I think this horrible restaurant has closed. If not, be prepared for horrible food, bad service and ridiculous prices. We were so disappointed. This was the first and only restaurant that disappointed us in Merida.

I have been to La Choperia many times, even the first month they opened at a Brazilian Restaurant. More recently I met the new chef that informed me it had closed and then re-opened under an owner from outside Mexico City and was no longer serving that type of food. I returned a month or so later and the chef... More

Will be back in Merida Thursday and see for myself. Nice restaurant close to yhe Villa Tievoli. A well appointed bar and a diverse menu. Good for late night dinners and gatherings.

Great people watch...good beer, nice place. Just the beer prices a little high with so many other better deals. A beer is a beer HA

a group hang out, we never go there just the two of us. The beer is good, and always icey cold. They don't offer any free botanas with the beer, and the botanas they offer are pricey and just ok. Give me a neighborhood Bar Familiar any day!

I would not recommend this place to anyone. The food is bad and at night they play very loud and horrible music.

This has been one of the best restaurants we've been to in Merida. We had the buffet which included a somewhat limited salad bar and some vegetables. However, the meat was carved at our table and it just kept coming! They brought several varieties of meat, explaining each and asking which cut we wanted. We finally could eat no more.... More

Went for one of the all you can eat meat feast buffets and was not dissapointed! Absolutely loads of various well cooked meats carved at your table and unlimited draught beer plus a buffet table if all that meat isnt enough for you. Cost 200 peso each but overall excellent value. We went around 5pm and the deal finished at... More
