Very good

Very good mexican food in a pleasant patio style dining area. The queso is awesome as we're the Miguel's Ultimate Margaritas. The tamales were full of pork and very good. Would highly recommend.

Needed dinner after going to the beach in Coronado and Miguel's was a great choice. So many menu items that looked yummy but settled on the carne Asada torta. Ordered corn tortillas on the side and they were the best homemade tortillas ever. The first bite was just as good as the last. The rice and beans were fresh and... More

Three of us ate here and we all agreed it was some of the best Mexican food we have had. We especially loved the jalapeno queso dip that came with the chips!

Beautiful outdoor setting complete with fairy lights and good overhead heaters. Loved the complimentary chips and dip. Staff were really friendly. They made a few errors with the kids order which were corrected, but took time. Could have offered them a little extra to compensate. Food was good, but not fantastic. Well priced.

The food here was delicious and made all members of our party happy- including the 6 year old whose idea of Mexican is chips and salsa! (BTW he had chicken tenders and LOVED them) The Fish Tacos were amazing, and the Skirt steak fajitas were too! Great selection of local beers and the Sangria was delish. We dined outside on... More

We were staying at the Del across the street, so decided to walk across for some good Mexican food. Taco Bell rivals this restaurant. The food (although moderately priced) is flavorless. I had the Carne Asada (flavorless!). The guac was not fresh and again no flavor. Our server was training and was being coached by another server about our table... More

Loved the patio atmosphere in center courtyard - easy access. Our server was tied up with a big party so someone else took our order instead of making us wait. Food was really excelletn too.

Four of us had lunch at Miguel's and we were all happy with our choices. The chips with salsa and another cheesy jalapeno dip were delicious!! The men had the junior platters and ate everything. I had the fiesta salad with chicken and had to force myself to stop eating, savory dressing and very fresh ingredients. We would go back... More

Chips, salsa, and queso when seated. Ordered pitcher of refreshing margaritas that filled 5 glasses. Ordered quesadilla, chimichanga, surf and turf burrito, and beef burrito. Waiters excellent. Everything very good, but expensive. But, hey, you are on Coronado Island, after all.

This place was recommended by a number of folks when we arrived to Coronado, so we were pretty pumped to go and were severely let down. it was a Saturday night, so we expected a busy restaurant. We were sat promptly for our dinner reservation at 9:30pm. It took a terribly long time just to get a glass of water... More
