It's a clean, fast and friendly service. The restaurant has nice ambience and good spots to sit. Would certainly recommend for celebrations/special occasions.

A hidden gem. Walking around the area it’s pretty dead but walk into this places and it’s buzzy and full. The food if brilliant and very authentic vs other Mexican restaurants in London. Lots of Spanish being spoken.

Disappointing experience. I heard a lot of good things about the food here and had really high hopes but we thought food was very bland, chicken was dry and tacos were very disappointing. Was lacking a lot of flavor.

What a lovely spot! We went for brunch on a Saturday, and had a great experience. I had the set menu with vegan options, and my partner ordered some of the small plates and everything was delicious. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and I couldn't recommend it more.

After not going to restaurants for a while it was great to get back out to Mestizo and support the during such uncertain times. The food as always was amazing and they really went the extra mile to make sure we felt safe during the current pandemic, with hand sanitising stations by the door, clear markings on the floor and social distanced tables.

Mestizo is one of my favourite Mexican restaurants in London and I highly recommend you check it out if you enjoy Mexican food.

What a treat! A Mexican restaurant with some authentic delicious dishes that stand out from others I have been to in London. The service was great and the atmosphere was fun. If they have it as a special, definitely have the Chile en Nogada!

Very delicious Mexican food. Every bite (and sip) is a burst of flavour! A bit on the expensive side, but considering the quality and the unique ingredients used, Mestizo is definitely worth a visit.

Excellent service - the place is very well decorated, the food is delicious and the staff went out of their way to ensure I was happy! I had accidentally asked for something that wasn’t on the menu and our server asked the kitchen if they could make it anyway (they did and it tasted amazing!). Definitely recommend.

Wasn't my first time, won't be my last time. I love food at Mestizo, so many delicious options to try and i haven't been disappointed with anything yet in the past. I also love it that it's next to a market to stock up on some Mexican sauces or other foods.

Really enjoyed the Mestizo special with the meat in the hot stone bowl, everything was packed with flavour and the salsa piccante selection on the side was definitely worth it. Cucumber margarita was also delicious, will have to come back to try the jalapeño version!

The service was impeccable, everyone is super friendly and welcoming it feels just like home, the flavour of the food is very tasty but I feel like for a buffet is a little bit on the pricy side, may be by reducing the cover you could increase the feeling of value. Definitely coming back but may be for a la carte dinning, also, thank you so much for all the effort to keep the place safe from COVID you are doing a great job!

Food was tasteless, the main taco tray dish all the meats were cold, the nachos dish had barely any crips and was soaked in cheese. I asked for guacamole and the waiter didn’t bring me any, asked for grated cheese brought me feta cheese. Staff struggle to understand what was being said to them understand this is a Mexican restaurant but then language barrier made it difficult to communicate. Overall my meal cost 103 as was such a waste of money very disappointed

Genuine Mexican food that tastes great but is overpriced. As such, I chose not to pay the discretionary service charge. Despite it clearly staying on the receipt that it was discretionary, the waiter and manager were indignant I chose not to pay the service charge and came over to my table demanding an explanation. Great food but poor tact and discretion on the staff. This ruined my experience. Had this not happened, I would have given them five stars.

Service was great ! Friendly folks who were very attentive . Only had tacos which tasted lovely too. Drinks were well prepared (especially the margaritas on the margarita festival menu) and definitely not watered down or sugar laden. Will be back to try other dishes.

Always love going to this place. The Taco Tray is delightful to share between a couple or a few friends. Service is outstanding in my view, our waiter was very friendly and knew the menu well. The ambiance is good, with soft Mexican music playing in the background adding to the whole experience. Would definitely recommend Mestizo to others! Well done guys :)

The team at Mestizo have done a simply outstanding job of setting the restaurant up for an easy and enjoyable dining experience during this pandemic. I felt safe, at ease and completely relaxed throughout the whole meal. The place is spotless and the measures that have been put in place seem to have gone above and beyond to look after you whilst you’re dining out!

To top it off the food is still outstanding and the team are a delight. I honestly cannot recommend this restaurant more, it has been my favourite place to go eat at for years, and they way they have handled the reopening of the restaurant solidifies thats.

If you want amazing drinks, outstanding authentic food, a safe environment and a fabulous value for money, you got it all here!
