“Glacial service”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Three tables occupied and we had to practically go into the kitchen to get any service. Maybe this is their idea of relaxed dining. Food was average at best. Would not go there again.

“Dining Al Fresco!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

As a "thank you" dinner for my coworkers in Merida, I chose Portico del Peregrino Restaurant, and it was a delightful surprise. The staff accommodated 7 of us in the nice inner patio under the stars. The place was clean, the staff attentive and fast, and the food delightfully presented and tasted great! The appetizers---mushrooms and eggplant were plentiful and very good. Their wine selection is small and devoid of moscatos, but the white wine we had was excellent. None of us were disappointed with our choice of salmon, spaghetti, onion soup, shrimp salad, and dessert.
The restaurant is closed to the Central Plaza and a short walk from Santa Lucia's park where you can enjoy the Serenata dances/songs on a Thursday evening.
A great place for a candle light dinner or a group, festive dinner.

“Great Staff”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

There are many wonderful restaurants in Merida and I thing Portico del Peregrino is a great choice if you're looking for a quiet courtyard to enjoy a good meal. My friend and I both enjoyed dinner (ordered shrimp and empenadas). What made the meal with Roberto, our waiter. He was gracious without hovering and made our experience all the better.

“Outstanding staff and food. Highly recommend this non-tourist trap restaurant”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We stopped there just on a whim for dinner and am so glad we did. All of the staff were pleasant, entertaining and made good recommendations.

Prices were very reasonable and the food quality excellent. I can't say enough about how pleasant an experience dinner was. We will be back.

“Cocktails and dinner”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We went to Portico del Peregrino for dinner the last night we stayed in Merida and was very pleased with the experience.
They have great freshly made cocktails - we had a Pina Colada and a Margarita.
The food was also very well prepared and tasty.
We sat on the back porch.
We liked it so much we went back the next day for a cocktail while waiting for the bus to take us to San Cristobal.
