“Thai and more in Merida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is a relatively new restaurant that we stumbled upon in Merida. Marcel, the owner and chef, is Swiss. However, he spent a good deal of time in Thailand and has authentic recipes. We had a tasty red curry and Thai soup for lunch. Marcel and Alma Rosa were extremely accommodating and gave us a tour of the place. We will definitely come back when we are next in Merida.

“Deliciously Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

We discovered this delightful spot right near our rental home. What a find! The coffee is delicious, the meals perfectly cooked and presented. Flavourful, filling and oh so tasty. The owners are wonderful. Alma Rosa serves food with quiet panache and her husband, the chef cooks with perfection.

“Superb Thai in the Yucatan (!) and everything else just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I have now had the Thai coconut prawn soup several times and "my goodness" but it is close to really authentic Thai! I'd have liked a little more spice, but chef said most people don't enjoy it, so I get it extra (just ask). The satay was very good and the home made peanut sauce so delicious both I and a friend (a world famous chef) ended up drinking the leftover sauce from the little serving pots! I have also tried the spinach quiche (really good, with crumbly pastry) and the hand and mushroom quiche (off the menu by midday as they run out!), the scrumptious home-made red-wine based Bolognese sauce, the apple cake (so similar to that I had in Scandinavia and just amazing) and so on. I live a few doors down and... no longer need to cook! EVER. :-) Not to mention the Italian style espresso - best in town. PLEASE NOTE, THEY DO NOT HAVE AN ALCOHOL LICENCE YET
