“Excellent Food and Beautiful Presentation”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Mestizo is located on the second floor at #69 Pocitos. Tables are scattered throughout vast displays of beautiful pottery, which is also for sale! The food is really delicious and the service is good also. I am a professional chef, and I found their plate presentations to be some of the best I've seen anywhere. My husband had a delicious steak cooked to perfection. I had the grilled pork chops with apples and rosemary potatoes. The sauce reductions are excellent with every dish. Another dining companion tried the chicken breast pibil. It was tender & juicy. Diners are offered a choice of potatoes or vegetables with the main course. The tortilla soup was great--flavorful and delicious. The salads are innovative and the vinaigrettes are very nice. We did not try the desserts because we'd already eaten way too much! I would highly-recommend this upscale restaurant for business or casual dining. Prices are very low considering the food and service. Bar service available.

“Don't miss!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Perfect small menu of sophisticated food . For instance the house salad is 3 different lettuces with strawberries, blackberries, mango,and apples in a light fruit vinaigrette. I also had grilled pork loin with artichoke hearts and pancetta with new potatoes in rosemary, it was about 10 US dollars. The setting is lovely and the waiter couldn't have been nicer, it's on the same side of the street as the Rivera museum, about 2 blocks further. I will be back soon,
