The mojitos were good, (and two for one at lunch) but the food was awful. The fried oysters were nothing but breading. The raw oysters were very small. The chicken wings were okay, but overall, our meal for 4 was very disappointing. Wouldn't go back for lunch or dinner.

I had the seafood crepes this time and loved them, wonderful flavor. The bread pudding was amazing as was the death by chocolate. We shared desserts around the table. Wait staff wonderful and attentive. My husband had the chicken rochambeau, which was tender and well seasoned, excellent with creamed spinach. We love Guillermo Jamaniego!

I frequent Hanks in Querétaro, but this was my first time at the San Miguel Hanks. The average meal here ranges from $130-$250 pesos, depending on what you get. I highly suggest my personal favorite item on the menu, the Four Cheese Soup. It comes in a bread bowl, and every spoonful is a little bit of heaven! My sister... More

For some reason this restaurant decided they needed to reflect New Orleans rather than Mexico.... The music was good, not too loud, the wait staff was very nice and the food was surprisingly good given that this is a tourist restaurant. And, there were locals in the restaurant, which is always a good sign.

We returned for a wonderful dinner, I had the petite filet rare and mashed potatoes with awesome cream spinach, my husband had the crab cakes, he loved them. We had key lime pie and... More

We just had happy hour or late night drinks here. The service was great and very friendly. The happy hour is two for one for just about every drink and served with spicy popcorn. Lots of ex pats if you crave an English speaking experience

I don't like giving bad reviews, but our experience with Hank's New Orleans Cafe & Oyster Bar was not what we had hoped for. Being on a budget we avoided going there since it has the rep of being expensive. That was not the problem. We sat at the bar since like Yogi Berra said, "nobody goes there anymore, it's... More

Any self respecting cajeon chef would commit suicide rather to put his name to this food! This has to be, sadly one of the worse meals I have ever had the misfortune of having to pay for.

I went there with my family expecting a great dinner. We got there and the drinks were skimpy the food was served cold and it had nothing to do with new orleands cuisine that the restaurant advertises. Terrible value for money

Nice setting. Good service. But food is mediocre and over priced. Had a hamburger that tasted more like sausage than beef on a bun that was stale. Onions rings were soggy. Not a meal that I would like to repeat.
