Went for the Sunday buffet. Food was delicious and authentic. Service was great with tacos made to order and table service for drinks. Would definitely visit again.

The food was very overpriced and lacking flavour. My boyfriend and I both ordered tacos and the restaurant were so stingey with the onion, cheese and coriander. There was barely enough for 1 person on there and when we asked for more it was an additional charge. The restaurant reminded me of something out of Gordon Ramseys kitchen nightmares

I was recommended this place by several friends here in London so I booked for a gathering of 5 friends. I was disappointed by the food as soon as it arrived. I was expecting authentic Mexican food and it was definitely not authentic. It was an English version of Mexican. The drinks are very good, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Shame the food isn’t great because the athmosphere is great!

We are regulars there whenever we go to London. As an American is’t hard to find good Mexican cuisine. A plus that it is close to Euston Station. They never disappoint.

Without a doubt, the most disappointing Mexican restaurant I have been to. The service was no better than average and the food was tasteless. The nachos we ordered for a starter were fine but the burritos for main course were very poor. We couldn’t eat more than half of what was on the plates as it was so disappointing. I was looking forward to a beer and snacks as a pre-cursor but they didn’t even have decent salsa. We will not be going back

We had heard great things about this restaurant.....The Nacho starter was fantastic. There were 3 of us, 2 did the sharing lamb dish which was very nice as well. However the other meal is where it all went wrong. The wrong meal was delivered, vegetarian as oppose to meat and that was an understandable mistake as there had been some discussion on vegetables although that was meant as a side. Manager came over said he would bring replacement which cam very quickly however it was cold. So had to get another one sent. So by this time the 2 sharers had finished their meal and the 3rd not started. Strangely the server then brought our bill, which hadn't been asked for. Once meal finished we paid the bill to another server and proceeded to start to leave. We were then approached by original server who had asked us if we had actually paid. At no point was their ever any animosity on either side. It was my daughter's birthday and the whole thing was just slightly disappointing.

Great authentic Mexican food. was really great to find a place like this. The market was closed when we got there, I wish they could still sell things like tortillas from their market in the restaurant.

Love Mestizo, authentic Mexican flavours, It would be great if they have a kids menu as I took my daughter with me... even if its just a simple soup with some chicken.

I felt “cheated” and to explain - as a group of 4 .. we had had a fair bit to drink, and were Merry shall we say.

When the bill came, and when paying by card the waiter said “would you like to leave a tip ?” ... which I did.

Only to discover later, following day, when reviewing the bill - that 12.5% service fee had already been applied ... so I actually ended up tipping twice !!!!!!

Really poor practice - not impressed and I will never be going here again.

Mediocre experience. The tacos tray was nothing exciting, the waiters over eager to take away plates and the ambience was just like any other restaurant with some Mexican music in the background.
