This was one of our best meals in Merida. We ate here for lunch after a visit to the Mundo Maya museum. This place is about a block or two behind the museum and convention center.A modern and well-executed take on Yucatecan cuisine. Great food, good service. Decent atmosphere. Delicious sauces. Recommended if you are anywhere near the northern part of town.

Reviewed By Strangemagick

The best shrimp mole I’ve ever had preceded by freshly made crispy tortillas and a generous helping of guacamole made fresh and perfect. Rhonam was our waiter both evenings and did a magnificent job. Ask for him. This is a jewel of a little courtyard restaurant. Casual and relaxed. Perfect.

La Rueda

Reviewed By Nubinskis

Hands down this is the best steakhouse in Merida! Excelent service, excellent food! Arrive early to avoid waiting in line, especially for Sunday lunch! Not only are the steaks great and cooked to perfection, the Kobe burger served only in the evenings, just melts in your mouth! The gigantic salads, which can be shared, are equally delicious! Of all the fantastic restaurants in Merida, and there are so many, this is our favorite!

We went here for my partner’s birthday after reading other people’s great reviews. We were hugely disappointed, the service was slow and staff generally inattentive, a lot of the menu wasn’t available and when the food came is ass distinctly average and undercooked. I’m not sure whether they were just having a bad night, but I definitely wouldn’t chance it again.

We’ve eaten here twice during our visit, based on the recommendation of a top chef in Mexico. It is definitely as good as the recommendation. Service was excellent. On Thursday evenings Starting at 21:00 there is live music in the adjacent plaza. Free dinner show with lots of local audience members.The food is exceptional. Very flavorful, unique fusion of ingredients, not heavy. The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection, excellent octopus and sea bass. Excellent ceviche. Wonderful soups.I would suggest that two people each order an appetizer and share them, and then order a single main to share. There would be plenty to eat.There’s a nice wine selection. The desserts we each had were very good but also very sweet. I think that is for some reason indicative of hot climates.After dinner walk around and check out all of the adjacent cafés and shops.

El Barrio comfort food

We are a concept of comfort food, where we serve breakfast & brunch with the worry of preserving the traditional flavors, using products of season and adapting them to the gastronomic trends of nowadays.

Four of us walked over for breakfast from our Airbnb. We had a great, fresh, and creative breakfast. I had a freshly made horchata which was excellent. Each of us had something different and we were all very satisfied.We were greeted by a friendly waiter who took excellent care of us even though the place gets quite busy. Go before 10:30AM or it might be full. This is not a fast food joint. The food is all made fresh and made to order so it takes a while. Be patient and you will be rewarded. I use Tripadvisor a lot and read through all the reviews, even the negative ones to get a sense of a place. There were only 4 one and two star ratings. When I read them, I knew they were either competitors or just people that can't be pleased under any circumstances. The place is a small neighborhood restaurant serving well-prepared, fresh food. It gets busy. When it gets busy, service slows down like it does in every other restaurant. Their hours are available on Tripadvisor. Don't expect them to be open before or after hours. And in Mexico, if you want water you are better off buying a bottle con gas or sin gas. It will be cool, refreshing, inexpensive, and it is available everywhere.

The food here is an upscale experience of comida tipica. As well as all of the local dishes like poc chuc and pollo pibl, there are their own creations/variations like the carne ahumada de Teya. The atmosphere is lovely and this has been the haunt of many celebrities. And best of all at the end of the day you are walking out with a reasonable bill. Two people can eat very well for under $40.Thanks for your visit and comments! We make sure that our service and food remains great every day so you can enjoy the true flavor of Yucatecan cuisine.Hope to see you soon!

Went here because of it’s high rating on TripAdvisor. And wow the food was great, the restaurant is connected the owner his house and said we could wait on his couch till a table opens up. It was worth the wait! For under 10 bucks we not only had a great meal, but we were also stuffed! Muchas gracias

Yucatecan taco restaurant. #TACOYUCA We serve the best traditional dishes from the rich cuisine from Yucatan Mexico. We offer a flavor experience and a friendly enviroment. A must when visiting Merida.

Reviewed By Matteo R

It's not bad, but expected way more from number one in merida, several places were way better. Not even pico de gallo at the tableThanks for your visit Matteo. Great to read you realized that is good and affordable, thats actually our approach.We especialized in yucatecan tacos and thats why we don't offer pico de gallo at the table. Instead we offer chiltomate, red onion and habanero (ingredients from our region).Anyway you can always ask the waiter or the taquero to serve you some pico de gallo. You might be discovering new great flavour mix .Come back soon!
