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

The food is delicious, there are many options, and different kinds of food. I would recommend the crepas, I loved it. Prices are not so cheap, but totally worth it. Also you'll have to check which days and what time they have live music.

We had a lovely meal out here as a couple. The courtyard is inside but outside so it is romantic. They had live music playing the night we went which was a fantastic addition. Good food and service. A little expensive but then it is in a touristy area of Centro!
