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.

Very pleasant experience

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.

We were a party of five. My husband and I shared the Tortilla Soup and the Chili Rellenos. Both were excellent, and the portions were generous (we ordered two chilis for our platter, but you can order just one if you want). The chili Rellenos fillings were very tasty and smothered in cheese. A relative who spends three months a... More

We ordered too much food the first time we went to El Correo. We shared an order of the wonderful Chilaquiles, a bowl of sweet breakfast breads, a fruit plate and 2 coffee con leches. We ordered the Chiliquiles Bandera style which is served with 1/3 each of a red sauce, green sauce and a mole. They are all delicious...... More

Looking for quaint...great option off to the side of El Jardin. Needing a break from liquor try one of their fresh melon juices. Their guacamole is beautifully arranged in the shape of a flower moreover its delicious! Recommend for a break from the hustle. Buen provecho!

Quiet and lovely with a thoughtful menu, reasonable prices. Pablono Nogada, a seasonal specialty was fantastic and the mole sauce on the Chicken Mole the best we had in the weeks we ate our way around the area.

This surprising restaurant hidden in an enclave on the street proved a delightful surprise. it was almost full both times we went but we got the last table both times. The chili rellenos stuffed with beef and served with the rice and beans was such a generous portion that we split it. Miriachi players were a delightful surprise.
