i visited caso nano on a couple of occasions for lunch, and once for dinner in the evening.
the menus del dia were priced at 12 euros and 23 euros, and to be honest you are just as well going for the cheaper one as i really couldnt tell any difference in quality nor, really, choice.
saying that though the food was of a good standard, fairly typical spanish fare, eg gazpacho, salmon a la plancha and flan, with salad, bread and a bottle of chilled red wine. there was a choice of around 5 or 6 starters and main courses and the restaurant itself was situated in the back of the establishment, to get there you are led through the kitchen-no bad thing as you can see whats going on.
in the evening meals seem to be served in a room at the front.
the location of casa nano is not the most salubrious, due to some renovation work that is going on but do give this place a go as it was friendly and decent and unlike some we were given the menu del dia straight away, not just the a la carte one as happened on a couple of occasions elsewhere.
Favorite Dish: i particularly liked the "flavoured mashed potatoes" which came as a starter.
Next to food market in Merida downtown, Casa Benito is a must if you want to try really tasty "tapas" in a old bar. Perhaps at first you will feel a little abashed with bull-fighting decoration, but it has the virtue of being a kind of historical: 1930's posters and another interesting items. A nice crypt gives and additional flavour to this place
Pegado al mercado de alimentación en el centro de Merida, Casa Benito es un sitio imprescindible si quieres probar tapas verdaderamente sabrosas en un bar antiguo. Quizas en principio te sientas un poco aplanado por la decoración taurina, pero tiene la virtud de ser de tipo histórico: posters de la decada de 1930 y otros articulos interesantes.
Favorite Dish: You can choose two different areas: one, on the ground floor for tapas and light meals, and the restaurant area in the first floor.
Spacious pizzeria-restaurante with a friendly approach. Decorations remaind you of the Roman time.
In the floor there is a glass cover which permits you to look down to the cellar, where some roman findings are visible (see intro-photo).
We were arriving late and this nice restaurant was open and served us at late hours.
Favorite Dish: Spaghetti Pesto and Pizza 4 Stagioni.
