Good Food, Super View, Fantastic Service

Out in San Deigo for work, and was told Miguels was the place to go for good Mexican Food. I am sure due the proximity, that there are LOTS of good places, but Miguels did not let us down. We sat outside (as you must in Coronado) with all the dog lovers PLUS there was no wait, and the weather... read more

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.

Not sure what happened to this place, but it I would take a pass. The fejitas were bad, dried over cooked shrimp and tasteless vegetables. But what was weird was the answer I got when I asked about the salsa. One of the bowls of salsa was sour and when I asked the waiter about it, he said the texture... More

My daughter and I showed up close to closing time. We debated going Into the restaurant at the last minute but we were hungry. We got exceptional service plus great food. I would highly recommend Miguel's. The beef rellano is the best. I crave the jalapeño white sauce.

Waiting for our room at the Del, we went over to Miguel's for some tacos! Food was good and atmosphere was awesome! Long wait for food, but we didn't have anywhere else to be.

What fun we had here. Moderately priced and an extensive menu we had a wonderful time here. We love our meal. The place was packed with all sorts of people, trendy as anything. We would go back in a second. Loved the margaritas and fish tacos

We love to go to Miguel's Cocina when we visit Coronado. The food is great and dining on the patio is lovely. The white jalapeño dip is a favorite & give the coconut lime mojitos a try.
