We went to Mestizo teo times (so far) and are probably going again. The filet de res with peanuts was to die for. The chef Javier, obviously knows how to grill and when asked medium rare, medium rare is what you get. The fact alone they asked is not very common in Mexico. To me it seems that Javier had... More

I visited last year but never got round to reviewing it. The restaurant is upstairs with a few small table but in a beautifully decorated room. The menu features a lot of local traditional food so the menu is difficult for someone with just s little European Spanish but the chef was happy to come out and explain everything. The... More

My best meal in ages. Incredible quail in red wine reduction. Also had the ceviche and, for dessert, the apple tart, which was covered with chocolate and warmed berries, with homemade whipped cream on the side. All of this presented artfully in an airy, arty space. The bonus was the chef coming out to explain the intricasies of his locally-sourced... More

We spent 4 months in Guanajuato, GTO, from May to Sept 2016 and tried several restaurants, and Mestizo was by far our favorite. Never disappointing, like most of the others were after reading their reviews. Elote cream soup was a favorite. The pork was excellent. Salmon was really amazing! Being from western Canada, we are picky with our salmon!! Pasta... More

Thanks to other TripAdvisor recommendations, we found Mestizo. Service, food and restaurant decor were all in sync. Especially liked the artwork, colors and Talavera and Majolica pottery from the region on the walls and cabinets. Side note: I tried to order the special fish dish in aluminum foil (shown as the trip advisor establishing photo) but it was no longer... More

My tenderloin steak was prepared with carmelized onions and julienned vegetables. It was cooked to perfection - the taste and texture were scrumptious. Mestizo will be our first dinner stop next time we're in Guanajuato.

It was recommended on a list of restaurants that we read from our apartment complex , and the only one that we are not disappointed with. Love the atmosphere, being located close to the casa and museo de Diego Rivera, is another plus . I love the tamarinada, which is is the mixed of tamarindo and limonada. We will return... More

We came here because of the recommendations on Trip Advisor, and the place is simply superb. The ambience in simple but elegant, and even with beautiful table linens, it is still comfortable and relaxed. The artwork is excellent, and makes it like eating in a gallery. The staff was attentive without hovering. But what makes this restaurant is the exceptionally... More

This restaurant was recommended to me and my friend by a friend who lives in GTO and we were not disappointed. We both decided to try the loin pork chop with carmelized apples served on vegies. It was wonderful...we enjoyed every morsel and it was a truly generous serving. The wine was also terrific and the service was spot on.... More
