Restaurante Picheta

A more central location with a better view is hardly possible in Mérida. Restaurante Picheta is located directly on the Plaza Grande in a 350-year-old building next to the Palacio de Gobierno (the government building).

Picheta has a roof terrace where you can enjoy the sunset over dinner with a glass of wine. Inside, the restaurant exudes a colonial flair with its high ceilings and antique furniture. The restaurant with a long tradition was opened back in 1977.

Restaurante Picheta has set itself the goal of establishing a unity between pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern times with its cuisine. Of course, there is also a rich selection of Mexican and international wines that perfectly match the dishes.

It is considered one of the best restaurants in Mérida and has been awarded the Tripadvisor Traveller Award. With almost 900 restaurants listed, Restaurante Picheta is most of the time in the top 10.

The price level is correspondingly high and it's best to make a reservation, as Restaurante Picheta is often busy, especially in the evening.

Online reservations for Restaurante Picheta are also possible. In addition to its own website, you can also find Restaurante Picheta on Facebook and Instagram.
