Great food, artistic ambiance!

Beautiful presentation, and delicious food! Nice ambiance and reasonable prices! Best mojito ever. Loved the separate little rooms that open up to each other.

Really, there's nothing remarkable about their menu. You'll find the same things in lots of restaurants, you just won't find them any better. Both the fixins and the fixing shine through.

One of the best restaurants we have ever eaten in! The food was both an artistic delight and a culinary masterpiece. It was so good that we ate there 4 times during our 1 week visit to the city. Chef Javier was very personable and ensured complete satisfaction of the diners. He was very accommodating in creating some incredible culinary... More

I cannot say enough about how good the food is at this restaurant. On the 3rd night of our 7 day vacation in Guanajuato, we went to Mestizo and we ate there the next 5 nights of our trip. All meals were paired beautifully with very nice wine. Main courses: 1st night, pork chops cooked to perfection. Moist and complimented... More

Actually, quite a lot of restaurants in Guadalajara are a bit tricky to find and the map provided by the tourist office is abysmal - about as accurate as the Mappa Mundi, but without the historical significance. Sorry, I digress. This is a small first floor restaurant serving exceptional Mexican food. Service is low key, but if you're interested in... More

What an experience! My husband and I went to Mestizo for comida today. It's a beautiful place. In truth, more of a fine dining experience than we expected. The furnishings are bright and clean. Beautiful artwork and regional ceramics decorate the restaurant. The restaurant was not busy. The other diner in our section was savouring and photographing his food (just... More

The place is tastefully decorated and the service was very good. The star of the show though is the food, which was beautifully presented and with great taste. It's not cheap, be highly recommended.

Went for lunch - all started great with local craft beer and fantastic ceviche, tortilla soup. No kids choices but they accommodated....all going great ... ordered a beef filet with goat cheese and caramelized onion to close it with a bang but they overcooked it .....still a hidden gem. Give a 4 out of 5 for its coziness, local options... More

I took my extended family to Guanajuato in June. The host of the house we stayed out said that Mestizo was their favorite restaurant and the tortilla soup was a must have. Hands down, this place had the best food I have ever had in Mexico, and I have traveled all over Mexico for the past 35 years. The tortilla... More
