Just a great evening! We had a later dinner(7:30 pm) so the restaurant was not very busy. A guitarist played quietly in the corner. Service was attentive but far from “smothering “. We both had “house special” entrees; pork stew and octopus. Unique and very good. For desert “flan”; very good. Based on our first visit to Guillermo’s we would highly recommend this restaurant!

Food, drinks and service were outstanding. We chose to eat on the patio on a warm evening, where only a few tables were occupied. The dining room was packed. I started with the Periquitos Rellenos with shrimp, and ordered the shrimp spiral wrapped in bacon for my main course. I have to say these were the best two shrimp dishes I have had in recent memory. Just fabulous! My wife ordered the carnitas with salsa verde and raved about it as well. The margaritas were the best I have found in the Valley. We will be back to try something else on the menu.

Highly recommended and yet very disappointing outcome. The food was late (we waited over an hour) and when it came it was not what we expected. The bacon wrapped shrimp looked nothing like it and the shrimp themselves were not fully cooked. The Chili verde was approx a tablespoon of meat on the side of the plate and worth nowhere near what we paid for it. To compensate for the incredibly long wait we got another basket of chips (yeah!). I would not recommend this restaurant to any friends contemplating a visit.

We love Guillermos! They have fantastic service, delicious chips, and the salsa is so good, I could just drink it from the bowl. Their fajitas are my favorite and plentiful. I just ate my leftovers last night and they were just as delicious. I love that Guillermo personally comes to your table to see how everything was. He engages in conversation and is quite friendly. We love that this is a family owned restaurant and everything is freshly homemade!It is definitely our go-to Mexican Restaurant!

we didn't know what to expect from a typical Mexican restaurant, but were very surprised by the creative cuisine, especially their signature prawn dish. Service was very good, cocktail drinks were a plenty on the list, and the overall ambience added to a very nice evening.

Unfortunately my husband ordered steak. He said it was not a good cut of meat (tough) and also over-cooked. I would never order steak at a Mexican restaurant. My pork carnitas (?) was excellent.

While the setting is nothing special, the food was delicious and seemed more authentic than your typical Mexican restaurant. Great, friendly service and yummy food! I had the chicken tacos - the meat was finely chopped so tasty with fresh cilantro and guacamole. My mother had the bacon-wrapped shrimp house specialty - what an unusual dish and presentation! Also very good.
