Notes: We recently met a friend here for drinks and a snack, on our way to dinner somewhere else. We were thrilled to see that this wonderful space has been renovated so beautifully and is being put to great use. As with all the best restaurants in Merida, you have your choice of indoor air conditioned seating, our outdoor seating. In this case, you can sit outside at tables that are in the park, with all the world going by. Or you can sit in the back, looking out over the garden and the beautiful building at the other side of the garden which houses the restrooms. The bar is a great place to hang out with friends, have a drink and talk or watch the game on one of the flat panel TVs. Or you can watch the chefs in the kitchen behind the bar. The food is similar to La Tratto on Paseo de Montejo... pasta, pizzas, salads, carpaccios and a steak or two thrown in for good measure. Bravo, Trotters! Thanks for opening this wonderful restaurant in the centro!
