Fodor's Review

This classic Yucatecan eatery has been a favorite with locals since the 1960s, when the owners opened their first restaurant in nearby Ticul. The Mérida branch—with its high colonial ceilings and elegant atmosphere—has been here since 1972 and many say, it's still the best place to eat in town. The combinado yucateco (Yucatecan combination plate) is a great way to try different dishes: cochinita pibil, longaniza asada (grilled pork sausages), escabeche

de Valladolid (turkey with chiles, onions, and seasonings in an acidic sauce), and poc-chuc (slices of pork marinated in sour-orange sauce and spices). In fact, they invented some dishes that have become Yucatecan classics, including the poc-chuc and the cheese soup, which is also spectacular. A live trio performs daily from 2–5 pm.
