Jewel of a find in Chelsea. Food is absolutely delicious; particularly the ceviche - AMAZING.
Service is extraordinary. Warm, accommodating and fabulous recommendations. Laura - the manager - is just wonderful.
Overall, Mezcalito is a great place for groups and families. The space is beautiful; the back garden is gorgeous.
Highly recommended.

A tastefully decorated restaurant with a gorgeous garden. Seating is uncomfortable, pouffe chairs with no backs outside & wooden benches inside. Food is very fresh & tasty. Service friendly but can be hard to get their attention. Music too loud.

Bloody brilliant. Really friendly vibe from the owner and staff. Buzzing atmosphere, and the outside backs onto the Chelsea garden centre which is nice. Food is gorgeous, although the tacos are not big. Drinks are very seductive and well-made, and there is an insane list of tequilas to choose from! Very enjoyable experience.

The only good thing was the margarita and the environment.
Service disaster on the verge of offensive with staff taking off plate while eating even after we told them to wait..
ridiculously small portion and Tacos soft and tasteless.
Margarita superb!
All in all great for drinks with friends but not for dinner.

The place is very nice, it has an outdoor area with plants and they play great latin music. The service is also amazing, very attentive staff. Such a shame the food is not good, and I am very easy to please. The food is one of the worse Mexican food I have ever tried, Even if I got this from a cheap delivery place I would think its low standards, so I think a restaurant in Chelsea a should do far better! Not even the desert was nice, awful ice-cream, which is really hard to find, it was icy in the middle and not great flavour. I recommend to go for drinks but not for dinner.

The food had excellent taste, but the portions were very small. The tacos and burritos were about a quarter of expected size. The prices were appropriate for full size food, but far too expensive for what we received.
The ambiance was terrific and the service was good.

The owner was so rude and unprofessional. Our drinks took 45 mins to arrive and they forgot 2, we then got told that our food would take a long time because we hadn’t ordered when we sat down and now there was a queue before us. Not ok!

They have a beautiful garden at the back where you feel like you are in St Tropez!
Great food and cocktails, amazing atmosphere and they had a DJ on the Saturday evening.
This is not your typical Mexican place but a hidden gem in Chelsea!
Would definitely recommend if you want to have a great time!

Fantastic business! Great place to get authentic Mexican guacamole and tacos. Don't let the limited selection dissuade you, the flavors are amazing. The guacamole is definitely portioned on the generous side and well worth it! Hands down best tacos in the neighborhood. Just awesome. If you like great cultural food and supporting small businesses this place is it. The owner is sociable, kind and greatly appreciates customers. I would come here for an everyday occasion including a fancy night!

Far too expensive- £10 for guacamole is mad. Tacos were nice but fell apart (poor design of the filling). Alcohol fair prices, nothing to shout about though and a large glass is actually a medium priced like a large.

Lunch atmosphere poor - feels like you’re in a nightclub the morning after, especially with the cleaning still going on.

Could have been so much better, hopefully improves as Mexican is under represented in London

Really enjoyed our evening here. The people who run this place are outstanding hosts. The place is lovely to spend an evening chatting, not too busy or too loud, and the food is good. My only quibble is that the jug of Margarita seems very expensive at £35.

Mezcalito is the best Mexican restaurant in London! They have fantastic food, great margaritas, and impeccable customer service. The ambiance is super fun and they have the best music! My friend and I are studying abroad from Southern California and we’re homesick so decided to get Mexican food, and Mezcalito is the best Mexican restaurant we have been to in the UK. We have been a couple of times and they always remember us and greet us warmly. Their customer service is amazing and they always go above and beyond to make us happy. I highly recommend their tacos, they are traditional street tacos, and their strawberry and mango margaritas are so refreshing. They also have great chips and guacamole. The churros are very traditional with melted chocolate! Bottom line this place is the best and I highly recommend!

Outstanding place that deserves all the praise it has been getting. The experience was fantastic from the kind staff, to the lovely traditional hats displayed around the venue to the food/drink. The menu & portions are very good in my opinion especially if you're looking for a mix of small to medium plates. I loved the Tacos "Al Pastor" and "Tacos de Camaron" out of everything I tried. The figuras de salmon is tasty and comes with chunks of fresh salmon and figs. The mole comes with a Mexican prehispanic sauce - it has become my favorite sauce ever since trying it. Try the Taco Tuesday deal for £7.00 - comes with six different possible selection of tacos to try. My friends and I had ordered one of each to share as well as other plates on the tapas menu. The margarita menu was so delicious and offered different tastes compared to others I’ve had in the UK. Come here and try Mexican food it’s amazing. The servers were helpful and came out frequently.

Mezcalito imparts a fresh, unconventional, and exotic atmosphere that creates a cozy and comfortable dining experience. It finds a great balance between fancy and casual making it an appropriate dining setting for friends, family, or even a date night!

Built with distinctively Mexican features, the cactus-themed walls accompanied by authentic Spanish music give the quaint restaurant a vibrant yet warm radiance reminiscent of the central American country.

We were especially fond of the garden lounge. Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, however, we were very impressed by the hospitable staff, the fantastic cocktails, and the delicious (and reasonably priced) bottomless brunch all of which help this hidden gem in projecting a special nonnative feel.

I would suggest trying out the passion fruit or mango margaritas for drinks! 10/10 would recommend!

Excellent service, attentive, explained and recommended dishes. Great Pambazo de Langosta. The food was first class, portions reasonable for the price. Well prepared, seasoned and nicely presented dishes. The place was packed with people when I went. Truly a great place to share a gourmet meal with co-worker or friends while enjoying well prepared drinks. Highly recommended. Will definitely come back again.

Few choices on the menu, some really odd combos that are not well executed. Way overpriced for what it is. Did not appreciate the fact that when asked “did you like your meal”, we gave our honest opinion, to which the answer was “yes but there are so many ingredients that the flavour is really complicated “. If not ready to take feedback, better not ask for it.

Thank you for your feedback - we're sorry you had a poor experience. We've spoken to our staff and it's our understanding you'd ordered our Móle Dish at the time. Móle is a traditional sauce used in Mexican cuisine that contains 20+ ingredients, including chili peppers and chocolate (the bitter-sweetness of the chocolate subtly counteracts the spiciness of the peppers). We apologize for making you feel like you could not share your honest opinion & would definitely love to host you again soon.

This place is amazing it's hidden and speakeasy like right in the middle of Chelsea - off the king's road. My friends and I went - we we're able to order a entree and had unlimited bloody marys and prosecco. I personally only had the bloody marys and was able to get my money's worth. We later moved from the inside area to the outside garden that has a retractable roof and is heated by heat lamps. We all continued to drink there even after the bottomless brunch was over which is very telling. I would highly recommend this spot and think that because of it's hidden nature it's even more appealing to those that know about it.
