Gracious host. Impeccable, attentive service. Impressive interpretations of true authentic Mexican Cuisine. And they know and are so proud of their mezcal. Such a treat!

We took a friend there as a thank you. Made most welcome and service excellent. Food tasted very good but some of the textures were not to my taste.

This has to be the most elegant restaurant in Guanajuato with an outstanding view of the city below. Essentially a dinning room in a private house with highly personal and attentive service. The food is interesting and beautifully presented and reasonably priced for a restaurant of this quality. The wine however is very poor value starting at 120 peso per... More

Las Mercedes in Guanajuato is by far my favorite restaurant experience in Mexico for all the right reasons- ambience in the home restaurant of the owners, exquisite views of the city, intimate dining, outstanding service and absolutely wonderfully prepared and presented meals and table setting. Yes, it is pricey compared to many other restaurants but very well worth it (a... More

We went there at 9:30pm. We knew that the restaurant might not accept any customer at that time, but we still chose to try it. After we arrived at the restaurant, the waiter was patient and welcoming to us. I read the commends of the restaurant before so I had high expectation on its food. The service and the atmosphere...

After hearing about Las Mercedes for years, I finally went with a group of friends. The service and food are excellent. Great atmosphere, too! I just wished I earned enough money to eat here more frequently!

Gourmet typical mexican cousine where every detail is overseen by its owner. You can guess this is the family house transformed in order to receive diners to whom they can please with excellent food and a superb service.

Las Mercedes is a little out of the way, but is truly worth the effort to get there. The restaurant is small, with a lovely atmosphere, and from our table, wonderful views. The food and service are of the very highest standard. Everything is infused with love and pride, from the preparation of the food itself, to the explanation of... More
