The mountain town of Guanajuato in central Mexico is home to some amazing restaurants just waiting to be discovered. Whether you’re looking for typical Mexican cuisine or dishes from further afield, here are 10 of the best restaurants in the area.

Casa Valadez

Restaurant, Mexican, $$$

Situated just in front of Teatro Juarez in the centre of town, this restaurant is great for people watching. On colder evenings take a table inside, but in summer the terrace is the place to be. Portions are big and the menu is varied, so it’s a great place to go after a day of sightseeing.

Las Mercedes

Restaurant, Mexican

On the outskirts of town is this traditional Mexican restaurant, with tables looking down over the city. It’s pricier than most places in Guanajuato, but it’s worth both the expense and the taxi ride. It’s like going to a Mexican grandma’s house for lovingly-prepared dishes that haven’t changed in years.

Habibti Falafel

Restaurant, Middle Eastern, Mexican, $$$

If you’ve had enough of street tacos but you’re on a tight budget, this falafel joint is a great place to go. It’s super-cheap, and there are only a few tables so you might have to take it away, but the wraps are great.

Los Campos

Restaurant, Mexican, $$$

Run by a Canadian-Mexican husband and wife team, this little place prides itself on offering Mexican food with a twist. The innovative menu has earned Los Campos a stellar reputation, and it’s recommended that you make a reservation if you want to eat in the evening.

Mercado Hidalgo

Market, Mexican, Street Food

While it’s not strictly a restaurant, there are plenty of food stalls inside the Mercado Hidalgo in the centre of the city. It’s a great place to wander around for a while before sitting down to order at one of the small restaurants. Always pick a busy one even if it means waiting a while for your food.

Escarola

Diner, Restaurant, Contemporary, Mexican

With an international menu, Escarola is great for groups that can’t decide quite what they want to eat. Everyone is bound to find something they fancy from the selection of burgers, salads, sandwiches and soups, and there is a great terrace to enjoy. Be prepared to wait a while for your food; everything is prepared from scratch after you order.
