We had an amazing dinner at Mercader. Service was excellent. Very small restaurant so at busy times a reservation is required. We had the Pad Thai and would recommend it highly. We would have gone back again but didn’t have time.

Mercader is a cozy little restaurant, only 7 tables, close to the Bay of Santa Cruz. In our menu you will find International dishes and Thai food, prepared at the moment with fresh and local ingredients. On the winter season we suggest to make your reservation in advance so we can provide you with a better service.
