Never coming back!!! – Service was slow, eventhough the restaurant wasn't full. The tacos were expensive and are not the best I've tried. Churros were good, but for sure I'm not coming back only for their churros.
Best Mexican Food – Cafe San Miguel has great style and serves divine food. Order the signature pomerita!
The home made corn tortillas out of this world.
Our Favorite Authentic Mexican Food Restaurant! – I am unsure how anyone could have a bad experience here... every single visit of the over 20 I have had, was fantastic! If you go, you have to try the Ceviche' as well as the Queso Fundido, and the Tres Leches Cake (dare I say it's better than La Duni's?) By far the most authentic, great tasting food, and the Pomegranate Margaritia's are worth a try as well. Over the weekends you'll find that you'll need to make a reservation, but during the week, you can easily walk in and get a seat. The restaurant layout is more for fun with your significant other or friends than a romantic night out... and the decor is very well thought out. My boyfriend and I make it out to the restaurant AT LEAST once a month, and when you're a regular, the owners and managment notice. Overall, this is a great place to eat, with a fun causal atmosphere. Cheers!
Food and Hospitality are both VERY San Miguel! – Today I visited Cafe San Miguel for the first time with friends - the occasion was my birthday. We had a perfectly wonderful lunch (I highly recommend the Enchiladas de Bistec!). The food was wonderful, the atmosphere and decor very authentically Mexican - I visit San Miguel de Allende every year. At the end of our lunch, without comment, our waiter placed before me a heavenly big slice of Tres Leches cake, beautifully served with drizzles of chocolate sauce on the plate, and a strawberry cut to look like a rose - also, forks enough for all five of us.
My friends were astonished - no one had ordered the cake, and the only visible signs to any observer that it was my birthday was that my friends, who arrived before me, made a comment about saving a seat for "the birthday girl", and I opened a small wrapped gift before lunch. The waiter had simply OBSERVED what was going on, and very graciously offered the dessert. This waiter is a PRO!! And Cafe San Miguel is a pearl!!
Returned to still a favorite – I had not been to eat here in a while and was pleasantly surprised to find that it still is one of the best authentic mexican food restaurants in town. The Aracharra plate was just as I remembered it with the delicious steak and stuffed poblano pepper and the Pomegranite Margarita was delicious and cool not too sweet. The ambience was fun and I had a great time with my friends.
Great drinks specially the Pomerita, a pomegranate margarita – Went there this weekend, they were celebrating their first year in business. What a surprise when we went inside... Whoa, can they celebrate! The place was buzzing with energy. But the food was still the greatest surprise. Refreshing to find authentic Mexican food and great service. They have a special pomegranate margarita that's out of this world! Can't wait to go back. We learned you can call ahead and get on the wait list.
Avoid, Avoid, Avoid – Went early on a Saturday night. The ONLY thing that was up to par was the expeditious seating by the hostess. Other than that it was a painfully slow dining experience! The server didn't know what types of domestic beers they served. The pomeritas were small and just ok. We ordered guacamole but never got any chips to eat it with. After 25min and numerous requests we finally got our chips. The guacamole was good! The food finally came and was very bland and no flavor to it. Lots of salt only helped a little. The rice was soaked in butter and the refried beans, you had to have a magnifying glass just to see that they were on your plate! Had to ask for water refills. I would hate to be there when they were busy. Do yourself a favor, AVOID!
pretty good – i have eaten here twice recently; the 1st visit was just OK but the second time we dined here we were pleasantly surprised. the service is personable and the food is generally good quality. i would avoid the giant relleno, though - it is soggy & greasy (other reviews in local publications have said the same thing but i did not read them in time). they have a creative list of cocktails also.
Very disappointing – I ordered the Tilapia, and the first bite of the salad on top was great. The dish smelled fishy, and the fish was so salty that it was inedible. The rice under the fish was swimming in oil, and the sauteed vegetables were bitter. I've never before been served anything at a restaurant that went from good to awful in just a few bites.
Very accommodating – We had a sudden emergency right before our food came to the table and had to leave pretty much immediatelyin no part because of the restaurant. They were nice and boxed up our food (marking each entree on the boxes) and quickly helped get on our way. I was saddened to have to leave because I found Cafe San Miguel a welcome addition to the area, with the valet parking, fun colors on the walls and nice dark lounge-ish bar area. I like interior Mexican cuisine and enjoyed the waiters enthusiasm in describing the difference. He was proud of it and had a right to be. The food was great and I plan to return so I can get the full presentation. Also, the pomegranate margaritas are very good.
