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

One of the best restaurant I've ever been to. The food was both an artistic delight and a culinary masterpiece. Beautiful and creative presentation. I love the separate rooms that open up to each other. The service was excellent and attentive. I recommend the Shrimp and Fish Ceviche, Tortilla Soup and the Steak. The best Margaritas in town! This is... More

Despite the good reviews, this was not one of the 5 restaurants our concierge recommended. I'm glad I trusted TripAdvisor instead. From the outside, this restaurant is underwhelming- located on one of the main narrow streets in old GTO about 10 minutes walk from the opera house. You have to climb the steps to the 2nd floor restaurant on the... More

We spent 3 nights at the Antiqua Vapor Hotel which is just a hop, skip and jump from Mestizo. The first night we stopped, we had eaten a big lunch and were just interested in dessert. This was a great choice! We ordered chocolate cake and a pecan and fruit on a gelled cream and both were delightful. The restaurant... More

This is our favorite restaurant in GTO. I always have the tenderloin steak with bleu cheese. My husband prefers their pasta. An appetizer of a pico de gallo type of salsa with toast rounds is offered gratis to enjoy with your glass of wine. A very pleasant atmosphere with a friendly waiter who is very tolerant of our efforts to... More

I love going to Mestizo, good food, art, very good service. Is a place one can try out the entire menu and never go wrong. It's consistent and delicious.
