    Visited with a friend, as I knew it was the margarita festival. We had the taco tray, which was recommended by the wait staff, & it was delicious! I'll admit that when it arrived at the table, I was worried that it wouldn't be filling but it actually was. The margarita menu had plenty to choose from & we both enjoyed the different ones that we ordered. This is actually one of my favourite restaurants in London & I always recommend it to people.

    I found the atmosphere to be very nice. The servers were friendly and attentive with no difficulty to ask for the bill at the end of my meal. The food felt very authentic and delicious. The tortillas came in a fabric holder which felt like I was at someones home. Lots of variety in the menu and a very tasty margarita.

    Booked through open table, got there on time, and we weren't sat till 15-20 mins later. The waiter who sat us down was friendly, but we couldn't order for a good while as it was so busy. I appreciate the waiters who eventually served us, but it was chaotic; management needed to control the situation. The food was good, the waiter was nice enough to let me sample the mole prior to ordering. The drinks were yummy! The shots were expensive, though; the mezcal is £8 a pop! A friend and I ordered two starters each, two cocktails and two shots, and it totalled up to £75 - quite pricey for what it is. I'm sure the rest of the menu is world-class; why else would Mestizo be so popular, but I won't be returning any time soon.

    Very tasteless low-end food. Halfhearted service especially from a male waiter who was too interested in talking to girls on a table he wasn’t serving, than doing his job. Lupita was so much better, (shame it closed) and wahaca may not be as authentic, but the quality and flavour is so much better. The female servers were good if hassled, and the mezcal margarita was excellent.

    We ate as a table for 4 at Mestizo last night. We were met at the door and seated promptly. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was amazing. Super flavoursome, and piping hot. The taco tray is a perfect way to try things if you’re unfamiliar. Drinks were awesome, the watermelon margarita was a favourite as was the mezcal margarita. Would definitely recommend.

    Nice, clean restaurant. Service was ok. Very friendly waitress, but guy clearing the table didn’t take all the plates, so we had to eat our mains with starters still on the table. Food wasn’t great. Empanadas tasted like they were frozen and microwaved. Mains were a bit tasteless. Cocktails were good. Price wasn’t too bad for what we had.

    The service was incredibly welcoming and warm. Food was spot on. I would recommend to make the mole spicier because it was too sweet for my taste but overall it was good. People attending for the first time liked the experience and they are happy to come back in the future.

    Very nice halal food. Plenty of options and good flavours. Nice atmosphere. Would benefit from more non-alcoholic drinks - beers, spirits, more mocktails, e.t.c. Spent quite a bit of time waiting for tap water to be brought to the table, after asking several times.
