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

This place is pricier, but well worth it! The salmon was delicious. Great presentation of dishes. One of the best restaurants in town.

Went here based on the reviews and the proximity to our hotel. We were not disappointed. The steak and pork chop were cooked to perfection. The steak came with a blue cheese sauce and the chops came with an apple topping. We started off with a Caesar salad which we shared. Finished with a chocolate cake with berries and chocolate...

We were in the mood for something a little more creative and upscale after days of taco stands and tortas. Mestizo fit the bill, though it is not fancy pants dining, it is very comfortable and relaxing with very friendly and attentive staff. We ordered the shrimp and fish ceviche and cheese enmoladas with mole for starters. Both were excellent.... More

Great dinner. We both got steaks and I got a salad that was excellent and my wife had onion soup. I would return.

This quiet and attractive little restaurant deserves all the praise it's received. My husband and I ate here twice and tried for three times, but were disappointed to find it closed on Monday, our last day in town. We so wanted our last meal in Guananjuato to be memorable, as we knew it would be at Mestizo. My husband loved... More

I visited again Mestizo and it was superb, the chef and owner is trying new recipes and it was fenomenal. I had the Octopus special and it was the best I have ever had, grilled to perfection and creamy roasted potatoes, simply elegant. My guest had the Salmon with ginger and citrus, like before and she mentioned it was as... More
