We loved this place. Small, intimate setting, artful food and good service. The chicken dish I had was incredible. We also tried the duck carnitas app and had a Mexican Sangiovese wine, which was quite good. It was nice to get above the city for a quiet evening. Highly recommend this experience with unique Mexican dishes that were elevated beyond... More

The restaurant was known to the locals as a great place to eat, but was kind of off the beaten trail. It is an easy taxi ride from the Central Historic District. The interior is strikingly elegant with a breathtaking view of Guanajuato. The wine selection is amazing, with a large selection of Mexican wines, which is sometimes hard to... More

The ambiance, view and service excellent. Great wine selections. Our waitress Ari was sweet and attentive. Now for the meals. My wife had the Chili Relleno stuffed with beef, raisin & nuts. Our friend Barbara had the tuna and was disappointed but being in the middle of Mexico probably not the best choice. I had the steak in a rich... More

I have been to Guanajuato many times, but this was my first experience at Casa Mercedes. IMO, this is the best fine restaurant in the city. The food is authentic Mexican with fresh ingredients, locally sourced, and just great taste. The service was excellent, explaining all the options. The owner was very friendly explaining with more detail what we were... More

This is a charming upscale spot high up in the hills overlooking Guanajuato. Created out of someone's house, the cozy dining room has a gorgeous city view. The food and service were quite good with a decent wine list but limited wines by the glass. The desserts are especially noteworthy. Well worth the a $5 cab ride.

Service was great, food was even better. Setting was so romantic at the top of the hill, appreciated it very much during dinner once it was dark out.
