“A top restaurant experience in San Miguel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

The four of us had multiple appetizers and shared the whole, Pacific Red Snapper baked in a salt crust. Wow, oh so tender and moist, likely the best snapper we've ever had. Highly recommended. We dined with several bottles of great wines and to the sounds of a great baby grand piano player. The young chef is attentive and helpful and ready to give advise. Our waiter was always there and helpful. The atmosphere is modern Mexico, beautiful indirect lighting, with warm earthy colors. This evening meal with new friends was one of the best we've had in San Miguel so we'll be back.

“Not sure why people like this place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Food was really very average, very over-priced for what you were served, and the staff was totally inattentive. We have been twice to try to see what all the fuss was about, and felt disappointed both times. There are far better restaurants in SMA than this one.

Mi Vida served the best meal of our stay. A splurge, but worth it!

“Highly recomendable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2010

I had many dinners and lunches at MiVida. Davide, the owner and cook is always very helpful and his cuisine is outstanding. Try the fish in the salt, it is as good as any upscale NYC Restaurant. I like his creativity and attention to the customer.

“What a Great Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

My husband and I stumbled upon Mivida and we more than pleased. We loved the food and presentation. The decor was beautiful. We are here for a month and have tried many of San Miguel's restaurants and this one is one of the best. We have guests this week and we will definately be taking them there!
