Casa Mercedes lives up to all its reviews. Splendid, small but diverse menu. Great service and ambience. But the food quality and presentation is of international standard. Subtle flavours, creative combinations. Our favourites were the kale wrap and the exquisite tuna steak. The ant eggs and grasshoppers are also a must. Congratulations to everyone who helped make our visit so... More

Casa Mercedes is the real deal. We were treated when arrived to a mezcal coctail made from an artisanal form of this exquisite liquor that was purchased nearby. The wait staff are superbly trained. They know the menu inside and out and provide superior guidance as you work your way from entrada to postres. We chose this restaurant because it... More

The place is really small, only 6 tables, so you need to make a reservation in advance. The ambience is cozy and it feels really mexican and traditional as soon as you come in. Some tables are next to the window and you can get a pretty nice view. We shared everything we ordered so I got to try a... More

Excellent food and service and wonderful views of Guanajuato. Definitely worth the short taxi ride from town. Our hostess was very attentive and helpful in deciphering the menu.

Ambience: 3 - The restaurant is located in the outskirts of Guanajuato. The interior is welcoming and cozy. We were seated at the window overlooking Guanajuato and were very happy with our table. After a strong thunderstorm however water leaked into the restaurant and we had water puddles under our table, which the staff promptly dried. Service: 3 - The... More

During a weekend trip with friends for a wedding, another couple had looked for dining recommendations in trip advisor; I'm glad we found this place. We did have to make a reservation because it is small and it is always full, and we were lucky enough to get a table We shared most of the dishes so we could try... More

Reading some of the other reviews on TripAdvisor, we were at first discouraged because some of those reviews indicated that Casa Mercedes was far away from downtown. However, we talked to the chef at another restaurant who spoke so highly about Casa Mercedes and assured us that it was not that all that far. We are so glad we ate... More

Although the place is not in downtown, so you need to take a cab, the trip is worth it. The place is small, about 7 tables. The menu is simple: it is divided in the appetizers, soups and mains. No more than 20 plates. We share three dishes plus a dessert (which are not in the menu). The tacos de... More

We very much enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant interior is comfortable and very tasteful. I counted approximately eight tables, so the atmosphere is quiet and intimate. Dishes are unique creations of the chef, and to me, an extranjero, a blend of Mexican ingredients and international flavors and presentations. Our waitress, Juliana, was professional and very helpful with our questions.... More

Service was outstanding. It almost felt that we had our personal butler. It's a romantic small place with few tables and reservation is a must. Everything from the drinks to the food was excellent. Must visit when in town.
