Yucatecan in Mérida

Inventive and delicious takes on traditional Yucatecan cuisine, a setting that would win design awards, and super-friendly and helpful staff make for a winning combination at this north Mérida (take a taxi) destination restaurant. The cebollas negras (blackened onions; M$150) might look unappealing but the taste soon dispels any doubts. And you can't go wrong with the meat and fish mains.

Its imaginative cocktails are a great start to a meal and the desserts a great way to finish.
