“a dining adventure you'll be sure to remember ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

don felix is a hidden gem in san miguel ...

it's a short cab ride, off the beaten path, through parts of san miguel you would never experience, arriving at a lovely dining experience tucked away in a neighborhood area ... they will call you a taxi for your return home ...

felix welcomes you with a warm smile at his family friendly, english speaking, clean, restaurant with terrific steaks and chops and excellent home made mexican food.

smiling, efficient and always happy service with a comfortable and attractive atmosphere... usually open thu/fri/sat only for dinner ... make a reservation ...

the patrons are usually a delightful blend of tourists and locals including mexicans - so you know it's good !

it seems to be a dining delight you have to know about, since they do very little advertising, it's mostly word of mouth and rarely shows up in any tourist books ...

everyone we take agrees ... worth the trip and a return visit ... you won't be disappointed ...

“Warm hospitality, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

When was the last time you entered a new restaurant, and the host greeted you with a genuine, warm smile and a firm handshake? Such a small thing and yet so rare that it was noticeable at Tacos Don Felix. We felt so welcome, and the food exceeded our expectations. Our group had steak, various types of enchiladas, and lots of freshly made guacamole. All really great. I have been to San Miguel many times, and yet this was the first time eating here - but it will definitely not be the last. Gracias!

“Always great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

I eat here quite often especially when I can't think of 'what sounds good" because they have a great variety of enchiladas, ribs, steaks, chicken, and everything is delicious and served quickly. The barbecue ribs or tenderloin steaks are wonderful if you don't want Mexican food. Whether you're a party of one or more they great you with the same warmth and friendly service. Definitely one of the best restaurants in town.

“Our Favorite in San Miguel de Allende”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

A highlight of our time in San Miguel is visiting this neighborhood favorite. Felix and his family do such a wonderful job of making you feel welcome in their restaurant. The food is excellent, the prices are reasonable, and the ambiance is elegant. The menu has something for everyone. Only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Don't miss this "hidden gem".

“Tacos don Felix has it all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

When you think of great food, amazing atmosphere your first thought is Tacos Don Felix!! The margarita's aren't to shabby either. When Don Felix arrives at your table to make sure everything is to your expectations, you know you have a host who is genuine. The enchiladas were sooo good. Eat drink and enjoy the taste of Mexico at its finest.
