Altair
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 17, 2008

Overlooking the Calatrava-designed Lusitania Bridge just outside Merida city centre, the entrance to Altair is next to a somewhat dingy-looking Italian diner. Down the flight of stairs and you are transported to a top-notch modern restaurant that wasn't remotely phased by us being in shorts and short-sleeved shirts (we were the most underdressed people there though).

Around eight choices for each of three courses, or a degustacion menu for 68 euros which we would have had if it weren't lunchtime with a plane to catch that afternoon. Prices look high (about 25-30 euros for main courses) not helped a poor UK£ exchange rate, but you get plenty of extras before, between courses and after, and the quality is excellent throughout.

We suspect it's well-used by corporates entertaining clients, and romantics seeking somewhere for a quiet two-some might not like its light, minimalist lines but we couldn't really fault it.
