Small restaurant, books up quickly. Probably one of the best meals we've ever had in Mexico. Unique moles using local ingredients and recipes. Go here for your one memorable meal in Guanajato!

I had Sopa de Capón, a small stuffed pepper appetizer in an incredible sauce, salmon with a red pipian sauce, and dessert. All were incredible. Lovely place. Fantastic service. Not cheap for Mexico, but this quality would cost you three times as much in US.

Las Mercedes is well known and very popular - and worth the taxi drive to their location in the hills of Guanajuato. I made rather late reservations and was seated in a back patio. While the food and service was fine - It's a bit like eating in Siberia. But ....... eating ---- the food and menu selections are incredible.... More

Mm mm mm. ..it's the kind of meal you want to savour each bite slowly ....we had tuna with a shrimp chili mole and chickenbreast with a pistachio mole...they were both delicious. The service was excellent and the restaurant was beautiful. A delightful experience in every way.

The restaurant closes at 10. I called at 9:45 to ask for a table and despite the time they booked me. I arrived 10:15 and despite being the last table I received one of the best services that a restaurant can give. The food its awesome! Mexican tradicional food with an excellent presentation. The execution of the dishes is neat.... More

This restaurant is a little bit out of the way, but well worth the effort. The food was excellent and the staff was not pretentious at all. I would greatly recommend it.
