Breath taking cuisine. Perfect balance, huge personality, exploring and mastering great combinations of regional products. Drinks are unbelievable. Owner is entertaining and warmly welcomes you. Great ambience, guitar live music on the background. This is a must visit place, a true sin if you miss it

I rarely complain in my TA reviews - usually I just want to highlight the places we have enjoyed and thought were special. Casa Mercedes disappointed us, though, and ruined what was supposed to be a very special meal. I can't guess the reason, but want to tell our story so that others might not be similarly disappointed by a... More

Good food served by an overstretched wait staff. Our dinner was good but not commensurate with this restaurant's rating. More servers are needed to provide diners with efficient service. The evening was somewhat disappointing.

Grab a taxi and head on over. Great food. Awesome service. Relatively small restaurant, hence quaint. A must

Highly recommend food and warm ambiance. Best tuna with grasshopper topping was a treat. Everything was tasty and beautifully prepared.

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
