This restaurant doesn't looks nice by first look but it's really worth a visit. I visit it twice because it was so good (Oktopus Tacos) the first time. Second time I had the cerviche. Absolutely lovely and really fresh!

Stopped in on our first day in Merida after searching through trip advisor and it didn’t disappoint! Although we know next to no Spanish, the staff were excellent and assisted! Fantastic street food loaded in flavor!

Heard great things about Marlin Azul. None of it was true. Lousy service and equally bad shrimp. Marlin Azul = avoid.

Cute little hole in the wall that has become our go- to lunch place in Merida. Really delicious shrimp ceviche plus the mixed ceviche. Breaded fish, however, is our favorite. Sweet large portion of white fish almost panko fried, Japanese style. Very reasonable and also...More

Had the shrimp ceviche. It was very good. Perfect lighter lunch to beat the heat, especially when paired with a cold beer. Liked it so much we went back and had it again the next day. Prices are low and most of the clientele were...More

All these bar style restaurant cafes are open Monday to Saturday lunchtime only. I did notice that it was still open a 6pm on my visit but do not expect them to open much later than that.
