THE RESTAURANT, housed in one of San Miguel’s most elegantly colonial settings at Sollano 16, opened in February 2008 featuring Chef Donnie Masterton’s world class cuisine. It is located just steps away from the main square of San Miguel de Allende, the prettiest and most restored/written-about Colonial city in all of Mexico. Offering a full bar, it serves lunch and dinner five days a week in a sun-dappled eighteen century Moroccan courtyard, as well as in their elegant dining salon.Serving global comfort good, THE RESTAURANT’s menu reflects the changing seasons with a focus on the simplicity of fine ingredients. The Chef collaborates with local organic growers, dairy farmers and ranchers to procure the freshest, highest quality and responsibly raised product available. Catering to today’s more experienced, adventurous and health conscious diners, The Restaurant will emphasize quality in food and customer service…as well as a more involved relationship with respect to our food and the land it comes from.

Located in a beautiful historic building with a magnificent Moorish style courtyard sits this lovely restaurant. The English speaking waiters are very helpful and really want you to enjoy your dining experience which is exceptional.

We were all very happy with the food and service but may have gotten tricked with tipping twice, as they may have added 15 percent to the bill. This is not the usual custom in San Miguel

Disappointed that the food was not that good but the prices were higher than the food merited. Mostly tourists.

Food was good to very good, not fabulous either, at least my plate, although my husband did love his seafood. Definitely the portions are a bit in the small side and by the time you add the taxes which aren't included, it really ends up costing more than you'd think... Other than that, service was good but slow... Too busy... More
