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

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

Food here is outstanding! I have eaten at a number of restaurants in the city and this is by far the best! Excellent taste, great variety, great presentation. I cannot wait to go back...
