Strangely enough, it is not easy to find good seafood in Merida. However, restaurant Amaro was a good experience. I ordered the Coconut Crusted Shrimp (7 large shrimp ) sereved with freshly mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. My partner ordered the Marinated Shrimp (also a large serving). Both were delicious and nicely presented. After the appetizer of guacamole and chips plus the entrees, we were too full to order dessert, but the choices sounded wonderful, especially the crepes.
Service was friendly and not overly attentive. We never felt rushed. As this restaurant also caters to very larg tourist groups, it is wise to get there early ( around 6:30 or 7 pm). The guitar entertainment, which was quite good, starts at 8pm. and that is when the groups start to arrive.
Placing your food order and eating before 8pm is advised.
The outdoor courtyard setting is nice for fine dining and a romantic setting. After 8pm it gets a bit noisy with 40 to 50 people decending on the place.
I'm sure we will be back for more seafood when next we are in Merida.
