Amaro was my wife's and my favorite restaurant during our eleven days in Yucatan, several of them in Merida. To start with, the photo here on Tripadvisor doesn't do full justice to the very pleasant outdoor courtyard in which the restaurant is situated - so...More

Amaro is beautiful. I just wish the service and food were equally as beautiful. I was wandering 59th and ready for a break. The menu offered a garden 🍕 pizza that looked very interesting. I ordered it and requested very little mozzarella cheese. The restaurant...More

Very nice decor and excellent food at a good price. Excellent service, doesn't feel like tourist trap, although location may suggest it.

Enjoyed cochinita pibil and chicken fajitas. Chocolate mousse dessert was quite good. The milieu is most pleasant with both wall and ceiling fans that were appreciated on a warm evening. The singer/guitarist was a nice bonus.

Amaro is consistently good. It's setting and service are both great and the food never disappoints. It is a good value too.

I always like to try the Yucatecan cuisine when in Merida. Unequivocally Amaro has the best cochinita pibil that I've eaten. Now I've only spent 7.5 weeks in Merida over the last year but I've eaten a lot of cochinita in that time. The flavor...More

We stopped in for lunch just because it happened to be along our walking path, but we were very pleased with the food and service here. We all found something delicious to eat. My son hasn't stopped talking about the chicken in his pasta dish!...More

Yes, there was a fab guitar / singer on a little stage. It was not 'traditional' Trouva music when we were there. Hope that helps!
