Great location on the hill, beautifully decorated inside; small and intimate, with fantastic service and even better food. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Make a reservation well in advance, as there are only a handful of tables.

A small place, Only 7 tables. It is high in the hills overlooking centro historico. All three who were with us loved their meals. Two had the seared tuna and the other Chamorro. Reservations definitely a good idea. One caveat, although the wine list is good, the prices are very high for Mexico. the food was also expensive by Mexican standards, but worth the money. If you are a drinker, stick to local beer with your meal or be will to spend a lot on wine.

Last minute decision to try this restaurant before returning home with our luggage in tow. The staff was helpful and courteous in placing our luggage in a safe location. We also brought our own wine and did not mind the 100 peso corking charge. The food was well beyond our expectations and was the best authentic Mexican meal that we have enjoyed in our travels in Mexico. Our meal began with an appetizer of four small beef tacos stacked in a rich chill sauce. For our main meal, we both recommend the veal shank for the flavour, quantity and excellent presentation. Unfortunately, we had no room to adventure and try a dessert.

The menu is not that extensive but everything we tried was delicious. We tried 3 different soups and 3 different main courses and 2 desserts. High quality, great flavor, good reasonable portions. Mezcal Cocktail is very good. The service was great too! We definitively want go back.
Helpful tip: reserve in advance as there are only 6 tables!

This was our second meal at Las Mercedes and the experience was as good as the first time. Fantastic food at reasonable prices for the quality and execution. We center our trips around restaurants and this is one we will keep coming back to.
