“Just perfect”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Last week, during our third visit to Guanjuato, we dined at Las Mercedes. We both selected the ensalada del dia and then a steak. We usually do not choose steak in Mexico, but these were just perfect: quality, seasoning and cooking as good as anything I've had, anywhere.

The service and ambiance rivals any first class restaurant. A very good wine list, a little pricy compared to the other first class restaurants in Guanjuato.

We're planning to return this week to sample the pescado.

“One of the best meals I had in my entire life!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

One of the best meals I had in my entire life!

After reading so many good comments here, we went to Las Mercedes for our last dinner in Guanajuato! What a wonderfull surprise!!!

The place is beautiful and very well decorated, with a nice atmosphere, like a really good music (we felt as if we were in a Wood Allen's movies). The service was great (what to say about the chef, Jesus? He's incredibly kind and attentive). And the food... Oh god, we live in São Paulo and have already visited lots of restaurants all around the world. But this place is definitely one of the top list!

Food was incredibly delicious, we had to great wines, recommended by the chef. It was truly a sensory experience, a real culinary incursion!!! I'll never forget it so, if you go to Guanajuato, you should not miss this restaurant!!!

high above the city, the view is breathtaking. we arrived at about 8 pm on a sunday only to learn they closed at 6:00 on sundays. the chef came out apologizing and said we were welcome to stay but he didn't have much in the way of food left as they had been very busy that day. We said great! Make us whatever you want. We had an appetizer of nopales layered with goat cheese followed by a pork shank to die for, so tender and juicy. Dessert was a pear poached in red wine. Everyone treated us wonderfully. A definite go to place!

“Best contemporary Mexican food in the region.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

This hard to find restaurant has everything to be a top restaurant. The only area where they really need to improve it's the service, as the waitress is too slow. But besides that, food speed it is exact to let you enjoy an appetizer and a cocktail (I personally recommend the xoconoxtle and mezcal cocktail). Any dish you pick will delight you, and you will be looking in coming back again ASAP!
