“PIZZA for Lunch!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

After a long morning and early afternoon shopping in the old Mercado on a very warm day, Amaro's was just a short walk away off the main Centro square in Merida. Though outdoors, it always seems to be nice and cool in their beautiful courtyard. My friend and I started with an order of guacamole and finished it off by splitting their delicious thin crust pizza. Have eaten here many times, and have yet to be disappointed in anyway. Ambiance, service, food....5 stars!

“Fine”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The restaurant has a nice setup on a pretty courtyard, but there was also some weird artwork on the walls that didn't exactly add the the ambiance. I was annoyed that, without asking, the waiter went ahead and handed me an English menu, especially because it had such weird translations that I needed to request a Spanish menu so I could understand what I was ordering. The waiter was nice when it came to answering questions about items, but also forgot little things like his offer to check on the vintage of the bottle of wine we ordered. The empanadas were fine but not spectacular. I found the chaya crepes interesting, and not untasty, but also not worth getting again. My husband enjoyed his cochinita pibil. I wouldn't be opposed to eating there again, but I wouldn't be particularly excited about it either.

“good for vegetarians”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Nice meal here - quite a bit of choice and lovely live music. Pleasant food at a reasonable price. Whole page of vegetarian options too which was great for my boyfriend and I but plenty for meat eaters too it seemed.

“Vegetarian options in pleasant setting”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I ate here a couple of times while in Merida, since finding restaurants with a good choice of non-meat options otherwise can be challenging. Amaro has a good range of options for both meat eaters and vegetarians, and the service is good and unobtrusive. The food is better than average, but Tripadvisor doesn't offer that option. A singer/guitar player entertained diners at night, while lunch in the outdoor courtyard is leisurely and quiet.

“Well Worth It. An Enjoyable Afternoon. Amazingly Accomodating.”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We showed up late afternoon. We were the only patrons. The service was very attentive but not overbearing. Our waiter had a good sense of humor. We all shook hands on our departure. The food was quite good. The place has a nice feel.
