We recently made our third visit to this culinary gem and the food seems to keep getting better. The duck tacos are not to be missed and their take on chiles en nogada is divine. The restaurant is in a pretty obscure location, but cab drivers know where it is and the restaurant owner "comped" us on our return cab... More

What a treat for the senses! My friend and I read about this restaurant on Trip Advisor and took the advice of several reviewers. So glad we did. What a delightful setting inside a lovely old building with sweeping views of the city of colorful Guanajuato! Our server was a delight. Informed, charming, helpful and eager to provide us with...

Las Mercedes is a beautiful building with a great view over Guanajuato, and the food is as wonderful as the location. I shared a 'chile en nogada' with my Mexican friend, who'd been encouraging me to try it for weeks - and she was absolutely right, it's an incredible dish. Then chicken with a green sauce based around pistachios, unlike... More

I wanted to take my girlfriend to a romantic place to eat and did I hit the jackpot! Jesus the owner arranged for a bouquet of roses to be at the table at arrival and they were there just as promised. Our table was situated at a window to where we could dine and look out at the beautiful neighborhood... More

We had a wonderful diner here. I ate on different cities around Mexico and this is one of the best restaurants I have ever been. You are not going to eat here something that you can find somewhere else.

If you go to Guanajuato do yourself a favor and go to this intimate, family owned restaurants. It is simply one of the best meals you will ever have. All the ingredients are natural and fresh and many of the recipes are ancient local recipes. We went two days in a row and wish we could go back more. Don't... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with great service and true Mexican Cuisine. The Mole's were outstanding- several different kinds.

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful night out at Las Mercedes. The restaurant is in a lovely setting, a house high on a hill overlooking Guanajuato. While the food was excellent ...the best we had in town... and we had some really good food at other restaurants in the area... the service and ambience were simply outstanding. Our... More

We had a fabulous meal at Las Mercedes tonight. We enjoyed the sopa negro and pork shanks while looking out over this wonderful city. Both recipes were passed down in the family and the flavours were exquisite. The service and ambiance were also remarkable and we'll be back for sure.

Great location on the hill, beautifully decorated inside; small and intimate, with fantastic service and even better food. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Make a reservation well in advance, as there are only a handful of tables.
