If you are looking for an upscale restaurant with outstanding food made with the grandmother style and ingredients, this is the place to go. It had a great view of Guanajuato and it also offers a good wine variety. It has the great Mexican cuisine.

This lovely restaurant is worth the taxi ride up the mountain on windy little roads ~ wonderful view of the whole city. The food is imaginative and wonderful, and the corn cake desert is very good. We highly recommend going out there for dinner!

This was our first visit to Casa Mercedes. Atmosphere and service are very good. All of our appetizers (3) were very good. I had the main course of Chamorro which was beautifully prepared and totally met my expectations. My wife's dish was not so good....More
