Delicious!

We walked by the restaurant, checked out the menu and decided to have lunch there. So glad we did! The tapas were delicious, so was the tortilla soup and ceviche!

We always end our visit with a meal here. Excellent appetizers, salads & entrees. Even the desserts are memorable. Excellent service & lovely surroundings. Just steps from The Diego Rivera Boyhood home.

This very nice place serves amazing food. Absolutely delicious. Fantastic, helpful service. The chef also prepares vegetarian dishes, which are not on the menu.

Off the beaten track and well worth the search. We had a typical mid Sunday afternoon lunch that was absolutely delicious. A fabulous spread made with capers accompanied the bread. I echo another review citing Mestizo as among the best restaurants in Guanajuato.

Thick steaks in Mexico can be hard to find. Mestizo has some nice, juicy, thick steaks, with about 4 or 5 varieties of... More

I've been here twice and both times the food has been exceptional. It's always very quiet and I don't know why, the food is some of the best in Guanajuato. Fish & Ceviche - AMAZING

I think that this is definitely among the best restaurants in Guanajuato. The food is very good, and the atmosphere is a bit moore upscale for Guanajuato. Pablo, the server is old school, and a real find

Decor with original ceramics was very nice. Salad with baby spinach, apples, and shaved Parmesan, excellent. Great service. And great cabaret Mexican singers in background.
