“Amazingly fresh and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I had an amazing authentic mexican meal, complete with tequila from a very extensive tequila list. The server was very knowledgeable and friendly. I had one of the best salads I've ever eaten; fresh cubes of crisp green apple with mango, cucumber, and avocado tossed with fresh cilantro and lime juice.... WOW. I then had the enchiladas with refried beans and rice and again was absolutely beyond impressed with the taste. I ate vegetarian but my boyfriend ate the meatier versions and he was equally as enthralled at his meal. Hands down THE BEST mexican restaurant I have ever eaten at.

“Yummy and Super Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This restaurant was a hit on our last visit to Toronto. The margaritas were to die for!!, Having spent time living with a Mexican in Mexico, I was pleasantly pleased to enjoy some authentic Mexican cuisine at Milagro. Our server went out of his way to be helpful regarding the menu. He took time to listen to my food allergy concerns and made some helpful suggestions\substitutions with me in mind. The atmosphere was delightful. We dined on the out door patio....very nice. I felt that I was back in Mexico. I would definitely recommend that you visit Milagro when in Toronto.

“try the margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Margaritas frozen or not - in BIG glasses check the photo of my pal with hers. I had the fish tacco (ap size) but enough for a main meal.
Love it

“Great mexican food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I went there with her a friend who heard of it! We were not disapointed!
First the hostess right away went to check on a free booth for us, way much better.
Then the waitress a true mexican, she knew the menu by heart and my friend and I love speaking spanish in those restaurants! And for once the waitress was nice and mexican!!
The food was amazing! I had the burrito with a chipotle so good, so spicy the way I love it!
If you want to have a good time you'll be pleased!

“Terrific food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I never expected to find a decent Mexican restaurant in Toronto, but went here because it was so close to my hotel. I had a great time! The wait-persons were friendly and gave good advice, and most important, the food was delicious. And it was reasonably priced. I highly recommend it.
