Mestizo, Mexican Restaurant opened in March 2005 and was the first to bring authentic Mexican cuisine back to London. It is a stylish, elegant restaurant serving traditional cuisine. With Mexican owners, chefs and staff, we are perhaps London’s most authentic Mexican restaurant. Our elegant bar, displaying over 260+ tequila & mezcal. It is the largest Tequila bar in the UK. Our Mexican Sunday Buffet Brunch is our chef's special day. All buffet style with a large selection of traditional Mexican dishes each Sunday. Our separate ‘DOWNSTAIRS’ at Mestizo lounge bar, provides a different atmosphere and can be used for cocktail parties, product launches, dining and corporate or private occasions. For all groups over 8 people we ask for a cc number to confirm. For CHristmas bookings we require a deposit of £5.00 per person before the reservation is confirmed. Our Mexican Thursday (Jueves Mexicano) is a popular weekly gathering of the younger Mexicans in London. From 7pm with a £5.00 cover.

great time. It's very hard to do authentic Mexican in London. They do a great job and the Mezcal/Tequila options are quite nice.

I have been twice to this place and I can see a big difference in the quality of food this second time. I was very disappointed with the quality of the food. Although the service was really great, it is unfortunate that the quality of their service doesn't match up to the quality of their food.

Exceptional food and drinks! The portions were huge and great value for money. The team were excellent in handling social distancing, cleanliness and safety. They gave us a new set of cutlery in a plastic bag each serving and all staff had masks on. There was a huge range of dishes to choose from and all were authentically Mexican. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

Great Mexican spot. Lovely food from starters to desserts and a nice menu set up for sharing. Cocktails were good too. We had a lovely server (the American guy - didn't get his name) who was so bubbly and a pleasure to deal with, who gave us some menu recommendations

Fantastic service. Food was incredible. Everyone involved should be proud of the service and food delivered. In a post covid world this industry may scare or worry some of the safety of themselves and fellow guests. I assure anyone thinking of dinning here I felt safe. My partner and I were sufficiently spaced from other dinners and staff were efficient in their interactions with us. We were also recommended to space our courses out (time wise) as if everything came at once, as we asked, we may not enjoy it so much. Also if we were full after the first course we could cancel the second. We did take the second course as we enjoyed the first so much.
If you want a safe eating experience with friendly, knowlegable, helpful staff and great food I'd recommend heading here.

This was my second time here because the first time (back in 2018!) was decent. However, very disappointed that we didn't have a good meal this time round! We ordered a classic margarita, a jalapeño margarita, pollo con mole tamales, pollo pibil tacos and bistek tacos.

The tamales were really average - plenty of corn, barely any meat. we could taste the mole but there was literally no pollo in them!

The pollo pibil tacos were delicious - chicken was succulent and full of flavour. Loved the corn taco shells too. The bistek (steak) tacos however were awful! Super dry, overcooked, very chewy.

The drinks were okay. They use El Jimador tequila which isn't the best quality if you want good margaritas. Which is disappointing when we make better margaritas at home.

All in all, would not recommend. However maybe things would be different if we tried the other mains, but I do feel something the basics should always be done right at a good restaurant.
