I was born and raise din SA and I have found no better place to eat. We eat there almost every Friday night. High quality food and great service. You can sit inside or out on the patio any time of year. They just close it up and turn the heater on. I have to agree with other posters it... More

The reason I love this place is for the Margarita's and salsa! Their Margarita on the rocks is spot on, not too limey, or sweet. I can NOT stand super sweet margaritas or super limey that give you heart burn and your teeth want to rot out.... All El Mirasols margs do, is get your super wasted after one! So... More

I can't believe that I have waited so long to go to this restaurant. The food was delicious. We started out with some Campusinas. Delightful. Our main courses were all to our expectations or above. Very good food. The indoor atmosphere is a little dark. We will likely sit outside next time. I am likely to become a regular.

El Mirasol is always a must stop when i n San Antonio. Since I usally stay on the northside where the selection of Restaruants seems to be better for me, this place has great outdoor dining, with great drinks and outstanding service. Nice place to kick back!

El Mirasol always delivers the perfect ambiance, good drinks, and fantastic Mexican food. The fish plates with the various spaces is always a ht and the top shelf margarita is one of the best we have ever had. (Suggest 1 1/2 at the most)

Lived in San Antonio for 10 years and this was my favorite haunt. Best salsas and pico de gallo in San Antonio. Must have had every dish on the menu. Great food. Best margaritas in Texas. I truly miss El Mirasol and they have spoiled my taste buds. Florida doesn't compare! Servers are fabulous, atmosphere is great, food is tasty.... More

Was looking forward to this restaurant based on the reviews. Although the food was not bad, I had the chile relleno and the wife had the snapper plate, it just wasn't good enough to make another trip. I just got tired of going to Palenque Grill and was looking for something different but so far they have the best Mexican... More

Before you come to the El Mirasol, I would recommend that you check out the menu online. The extensive menu will have you trying to make entree decisions that will include everything on the menu!!!
