Ok Mexican

Cute location but food is just ok if you're used to great Mexican food. Get there early if you don't want to wait as it always seems to be crowded.

Loved the outdoor patio setting. Great for families with kids also. The food was served quickly and was delicious! Definitely coming back here when in town.

A friend took me here for my birthday. It's in beautiful Coronado and the weather was perfect. Wish I could say the same for the restaurant. First of all the food was good. I ordered the fish tacos and they were above average. The rice and beans...run of the mill. We had to ask twice for cheese sauce and chips... More

We asked the concierge at the Marriott for a recommendation for Mexican food- he immediately said Miguel's. It is tucked back off the street- very cute! They have a great menu and a large drink list. Everything we had was great! Our server was wonderful and didn't skip a beat. This is a great place to I eat in Coronado!

Service, food, drinks all amazing. Carnitas tacos were flavorful and plenty of food after eating the wonderful chips & queso. Margaritas hit the spot too. The place was jammed on a Monday night but they have an efficient text system to let you know when table is ready. Would return again and again.

After an hour wait the food was ok. Could be that there was a large private party going on and the staff was over worked.

This place was right in our hotel. There was always wait at the door, but after eating the food I know why. Everything we had was delicious. Queso Fundido, Calamari Rellenos, and shrimp enchiladas. I highly recommend this place.

Another great lunch at Miguel! I always eat here every time I come to San Diego! Great food, great service and the restaurant is really pretty. I have never been disappointed and I have eaten there a lot. Very highly recommended! If you have a car, park on Adella avenue. There are parking meters along the street and I always... More

Ate at Brigantine and saw that Miguel's was co-owned so we looked it up and saw the great reviews. We weren't impressed. Our server was friendly but slow, and the food was average to below average. I wouldn't not go back here.

This is tucked away across the street from Hotel Coronado, and somewhat hard to find. The free chips come with great salsa and a cheese dip (both were excellent) Margs were great, We also had chimichangas that were outstanding.
