I have been to Guanajuato many times, but this was my first experience at Casa Mercedes. IMO, this is the best fine restaurant in the city. The food is authentic Mexican with fresh ingredients, locally sourced, and just great taste. The service was excellent, explaining all the options. The owner was very friendly explaining with more detail what we were... More

I have been fortunate to travel and especially eating in many places around the world and I can say without fear of contradiction that Casa Mercedes is one of the best I've been to, it is a formidable experience of unparalleled quality, fine and discrete in every sense of the word. The food is extraordinary!. Do not hesitate to go... More

This is a charming upscale spot high up in the hills overlooking Guanajuato. Created out of someone's house, the cozy dining room has a gorgeous city view. The food and service were quite good with a decent wine list but limited wines by the glass. The desserts are especially noteworthy. Well worth the a $5 cab ride.

Service was great, food was even better. Setting was so romantic at the top of the hill, appreciated it very much during dinner once it was dark out.

Went in with a large group of family searching a for a nice experience and the management said they were so busy for groups in a very rude manner. I hope they change that awfull attitude

About a 15 minute taxi ride out of town in a residential neighborhood. Creative food such as kale wrapped shrimp, bean and chicharrones puree, and excellent pork belly. Not cheap, we had three courses and a local bottle of wine for about US$120 for two. Reservations recommended and go before dark for the view.

Get ready for gourmet Mexican food. It worth every single penny you spend there. The place is small, so would be better making a reservation. The view of Guanajuato is fantastic because the restaurant is located at the top of the hill. No recommended for kids, but for couples is perfect..

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
