcome and the service so friendly and attentive. The dining room has a lovely feel to it. My wife was delighted by the down to earth straight from the garden approach to the menu, lovely fresh veg and salads, simply but properly prepared, we shared a fish stew... More

We stumbled into this delightful restaurant and were greeted by Manuel, the owner/host, who shared all kinds of fun stories about the restaurant which offers a lot of locally-grown veggies and fruits from his orchard and gardens and chicken and duck from his farm (he did say he can't kill them, himself, as they are all his pets.) The restaurant... More

We dropped by at lunch time and we had a very nice surprise because we were greeted by the owner, and he showed us around the place because it's a roman house! It's a family-run restaurant, with organic vegetables produced by themselves, they recycle everything. We had the menu and, even if I don't trust touristic menus, it was wonderful!!!... More

We went for lunch on a Trip Advisor recommendation and were not disappointed. After a tour of this interesting house we sat down to a very good lunch at a reasonable price. Fresh flavours and good variety for a set menu.
