Great Mexican food with a wonderful ambiance. Even if you only somewhat like Mexican fare, there is something for everyone. Very friendly, family owned restaurant.

Having become a regular in San Miguel I've had the opportunity to visit and revisit numerous restaurants. Oddly, it's not easy to find genuinely authentic Mexican food there, mostly because of the amount of foreign residents and visitors many of whom are reluctant to try...More
