One of the best restaurants in Morelia

Great, cozy, very warm atmosphere. Food is traditional Mexican and excellent. Not my number 1 but definitely a top 5 pick.

This uniquely decorated restaurant is the home of one of my personal favourite Mexican dishes. The tortillas are home made and always piping hot. The sauces are very tasty and I have not yet tried a dish I didn't thoroughly enjoy. They have a very complete menu and is honestly priced. Not too expensive but its high quality. A must... More

San Miguelito is a well-respected attraction here in Morelia. Our evening was enjoyable, but our meals did not reflect the level of excellence in many of these reviews. The interior is decorated with tons of wild Dia de Muertos art, it's truly amazing to see. Our starter (5 Chile Tacos) was very good, but my entré (Chile Relleno with Shrimp)... More

The best chicken mole I have ever had. Everyone else at the table really enjoyed their meals as well. The decorations are kind of strange. Filled with upside down crosses with St. Peter nailed to the cross upside down.

The restaurant has a rustic environment typical of the country. The restaurant has a corner dedicated to saint Antoine the match maker and the saint for the single ladies. The food and service are very good. I really like this place My recommendations are the "descubreme" arrachera and the tacos with the 5 chiles, a bit spicy though. Desserts: guayaba... More
