Are in open roof area, beautiful atmosphere, nice food, great vegetarian and meat choices. Had stuffed eggplant and chille relleno (stuffed with cheese and tofu!) both were delicious, as was crepes with dulce de leche for dessert. I would return.

I ate here twice. They seem to have their act together so I was disappointed that the tuna was over cooked and the most expensive steak on the menu was over cooked. I tried eggplant, with an orange vegetable that was tasteless. The sauce on the eggplant, I enjoyed a lot, but since it was flavorless too, the overall dish... More

The restaurant is quite large, but it still manages to feel cozy thanks to the thoughtful decoration and the live music. The service was excellent and the food was authentic and delicious. It offers several typical yucatecan dishes, but I was dying for the enchiladas de pollo mole and I did not regret my choice.

Great vegetarian selection. Coming to Mérida I knew it may be challenging to find vegetarian cuisine but Amaro is no disappointment. The menu is a great selection for everyone vegetarian and non-vegetarian and kids too. The restaurant is beautiful They have a stage to have live music in the evening. One of my favorite place to eat this far on... More

We had the cream of vegetable soup and it was excellent. The chaya crepes were good, chaya stuffing could have used a little more flavor. The fish with almonds was very plain and was served with salad which had no dressing. The avocado and shrimp salad was excellent. Atmosphere is excellent. We were over served - too many waiters looked... More

This is our second visit to Merida and we keep going back to Amaro. The food and drinks are great and the atmosphere is even better. We love sitting under the trees in the outdoor patio of this old casa listening to a guitarist play live. All the food and drinks are exceptional but for an unusual non alcoholic drink... More

We went to Amaro based on a reccomendation from the local business people we were working with. The location is an outdoor courtyard that is well protected from the street, making it seem much more private than it really is. The menu has a local theme but many of the dishes are fused with Italian cuisine. The Avocado Pizza is... More

Pleasant courtyard setting and nice cocktails (mojitos and margaritas) the main pluses. In terms of food, my other half enjoyed her stuffed fish and the crisp bread at the start was nice. My enchilada with salsa verde main was just ok though (maybe we were spoiled in mexico city over the last week, where we had some excellent local food)... More

Absolutely beautiful little restaurant in a brightly lit courtyard so the ambiance is excellent. Had the salmon pizza which was also very good and there were many other things on the menu from the Yucatan and other places in Mexico. Very attentive staff that are willing to give an opinion on what to eat. They also don't crowd you every... More

Set in a hacienda-like courtyard, with art gallery paintings on the surrounding walls, Amaro was an enjoyable setting. Some of the choices are unusual/eclectic for Merida. I think they do best with their vegetarian specialties which are tasty, and well prepared. I had an excellent eggplant with rice dish which was fabulous. They do some nice recipes with Chaya (sometimes... More
