Description: 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.

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 entered the restaurant on a night that was clearly not busy. The restaurant's entrance area is attractive but the overall decor is nothing special. The owner has a shop right inside with lovely items, so one would expect a lot more. There was no host, and the waiter we saw grumpily agreed to seat us at a nice table... More

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.

Oh, I love this restaurant! Wonderful menu...something for everyone. Among my favorites are the robalo, the lemon pasta and the roasted chicken. The staff is so nice...giving great service. What wonderful food to come out of such a little kitchen. I understand the chef is Spanish-trained. All her dishes I've ever tried are just wonderful. A lovely French feeling with... More

We asked some people at an art gallery and they told us about Chamonix. Looked it up at Trip adv, and decided... More

My husband and I just stumbled on to this restaurant. We had gone to another planned restaurant that was closed. We were pleasantly surprised with the quaint setting. We sat in the courtyard. We were promptly greeted. The waiter brought two large chalk boards with the menu and Specials of the day written in English and Spanish. The menu was... More

The food is prepared with such care. i have been going here since they opened both when i lived in SMA and on subsequent visits. It never disappoints. You have a choice of intimate courtyard or indoor dining. A touch of France in SMA, how nice!

The patio setting in this ancient building is romantic, charming, serene. The service is professional and courteous. This is one of my very favorite restaurants in San Miguel and I adore Ana Lilia, the chef who turns out consistently marvelous food at reasonable prices!
