The place is dirty, low maintenance, uncomfortable, noisy. The food is not good, the apetizers are not that bad, the burgers are ok, flatbreads average. The entrees are the ones that made us rate this restaurant as poor... the chicken with "chaya" was dry, the veal was ok and the rissoto as side dish is good, tuna and curry both... More

This place has everything we love the most of Merida. Healthy food, family character, superior quality, nice atmosphere, friendly service, end everything @ more than reasonable prices. Mi wife said "it's the best place for dinner I've known" and you can bet she knows. Congratulations to the owners!

One of my new favorite restaurants in Merida. It isn't new, but I had never been until three months ago...I've been back twice since! Nice ambiance, attentive service, daily specials, fresh salads, excellent pastas and flatbreads. I enjoyed my first steak there last night...perfectly cooked as ordered. I am already looking forward to returning!!

Acqua is popular with locals as the title of this review suggests. It is perfectly fine, but nothing comes to mind that would want to make me go back. Service is typically Merida-average, with waiters appearing at the table, plates in hand and asking 'el pollo?' which is one of my pet peeves, them not knowing who ordered what. Food... More

Sunday afternoon dinner at Acqua with friends was a treat. Two well prepared Angus steaks for the men, one with fries and caramelized onions, the other with grilled asparagus and roasted potatoes, were perfect. The broiled salmon with Indian rice, and a meaty lasagna completed the dinner order. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Dessert was a shared, large "brownie" with ice... More

We have been told about this restaurant for years by some of our friends. We have been there twice now and enjoyed both trips. The first time was for dinner and it was a very good meal and very good service. The second time we just went for desserts and they were delicious! Not your normal tourist place but that... More

We have always loved Acqua for the food and ambience. Their makeover last year improved the physical aspects of the restaurant. A bit quieter for conversation but kept the cozy vibe it has always had. The food is still good, but quite a different experience. We always considered this "fine dining", at least for Merida. They had exceptionally flavorful and... More

Friday night we went to Acqua Bistro. We haven't been for many months and they have changed somewhat their theme from French Fine Dining to Casual Bistro. First off the food has lost nothing in this transition everything we ordered was superb. The service top notch and we left there full and happy. You can still order from the chalk... More

After a recent remodel Acqua continues to provide a top quality dining experience. The decor is modern and warm with contemporary touches. The bar is moved to the back and the dining space is increased. There are a number of architectural touches which reduce the noise level, including a baffled ceiling. The menu has also been revitalized and it has... More

The food is Absolutly delicious and very fresh. The menu is quite extensive compared to other restaurants in Merida. The salads are creative and wake up the taste buds with the combination of flavors. I really liked the idea that you could bring your own wine,there is a charge for cooling and opening but so worth it. Tired of being... More
