Since we were staying at the El Cordova we had to try this place. Fabulous atmosphere and really good food and service. And we can vouch for the fact that they were always hard at work keeping the place clean! Be prepared to wait for a table for dinner, it gets really busy, but there's places to sit and they... More

We went here on the recommendation of friends while taking an afternoon trip to visit Coronado and the Hotel Del. The courtyard location, surrounded by a small hotel and shop,s was very quaint. The atmosphere was very lively and it was very popular. Parking was difficult and I gave up and used the valet, which at $5 dollars was really... More

I moved to the Midwest from California 4 years ago and this was my first trip back. I was looking forward to some great Mexican food but didn't find here.

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. Very busy and loud. Drinks were great. Food was authentic and delicious! My entire family enjoyed the meal and we all had different things. My advice is to make a reservation.

The wait at Miguel's during peak seasons is sometimes up to an hour. I don't know if the food is worth it but as far as Mexican food goes on the island it is perhaps the best you are going to find. Service is good once seated and it's tucked away inside the El Cordova hotel courtyard. Centrally located and... More

This is a fun restaurant for families, as the outdoor seating area is very casual and can accommodate larger parties. Food portions were good and pricing was reasonable.

My kids had 2 plain fish tacos & a cheese quesadilla with fries. I had the Miguels mariscos which was amazing from beginning to end, my wife had the chimichanga which she said... More
