“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

This is a lovely place. Wonderful setting in an open air courtyard, great cocktails and lovely food. Live music on some nights and even an art exhibition around the edge of the courtyard. Good mix of Mexican and international food. Lovely!

“Good for vegetarians :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Nice atmosphere in the lovely patio and some vegetarian food on offer….a nice change should you ever get tired of fish and meat :) Service and food were good! The restaurant is easy to find and is located in the city centre.

“Nice atmosphere, great food, slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We went on a Saturday night, so many people and few waiters serving them. However the atmosphere was very appealing. The restaurant is set in an old colonial house with most of the seating in a courtyard under mature trees. There was a guitar singer. Lots of choices for vegetarians-- I had Chaya crepes. My husband had a very excellently prepared salmón. Kids had avocado pizza. The only complaint besides the service was the fact that there were smokers nearby-- the kids could smell while we were eating.

“Best place in town for vegetarians”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Amaro has very good food, friendly service and a nice courtyard atmosphere. For vegetarians and vegans, it is definitely the best place in town. Vegetarian fajitas in particular are quite good! Be sure to ask for some picante on the side, their combination of habanero, olive oil, and lime juice is a great little extra! Pretty decent drinks as well, especially the chaya and tequila drink. There are definitely cheaper places around, but this is a solid restaurant and I definitely recommend it!

“Wonderful atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

We happened on Amaro one evening during our 4 night stay in Merida and so happy we wandered in. A guitarist was playing, it's a quiet dark courtyard with great atmosphere. The food/drinks were very good. We ordered a pizza, and it was much too big for the two of us. Service was excellent.
