Nice food, friendly service. I had pork with pineapple and vegetables, the meat was cooked perfectly. Modern cuisine, so a nice change if you need a break from the cycle of tacos, quesadillas and gorditas. Enjoyed the wine too!

Artful surroundings, lovely service, delicious food and wine...hard to say more. This great restaurant in downtown Guanajuato exceeded our high expectations. Attached to the magnificent Capelo gallery (and decorated with many pieces of art and ceramics by Capelo), we spent a long and enjoyable lunch in January 2015. We will definitely return. (Warning: their opening time is a little flexible... More

The Capelo family is a talented bunch....from ceramics to painting to architecture to food. One of the sons is the chef/owner of Mestizo. Every time i am in Guanajuato i go at least once. the food is fresh and creatively prepared. And while you're waiting for the food to arrive, you can enjoy the paintings on the wall, and the...

For our last night in Guanajuato after we read about Mestizo's in Lonely Planet and reading reviews on Trip Advisor, my husband and I decided to go. We made the right decision. After the waiter came to describe the day’s specials, Javier, the owner/chef welcomed us and offered us a complimentary appetizer. After poring over the menu we decided on... More

I had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant. The tortilla soup is one of the best I've ever had. I also had the Medallions of Beef in Dark Berry sauce - the flavors were understated but delicious. The margarita and sangria were also above average. Highly recommended - I will definitely eat here again - this is one of... More

Before bringing our entrees, they served us a delicious appetizer spinach, mushrooms on toasted bread. so good. We had the beef with caramelized onions, and goat cheese. No need for the goat...

Even tough it might be on the less traveled of the paths in Guanajuato town, this little restaurant more than makes up for it with excellent selection of dishes at a very reasonable price. The eclectic colonial/modern decoration style makes it an ideal place for a romantic or intimate dinner. Waiter very attentive and pleasant. Highly recommended. There is also... More

Lovely setting with white table linen, wine glasses out in 2 small stone walled rooms with modern art pieces on the wall. Food is international, not mexican cuisine, which doesn't make it bad nor good, just to note. Well prepared with a good presentation. Nice complimentary appetizer. Quite impressed with the food. I expected the prices here to be higher... More
