The food was low quality, small quantities and very overpriced!! DON'T GO THERE!!! You will regret it!!!! The service was very unfriendly and the price on the menu is without any taxes and service fee (>20%!!) !!!! They just want your money without any performance for their guests! It is really sad that something like this exists in this beautiful... More

Don't eat here! A waiter lurks by the door and encourages you in and you may be attracted by the english language menu. But it would be a mistake. The food is tasteless and badly cooked. The service was dreadful - the waiter spilled my wine and didn't bother to replace it - he then disappeared and left a young... More

I have to say that I did not expect much of this place as last time I was here it was really forgettable, (you can read my previous review) but I have been recently there again and I am always glad to re-review when it is to recognize that service, and specially the food quality have been improved. Try the... More

This is a restaurant located in an adjacent street near the wonderful Roman Theatre area in Mérida. It is O.K if you are visiting the area and you just want a quick meal because you have the option of a set menu and also of a quite big choice of tapas. Inside you have air conditioning (very important if you... More

Although a large sandwich board outside advertised Menu del Dia, once inside with drinks ordered they told us it was not available. We went to walk out and they changed their minds. We wished we had walked, the meal was awful, they charged us for everything they could get away with I had to argue with them that the water... More

Expensive tapas, tasteless beer and a feeling that customers get in the way. So many other places, so why bother???

The food is no good and not well prepared, unfortunately I had not checked any restaurants on the Web before and we just needed food quickly. We opted for the fixed menu and I had as first plate, bean soup, that had no taste at all. The second was chicken and it was very salty. I tried to change desert... More

Had we seen the comments on this restaurant on TripAdvisor, under a review of the unconnected(?) Hostal El Alfarero, we would not have visited it, but unfortunately we had not and we did! We are a family of two adults with two teenage daughters. I speak good Spanish, my husband some Spanish but my daughters little or none. We arrived... More
