Once the shining star of Merida's gastronomy, Alberto's Continental is these days visited by people who enjoy beautiful surroundings and good Lebanese food. The menu is vast, most of the food good, but the hummus is home-made and really delicious, the babaganash great, the cabbage rolls very nice, the Lebanese flatbread fresh, and most evenings there is gentle music piped throughout the patio. Open evenings only from 6pm and closed on Sundays, the owner, now 80, is a font of information about Merida, the people who once lived there and those who still do, the history of the Lebanese community in the Yucatan, and anything else you want to ask about. He tells a fascinating story and will keep you company if you go alone. If you go as a couple, he will be discreet and leave you to gaze into each other's eyes in one of the most beautiful old house courtyards in Merida.
