Don't expect an elaborate dining experience here. It is a simple corner french bistro. That said, it is a simple corner french bistro with delicious food. Desserts are fantastic.

No wine/beer but the latter can be bought at the bar across the street.

Great place, particularly if you are in need of a break from Mayan cuisine.

This small gem continues to serve the best food in Merida. After six different gourmet meals over the past 2 weeks, my culinary bias has shifted from Yucatan to French. The breakfasts are superb and the French style lunches could not be better. The French onion soup reminds me of the best one can find in Paris, the melon with ham delicious, and the fish freshly caught from the Gulf. The chefs and servers are as professional as one can find in a five star establishment. Don't miss this little gem, the best Merida has to offer!!

Where can you get authentic French bistro food at these prices? Nowhere! I go here not because of the prices but for the fresh, varied and ever changing menu. We go here at least twice a week for lunch and breakfast is great too.

This cafe is still excellent. It is a favorite of my wife, myself and many friends. The lunch- salad, entree and at least one side is only $60 pesos. The daily menu is always changing. There are three entrees and various tarts and quiches- all delicious. Chef is always adding to the daily choices. The lasagne is the best in town.

Recently appetizers and homemade bread are new additions. I don't want to forget dessert. Johann is starting to make more desserts. He bakes a killer flour less chocolate cake. He also has desserts from Patrice's- mostly chocolates.

It is a cafe where you can go everyday! The small staff is very attentive as is the chef/owner. It feels like a French Bistro cafe.

It's the best lunch place in Merida.
