This place is very outside above the busy city. You will need a taxi going there. From downtown you leaving the center over the 110 up to the Panoramica until San Javier. There you will enter a small, intimate place with artful food and a good service. This is a highly recommended experience with unique Mexican dishes. I forgot to... More

We had one of our best meals here during our week-long visit to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende. The service was exquisite and the old home is charming. The food dishes are incredibly interesting and flavorful, and there's plenty of variety, including grasshoppers if you're in the mood! Just be sure to arrange your transportation because it's not walkable... More

Fortunately the main dishes were really good, but it took until then to have a good experience, the welcome was not as warm as you expect from such a top rated place. Access for stroller almost impossible and no baby seats for the tables. The food was above average, but no tuna available even when the menu is small, Service... More

We loved this place. Small, intimate setting, artful food and good service. The chicken dish I had was incredible. We also tried the duck carnitas app and had a Mexican Sangiovese wine, which was quite good. It was nice to get above the city for a quiet evening. Highly recommend this experience with unique Mexican dishes that were elevated beyond... More

The restaurant was known to the locals as a great place to eat, but was kind of off the beaten trail. It is an easy taxi ride from the Central Historic District. The interior is strikingly elegant with a breathtaking view of Guanajuato. The wine selection is amazing, with a large selection of Mexican wines, which is sometimes hard to... More

The ambiance, view and service excellent. Great wine selections. Our waitress Ari was sweet and attentive. Now for the meals. My wife had the Chili Relleno stuffed with beef, raisin & nuts. Our friend Barbara had the tuna and was disappointed but being in the middle of Mexico probably not the best choice. I had the steak in a rich... More

I have been to Guanajuato many times, but this was my first experience at Casa Mercedes. IMO, this is the best fine restaurant in the city. The food is authentic Mexican with fresh ingredients, locally sourced, and just great taste. The service was excellent, explaining all the options. The owner was very friendly explaining with more detail what we were... More
