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!!!

I had Poquito de Todo, a Little of Everything. It came on two large plates and included a taco with chopped fajita beef, a cheese quesadilla... More

After checking the reviews on several sites I decided to try El Mirasol for lunch. I ordered chicken enchiladas with a cream poblano sauce. I twas terrible. The chicken had no taste and was tough which is hard to do when it is shredded. The sauce was watery and runny. The chips were stale. The salsa was good. The service... More

Forget tex-mex, this is the real deal! I have been to countless Mexican restaurants over my lifetime, and this easily rates in the top 5. In addition, the staff was friendly and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere.

We come here once a week, it's so delicious. We love this place and the service is impeccable. The margaritas are pricey but DEF WORTH the price! I can't drink more than one. Come and enjoy!
