Peter, First of all, thank you for writing! I hope you like Merida as much as I do. Usually, we eat dinner at home and only eat lunch out when we're out doing things. Downtown Merida has a plethora of good restaurants; there's also Trip Advisor - http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurants-g150811-Merida_Municipality_of_Merida_Yucatan_Peninsula.html A quirky little must-try restaurant that's a bit out of Centro Historico is the Smoking Club #1.

I hope this helps!
