Chef Ana Lilia Galindo serves up a globe-spanning menu in Chamonix's cozy, hearth-warmed dining room. The specialty here is the aptly named Swiss fillet— medallions of beef wrapped in ham and cheese. But frequent fliers will also be pleased by traditional Mexican dishes like beef-stuffed poblano chiles, spicy Sri Lankan curry, Vietnamese spring rolls, and an array of fresh pastas. In fine weather, the pretty outdoor terrace is a lovely place to linger.

This place was quiet and my wife and I went for a romantic dinner. We were told that it was a "hit or miss" type of place. Unfortunately our night was somewhat of a miss. It was quite expensive for San Miguel. The service was good but the food (a chicken curry of sorts) was very poor.

Excellent, French biased foods and well chosen wines. The chef takes much of her dishes from France and does a great job with sauces. The wait staff have been well trained and give unhurried service. We had dinner there one night and lunch another day; however, take note that to get a reservation on the weekend is not easy. Hope... More

Part of the restaurant is in a central atrium and part indoors. The food is good without being outstanding. We had excellent soup and interesting Vietnamese wraps, but our pork chops were large and a bit dry. Service is slow because both food and drinks are written on blackboards (one of each) so you may have quite a wait until... More

One of best meals ever! The inside dinning room is intimate and quiet enough for a conversation. Their were 6 of us and each had a different appetizer a.d main course and each told the others they should have had what they had. My wife's salmon was cooked to perfection. My linguine was outstanding. The pork chop was perfect as... More

Chamonix is one of the best restaurants in San Miguel. The owner is always present for both guests and making sure that the food is consistently good. There are two menus. The first is a standard set of choices - many of which are quite interesting. The second menu is the specials - Ana Lillia has developed some interesting combinations... More

CHAMONIX deserves to be among the 1st ten restaurants listed in San Miguel. Great Margaritas, nice wine list & very good varied menu. Excellent Salmon, Chicken kebabs, Salads, & a marvelous Lime pie. Ana Lillia runs a tight ship.

We ate dinner in the beautiful courtyard twice on our recent trip to San Miguel. On both occasions, the food and service were excellent, great pasta, interesting soups and a salads, wonderful chicken. The charming and relaxing atmosphere coupled with great food and service make this my favorite restaurant in San Miguel.
