Partner and I visited Mestizo two times this week and were amazed at not only the quality of food, but also the service. We had the flautas, nachos con chorizo, taco tray and coconut cheesecake for dessert it was sublime! We loved the watermelon margaritas.
The most delicious dish was the chicken soup, it made all of us cry because reminded us of our grandmother, the soup tasted the same as what she makes us when we go to our country.

This is easily one of, if not the best dinner we’ve ever eaten. I cannot recommend this place enough! Such a warm and welcoming environment!
And the staff… we have no words. Super kind and worked as a team.
Great atmosphere with really nice people.

The food is good. Cute place and nice to have some Mexican in London. The molcajete is a volcanic rock bowl you can make guacamole in but they also serve it in Mexico with many kids of meat and cheese. I find with the cheese it is too heavy but Mestizo does have a vegan version. My husband loved the cochinita pibil and his enchiladas as well.

Our waiter was not well educated on the menu. When we asked questions he just read the menu back to us. Maybe his English is not great. They have a cute store with EVERYTHING Mexican . Even real tortillas! And painted Calaveras and clothes and frozen food to bring home and SALMAS. The woman that worked there sadly ignored all and was not friendly or helpful. It was a Friday night, maybe she was tired.

Authentic Mexican food and save setting with tables spaced out to allow for reasonable separation of diners.

The Mexican supermarket next door was also a treat to explore.

Great Mexican food in the heart of London. We’ve been to Mestizo many times over the last 4-5 years and it’s never disappointed us. The food can be spicy or not depending on what you order and there are lots of different dishes, including several gluten free or vegan options.

Lovely meal and would go back but found a couple members of the staff a little rude. Also when I arrived they said I only have the table for 1.5 hours because theyre busy and have another booking - this really isn't acceptable dining time and I wasn't impressed! This should be stipulated on the booking form prior to booking if this is always the case. Food was great though and really good for allergens as they have different menus.

Loved it, everything was great. Drinks were too good. Big portions so order one item less than you think you need.

Great service staff too.

Absolutely lovely ambience, nice wide variety on the menu, able to select by food preferences and needs. Friendly for vegetarians and vegans. Good variety of drinks. The food was good however not as tasty as we would have expected for what we payed. Moreover, I ordered a food from the lactose free menu but my food arrived with cheese on top. For me that’s not a big deal, but it might be for people with allergies. The service was very friendly but a little rushed. Overall good experience.

Really lovely margaritas and nice food but we waited an hour for our starters to come out and no one even said sorry! Had to ask to order our mains and more drinks and after taking my drink order the waitress didn’t ask my partner if they wanted a drink and walked off! Was okay but won’t be recommending this anytime soon.
