Very good steaks served on a very comfortable air conditioned area. A little bit poshy ambience. Wealthy Miridians attending here. Tourists with T.shirts are seen as intruders to this high class site. Avoid the smoking area / "terrace". It is closed, with air conditioned and smelly.

It is the second time I visit this perfect place to taste a good, fine steak in Merida City. But this time I was amazed when a local friend suggested roasted tuna fish and a whole grilled octopus. Don't miss them, both dishes are exquisite. Obviously we finished our meal with a vaciado steak, perfectly medium cooked. All in all... More

This restaurant has an elegant modern setting with attentive wait staff and classic steak menu with many other options including seafood for my pescatarian friend. I would also recommend the duck salad which is superb. In the summer months there is even a satellite La Recova at the beach to satisfy all the vacationing city folk.

An impressive cava (cellar) at the reception welcomes you and gives you a glimpse of what's about to come. Awesome Jugo de Carne paired with an humita empanada are more than enough to leave room for fantastic steaks. Great choice, worth repeating it!

Very good classy restaurant. Fish, meat choices very good wine collection. Little bar on the side that you can enjoy a drink with great people. Service was good and quality of the food was top.

Food is not bad and it's popular. Drinks are good and strong. Probably can't blame the restaurant but the waiter took a 35 peso tip to mean 80 on 320 peso bill added to CC. Watch your change here and around. Second time this week people couldn't add

We were 8 people. The food was abundant and top quality. The service was excellent. We ha a combination of seafood and meats which were of the best quality. The price is high but is worth it.

This is one of several restaurants located in Santa Lucia Park, in Merida's historic district. We went to Santa Lucia with the intention of eating at Apoala. We saw the sign for Apoala and thought that's what we had chosen. But we hadn't. The restaurants are all contiguous to each other with no discernible border or barrier between them. And,... More
