Excellent food and excellent service. The staff was great, friendly and knowledgeable. There are some excellent restaurants in SMA, this ranks among the best. We had pasta dishes. The pasta and the shrimp were cooed to perfection. Great appetizers and we split the pear in reduced red wine sauce for dessert - it was wonderful. Great wine list featuring some... More

We ate at this restaurant twice while visiting San Miguel. The first time we had the skirt steak which was outstanding and very tender. It was served with rosemary potatoes which I highly recommend as well. The service from Nina and Marcel was excellent; very attentive and pleasant. The second time we went was for a lighter fare and we... More

Best service we had in all of San Miguel. Fantastic steaks, as you would expect in an Argentine restaurant. Asparagus appetizer, mushroom ravioli also delightful.

Simple, tasty fare and good service. Closes early, and the hotel guests in the courtyard were a bit rowdy; but overall it was a nice dining experience.

This was our second visit to El Tomato and it was similar to our first. Not excellent but still a good place to go to have an Italian-like pasta dish. We probably should try their meat entrees next time since it's technically an Argentinian restaurant. Service was very good too.

A small group of us arrived late one evening and the lovely hostess was wonderful. We were seated and eating our bruschetta and guacamole while we decided what to order for our main course. The food was excellent and we will return.

expect small yet reasonable portions (not American gluttonous portion sizes). Ravioli with walnuts was good but not great. Guacamole could use more avocado and less tomato/extras. Of course, it's named El Tomato:). Mostly wish I just ordered something different.

We had visited El Tomato two years ago and had been talking about our experience since then - a very great experience. This time, we were disappointed. It seems like this restaurant needs the owner present in order to meet high expectations. We are not sure if the owner is the same as two years ago, but we were unable... More

During the month I was in San Miguel de Allende I visited El Tomato twice; first with my husband and sister and later just my husband. I really loved this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and well trained. The food was excellent. I had the polenta both times because it was so good that I just wanted to eat... More
