Yakunah Restaurant Progreso

We have had several meals at the Yakunah Hotel in Progreso. This restaurant is located on the east side of Progreso past the end of the Malecon on Calle 21 just past the Montessori School and is one block from the beach. Basically you drive east on Calle 21 and go until the road changes […]

Gran Jirafas Merida Yucatan Restaurant

We have now stopped to eat at Gran Jirafas in Merida two different times and enjoyed dinners both times. This restaurant is located just off the Paseo de Montejo in Merida north of the new underpass on the right side of the road. Very friendly and accommodating staff and if you need them to, several […]

Cafe Peon Contreras

On Saturday, October 29 we went to Merida to see the Dia de los Muertos festivities. The restaurant Lyn chose was located right off Calle 60 where the procession walked by in the Corazon de Merida (Heart of Merida). Cafe Peon Contreras is one of the restaurants where on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights the […]

Eladio’s Restaurante & Bar

Feature Picture: Sopa de Lima, which was really really good! Evan & I shared this soup and it was quite a meal. I believe you have to accept this establishment as it is: a busy tourist location which is fabulous for people watching, having some beverages, and enjoying their botanas. Eladio’s has to be one […]

Los Compadres Tacos – Comida Mexicana

Well, we had to eat at the restaurant claiming to have ‘Comida Mexicana’ (Mexican Food!) and were pleasantly surprised! This restaurant has specific hours and is not open for lunch ever. The menu has a wide variety of items, however the items we were there for was the tacos. They have an entire page of […]

Restaurante El Gallito

The Restaurante El Gallito is located just a couple of blocks away from the malecon in Progreso. Lyn & I first discovered it one day when wandering around the town waiting for the boys to finish school and we were starving. We had never before experienced a “Cocina Economica” but this one looked pretty clean […]


On Friday night we went out for a nice family dinner to Panchos in centro Merida. As we were walking to Panchos we saw the thunderstorm coming so when we got to Panchos and they tried to sit us outside, which is normally the best seats in the house, we asked if we could please […]

Chaya Maya – authentic Yucatan

For a late lunch we ate at Chaya Maya, which is a great peek at the Yucateo food offered in Merida. This place is very busy it seems at any time of the day. I started with the Sopa de Lima, which was a great broth with crispy tortilla’s and it was not an over […]

Cubaro – Valentines day

We were fortunate enough to have recommended to us by both Ellyne and Arlette the restaurant situated on the traffic cirlce featuring the Monument to the Flag. On Valentines day, without a reservation we choose Cubaro for our dining. Something that we are still getting used to is the fact that people do not eat […]
