Mezcalito Chelsea is a true hidden gem. It has a secluded 60m2 garden with a retractable roof & a generous array of heat lamps making it an enjoyable location throughout all 4 seasons.

Whether you fancy a bottomless brunch with a Mexican twist (Sat & Sun from 12-3 PM), one of our signature cocktail (Happy Hour - Tues through Friday from 5-8 PM) or a pit stop before your night out ( we're open Fridays and Saturdays till 12:30AM); Mezcalito is the destination for you.


We offer an extensive list of Mexican tapas & tacos all priced between 8-18£. Larger groups will also find our Fiesta Platter quite tempting as it includes 2 tacos of your choice, 1 guacamole and 2 of our ceviches tropical all for 49£.

Come by to pop on a sombrero & enjoy a shot of tequila or 5!

Really enjoyed our evening here. The people who run this place are outstanding hosts. The place is lovely to spend an evening chatting, not too busy or too loud, and the food is good. My only quibble is that the jug of Margarita seems very expensive at £35.

Mezcalito is the best Mexican restaurant in London! They have fantastic food, great margaritas, and impeccable customer service. The ambiance is super fun and they have the best music! My friend and I are studying abroad from Southern California and we’re homesick so decided to get Mexican food, and Mezcalito is the best Mexican restaurant we have been to in the UK. We have been a couple of times and they always remember us and greet us warmly. Their customer service is amazing and they always go above and beyond to make us happy. I highly recommend their tacos, they are traditional street tacos, and their strawberry and mango margaritas are so refreshing. They also have great chips and guacamole. The churros are very traditional with melted chocolate! Bottom line this place is the best and I highly recommend!

Being from NY, we are accustomed to Mexican and this places food was subpar. The food flavor was bland and didn’t feel authentic. It was also over priced for the quality. I was very disappointed!

Outstanding place that deserves all the praise it has been getting. The experience was fantastic from the kind staff, to the lovely traditional hats displayed around the venue to the food/drink. The menu & portions are very good in my opinion especially if you're looking for a mix of small to medium plates. I loved the Tacos "Al Pastor" and "Tacos de Camaron" out of everything I tried. The figuras de salmon is tasty and comes with chunks of fresh salmon and figs. The mole comes with a Mexican prehispanic sauce - it has become my favorite sauce ever since trying it. Try the Taco Tuesday deal for £7.00 - comes with six different possible selection of tacos to try. My friends and I had ordered one of each to share as well as other plates on the tapas menu. The margarita menu was so delicious and offered different tastes compared to others I’ve had in the UK. Come here and try Mexican food it’s amazing. The servers were helpful and came out frequently.

Mezcalito imparts a fresh, unconventional, and exotic atmosphere that creates a cozy and comfortable dining experience. It finds a great balance between fancy and casual making it an appropriate dining setting for friends, family, or even a date night!

Built with distinctively Mexican features, the cactus-themed walls accompanied by authentic Spanish music give the quaint restaurant a vibrant yet warm radiance reminiscent of the central American country.

We were especially fond of the garden lounge. Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, however, we were very impressed by the hospitable staff, the fantastic cocktails, and the delicious (and reasonably priced) bottomless brunch all of which help this hidden gem in projecting a special nonnative feel.

I would suggest trying out the passion fruit or mango margaritas for drinks! 10/10 would recommend!

Excellent service, attentive, explained and recommended dishes. Great Pambazo de Langosta. The food was first class, portions reasonable for the price. Well prepared, seasoned and nicely presented dishes. The place was packed with people when I went. Truly a great place to share a gourmet meal with co-worker or friends while enjoying well prepared drinks. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back again.

Few choices on the menu, some really odd combos that are not well executed. Way overpriced for what it is. Did not appreciate the fact that when asked “did you like your meal”, we gave our honest opinion, to which the answer was “yes but there are so many ingredients that the flavour is really complicated “. If not ready to take feedback, better not ask for it.

Thank you for your feedback - we're sorry you had a poor experience. We've spoken to our staff and it's our understanding you'd ordered our Móle Dish at the time. Móle is a traditional sauce used in Mexican cuisine that contains 20+ ingredients, including chili peppers and chocolate (the bitter-sweetness of the chocolate subtly counteracts the spiciness of the peppers). We apologize for making you feel like you could not share your honest opinion & would definitely love to host you again soon.

We went early with our little ones and were so impressed with the friendly service and delicious food. It’s hard to find excellent Mexican in London and we were very happily surprised! Would be fun for cocktails or brunch as well.

This place is amazing it's hidden and speakeasy like right in the middle of Chelsea - off the king's road. My friends and I went - we we're able to order a entree and had unlimited bloody marys and prosecco. I personally only had the bloody marys and was able to get my money's worth. We later moved from the inside area to the outside garden that has a retractable roof and is heated by heat lamps. We all continued to drink there even after the bottomless brunch was over which is very telling. I would highly recommend this spot and think that because of it's hidden nature it's even more appealing to those that know about it.

Half of the menu is Tacos and after we sat and ordered drinks, the waiter comes and tell us they do not have tacos. He should have said this as soon as we entered as we were there to have dinner and what mexican place does not have tacos? We would have walked out and not spent 40 GBP on drinks!
