Food is very Mexican and pretty tasty. Prices might be a little high for the kind of place it is but you won't be disappointed with your experience. Waiters are attentive and provide a sharp service.

World renown for their tortilla soup; also great chili's en nogada (in season) and enchiladas (very different from the drowning in gravy/sauce style of Tex-Mex fame).

I will separate the dining experience from unfortunate circumstances (I got sick in the middle of dinner, eating in wet clothes from a torrential downpour) The restaurant and the food were average. The room was small with the standard colonial-ish décor of SMA. The lighting gave everything a ghostly pallor. I have made chiles en nogada at home (yes, I... More

If you are traveling, studying or living in San Miguel de Allende, you ought to try having comida at El Correo. This small, well run establishment is only two blocks east of the main square on Correo street! They offer plenty of delicious Mexican dishes. There is something for everyone.

It's the attention to detail that hits you first. Everything is just so, and that includes the food. The bunch of flowers on the table, the paintings on the walls. An old world charming place. Very good service.

We went there several times during our 10-day stay in SMA. The staff began to treat us like regulars. The food was consistently excellent, served at the right temperature and of sufficient variety. The first time we were there was at noon on a Sunday; it was great to see all the local families eating at El Correo, which we... More

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place has yet to disappoint. Our meals have been consistently very tasty. I am always one that looks for value for the price and El Correo always delivers good portions as well. I found prices to be very reasonable, especially that close to Centro. If I had to have one beef, it would be that... More

If you want a wonderful club sandwich and fries, this is the place. The french fries are better than I've had at TGIF's!! The club is easily enough to split with a friend! There other menu items are also memorable.
