This restaurant has a large nicely-decorated outdoor area at the back. I had the lime soup which was utterly delicious. But the chimchangas were as good as anyone had eaten in Mexico (that's not to say there aren't better - but these were very good. Probably should have tried to order more of these to compare). This doesn't have the... More

Overall popular with tourists but geared towards extracting money for average food. Lovely setting. Good for a drink though overpriced. I would avoid unless no other options.

Since our last visit the menu is only one page. Had trouble finding something to eat. Drinks were not as good either. I won't be back. It used to be a great place to eat and good big menue. Not any more.

As has been mentioned in many reviews, this restaurant has the perfect setting. Great surroundings and a very appealing patio area. That's what drew us to Panchos 10 years ago and we have returned many times. Last night we met friends from Canada and decided to return to where we first met. We are seated in the "Happy Hour" chairs... More

Went for dinner but did not find anything from the menu. So we just had drinks. The place looked like it was made for american tourists. It was also very expensive.

First night in Merida our taxi driver dropped us outside & recommended it. We couldn't have been happier the setting was really goregous a big garden with different levels. We opted for various "small plates" 3 for 240 paseos so we ordered 6 between 2 of us - they were very generous portions, I think 3 would have sufficed. The... More

This is a lovely place. Love the inside art. Revolutionary. Frida Kahlo and more. No more live music! Need to update the listing. Beautiful bar patio. Few people here. Will go again to see.

Pancho's has lovely outdoor terrace seating in the heart of centro. The margaritas were good but the food was poor- stale tortilla chips, bland and questionably sanitarily prepared guacamole, overdressed salad, and both mains we had were terrible.

Just returned from a fabulous dinner at Pancho´s. Small plates are good for one person who´s not too hungry and are 90 Pesos. The Main courses are a bit more substantial, and probably better for someone who is a bit more hungry. (Really big eaters might be better to have a small plate and a main course) My husband and...

We came here as our first meal in Merida to get acquainted with our surroundings. Yeah it's a little expensive, maybe even a little touristy, but overall we enjoyed the food and our waiter was awesome. Bilingual, super friendly and he provided us with a bunch of places to check out, and even a few places to stay away from... More
