After a promising starter of tamales, the main courses were not good. Worst of all the lamb shank was obviously a reheated piece of meat. The kitchen however only managed to reheat the outer part. The middle of the meat was cold. Not only is this unpleasant, it's a health hazard. We were given a 10% discount, but I'm afraid... More

I have been to this place twice now and both times the food has been excellent! All really authentic, Mexican traditional dishes in generous portions. The enchiladas rojas and the taco plate (to share) were both amazing and the cucumber margaritas are out of this world! Friendly staff, amazing food, would thoroughly recommend booking though as the tables fill up... More

A belated review, since I went twice at the end of last year. I used to be a frequent diner and it was unquestionably my favourite Mexican restaurant in London. However on the last two visits I felt that the food standards had slipped; everything tasted mushier and less sharp than it used to. Perhaps we ordered badly. Likewise the... More

The service was excellent here. Particularly by Janet Casas. Lovely and friendly and helpful. The other waitress there was slightly grumpy and didn't seem to accommodating with my request to move tables so I could charge my phone for important business. That aside, the decor is beautiful, really inkeeping, the Ceviche is beautiful. That was my main course. The starter... More

We booked on the day & couldn't get a table before 9.30. We had to wait on arrival for a table to be free, but the staff were most apologetic. Our orders were taken promptly & we didn't have to wait long for our drinks& our shared starter of guacomole. It was superb! My main caourse of enchilladas al mole... More

Went to Mestizo a few weeks ago with my son....his choice for his birthday. As always the food was excellent with a great choice of authentic Mexican food. I still think it is the best in all of London. Upon walking in the owner recognized us and warmly welcomed us back and remembered it was my son's birthday....very nice...especially after... 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.
