The food was amazing. We were surprised since the waitress told us they mostly serve tourists. This should be filled with locals. Amazing food and great service!

We had the pork with orange barbecue and the octopus. Both were great. Portions are really big. Unless you are a big eater recommend sharing

Great jewel in downtown Guanajuato. Having Founder and Chef Javier interacting with you before cooking, is a plus plus. Try the Chistorra (spanish chorizo) and the Chuleton de Cerdo (they offer 4 different ones- based on various ingredients).

We thought this little hole in the wall restaurant was extraordinary... We loved the old charm of the building, the wonderful waitress Abby, the food ~ from the carpaccio in green chiles with roasted corn and spices, to the soups ~ cebollo with brandy and my husband's crema de elite, to the salad with beets and asparagus to the grand...

We enjoyed a most incredible luncheon here! The temperature was perfect, the light angling into the restaurant ethereal, the art on the walls divine, the waitstaff so polite and attentive, and oh my God, the food! We had an amazing meal here, and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food around us as well. The goat cheese enmolada with a... More

Wonderful restaurant on a fun street(several museums, galleries, places to hear music). On the advice of a friend, ordered the Tortilla Soup(not something I would ordinarily order) and it was a tonic to my somewhat shaky stomach. Then had a perfectly cooked chicken breast with almonds and mushrooms on a bed of cooked vegetables. Could not have tasted better. Wonderful... More

We grabbed a dinner in Mestizo last week, but it really was not anything special. I ordered a soup and it was served with everybody else's main dish so I ended up eating my main dish alone. The soup was good, pasta not so much. Other people in the group seemed to like their meat dishes. Service was ok, but... More

We ate here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The ambiance is so so, decor is nice but lighting is a bit bright. The service was terrific and friendly. Highlights were the excellent cevice (mentioned in many reviews), the tortilla soup, and the excellent Salmon with citrus/ginger sauce. Wine list was small but sufficient. Recommended.

Creative menu and a very good food! The ceviche is a must (the best so far we've tasted in Mexico); all the other dishes were also in the higher ground. It should be said that the food is a little bit more expensive than the average places in Guanajuato though...
