“We were underwhelmed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Pueblo Viejo, Umaran 6, (just off the Jardin), San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, tel. 415-152-4977. It has a nice interior design and we were told that what we ordered is not typically on menus. Since we weren’t impressed we won’t recommend the restaurant. We shared everything and ordered one “Dried Noodle” described as “traditional dried noodle by ‘Dona Anita’ served with avocado, pork rinds, cream, chipotle, chile and fresh cheese” or “Fideos secos, tradicionales fideos secos de Dona Anita con guarnicion de aguacate, chicharron, crema, chipotle, queso fresco” (M$50). The noodles were thin and short with a tomato sauce—not too tasty. Around the noodles was the avocado and the chicharron. The cream was on top. This is not a dish that is going to get much press. For our main we had a dish from the farm (or yo ni pio)—the Poblano Mole Chicken Breast (M$150) served with rice and corn tortillas (“Pechuga con Mole Poblano acompañada con arroz y tortillas de maiz”). The mole was more chocolaty than most. It was good. However the chicken breast was thin and dry and very difficult to cut with the dull knife we had. We also ordered Grilled Vegetables (M$45) or Verduras a la parilla. They were very tough and dry (how can you grill a carrot and turn it into wood?) This was not a memorable meal.

“Shocked by negative reviews - excellent food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

We wanted non- super tourista dining in Centro and hotel recommended this spot. Food was excellent (jicama-wrapped tacos: de morirse), great pozole and fajitas, perfect Margaritas. Environment and service top-notch too.

“Delicious mexican food, great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

First night in San miguel we were very dissapointed on the italian restaurant we chose... Pueblo Viejo definetely is a great choice to have a mexican meal... I ordered the tacos del pueblo and my husband ordered an avocado steak... Both were sooo good... We also ordered jicama tacos with shrimp and tuna... Also delicious... Service was also great... If you don't want to go to the trouble of finding a good restaurant you should really visit this place.

“Chewed gum in mashed potatoes!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

My wife and I ordered the trout in almond sauce. For starters, the fish size was rather small, and the price was no the mid-high range. Nothing special about the flavor, the almond sauce was kind of bitter, and to top this unpleasant experience, I found a chewed-gum inside my mashed potatoes. After alerting the waiter about this, he immediately took the plate and disappeared for more than 15 minutes. When he came back with the check (with all charges included), he insisted it was not gum, and tried to convince me it was cheese. Unfortunately, I had the thing in my mouth and chewed it. I know the difference between cheese and gum, and that was definitely gum. We did not even receive an apology. Not a place to go back to or to recommend. Absolutely nothing good about it.
