This lovely restaurant is worth the taxi ride up the mountain on windy little roads ~ wonderful view of the whole city. The food is imaginative and wonderful, and the corn cake desert is very good. We highly recommend going out there for dinner!

Had a great meal. The kale tacos were unbelievable. Great atmosphere. Small restaurant. Recommend making reservations since they only have a few tables

Casa Mercedes is rated the #1 restaurant in Guanajuato for a reason. It is truly a great restaurant. The inventiveness of the cuisine, the way flavors are played off of each other, the fresh take on Mexican food in an upscale way, and the execution of the dishes are brilliant in every way. Add a really good wine list and... More

We came here on a Friday evening at 7:00pm and made a booking, which would not have been necessary as there were plenty of free tables. The restaurant is very beautiful, and depending on where you sit, you also have nice view over parts of the city. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. She recommended the house specialty, a...

This was our first visit to Casa Mercedes. Atmosphere and service are very good. All of our appetizers (3) were very good. I had the main course of Chamorro which was beautifully prepared and totally met my expectations. My wife's dish was not so good. She ordered a steak, the vacio cut. Unfortunately the beef had so much gristle that... More

We arrived for lunch at 2:15 and the place was empty. We were told to make reservations because the place was smallish. So we were a bit worried...but it was weed energy. We had a good waiter, Emmanuel, but he did bring the two soups we ordered when he brought the entrees for the others. The soups were delicious, especially... More

One of the best restaurants, along with Mestizo, we visited during our 6 days in Guanajuato. All dishes were authentic upscale Mexican with superb quality ingredients and appealing presentation. Drink with Mezcal very good, and the pork shank was off the bone good. Dessert was bunuelos with honey and coconut whipped cream. Elegant dining room, had a table by the... More

Breath taking cuisine. Perfect balance, huge personality, exploring and mastering great combinations of regional products. Drinks are unbelievable. Owner is entertaining and warmly welcomes you. Great ambience, guitar live music on the background. This is a must visit place, a true sin if you miss it
