If you want good authentic Mexican food, this is not for you. It is nice inside and great atmosphere. Food is presented well... but this is more for tourists who don't know any better. I don't know how they got a #1 rating but they do not deserve it.

We spent an entire day walking the streets, stairways and alleys of Guanajuato and during those travels, we ran across this restaurant. After looking at the facility and menu, we decided to make a reservation for that evening. One of the best decisions we have ever made! We had the "House Salad", which apparently changes frequently but was one of... More

Went here expecting more, and although things were good, the basa with pineapple and cilantro was not what I hoped. The best part was the complimentary appetizer, although the house salad was quite a nice surprise. Would go again though

I read the reviews and I can't understand what anyone had to complain about. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten! Every dish we ordered was perfectly prepared, excellently presented and incredibly balanced on the palate. The service was excellent. They were attentive yet not over bearing. As soon as we arrived they removed the wine... More

I'm an artist, so I always like to visit places that display local artists. Mestizo does that as well as ceramics from local people. Gorgeous. Really. It is a very quaint restaurant just up the street from Diego Rivera's home. Easy to find and the art is great. The service was a bit lacking until the Owner, I think, came... More

Probably the best restaurant we ate at during our 7 night stay. While not an extensive menu, the food was excellently prepared and presented. The Owner is also the Chef and he made the effort to come and explain the dishes on the menu (my Spanish is limited) which was a great help in ordering. Would definitely go back.

It was so good that we went back the next day. And it's not even that expensive! Try the beef and the sweet stuff! Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ate lunch there and couldn't have been happier. The place was empty but the service and food were both exceptional. We couldn't believe how cheap it was for the quality.
