    Heladeria Coromoto
    3 more images

    I'm an ice cream lover and I eat lots of ice cream all year round, so I was definitely not going to miss the famous Heladeria Coromoto. Coromoto is in the Guinness Book of Records for being the ice cream place with most flavours, over 900. They don't have all 900 flavours at the same time, but there is a big choice of both well known flavours and flavours not so common for ice cream. For example they had ice creams with the taste of salmon, pimiento and mushrooms in vine the day I was there.
    I had had a terrible cough for several days and was not feeling too well in the chest, so when I was at Coromoto I made the hard decision not to have an ice cream as something cold was not going to make it better.

    Two flavours cost 5 Bs and three flavours cost 7 Bs (June 2008).
    Heladeria Coromoto is closed on Mondays and open other days between 14.15 - 21.00.

    la trattoria da Lino: authentic italian food

    by call_me_rhia Updated Aug 6, 2008

    outside the restaurant

    Somehow someone had told us that it's possible to have real authentic Italian food in Merida. We decided to give it a try and went to the recommended Trattoria da Lino - where we met... guess... Lino. He's an incredibly nice man, an architect and a university teacher who has this restaurant as a hobby.

    Favorite Dish: Lino's wife is from the Emilia-Romagna area in Italy - possibly the area which serves the most delicious food... and she does justice to it. We had the most delicious home-made pastas and gnocchi of this world.

    Casa Andina

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lunch at Casa Adina

    This is a nice and quiet restaurant where the tables are situated beside a courtyard with green plants. The walls are decorated with artefacts and photos.
    At Casa Andina they have cheap set menues of the day that are good value. The first time I ate here I chose creamy fish soup and chicken in black sauce. There was also rice, platano and sallad on the plate. Served with the food was also two pieces of bread and juice (several flavours to choose from).The price was 14 Bsf (June 2008).
    It is absolutly worth going here.

  • La Abadia Restaurante: The Best Food in Merida

    by Dimitriff Updated Oct 27, 2007
    Goticos!!!
    1 more image

    This groovy restaurant serves up some of the best steak, salads and pasta in town, and you get a half hour internet use thrown in. With three floors of funky Colonial decoration, the theme is very Catholic . The bar serves up mean cocktails, and is a good place to meet people. Its sister restaurant La Abadía del Angel has been a Mérida institution for years.

    Favorite Dish: The Goticos and The Juan Pablo is the best!!!

    HELADERIA COROMOTO: ICE-CREAM PARLOUR IN THE GUINESS BOOK OF RECORDS

    by swesn Updated Oct 20, 2007

    Heladeria Coromoto is world-famous and tour buses download scores and scores of tourists to visit it.

    Well, it is apparently in the Guiness Book of Records. It has up to 750, or some say, 1000 ice-cream flavours… whatever!

    OK, there were many many many and I mean many ice-cream flavour signs on the board, but the ice-cream flavours available at the counter for choosing were fewer, (about 100) but still, mind-boggling.

    Imagine, ice-cream flavours for 'hamburger', 'smoked trout', 'beer', 'rice with chicken', 'garlic', 'spaghetti', etc… and there are others with perplexing names like Italy, Norway, Europe, Africa, Miss Venezuela, My Beautiful Mérida, For You My Love, Sun and Shadow, Viagra The Hope, etc…

    I ordered ‘Cream of Crab’ and ‘Eternal Love’. The ‘Crab’ was so-so, but ‘Eternal Love’ tasted very nice. Ah, now I can say I know the taste of eternal love, hahaa…

    El Molinero: Great Andian Style Breakfast or Lunch

    El Molino Breakfast
    1 more image

    This restaurant is highly recommended by me and another on this website. When I was there in 1995, I dined alone, but was well served. I had the Pescina Andina, along with fried cheeze, trigo arepas, coffee, and fresh orange juice (see photo). The building is a wood frame ranch style house of sorts with decorative checkered tableclothes and other oramentation not normally seen in Venezuelan restaurants. But, this is Andean Venezuela and things are different here, and this local food fits very well with the cool foggy climate. And yet, the prices were very reasonable, as is most dining in Venezuela outside of Caracas.

    Save Cash with the "Menu Ejectivo"

    by 4HappyFeet Written Apr 6, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most restauants througout the city offer a set lunch menu that include fresh fruit juice, soup and a main course. These menus are tasty, filling and cost less than one dollar.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Pasticho (like lasagna)
    Chicken with arepas or trout (trucha).

    The Beverly: A gourmet delight!

    by enofile Written Feb 20, 2005
    The Beverly's architecture

    The husband and wife team that run this beautifully rustic restaurant high in the Andes, used to own a well known chic spot in Beverly Hills, California. Hence, the name. In this unlikely spot, near the owners' childhood home, they have opened a restaurant with gourmet cooking that would earn a Michelin star anywhere in the world. When you combine the outstanding kitchen with the gracious warmth of the owners and the absolutely stunning design and architecture of the building, you have a dining experience that is simply "out of this world."

    Favorite Dish: Anything the chef suggests!

    heladeria coromoto: the guinness book of "ice-creams"

    by call_me_rhia Updated Oct 18, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    record guinness ice-creams

    At the heladeria coromoto you'll find over 750 types of ice-creams... all the flavour you have ever wanted to taste, those you have never even thought that could exist (garlic ice-cream, shrimps ice-cream) and those which you really never know what the hell they are (world cup ice-cream, suiza ice-cream, planeta solitario ice-cream)

    Favorite Dish: I'm not an ice-cream fan, so I just had a small taste (lick?) of it from my partner's ice-cream. He had pinapple, orange flowers and viagra. What did viagra ice-cream taste like? Pistachios, sort of... Did it work? Yes, of course!!!

    la abadia: the "abbey"

    inside the restaurant

    The eclectic Abadia restaurant is located inside a 19th century house, but it's decorated and furnished like a gothic monastery. There are also garden and fountains in the restaurant, and a room with 30 computers.

    Favorite Dish: The best thing about this restaurant is the setting - although the food is good, too. I chose mexican chicken fajitas and was happy with it

    outside the restaurant

    One night we were simply dying for a pizza... no, this is not correct: we were walking around looking for a restaurant when we smelled pizza... real pizza baked over coals... could we resist? nope, obviously.

    Favorite Dish: A really good ham pizza. my travel partner had pasta and found it quite indifferent.
