My daughter told me about this restaurant in Guanajuato. It is beautifully situated on the hillside, overlooking the quaint and cultural city. The restaurant/home is beautifully decorated, has a nice complement of wines and other beverages, so so beautiful. The service was amazing, our waiter spoke nice English, and was ready to accommodate our wishes. We had some tasty little... More

From the moment we arrived at this wonderful restaurant, we felt at home in someone's beautiful Casa. There are only 6 tables and we were the 2nd table of the evening. We were seated at the window table. Our waiter was wonderful, answering all our questions about the food - there are 3 courses but you can have all or... More

This restaurant is a little out of the way but don't miss it. We had all three courses and everything we tried was really delicious.

This restaurant is a bit out the way, but it is well worth the taxi ride (about 50 pesos from the center). The chef creates gourmet dishes without losing the traditional Mexican flavor and style. In 25 years of traveling to Mexico, this is one of the best restaurants we've eaten at. We were so pleased with our first meal,... More

Not knowing how popular this restaurant is, we showed up by taxi without reservations. But, the staff offered to seat us if would wait for a few minutes, then put us at a wonderful table in the courtyard. This was a Mexican nouvelle cuisine experience! Fresh ingredients and creative dishes. Don't miss this place!

We were fortunate enough to have enjoyed a meal at Las Mercedes this October. Las Mercedes is an intimate restaurant with a spectacular view of Guanajuato. The owners are committed to presenting Mexican food prepared in traditional ways using fresh and unusual ingredients. We were presented cocktails prepared with mezcal, prickly pear juice, and a hint of lime. Fantastic. Appetizers... More

Elegant Mexican cuisine, absolutely delicious. The service was first class, and the food was fabulously prepared. Traditional Mexican recipes, made with the freshest, finest ingredients. The restaurant is in what appears to have been a residence, and commands a fantastic view over several valleys from its hillside outside of the central town area. I can't say too many good things!...

Wanted to try this restaurant based on word of mouth and reviews. Took the time to shower, get well dressed, and take a cab all the way to Las Mercedes which is outside of the city center. Had a reservation. They gave me a nice table near the window with a view. The waiter was kind and efficient. Spoke perfect... More
