By far the best!

If you are visiting San Miguel you can't miss the famous red door that will lead you to El Pegaso. Amazing service, exquisite decor and out of this world food, combined all that with the great personality of their owners and bam! you scored a lifetime experience!

We waited just a little while for an indoor table and were very happy with their service. Breakfast is crazy around there, so expect the servers to be a little rushed. I ordered the Juevos Rancheros and the sauce was great and the eggs were perfect. Highly recommend for any visitor!

We went to this restaurant twice on our trip, and both times it was excellent. I was a big skeptical because of the large menu and wide variety of food types, but this was great for the kids, and everything we ordered was very tasty. We especially enjoyed the Seafood salad for two (a very large ceviche - yum!), goat... More

Two flights of narrow stairs open onto a lovely rooftop terrace. Sunbathing onion and cacti plants frame the pink and orange vistas of the gorgeous town of San Miguel, an architectural wonder. Old world artistry visible everywhere in the painted cornices and dramatic wood doors. Could Hugo make us feel any more at home? Por su puesto no! The food... More

One of my favorite San Miguel haunts, El Pegaso is a survivor. In the 10+ years I've been traveling to San Miguel, restaurants have come and gone, but this find remains. The ceviche, gazpacho, seafood entrees, and unusual "boutique" additions to the menu are consistent and very, very good (many even great). It's the place I tell new visitors to... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in SMA. They have great breakfasts there. I love the Robin Hood eggs, and they have a good version of Eggs Benedict. They also have delicious tamales. We had breakfast there this morning and noticed they had all new tables and chairs and that the walls were freshly painted. They still have the... More

The menu is varied, and this is an asset. The portions have grown smaller over the years, and not as much care taken with the flavors. It is convenient, and except for one very bad waiter, the service is excellent. The desserts are great, and the Asian dishes are pretty good. Breakfast is the better meal.

I have been to El Pegaso twice and really enjoyed the food, ambience and service. The restaurant is very clean and well-cared for. The welcome was very friendly and service very efficient and friendly without being rushed. I had tortilla soup which was nice followed by the best flan I have had in Mexico! All the desserts looked lovely, it... More
