Lovely atmosphere, amazing food

Had an amazing meal here last night, had the chicken with mushroom sauce, and dessert of ice icream and berries. The menu is in Spanish only at this time, so bring a translating app or dictionary if you need help, it's worth it. The chicken was so delicious and tender. The service was attentive... read more

I never understand Trip Advisor. I went to this place one night after going to Los Campos. Los Campos was good but Mestizo is wonderful - a definite class above. And according to Trip Advisor, Los Campos is the second best In Guanajuato after Los Mercedes (a very worthy Number One) and Mestizo is number five. There is no justice... More

I wanted so much to like this restaurant because there are few really excellent dining experiences in Gto. The building itself and decor are perfect, having been originally conceived as the Capelo gallery. It was quiet even with the street outside, maybe too quiet: we were the only comensales! The waiter was adequately attentive to our queries, but did not... More

This is not your typical "Mexican" restaurant so if you're looking for tacos and tamales, go somewhere else. But it's an art-filled restaurant a bit off the tourist track with some awesome choices and reasonable prices. Little English is spoken (a good sign) so look up the words you don't know from the photograph of the menu on the Trip... More

They supposedly close at 6 pm on Sundays. Went in at 4.50 and they said it was close even they had at leadt 3 tables with customers. They clearly don't care about customers. Will never come back.

We've been here a number of times, and are always impressed. The food is very good, good service, and inexpensive. I love the place with the pottery and art all around, as well as the pottery shop in the front. I would recommend making sure it's open before visiting because the hours are a bit different than other restaurants in... More

This combination restaurant (the son) and ceramics studio (the father) is not to be missed. We were in Guanajuato for 5 days and ate dinner here twice. Food is innovative and delicious.

We returned to Mestizo three years after our first meal there. I was thrilled to find that the food is still as good as I remembered and the chef as delighted to do special requests as ever. The menu has greatly expanded and the prices are higher, but it's still great value for the money. We had a wonderful dinner... More

Nice food, friendly service. I had pork with pineapple and vegetables, the meat was cooked perfectly. Modern cuisine, so a nice change if you need a break from the cycle of tacos, quesadillas and gorditas. Enjoyed the wine too!

Artful surroundings, lovely service, delicious food and wine...hard to say more. This great restaurant in downtown Guanajuato exceeded our high expectations. Attached to the magnificent Capelo gallery (and decorated with many pieces of art and ceramics by Capelo), we spent a long and enjoyable lunch in January 2015. We will definitely return. (Warning: their opening time is a little flexible... More
