Mestizo, Mexican Restaurant opened in March 2005 and was the first to bring authentic Mexican cuisine back to London. It is a stylish, elegant restaurant serving traditional cuisine.

Our Mexican Sunday Buffet Brunch is our chef's special day. All buffet style with a large selection of traditional Mexican dishes each Sunday. Our separate ‘DOWNSTAIRS’ at Mestizo lounge bar, provides a different atmosphere and can be used for cocktail parties, product launches, dining and corporate or private occasions. For all groups over 8 people we ask for a cc number to confirm. For CHristmas bookings we require a deposit of £5.00 per person before the reservation is confirmed. Our Mexican Thursday (Jueves Mexicano) is a popular weekly gathering of the younger Mexicans in London. From 7pm with a £5.00 cover.

    I had never eaten at Mestizo before but it was recommended to me as a great Halal Mexican and I was not disappointed! The staff were very friendly and attentive. They explained the menu options clearly. I had chicken tinga tacos to start and there was plenty of filling. For main I had the pollo arriero which was amazing! Everything was delicious and I will definitely eat there again next time I am in London.

    Great find. It was really packed at 6PM on a Thursday so I think that says it all. Great value wine and delicious food. Lots of things that I haven't tried before. Highly recommend this place. Stereotypically, we got churros for dessert - they were fantastic!

    The cocktails and food were delicious, the lowlands margarita in particular was delicious as were the tacos. We also really enjoyed flights of tequila. I've been looking for a new Mexican restaurant and I've definitely found it. I'll be back for sure. The only downside was the service. Each time we would ask a particular waiter for something he would forget and we'd have to follow up with him multiple times or ask another server. This became frustrating.

    Every time I come here I am treated like an old friend or a member of the family. The service is excellent, casual but attentive. Recommendations on food are always very well thought through. The food choice and quality are amazing as are the margaritas. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an authentic taste of Mexico.

    Such a relief to find good Mexican food! Drinks and food were delicious, everyone who served us was very nice and sounded like native Spanish speakers (although we didn't ask where they were from). They checked on us often, but usually without speaking so as not to disturb us. An easy walk from Euston station.

    We went quite early, at 5.30 pm so not very crowded and loud, the restaurant is beautiful and the service was excellent. We ordered 2 starters (nachos and queso fundido) and mains (mixed tray for 2) and we couldn't arrive to eat the mains as the portions were very generous. The cocktails were really good, overall as experience was absolutely fantastic. We will definitely be back!

    Food and cocktails were delicious. Service was alright. Our main waiter was polite. The boss got mad at us because we denied extra tacos. We had enough and didn't need more. It was a weird situation. We also had to wait very long for the desert. Besides this, it was a good experience and good food.
