The restaurant is an excellent location right across from the Roman Forum. My waiter, Nemi, spoke excellent English, was very friendly and recommended some excellent wines and local craft beers. For beer I had La Piporra which was quite good. La Extremena also has an excellent Vermouth that is homemade and is among the best I've ever had. Drinks were served with a complimentary risotto and a delicious sauce. There is also a good variety of tapas on the menu which were all excellent. The chef and owner of the restaurant is very friendly and made me feel at home. I highly recommend this restaurant. The food and service was excellent and the location and ambience takes it to the next level. Next time I'm in Merida y will be sure to visit the Extremena and bring more friends for drinks and tapas.

The food here is very good as is the service. The location is pretty amazing too: right across the street from the Forum. The only "complaint" is that getting the food is a very slow process. And while I appreciate good food and understand the Spanish desire to experience your food, you should not expect to be out of this restaurant in under two hours.

La extremeña, Mérida has comfortable seating inside and a terrace along the narrow street directly opposite the roman ruins. We lunched with starters of chopped smoked fish on a salad tower followed by calamar romana and an excellent dish of pork fillet with a sauce, chunks of shitaki mushrooms. Well priced menu del día muy rico. Good value.

Perfect location, great local food by talented female chef and friendly staff. A great place to re-energize after visiting the Roman ruins. Had delicious albóndigas, bacalao and cold beer!
