There are just way better seafood places in Merida with better price, variety, location, service and flavour I'm afraid to say. I think that once upon a time it was really a place to go for the city's higher class, but it's pretty outdated

I went to Muelle 8 for lunch around 12:45 and encountered an empty restaurant, lunch doesn't get going until 1:30 or so but was welcomed by the lounging waiters. My choice for lunch was something, which I found to be quite good: Shrimp crepes stuffed with huitlacoche in a maize cream sauce. See picture. I ordered the half order as... More

Traffic and parking at 2:30 pm (high lunch time) is a pain but the valet parking helped. The food and service were very good. The ambiance leaves something to be desired. Since it was a business lunch and I was not paying, I can't comment on price. I'd recommend it for the food and service. I'll have to try it... More

The restaurant offers a full bar and when I ordered a Campari they did not ask what it was which is a plus, they brought my Campari and the orange juice that I asked for to go with my drink was freshly squeezed... heavens! The avocado and shrimp cocktail was very good, the avocado was ripe just right and the... More

Muelle 8 is a wonderful local restaurant filled with Merida's foodies. Like nearby La Pigua, the freshest seafood is brought in each day from the coast. Unlike La Pigua, this restaurant is filled with locals (not tour buses) and the room has great charm. Eat with the locals at Muelle 8 and you will go back for more!

We were excited to try this restaruant for our first time. We arrived and were immediately warm due to inadequate air conditioning. We asked to change seats and our request was denied even though there were plenty of empty tables. Our wine arrived quickly but then we were ignored during the rest of our visit in favor of other tables.... More
