We stopped by Panchos late afternoon and met Ricardo. He spoke English and was very personable. He took our reservation and we came back that evening. The restaurant is beautifully appointed with great views from the garden patio. Ricardo made some suggestions on the menu which we took him up on. My wife had the Angus steak and I had... More

This is a favorite of my friends who have lived in Merida for 4 years. They love the more traditional Mexican food. Marguerita was OK. The place is popular with local families so there may be a lot of children!

We sat outdoors for dinner. You had a great view of the cathedral. Excellent Mexican food and great cocktails. Also a good wine selection including some decent Mexican wines. Treat yourself to a Mayan coffee, it's quite a show.

Dropped in for a margarita and guacamole and to check out the menu. The margaritas were excellent, on the rocks which we prefer, good balance of citrus aand a very generous pour of tequila, go with the house tequila, very good. The guacamole was good, too many extras, we like it best with lots of avacado and less onions, tomato... More

The ambiance and service was more fancy than some other restaurants. The prices were higher than you can pay in Merida, which I think is because the restaurant is more for tourists than for locals. I would go back again.

We found out about this place by walking in downtown. It is pretty close from Plaza Grande (one block away I think). The food was so so, but their staff was incredible. They really made us feel like home. Their oudtoor location is great!

A shame we didn't go there sooner! From the street it looks like a normal restaurant, once inside it has a great atmosphere and an amazing garden! Very beautifully done, nice corners to give you privacy, especially when you have a romantic dinner. The food was amazing, English speaking staff. In short, a must when in Merida!

It looked a bit rough, but it was open and we were thirsty. It was about 4:30 in the afternoon, not much was open and we needed to sit. We only had margaritas, but they were great! When we looked at the cocktail menu there were no frozen margaritas,just on the rocks, so not recognizing any of the brands of... More

We went early for drinks and an appetizer. The drinks were quite good, and the appetizer was pretty creative. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We would have stayed longer and had dinner, but the prices were much higher than at many other restaurants in the area. (That's the only reason I didn't give Pancho's 5 stars.) We realized... More
