Mexican

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.

    Recommended to me by a regular customer who knows good Mexican food and Mestizo did not disappoint! Food was delicious and the frozen margaritas were a perfect accompaniment and the staff were lovely! This is going to become a regular spot for us.

    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.

    Excellent Taco Tray. This was just the Festival June set meal rather than a la carte. Very small margarita with offer meal. We ordered another which was normal size - BUT delicious either way. Service could have been friendlier. However, I have eaten here before and the food is always excellent and very tasty. one of best Mexicans in London.

    Veg enchiladas were nothing special. The veg was over cooked and it didn’t have much flavor. Honestly, I could make better at home. But the taco tray is always a good bet. Cactus is the best!
