No visit to the island is complete without a meal here! Great service and great food. We shared the swordfish tacos and they were delicious. You can often find coupons for a free appetizer at the visitor center. Tasty margaritas as well.

Stopped for a quick lunch. Andres our server was very pleasant and helpful. We both had fish tacos and split the quac and chips. The food was great and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Service here is faster than most places I have been to and the quality of the food is from good to superb. Free chips and salsa, too. If you're a small eater, share your order but if you are a large eater, one order is enough to fill you up to your nose. I only wish their fresh salsa could... More

Our family loves Miguel's. We stop here whenever we are on the island. Their food and drinks are great and the waiters/waitresses are attentive and helpful.

This is our favorite place to eat. The food and atmosphere are great plus it is walking distance from our hotel. The surrounding shops are wonderful.

Each of us enjoyed our food, but we all agreed we've had better elsewhere. The ladies room was VERY nice, and the service was excellent.

What a fantastic find! We were not so hungry, a little tired, and overwhelmed by the food choices - and long lines, as we drove along the main street in Coronado. Some how we settled on Miguel's Cocina, and a relatively short wait for an inside table. Then the grand surprise, chips came with both red and a warm white... More

I love Miguel's in Coronado. There food is wonderful and the white sauce is the best. Goes great on chips and on tacos. I can never get enough of Miguel's Mexican food. Plus after we eat we enjoy walking around town and browsing in all the stores.

This place is tucked away off the main street but is worth looking for! (all the locals know it, so just ask!) We heard that they serve the best Mexican in Coronado, so we tried it and enjoyed it very much. The drinks are good - a nice selection of margaritas and other drinks, and the happy hour prices are...

Truly a hidden gem... If you're driving down the street, you could easily miss it. It's located off the street, in the back courtyard of the El Cordova Hotel. Some rooms exit right out onto the patio. But once you find it, you're in for a treat. It starts with the white cheese sauce you get with your chips. Sure,... More
