“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2011

Dining at Trotters is always a wonderful experience. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food. Our favorite is always one of the rotisserie chicken dishes, but we have been known to try their steaks and seafood also. Never have had a disappointing experience.

“Overrated / Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2011

If you like to spend lots of money of very disappointing food while showing off to friends or business people in a beautiful atmosphere, then this is your place.

After reading all the reviews in TripAdvisor, we decided to go and were very much looking forward to it. When we arrived, we were very impressed with the atmosphere of the place. Beautiful indoor and outdoor seating. The gardens were gorgeous.
It was evening and a cool breeze carressed our skin.

Then came the waiters and the menu. Once we found a flashlight with which to see our menus, we were able to order. The lighting in the outdoor dining area doesnt exist...so bring a flashlight.

The menu was very expensive, the wines overpriced. we were expecting a gastronomic event, after reading all the reviews. I will get to the point.....this food was very mediocre, very disappointing, nothing special and expensive for what you get.

There are better restaurants in Merida.

“We Loved this Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2011

We had only one dinner in Merida and we were glad we chose Trotters. It is a vibrant, sophisticated dining venue with great people watching and I did not mention the food or service yet--which was excellent. If you have only one night in Merida, dine here.

“Don't use a credit card!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2011

As frequent visitors to Merida, my husband and I are fond of the different Trotter restaurants. We have always enjoyed the ambience, great food and service of these fine establishments. However, our recent visit to Trotters was the exception. First of all, the service at lunch was very rushed. We had barely had a sip of wine before our salads arrived and a few minutes later came the main course.

But the biggest surprise came when we received a phone call from our credit card company informing us that someone in Merida had gone on a spending spree within thrity minutes of our lunch at Trotters. Our number had been stolen.

We called Trotters to tell them about the stolen credit card number at the manager assured us that he took this seriously and we hope he did.
