Amazing atmosphere, excellent music, very good service, the food was very good but ....it is very expensive. It is indeed a tourist trap due to the amazing decoration and lighting of the place that makes it unique.

We had dinner early one evening and had to wait for the kitchen to open, but the server seated us and served drinks. He was happy to take our order and he was helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the soft shelled crab, which I was told was farmed on the Yucatan coast....it was delicious served with garlic mashed potatoes and arugula. My husband had the special of the day which was rib eye and it was perfectly cooked and tender. That night we were served banana chips rather than plantain chips, with a very mild and sweet salsa. The cost was about $65 including a tip, 2 glasses of wine and a margarita. We rally enjoyed our meal.

Convenient location near the center of Merida, nice atmosphere (during certain hours you can eat outside on the garden patio out back), very friendly wait staff. Food was a little pricey, but delicious. The plantain chips were excellent. The guacamole is made fresh at your table. Good sized portions. A decent dining experience overall!

We were very disappointed by Pancho's. The food was very mediocre, and some of the most expensive we had eaten in Merida. The service was, however, very pleasant, and the restaurant is in a charming garden. Maybe it's best to just go there for drinks. We noted that only tourists were around us - presumably the locals know better.
