Very enjoyable dinner and drinks. Enjoyed the sangria and snacks as well as the ceviche. Definitely was not the only non-local in the place but enjoyable none the less. Great six piece band played the entire time.

We are two tall & blond Germans and were stared upon when we entered the place, because there were NO other tourists! The food & drinks as well as the service were great. But the fun atmosphere made it even more awesome :)

I have been living in Merida for some time and la Negrita is my all favourite place here. The only bad side is that it is usually packed of people and hard to find a table if you are many. Still I love coming here...More
