My wife and I visited this restaurant during our honey moon early July. The owner is fantastic, good staff and good food. We had a great time. We always make sure to leave good tips in cash and this was no exception. Four days later we saw in our statement that this restaurant adjusted our bill adding 10% for tip,... More

To begin, we ordered salads. These were passable. We then ordered steak. Mine was supposed to be medium well; it came with a very black thin crust, and the inside meat was practically raw. I did not finish it. Next afternoon I suddenly became very sick. We returned to the house ASAP. When I lay down, I immediately started to... More

We dinned here with our group, is very well located, the decor is fabulous, sober, mexican style. We were greeted by the owner who kindly help us with our table. We had drinks at the entrance bar, which is very well served. The menu is Mexican, food was very well done, I suggest to order the meat dinner plates. Service... More

My companion and I went there for a special night after the theater across the street. We both ordered the Osso Bucco. It was a Wednesday night and the meat smelled a little strange when it came. Evidentially it was left over from the busy weekend. My companion ate two bites and I ate a little more. The next morning... More

Our table was ready for us when we got there, the whole staff was attentive and very polite. We started with garlic mushrooms with bread, yum!!! Everyone at the table was thrilled with their entrees. Service was great. Our meals were coursed out perfect, table bussed, waters and wine kept full. Beautiful atmosphere! We were there to early for live... More

Nice, open air setting and central location, but the music is far too loud. They really need to take it down a few notches - when you cannot even talk during dinner, it is a problem. The waiters are overly attentive at first, but the service begins dwindling rapidly - and usually right when you need something. We had to... More

Not a bad place to go if you've been to many other restaurants in town. The decor and staff are very good, in fact if I had a complaint about the staff is that they are too attentive, they kept pouring my beer, I would rather do that myself. The owner stopped by the table two or three times during... More

We went early (at about 7.30) the other night (March 2014). Good ambiente, lots of middle-class Mejicanos. Steak is superb, service very good. We were told a band would strike up at 9pm, so made for the door before that. Price..who cares, if you enjoy what you are eating and drinking. Probably on the high side, but this is a... More

Great atmosphere. Good local and American food. The Chateaubriand is a must. The jazz is an excellent bonus

I guess there is a little chancy to try to eat out in a small town as San Miguel during a long weekend and not lose your bearings, but my friends and I did push our luck and went to Tío Lucas for lunch. It became dinner: we waited for 1.5 hrs in the crowded vestibule before being assigned a... More
