We had heard good things about this restaurant. We were staying far from it but decided to try it on two different occasions. Their website says they are open from 1:00-10:00 pm today, for example, so we walked all the way there. We were there...More

I've been to Mestizo twice, food is consistently great, and so is the service, too. Will definitely go back again!

The food was amazing. We were surprised since the waitress told us they mostly serve tourists. This should be filled with locals. Amazing food and great service!

We had the pork with orange barbecue and the octopus. Both were great. Portions are really big. Unless you are a big eater recommend sharing

Great jewel in downtown Guanajuato. Having Founder and Chef Javier interacting with you before cooking, is a plus plus. Try the Chistorra (spanish chorizo) and the Chuleton de Cerdo (they offer 4 different ones- based on various ingredients).

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
You need to know that Sunday afternoon in Mexico is family time, and that almost all restaurants are closed - EARLY. Mestizo is one of the few that is not closed early on Sunday. You screwed up by not knowing to come earlier. Don't blame the restaurant. That is Mexico. It's not suburban USA. I HIGHLY recommend that if you ever return to Guanajuato, go to Mestizo on any other night (except Monday). I doubt you will be disappointed. It is THE favorite of the few gringos who live here. You can't get a much better recommendation than that.

Most restaurants close early on Sundays and closed on Mondays, it's too bad but that is what they do. Mestizo is one of them unfortunately. But it's good and why not try to go when you can enjoy a nice meal. There are other... More
