Fresh and delicious!

Best we tried in Guanajuatao. Mestizo serves fresh sea food. Try the tuna with the tomato / avocado salsa, it's really delicious!

Really liked the setup of this restaurant, as it seemed to be an old house that was re-purposed as a restaurant. Not my first time eating in a spot like this, but I have a soft spot for restaurants that were originally houses. It gives it a really unique atmosphere, sort of a bunch of different little dining rooms. The... More

Simple, relaxing, delicious. This small restaurant is located very close to de Alhondiga de Granaditas. The owner/chef was very courteous. Service is slow, but the wait is worth. Everything we tried during our visit was very original and delightful.

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.

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.

THIS is the restaurant that I take visitors to. I've lived here three years now, and this is the best in the center of town. Trust me. My friends did, and no Mestizo is their favorite, too. Thick steaks in Mexico can be hard to find. Mestizo has some nice, juicy, thick steaks, with about 4 or 5 varieties of... More
