“Avoid this one”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The only redeeming factor for la Posadita is the roof top view. On my last visit, the food was barely passable, and the service inattentive and disorganized. Some of our orders were mixed up with those of other tables and the sequence of serving our dishes was out of whack. I wouldn't return

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This used to be a favourite for Mexican dining. The ambiance is lovely with great views. The food quality has slipped and no view can make up for a poor dining experience.

Our long time San Miguel friends told us this was their fav Mexican restaurant in SMA. We liked it so much we ate there three times in a week.

“Mexican Restaurant in the Heart of San Miguel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a Mexican Restaurant in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, La Posadita is a very good idea. The best part of this restaurant is that it's located on a rooftop.

The menu has a variety of great dishes from different area's of Mexico. So have at least a 4 course meal.

“Best restaurant in San Miguel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Located just a block southwest of the Jardin on Aldama, the entry is narrow and as is often the case, does not provide a clue as to what lies inside. The reataurant and bar are on the third floor; a delightful outdoor terrace with splendid views (very reminiscent of the Cote d'Azur in France). Stone walls, tables with umbrellas (and gas heaters on cool winter nights), and not to tightly seated. Outstanding service with English well spoken.
Food was impressive. We ate in more than 15 restaurants in San Miguel and never were disappointed, but :a Posadita stood out. One memorable dish was the artisan cheese tray with a selection of fine Mexican cheeses (goat, cow, ewe), served with grapes, roasted and candied pecans, toasted bread, and sliced pears. Our group ate many different dishes and were pleased with all of them.
