We were initially told that the 2 hour window had passed and the table was needed! There was a reasonable delay between our starters and mains which resulted in us going over the 2 hour period. This was pointed out and we’re given another 15minutes! This did sour our experience! Having said that the staff who served us were very helpful and kind. The food and experience otherwise was memorable.

I ended up biting into it before realising. Tried to assure me it was veggie before proceeding to apologise. Brought extra starters and apologised again. Dishes ordered were fair. Drinks ok. Had to send a cocktail back as it had too much alcohol and tasted terrible. Had the vegetarian taco tray and the tres leches, both were really good. Overall experience was very mixed. Still charged us for the tamales! No goodwill discount offered. We couldn’t be bothered to argue and so paid and left.

Our servers refused to re sit us even after mentioning the ants. Paid in cash and they refused to give us our change. Servers argue with you and couldn't understand what a simple drinks order of Malibu and coke. Will definitely not be going back.

Very impressed with the authentic menu and helpful owner who offered to change our dish if we didn’t like the special sauce. Service was a little slow but there was a large birthday party group eating so understandable. Would recommend for anyone looking for authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price.

After returning this year, we felt missing the food and ambience of mexico. So we looked and looked for restaurants. In the last 2 months we went to 3 Good rated Mexican Restaurants, and this one was definitely the best. The flavour, the smell the technique was incredibly the same as many places in Mexico. Definitely worth trying

Delicious interactive meal and super fun atmosphere-very loud but that is perfect for our loud family. It was incredibly busy so service was sometimes slow but it didnt matter

I lived in Mexico for a year and a trip to Mestizo is like a return trip - right down to the cebollitas. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, too. Frankly, I didn't want to leave at the end of the evening.

Salad was poor $9 for a bit of shredded lettuce, 4 small cactus strips, tomato and dressing; Tamales was good. Tacos were OK, a bit bland (barbacoa had little seasoning) in general. And you had to make the taco yourself. Drinks were good and service friendly, but there are better places in London. I wish I could have given a better review as it was a nice, fun place.
