Food is not the best but is mexican & reflected in the prices. Can easily walk past the venue unless you are familiar with it. I waited 15 mins for my friend & was not offered to order a drink. Overall very friendly staff & nice place.

Great food and cocktails in a relaxed environment. The barman can make any cocktail for you so don’t feel restricted by the list!

Mezcalito is a place that I will definitely recommend to go to! The food is very good and the atmosphere is very friendly. It can be a family having dinner there but it can also be between friends. There are some days of the week where they organise Boardgames. I also really like the terrace of the restaurant! However, I would not suggest to book via Open table as the website does not take into consideration the bookings properly. Last time, I had tried to book a table for Mezcalito restaurant and it was appearing on Open table that the table would be available for 5 minutes and after the booking will be cancelled ...?!? when I arrived to the restaurant, no booking had been done...

Terrible service. Food was so bland, cold and no flavor. Didn’t use real cheese on the nachos!
Waiter and waitress neglected our entire section the whole night. Took 20 minutes to order drinks and then 20 minutes to get the drinks.
Way over priced for the pitiful food that was served.
100% will never go here again nor recommend to anyone.
Worst dining experience We have had in years.

I love this hidden Chelsea Mexican place! been there few times, the food and drinks are great and especially from Thursday onward the atmosphere is great! some music in the background, friendly people and the owner is around making sure that all the tables are taken care of even when there are delays due to large groups of people!

We felt very unwelcome by the service , rushed to order and warned not to order more food later as we may then have to wait. The place was empty , they forgot to turn on the lights inside and generally a bit off . What a shame

Back for the first time since last year and I can't believe I wasn't back earlier! The menu has changed from what I remember, the Carnitas Tacos are the best I've had outside of Mexico :) Happy Hour on cocktails is well worth! Definitely will be back again soon!

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!

This place is amazing!
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!
