Mestizo is always awesome, and authentic ! Food is so tasty and fresh, the portions are a great size and the service is on point. Deffo one of my fave restaurants (it's actually what made me start liking Mexican food). Dimitri is a great waiter too. Oh and the margaritas are YUM!

We’re from Los Angeles and Mestizo is more authentic than most Mexican restaurants in LA. The staff are upbeat, seem to be having fun, and as a result the Service is excellent. It felt like we made friends who happen to be Mexican culinary experts!

First try of the Sunday Buffet. Loved it. The food is varied, and super tasty. Even "having" to go downstairs for the tacos, provided a bit of mid meal exercise :) This was my second visit, and it was for a family member's birthday. Would definitely go again. Would definitely do the Sunday Buffet again. The staff and service are great!

Staff were lovely and drinks were great. Food was disappointing. Very bland and the carnitas was far too dry for me or my table’s liking. Atmosphere was lovely and I’d come back for drinks at the bar. Food average London prices but not good enough to justify coming back for. A real shame as I’d been looking forward to some authentic Mexican cuisine!

The queso appetizer was half-solid when it arrived to the table and we ordered it with chorizo and it was missing. Rather than prepare a new dish, they just topped some chorizo on top and brought the half solid cheese back to the table. Service was lacking a bit. Great food and ambience and the rest of the experience was nice.

An enjoyable evening with a friend for dinner. Ordered the chicken and beef signature dish - was not expecting them to come mixed together. Could have also come with hot sauce/ lime, but delicious nevertheless.

All the food was delicious, we are fans of Mexican food and have been to Mexico several times mostly to eat. As we weren’t very hungry, my husband and I shared the Enchilada Cancun and our brother and sister-in-law had the chicken and pork tacos, I then regretted having shared with my husband because I was left craving for more. We asked for hot sauce and the waiter brought us a tray with four different ones, one better than the other. We also had margaritas which were superb! And Marisol, I think that she is the manager but I'm not sure as she was doing several roles, was absolutely charming! The shop next door is also wonderful, and you can find the most varied Mexican products.
We are really looking forward to returning soon!

Food was fantastic. Felt as close to what you’ll get in authentic North American restaurants. Only gripe is that waitstaff were a bit curt and didn’t pay fulfill a simple request made through open table. This meant that this just became everyday dining instead of a special occasion that it was meant to be.

I truly enjoyed eating Mestizo, I’ve been Mexico twice and I can say this was truly Authentic Mexican cuisine down to the alcoholic.

The service was great my sister had different dietary needs eg gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant. The staff catered to our needs and even with the dietary needs there was still a lot for them to choose from.

The Margarita we’re lovely and came in different fruit flavours. Nachos my fav and good portion size to share.

The main meal portions huge and great value , we even squeezed dessert and that was also great.

This will be a place we truly come back to, the service of staff wonderful and the interior of the restaurant complemented the theme.

When fancying Mexican food, Mestizo is the place to go. Delicious food and a lot of variety, not just tacos! I have tried several dishes in the menu and not one has disappoint! As a vegetarian, I love the fact that a lot of dishes can be made for this dietary requirement. Love it!
