That's how Miguel says goodnight to us snowbirds. Super funny guy, always hospitable. Good drinks, cold beer, and you can leave your autograph literally anywhere on the walls.

It is like stopping at the corner bar at home. Good family owned bar. Miguel greeted us like he remembered us. The wife & I haven't been there for 7 years. He didn't remember our names but he remembered where we live. We had no state name on us but he knew where we were from.

Stopped in for dinner. Was greeted with a hug and handshake by the owner. Very nice guy. Food wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was good. Will gladly return next time we are on the island.

I've never eaten here, but have been there for 2x1 drinks several times. Miguel is great - very friendly - and I always have the pomegranate margaritas. Mojitos are good too. We've always sat outside. Fun place later in the evening after dinner when wandering around town.

Ever since we've met Miguel years ago, his place is a must stop on Isla. It's just a little place with writing all over the walls and ceilings from previous visitors (including us) just a half block off Hildago. Sometimes he has a band, but none that we saw that week we were there. We stopped by every night after... More

Miguel's is still fantastic. Miguel has great food, great drinks and a good staff. His motto is todos es posible (anything is possible) and he certainly lives up to it. From the pomegranate margaritas to the food, it just can't get better.

We loved Miguel's! The food was outstanding (highly recommend the enchiladas!, and my husband says the lobster is a must), appetizers were great, and drinks and entertainment were fantastic! We can't wait to get back to see Miguel and the gang!

The moonlight platter is great, but definitely made for one person. I think you can specify how big you want it to be though so if there is more than one person order accordingly. Definitely pricey, and for the quality of food you can get better at lower prices. Soda was 25 pesos, drinks are 2 for 1 but still... More

While our stay at Isla Mujeres we discovered the bar in a side street of Hidalgo (main street) and returned every night. It has everything a good hangout needs: great service, great drinks, nice people & staff and always someone to challenge at the pool table. The owner Miguel and his crew are funny guys. You should definitely have a... More

Miguel's is a fine bar/restaurant and Miguel himself is a great owner/bartender/person. The place is no longer on Hidalgo but right around the corner on Madero, just east of Hidalgo. The fun is still the same! There are several outside tables in an alcove off the sidewalk. Inside finds more tables, a pool table, a bar, 2 TVs and a... More
