This is a restaurant which serves few gringos who seem to love places which are tailored for serving the expat population. El Correo has excellent food and wonderful service. it's a brief walk from the Jardin and when we were there we went to El Correo 3 times. Gets 4.5 stars in my book. It deserves to be reviewed on TripAdvisor.

Love the nopal salad...

Big enough for two or three people and excellent. We had dinner here one night when it looked like rain as it's inside but has large doors open to the street so you feel outside but out of the rain. Great meal all the way around. Guacamole was excellent, and I had a wonderful dish with meatballs... read more

We have always liked Correo and the food is good, but we have had bad service now two times in a row. The first time we sat around for quite a while before anyone took our drink order due to the fact that our waiter took off (guy with the tat sleeves, he did return eventually). And tonight after another... More

This lovely little cafe was just down from our hotel, so we stopped in. After the first day, we went every morning! The coffe was hot and delicious, the juice fresh and wonderful, and the huevos El Correo was amazing!

This is a very small restaurant with the best soups on the planet. They are known for their tortilla soup but the chicken noodle and chicken rice are both delicious as well. We started with guacamole and chips and it was beautifully presented, large enough for 4 people (we were only 2) and was possibly the best we've ever eaten.... More

We were here for lunch. When I compare this place to so many great restaurants in San Miguel I have to say the food just lacked a punch... or in other words the food was not as tasty as it could be. Combined with slow service I am sorry but I will have to give it only three stars. The... More

Nothing out of the ordinary, but a very good version of classic what you expect Mexican in a happy and friendly atmosphere. Well worth it!

I had a very delicious lunch here on my first afternoon in San Miguel. I enjoyed it so much that I returned for dinner with friends on a very rainy evening. The restaurant is cozy, the service was attentive and the Taco soup, one of their specialties, was excellent and a meal in itself.
