I just enjoyed a fabulous meal with my daughters at La Virundela. We had the ribeye, baby back ribs, and pasta for my youngest. It was delicious - one of the best meals we've had in 6 months in San Miguel. The service was great, and Lila - the owner, treated us like we were guests in her home. There... More

We had a marvelous dinner here with Alex as our server and Laila as our wine consultant.Please say hello to them for me. The night we were there, a young couple became engaged and the house popped bottles of cava and treated all diners to a glass of bubbly. A very classy move. Dinner started with empanadas and moved on... More

I had the most excellent steak here! I am a very picky steak eater, and Chef Chucho cooked mine to perfection. Alex, my server was most attentive; even asked me what kind of music I wanted to listen to! (Blues) Alex tells me this place has new owners and it's busy on weekends. So, go on a Thursday, excellent service!... More

A warm welcome, great food and decent prices greeted us there. Frankly, a very good ending to a very tiresome day. I hope thery are... More

We just returned from La Virundela, a small Argentinian restaurant. My husband was in the mood for a good steak and this small restaurant met that need. Yum! ( grilled mushroom salad, rib eye steak with fresh hot seasoned fries, a mixed pear salad with mixed greens. Alex, our server, was attentive and able to assist us in making our... More

Best steak I've tasted in North America! Really authentic Argentinian flavour with great fresh parsley and garlic chimichuri (sp?). Wonderful wine list at good prices with great recommendations from the staff and management. Fantastic friendly service - a wonderful evening all round. Thank you!

We had not only great food, but also great interaction with the chef and the owner. The owner made us and our dog feel very welcome and attended too. We had the pork belly gnocchi and short ribs. Both were cooked to perfection. We will be back to try more of the menu. The restaurant was busy while we were... More

My wife and I enjoyed many fine meals in SMA, but we were particularly delighted to find La Virundela on our last evening there. The hostess knew the food and wines very well, and I was finally able to taste a Mexican wine I had been looking for, a Nebbiolo from Baja. (Most restaurants had offered Mexican tinto blends I...

It's a really cosy and charming place. The owner comes right by your table to say hello and to recommend some dishes... Drinks were spot-on and the food quite spectacular.
