“Great View and That's About It!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Just returned from a Friday comida at Miralago, and out of our party of ten, five were disappointed in the food they were served. Too salty was the main complaint with both the rabbit and lamb dishes, and the fish platter came garnished with un-rinsed capers which made it salty and briny also. I ordered the Zirahuen Lamb which turned out to be mutton instead. It seems to be a common practice in many restaurants nowadays to use the terms lamb and mutton (from sheep over 2 yrs. old) interchangeably. Tough and chewy was the only way to describe the consistency. Beef filets were done properly,drinks were good, food presentation was artfully done and the table service was adequate, although the wait staff could have been a little more helpful in explaining in saucing options for some of the dishes. Majority opinion... Nice setting/Poor Value.

“A Table With A View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely and leisurely lunch here recently on a beautiful afternoon. His steak dish and my chicken dish were expertly prepared, artfully presented and incredibly tasty. Fortunately, we were in a very relaxed mood, enjoying the view of the lake and mountains, so the slow service wasn't a problem for us. My one tiny criticism, though, is that a restaurant of this quality would do better to provide something other than the typical white roll in its bread basket. An offering of carrot, banana, zucchini, or some specially-made artisan bread would have made this an even finer dining experience.

“Such a great place for a terrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The place is a unique restaurant, the food it's acceptable, but the service oh my god it's really terrible, since we arrives til we paid the bill took at least four hrs, if you visit it you have to be really calm in order to enjoy the magnificent view and the calm atmosphere! Never coming back

“Original and wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Visited this restaurant with friends having been recommended by the owners of the Posada Yolihuani in Patzcuaro. The trout and strawberries was original and deemed delicious by our friends and their kids voted the brownie as "the best" that they've ever eaten - the carrot cake was pretty damn good too!
The view from the restaurant is spectacular and we really enjoyed the whole experience.

“Muy bonito setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

This restaurant has such a beautiful setting, the grounds are impeccable and the view from anywhere either inside or outside is so beautiful. Largo Zirahuen is one of those special places (although I am biased) and just sitting overlooking in a fairly elegant setting is heavenly. Just had drinks, but definitely will try comida there soon!
