El Midi is a cute little second floor bistro in the heart of Guanajuato. Our first visit was for breakfast. Salchicha con papas. It was spectacular. The restaurant is small, but has beautiful views. Go to the terrace on the 3rd floor and you will...More

casual setting, great location in Centro, a bit hard to find as it is located in a building with 3 other restaurants, but worth the extra effort.

The Midi or the South, are the different names that the south zone of France receives, a land full of history, architecture, culture and tradition. The midi is distinguished by having a warm and very familiar climate, its excellent environment made it a spectacular place. The music entertains visitors, who enjoy a good drink after a tour of the magical alleys of Guanajuato. Inspired by these distant European lands, it's like "El Midi" combines different flavors, aromas and becomes a delight for our guests. "Welcome to the Midi"
