My husband and I ate here in March of this year. I got very sick the night of the meal, and this lasted for the next 3 days. We went back to the restaurant, but were summarily dismissed. I contacted the company after returning home,...More

I like it, there wasn't that many people since we arrived pretty early, seems like best time to go is after 8pm. Food was really good, we ordered four different plates and they were really tasty. Drinks were also good, nice view to take pictures....More

We have been to Pancho's a couple of times in previous visits, but we were very disappointed this time. The menu was very limited, the ambience not as 'magical', and the overall experience was somewhat negative. My wife had the Sea Bass, and did not...More

We went with locals who said the place was touristy and had dropped in quality. However, we enjoyed the evening, food was good as was the service. Like a lot of places in Merida, not much curb appeal, but once inside very nice decor.

Thought we'd try it out. The food, while not terrible, was nothing better than you could get anywhere in the States. Burger was mediocre. Would be a good place when you're longing for expensive food from home.

The Food is great. Try the flaming coffee. The staff is great too. We always go to Pancho's when we are in Merida.

First of all, some of the experiences below are very inaccurate and I wonder if there were communication issues. I am definitely not fluent and heard no other problems from anyone else we met there. For happy hour special-you must sit at bar! Also, we...More

Not very good food and very touristy. Way too many great smaller resturants within easy walking distance of the main square. If your looking for the Tourist experience then it's ok..just Ok.
