My wife and I literally happened upon this restaurant by walking out the back door behind an art gallery on 1300 block of Orange. We checked out the menu and decided to come back that evening for dinner. Our waiter Fredye brought us a big bowl of warm tasty nachos and two kinds of salsa, a traditional red and a... More

I both dinner and breakfast here, and the experiences were quite different. We gals is located in the courtyard of the El Cordova hotel, intertwined among some shops and the hotel grounds. It's a neat spot within walking distance of the beach. First, I had dinner and it was pretty lousy. I was really excited to eat here because I... More

My wife and I went here the day before our wedding. We found it on a brochure of Coronado and we thought we'd try it out. So glad we did! Beautiful outdoor seating and the food was authentic and flavorful. Our server was very friendly and prices were reasonable. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

The service was good. The meals were a bit "saucy" not the fresh mex I thought I'd get. Having said that, the food was high quality and delicious. Probably more of a style difference than anything. The atmosphere was very "San Diego" so that was great.

Fine for Mexican food. Outdoor patio is worth waiting for. Chips/salsa and bar while you wait to sit helps the time fly. The food is decent - like your average Mexican place at home. This place will satisfy your urge for Mexican food.

We had a very good lunch at this place. The chips and sauce are great! The fish toco's are to die for and the cold beers are great!

Our daughter & son-in-law chose Miguel's for their rehearsal dinner & brunch buffet for out of town guests after the wedding. It was the perfect location, & with most coming from the east coast, it was a real treat to eat high-quality Mexican food. We also rented the El Cordova Hotel's adjacent courtyard, so guests could be inside the restaurant... More
