One of my favourite restaurants in London. The staff are fantastic - welcoming and very attentive. Food is excellent - great flavours and an option for any palate! And great choice for drinks too!

The food was tasty. We asked for it to be not too spicy, and the dishes the staff recommended were indeed very mild. We definitely plan to come back again.

I've been in Mestizo several times before the Pandemic. I can tell the restaurant has been struggling as the food menu changed. It used to be much better in the past.

Birthday ,The lady Who was our server was so helpful, warm and hospitable, she Realised that it was one of our friends birthday and she went out of the way to make it even more special for us, a very nice thing was also that the owner of the restaurant specially went from table to table asking if everyone was comfortable and enjoying the food .
Very warm team

myself and 4 others went here after hearing good reviews. we were kind of shocked by how bad the food was, the night got more and more comical as we went. the chicken was soaked in a cheap tomato watery sauce and didn't taste of anything. The other starters and taco build your own kit was provided with disappointing shrivelled veggies and the same bland chicken,no salt, no pepper, no kick, nothing, just a cardboard texture seeped in watery tomato sauce.

alot of the veg looked wilted, especially the coriander and onions in the taco building kit, it's not cheap either.

most of the dishes come with a corn bread tortilla wrap which was stale and awful. Even the nachos we were served when we got our table were soft and stale.

As someone who has Peruvian, Mexican and South American food regularly (Pachamama, Chotto Matte, Lobos Tapas, Wahaca), I was shocked.

seems like a bad day to go on Sunday when the kitchen needs to clear out old food. we won't ever be coming baco

Easily the best, most authentic Mexican food in London. Be sure to stop at the market next door on your way out as they have an amazing mix of ingredients to make your own dishes at home.

It was our first time here but definitely not last. It was the best Mexican I have had in a really long time - definitely the best in London. Food is authentic Mexican, service was absolutely amazing - we were served by Pao and Dima. Both very lovely and funny! We loved the food and drinks were great too.

It was my bday and I got a special drink and the whole restaurant was singing happy bday - it was very sweet. We will definitely come back. This place is 10/10!

Food was ok but vegan options were a bit bland (can’t speak for the meat options) and felt overpriced for what they were. Service was friendly but instead of giving us a heads up that they needed the table back, they just brought the bill over before we could order desserts.

Three leches pudding was absolutely delicious. However it was my partner’s birthday and i asked if it would be possible to get a candle or a writing on the plate when making a reservation and none of that happened :/

Mestizo was recommended by Mexican friends. Really hospitable and great location. Staff were all super friendly and made great recommendations. All of our food was amazing, especially the churros at the end. Will definitely be paying many more visits!

The food is literally AMAZING! So tasty and the portions are perfect.
The staff is really nice and helpful (as it was my first time in that restaurant) they explained to us the menu and helped to decide what to order.
The atmosphere is cool I definitely gonna go back again!
Also the price is reasonable for drink and food!
Literally loved my experience over there as I went to celebrate my birthday with a couple of friends.
At the end they came with a shot of tequila and candles, so so nice.
Thank you to the staff

Have been here thrice before but was a bit disappointed with the food this time. Chose 2 set menu and two ala carte but the set menu was ordinary, the quesadillas were less than ordinary, the flautas were average and the chef’s selection was a mosh mash. The service and drinks were good as was the ambience as usual.

Food quality was surprisingly poor. Lots of choice for vegetarians but honestly it was worse quality than Las Iguanas, which is saying something. Maybe the meat is better... but this was a huge disappointment and the worst Mexican food I've had in London.
