We loved it so much that we went back a second time. I had the mushroom ravioli and gnocchi and my husband had the risotto and a pasta with beef the second time. Every single dish was fantastic and the service is lovely as well.

Best meals we had in Merida. It was only a block from our rented house, so we walked by many times admiring it and seeing how busy it was. I had a grilled fish and my husband had risotto with celeriac and salmon. Both dishes...More
