Old establishment in Coronado. Seating outdoors in shade. Perfect for kids with kids menu. Swordfish tacos were a bit "chewy", but everything else good. My only complaint is that the "fried" ice cream isn't fried-sort of rolled in some crunchy stuff. If you remember the real stuff, then order it somewhere else.

We enjoy our family meals here. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The layout of the place is very nice. The food is solid. It's what you'd expect from a fast paced Mexican restaurant. The place attracts crowds so be prepared to wait a bit.

This restaurant is back through an alley way but the food/atmosphere and service is all excellent. We went with a large family (7) ranging in age from 11 to 66. Everyone was delighted with the restaurant. The atmosphere was festive and fun. The service was "the best". The food was some of the best Mexican food I have had. I... More

This is ALWAYS a stop for us when we are in Coronado, a tradition going back many years. This time was to grab a margarita before my next door neighbor returned home to Scottsdale. Staff is always attentive and the chips and salsa AND white sauce are perfect. The ultimate margarita is just that, enjoyed by all the adults. We... More

This restaurant has a great environment. Very lively and fun. While waiting for a table, you can serve yourself chips and salsa. The food is average, it doesn't have that authentic Mexican taste but it's still good.

I ate at this restaurant last night with a large party (20+). The waitstaff was attentive and we were well served. It is located in a charming courtyard retail area. A place that is kind of difficult to find, but has parking nearby. The atmosphere was fun - a bustling restaurant on a Thursday night and the small rooms make... More

There is nothing not to like. Great food, choice of private little dining areas or courtyard. Great drinks - reasonable prices, family friendly.

The restaurant is a little odd in how it is broken up into smaller rooms but the food was good and it had a festive feel to it.

Miguel's in Coronado was Great!! We had a large party and they were very busy and they were able to seat us right away. The food was very good, and they have this white nacho cheese sauce they serve with their chips and salsa. It's sooooo amazing! We could not stop eating it, I'd highly recommend this place. The service... More
