I went with my family and we had an amazing meal, service was amazing and superb food. Great variety of beers my only my feedback would be that the waitress did not knew which kind of beers you have. We were looking for a pale ale and she had no idea. I ended ordering a Chela Libre El Sancho which... More

This restaurant was kind of empty when we were there, which is too bad because the service is great and the food is innovative. Try the octopus 🐙 tacos al pastor, super tasty and a different take on al pastor. So I hope people see this review and go there! The bar next door makes a great strawberry 🍓 mojito,... More

We stopped here mid afternoon for drinks and snacks (and a little break from walking around town). We were a group of 7 with 3 kids, including 4 vegetarians. The service was excellent. We ordered some drinks and appetizers. They had some of the most interesting beer we saw in San Miguel. The margarita was very nice. I would recommend... More

I called about one month in advanced to make a reservation to celebrate my birthday. I talked to the Manager and he listened and delivered all expectations. When my guest arrived, He sent appetizers and courtesy signature drinks to all my guests. Must try the signature mojito, the best in San Miguel!! Food was delicious and service was excellent. All...

We discovered Tres after visiting a food festival and trying their tuna ceviche. We loved it so much we had to track down the restaurant. We visited for lunch. The table we sat at seemed to be in a courtyard area for a hotel possibly. There was an interior bar and seating area as well. Of course we had the... More

To be considered a cantina you need to offer good "botanas" (appetizers) in order to seduce your guest to wonder through the menu and ask for something new. El Tres has managed to do this with an honest and well presented array of botanas and main course dishes.

Hands down the most carefully crafted drinks I´ve had in San Miguel. From original drinks to beautiful presentation to just flat out honest care in preparation, the bar at El Tres is my favorite bar in San Miguel.

Came to this place after wondering around and we were attracted by its wonderful decor and attractive menu. The restaurant offers international food with mostly Mexican influence. I have to say that we enjoyed all the dishes we ordered and had an excellent time. The cochinita tacos were superb. Service was fast and attentive. El Tres has a few different... More
