The food here was very disappointing. Given the positive reviews perhaps there are some good things on the menu and we just got unlucky. (I had something with the mole sauce). The food was flavorless and I got quite sick that night. The other people...More

We booked to come here for a birthday treat on a Saturday lunchtime. On arrival we had to wait 15 minutes for our drinks order to be taken and another ten minutes for them to arrive. I chose a soft drink called a jarrito which...More

I went with my family for Sunday brunch and had a great time! You pay a fixed price and eat as much as you want from an excellent selection of Mexican meals, prepared on a buffet basis. Tacos were prepared on the spot with your...More

I found Mestizo 12 years ago, not long after it first opened. I moved away from London to the southeastern U.S. (where there are plenty of authentic Mexican restaurants), but have craved going back to Mestizo for years. I finally got the chance to go...More

Really enjoyed our visit here as we find Mexican food very poor in the U.K. (my husband is Mexican). The quest for a good mole here is a long one but it ended here. He said it tasted like real mole and loved it. I...More

This was probably the best I tried in London. Highly recommend if you’re a fan of a real Mexican - rather than the usual tex-mex.

One of the companies I work with had a business strategy day on Saturday, and organised a meal afterwards here as a thank you for attending. We had to choose our three courses in advance (several weeks ago) from a restricted menu, which was understandable...More

Strange location for a restaurant, but we went because of the reviews. Not busy at lunchtime, service slow. Music - too loud and makes you want to eat quickly and get out. Food: Very disappointing. Beef chimichanga - average and tasted was sour. Not sure...More

I wasn’t a fan of Mexican restaurants - until I came here! It’s great. A pleasantly airy room where there’s crisp white linen table cloths and yet it’s OK to eat some of the dishes with your fingers - few restaurants tick both of those...More

Description
MESTIZO is the concept of a group of Mexican’s to bring to London a restaurant-bar offering a fine and authentic Mexican cuisine. The name MESTIZO suggests “mezcla” or “fusion”, a term that was utilised principally to designate the decedents of indigenous Mexicans with Spaniards. We have chosen this name to symbolise of the origins of what constitutes our gastronomy Our mission at MESTIZO is to bring to London the best that Mexican food has to offer, while at the same time, becoming the restaurant for local neighbours and the many Mexicans and Latin Americans living in London. MESTIZO shall also be a space for the promotion and diffusion of Mexican culture.
