Admittedly it is Christmas Eve and everywhere in town was busy. However, even taking this into consideration, we had a terrible experience this evening. The service was exceptionally slow, despite not all the tables being filled. We were warned that the food would take half...More

The gentlemen serving us was nothing but accomodating and spoke well enough English to have a conversation, recommend foods and great atmosphere, big blue comfortable chairs to add to the atmosphere as well had live music! Food was delicious, left feel very full!

Very well located and not far from the cathedral. Unfriendly and slow service. We had only a drink: a limonade. Was OK but nothing good enough to be mentioned.

This is one of several restaurants in central Merida that have live music late in the evenings. It's a nice option to sit outside, relax over a drink and listen to fairly decent musicians and singers

Nice shady pavement side spot to watch the world go by. Simple menu for drinks or snacks but was disappointing food for dinner. No English spoken and noisy large screen TV can be a nuisance

Somewhat a nice setting; however our waiter got angry because we only ordered coffees; rude service; this is very rare on this city. The restrooms stink.

My husband and I ate here on a Saturday night. The setting is great and fun to watch people, but we were approached by at least 8 different people selling things or asking for money, which ruined our meal. Some of the people approached us...More
