Fodor's Review

A former henequen-producing site dating back to 1683, this beautiful hacienda just outside Mérida serves some of the best regional food around. It has also attracted big names including Vicente Fox (when he was president, he'd order the queso relleno to go) and Hillary Clinton. Most patrons are well-to-do Meridanos enjoying a leisurely lunch, so don't wear beach clothes—in fact, men wearing tank tops will be asked to change. Hacienda Teya is open from noon to 6 daily,

and a guitarist serenades diners between 2 and 5 on weekends. Start with sopa de lima, then move on to standout mains like poc chuc or cochinita pibil (both served with homemade tortillas). The restaurant has the Yucatán's largest wine selection, and desserts come with a complimentary digestif. After your meal stroll through the gardens where peacocks roam. If you want to spend the night, the hacienda has six handsome suites ($$), but you'll need to book ahead for long weekends and holidays.
