As of early February, this restaurant is not open for dinner. It seems odd, as the decor and presentation is that of a moderately expensive dinner restaurant, as is their menu. We went for lunch and were presented with the menu that they used to offer for dinner and at dinner prices. I have to wonder at the business plan... More

This little restaurant brought back memories of Barcelonia and Santorini. A bistro style restaurant with Europena class, ambience, food and leisure service. This is not a place you want to rush through dinne...it just won't happen. It was mid week and we were the first to arrive and the last to leave. The decor was on the contemporary side and... More

We went to Cassandras after reading the reviews and concur that the food is very good. The owner offered us an complementary app, a spanish tortilla patatas, it was very excellent, shredded potatoes, fluffy eggs and a spicy mayo. drizzled over. We followed that with a salad of very fresh mixed greens with cherry tomatoes and grilled shrimp all tossed... More

We had a lovely experience for dinner. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. We had the stuffed mushrooms to begin which were delightful. Moving on we had fish done in a burre-blanc sauce and the stuffed pablano. They were exceptional and the pumpkin mousse alongside the pablano was so rich and decadent. Our experience was made...

We live in the Santa Ana neiborhood and so we were eager to dine at Cassandra's. It's a liitle out of the way, on a street that does not have restaurants, etc. But it's in the middle of that part of old Merida that is being rapidly renovated and gentrified. It has a lovely garden and indoor eating space, attractive... More

We recently had the opportunity to visit Merida and decided to stop into this lovely bistro for dinner. The ambience reminded me of many places in European towns with a cozy indoor area with bar and a walled patio adorned with soft lighting, candles, and stone. It felt peaceful and inviting. The tables were good but they had folding chairs... More

I found the food well prepared, promptly served and very tasty. This is my second time at Cassandras and noted that their prices seemed quite a bit less expensive than the first time. Cassandras is located on Calle 68, around Calle 49. Quiet neighborhood bistro, less noisy than the places over on Calle 60 that are closer to the main... More

Just three of our group made it out last night to try out this restaurant. We've waited for the first month or so's rush to calm down, for things to settle down in the kitchen to work the bugs out. Even though it's in Centro they have a small parking lot (free) and you can always find parking around the... More
