Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 June 2010

May 2010. The food quality nor the service resembles any Michelin star restaurant I've visited. Service is mediocre, without manager nor maitre nor even the Chef! Food is far below standard and they should lose the star immediately, its an insult to Michelin. It's obvious standards have fallen over the last 2 years and probably - should- close. The menu at 65€ is very expensive for whats served. Wines are well overpriced. Table service is sloppy, food served haphazardly and men sometimes first, leaning across to serve wine, and presenting and removing plates without care for etiquette.

Food was served almost raw, and the waitresses offered to re cook it , in whats supposed to be a first class restaurant !! Desert had to be returned for the strawberries were either dry or rotten .

Reviewed 17 September 2008

Overlooking the Calatrava-designed Lusitania Bridge just outside Merida city centre, the entrance to Altair is next to a somewhat dingy-looking Italian diner. Down the flight of stairs and you are transported to a top-notch modern restaurant that wasn't remotely phased by us being in shorts and short-sleeved shirts (we were the most underdressed people there though).

Around eight choices for each of three courses, or a degustacion menu for 68 euros which we would have had if it weren't lunchtime with a plane to catch that afternoon. Prices look high (about 25-30 euros for main courses) not helped a poor UK£ exchange rate, but you get plenty of extras before, between courses and after, and the quality is excellent throughout.

We suspect it's well-used by corporates entertaining clients, and romantics seeking somewhere for a quiet two-some might not like its light, minimalist lines but we couldn't really fault it.
