Authentic experience and great food!

We loved the experience at Fonda! Our server had been there for 23 years and not only provided excellent service but educated us about the history of the cuisine along the way. We had the queso which was good but very rich. I loved the stuffed relleno which was like nothing I have ever tasted. It... read more

I had not been to this restaurant since I moved to Maui in 1993. I was very pleased that the quality of food was as wonderful as I remembered. Reservations are a must. We were there on a Friday night and were very lucky to be able to find a table in the bar that would seat 7. The waiter... More

Yes! As a world traveler I can say that this is The Best Mexican cuisine in the US. Authentic and Delicious. The chef infuses the taste with authentic Mexican herbs and peppers from the rich Mexican soil.The architecture is a beautiful Hacienda. The brunch on Sunday is the best of the best to try because you can taste a little... More

If you haven't been, put it on the calendar. Especially the Sunday Brunch. It's a bit pricey at $39/person but it is an event. Rarely do you see at chef at a Mexican restaurant, but there is certainly one here - he's out mingling with the crowd and helping to serve the food. The food, ah, there's the rub. This... More

I had wanted to go to Fonda San Miguel for years and finally made a reservation for 7 o'clock on our 28th anniversary. The food was quite good and our waiter was helpful, attentive and charming. The evening was spoiled however by a surly and rude hostess who informed me our reservation was for 5:30 and we had missed it.... More

We went for brunch at Fonda San Miguel and really loved all the presentations. It wasn't cheap - around $40 for buffet style brunch but everything was just delicious. Lots of real mexican dishes with chicken, beef, pork and beautiful desserts.

When I had moved away from Austin, and I would come back and visit, Fonda San Miguel made me want to move back every time. When I sit in that room, I don't want to leave. The decor transports you to another time and place, with old world charm and elegance. The food and drinks are amazing. The dining room... More

The quality of food is exceptional and the service impeccable. The drinks, a mojito and frozen margaritas were average.

This place is very well hidden and comes alive at night. Menu selection was well balanced and a bit heavy on appetizers. Very clean, outstanding service and friendly ambiance. Food was fresh, well presented and authentic!
