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.

    Very disappointing, would never go again. I booked for our wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in we were rushed and told that there was only three staff on today plus there was a party of 15 coming in this was reflected throughout our "experience" Our main course was brought to the table while we were still eating our starter. Leaving all that aside, the food was poor quality, just tasteless slop, over cooked and clearly not freshly prepared. At time of booking there was an option to send the restaurant a message like a special request. I asked if we could have flowers on the table, there was nothing on the table.

    I celebrated my birthday at Mestizo recently and had lovely service and amazing menu including one of my favourite cakes (3 leches!). The staff sang to me and gave us complimentary shots at the end of the night. I will definitely be going again soon!

    We love this family run Mexican Restaurant. It is the ONLY truly Mexican Restaurant in London. The flavors are wonderful, the staff are super helpful... and the Taco Tray is a must. We definitely would ONLY recommend Mestizo for truly authentic mexican food. Nothing else compares.

    Very good experience overall. I really enjoyed the food. Two small flaws that I think you can work on is that the waiter always seem in a rush to take away your plates as soon as you are done, which kind of makes you feel pressured to eat your food quickly so that they can prepare the table for the next client. The second thing is the noise level which was made worse by the band who suddenly started playing in the middle of the restaurant, making it really hard to hear what the person sitting in front of me was saying. This lasted over 30 minutes and while it was really nice at the beginning, I think the length could be decreased so that people can talk in a normal voice. Apart from this I really enjoyed my time there, the food, the drinks and the company.

    We were really disappointed by our experienced at mestizo, as many friends including some actually from Mexico had recommended it as really great authentic Mexican food. But the service was poor, with us often asking for things twice or waiting a long time for drinks, and the food was really bad; a lot of stuff seemed it was just deep fried from frozen, there was nothing that we found tasty. We are wondering if the restaurant has recently changed hands since our experience was so different from others, and indeed most of the reviews for it

    Great concept and cool spot but service felt a bit rushed and not overly attentive. Owners/managers sitting at a table in the restaurant doing admin, just looked a little sloppy. Food was good but expected bolder flavour. Loved the look of the menu but a few items not available and we weren't told when we sat down.

    Another fabulous meal. Great tamales, tacos and margaritas. Great restaurant but miss the mixed starter option so one gets a taste of everything - no longer part of menu. Shame. Highly recommend and indeed have done so.
