great location, food excellent and atmosphere inviting. Small venue -with separate rooms. Owner chef - kitchen a bit slow, but who needs to rush?

Visited Mestizo for lunch last Wednesday, 1-11-17, our final day in GTO. The food and service were outstanding. Returned for dinner and were even more impressed. If you enjoy great food in a comfortable, unpretentious setting this restaurant should be a must in GTO. The chef Xavier Hernandez is creative and has a wonderful ability to prepare international dishes with... More

We had trouble finding this restaurant, which was so highly rated on TripAdvisor, but we're glad we did because we had a terrific lunch here. For the record, it's not more than a block from the Diego Museo museum and is on the same street. The setting is pleasant with some beautiful art on the walls, but the food is... More

Our family was staying for a week plus in San Miguel de Allende and took a day trip to beautiful Guanajuato. After walking the town, we had our afternoon meal here. From appetizers through dessert, we were not disappointed and recommend the sunny front room. The beef carpaccio is best-ever taste experience and the pork steaks superb, as is seared... More

The concierge at the W hotel rated this as her favorite. We agree! The ceviche and tortilla soup were the highlights and both the owner and chef made us fell very welcome. Take your time to enjoy the very large portions and fabulous flavors. 2 great bottles of Malbec, dinner and dessert with big tip...52$ seriously!

We just spent a week in Guanajuato, MX and ate at many restaurants most of which were good to excellent. We stumbled upon Mestizo on our last night and it was hands down the best. The fillet with a blue cheese sauce was cooked just right, tender, juicy and the right amount of sauce. The New York steak in a... More

The chef here has a sophisticated yet simple way of combining fresh ingredients and complementing their combinations with a fresh mix. We had the 4 course fixed price New Year's Eve dinner and loved everything . There were 2 options and we each tried one, so tried 8 things. We r from New Orleans so like to eat. This is... More

We had a very enjoyable meal while in Guanajuato at Mestizo. My wife had the shrimp and I had sea bass, which was the evening special. We also shared the appetizer flight. Meal summary? Appetizers were excellent, shrimp and sea bass were ok but nothing special. In terms of world prices, this restaurant is good value but certainly a bit... More

Salmon pasta was delicious as was the spinach salad, bread and zucchini condiment. This was one of our favorite meals in Guanajuato and it was reasonably priced. I highly recommend.

We spent most of our one day in Guanajuato wandering around the beautiful streets. We wanted somewhere good to eat, and luckily found Mestizo. 4 of us each had different meals, all fantastic. Tortilla soup, ceviche, steaks and a unique, incredible dessert that was like a caramel pudding- only so much better. Its making my mouth water just remembering it!!!... More
