“Simply Magnificent; Perfect in Every Way”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

What could I possibly add to the hundreds of reviews that would just echo the very same things I would mention ... From the moment I arrived, without a reservation, and was graciously seated ... to the linen napkins and amuse bouche that began my meal all the way down to the live jazz ensemble playing throughout my dessert when the owner called for a cab to take me back to my hotel, this restaurant displayed charm, class, and above all, quite possibly the best food I've ever eaten in Mexico anywhere. Las Mercedes could easily hold its own in New York City or any other major cosmopolitan market. (In fact, a review from the New York Times proudly hangs on their wall when you enter). This is a destination not to be missed when in Guanajuato.

“Best contemporary mexican food, but with traditional receipes!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

It is hard to dind your way around Guanajuato, and to Las Mercedes, but once you are there, both are worth it every minute invested in getting there. Located in the north portion of the city, near La panoramica (Panoramic street) this restaurant has one of the best kitchens in the bajio area, with a value you will not belive. Every dish it is unique on it's own, with all the traditional flavor of Mexico, but balanced and cook to perfection to make a memorable ocasion. They also have a nice list of wines, and the view at night is wonderful. Just remember it is closed on monday. Do not forget to try the xoconostle cocktail!

“Must go!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

This is a special place, out of the way but worth it.
The chili rellenos in a caramel sauce was brilliant! Coconut dessert has me craving coconut days later.
