“Just stayed in the bar of the place - relaxing and terrific value for money!”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

The downstairs bar (don't hestitate do go down the steep staircase!) of the La Abadia Restaurant in Merida convinces with nice ambiente including music, bar food and drinks, the cocktails are really good value for money. Mind you they don't know their Caipirinhas, the drink I got had fruit juice in it, so nowhere near a Caipirinha, but the Margaritas and Mojitos are very good. Also the perfect place for an aperitif before dinner. You can apparently also smoke water pipes here.

I went here once and thought the food and service was wonderful.
Later, I returned alone and again with my novia.
This place is highly recommended.

“Irish couple in Merida Christmas 2007”
Reviewed May 26, 2008

We ate at this restaurant a number of times in December 2007. We also used their fantastic tour agency a number of times to do tours and also to do the paragliding. We could not recommend them highly enough. The food was great and the couple running the tours even managed to get us tickets for the Teleferrico on the busiest week of the year. They were great and Merida is incredible.
