Great little restaurant run by a couple from British Columbia, Canada. Wonderful courtyard setting with trees, candles and a pretty fountain. Food was delicious, especially pizza cooked outside in a wood-fired oven.

The pizza was best in Mexico! The couple who own it are delightful; he cooks the pizza, and she bakes the pastries. Small place but big taste.

I absolutely loved the setting and ambience of this restaurant, and would love to go back soon. I am a pizza snob having lived in Italy, and the margarita pizza wasn't the best choice as its simplicity only works with Italian ingredients that might be hard to come by (so mostly my own fault as I could have known), but excellent drinks and the beautiful courtyard made up for it.

We had dinner on a Wednesday night at Rescoldo's and came away stuffed/happy. The setting was very romantic with a beautiful outdoor courtyard. Service was excellent -- the friendly waiter spoke perfect English and the owners (a British Columbian woman and a Dutch man) came by to check in on each table. Most of all, the food was superb. We had a delicious spinach/artichoke dip, chilled Moroccan tomato-based soup, vegetarian Moussaka, and cheese-filled ravioli with pesto sauce. For dessert, we had the dessert trio sampler, which included a scoop of authentic gelato, tiramisu cheesecake, and two pieces of baklava. Our total bill was under $50 USD, an incredible steal when you consider that a comparable meal in the US would be at least twice as much.

This was our best meal in Merida. It's a fantastic option for vegetarians and anyone wanting something different from Mexican food. I believe the restaurant is only open Tuesday-Saturday - make sure you plan your dinners accordingly so that you can enjoy this great place!

A wonderful little spot within walking distance of nearly everything in el Centro. The hands-on chefs/owners and their staff make this place extra special. The food is very tasty and interesting. A simple review--I know, but if you are a nice person---go to this place!!!
