My wife and I were in Merida for 3 nights and ate here one night upon local recommendation. The courtyard in the back where we were seated is quaint and cozy. Mostly tourists that night.
The service was reasonably good, but we were dissatisfied with the food. I ordered the red snapper and my wife ordered the Arrachera steak. Her steak which we asked for medium was cooked to well done, and simply had no taste. My snapper was also super-bland and came with the famous mayonaisse-filled tomato mentioned by another reviewer. We had a tough time finishing due to lack of taste, which is truly unusual for us. "Terrible" might be too strong an adjective so I will give it 2 stars. But the food was really lacking flavor which tainted any other positive experience we could have had there.
