Very authentic Mexican food just like my aunties would make! Service was great and pricing was very fair considering that a lot of the ingredients is imported. Ambience is nice and the shop by the side is really great.

Will go again 100% and thoroughly recommend to everyone.

Food was very good and different from the usual"chain" Mexican food. Waitress was very helpful with what to order. Would Def go again. Cocktails a little expensive but probably similar to most other places

Amazing food, amazing ambience only slightly put off by the feeling that they wanted us out as soon as possible with all plates and glasses being cleared as quickly as possible and the table being wiped down ready to be reset before we even left.

Having said that, the menu and the food were amazing.

Sensible covid regulations for buffet & there were lots on offer. Loved the mariachis, not sure if they are there every Sunday or as a one-off to start the year

Service was brilliant, atmosphere was lively and food was good - one small thing is that there wasn’t a very spicy option on the menu (my partner loves the spice!). Had a really enjoyable evening here, would recommend

Everything was wonderful, hospitality, food, atmosphere, but one thing that I didn’t like was paying for extra condiments especially since the bowls were so SMALL in the taco kit. Paying 1.20£ for each condiment was absolutely ridiculous. Especially because it was onions, coriander, and pico. Who does that???

It would have been better if the main courses had been hot.
The gratin on the pollo was Luke warm and not gratineed
A lack of care in the kitchen

Since we found Mestizo accidentally last year, the kids insist on it being a part of any trip to London. We're working our way our way through the menu, with the taco tray being an ideal way for them to try new flavours/heat. Service is always welcoming & efficient, and we look forward to coming back soon.

After reading some of the more recent negative reviews, my husband and I were hesitant especially because my husband is Mexican and can be a tough critic. But we are so happy we tried Mestizo because it was wonderful! Service was fast and everyone was kind and welcoming. The ambiance and decor were very well-done and great vibes. We loved the Mexican market next door as well. We appreciated the free small chips and salsa bite at the beginning. Also loved that they had aguas frescas even though their jamaica could have been stronger. For food, we had enchiladas. My husband got the chicken mole ones and I had just verde chicken ones. Both were hot and fresh and a good amount for the price. Beans and rice were also seasoned well and we loved the queso fresco as that is hard to find in the UK. Our only slight complaint is that we asked for water and expected just a carafe of tap water but were instead given a bottle of purified water and charged for it. Just something to remember for the future ! Otherwise, everything was fantastic and would go again!
