“Sweet Courtyard dining”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

This is a lovely little refuge from Merida's busy streets. Dining in the lovely little courtyard garden was very pleasant and the food was quite good. We liked the Italian food offerings better than the Greek, especially the Calzone and Pizza from the brick oven. The margaritas are the best we had in Merida. The owners are delightful and the service is friendly and very efficient.

“A Refreshing Change”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

By day #4, we needed a break from typical Yucatan meals, and Rescoldos was just about perfect.

The owners are super-friendly, and, Oscar, our waiter on both nights (we had to go back after the first time), seemed to truly enjoy being there.

And the pasta specials of the day and the salads were just what we needed.

It is small, but the outdoor seating with a fountain is refreshing.
As a bonus, theses guys also make a heck of a Margarita.

“Amazing Value and flavor”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

After a day trip to Uxmal, hitting a few art galleries, this was the perfect dinner. The pizzas were amazing! The three of us each had a salad, we split two pizzas, each had some incredible gellato, and of course had Margaritas. When in Merida - do not miss this one!

“Best restaurant in Mexico!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Ive been to many mexican restaurants with a lot of cuisines from all over the World, but rescoldo was the best place i ever been..
Even though the restaurant is quite affordable it feels like you are getting service and food for hundreds of dollars.. Without beeing to cocky..
From the outside the place doesnt look much, but a spot in the courtyard next to the woodfired pizza oven will do it for most romantic minded guest.. Maybe a candlelight on the table would make rescoldo the most romantic spot in latin America..
Nice caring service without beeing too much and the best pizza ive had in mx.
The spinach-artiscok dip is highly recommended! Hope to get the option to get back to this gem in merida again someday!
