You will love The Restaurant. The food is delicious. The living wall in the rear of the dining room is wonderful.

Amazing from start to finish. The tortilla soup was the best we have ever had in the world. Followed by amazing Empanadas and mushroom risotto. Great location and vibe. If you are in San Miguel this is a must visit restaurant

they couldnt event do mexican meal for the independent day. The prices are very high ( obviously for Americans as locals would never go there ).

We had the heirloom tomato and burrata, the roast chicken with chickpeas, the rib eye and the lemon tart. Every bite was special. The food was first rate and the ambiance was too. It was a memorable meal, without being too formal or stuffy. Would...recommend highly.More

Probably the best restaurant in town. We had the cheese tray before dinner with cocktails and it was fabulous. Beautiful restaurant! Our dinner was delicious and inexpensive.

Our two couples were seated without a reservation, which is nice. Food and service are high quality and professional.

We had dinner at The Restaurant and were so impressed with pretty much every aspect of our experience. We had a reservation, which is fortunate since they were crowded even on a Tuesday night. The service was wonderful and the wait staff was attentive and...polite, making sure had everything we needed. The ambiance was lovely and e really enjoyed the music they had playing throughout the evening. The food was outstanding from start to finish. Our margaritas and mojitos were yummy, and the shaved brussel sprout salad and octopus appetizers were both delicious. For the main course, the salmon and the pork chop were both cooked to perfection, and the portions were very healthy. We would absolutely return for another meal!More

I've been to SMA 3 times and eaten here each visit, twice this time. It's consistently the best food I've had. A large, lovely outdoor patio that has never been busy (walk in fine but I've always been during summer) and large menu. Love the...combination with Asian flavors and the quality and prep are on point. I had the tuna tacos twice and they were impeccable both times, so juicy and tasted like just caught. Well done, people!More

Start with the beef carpaccio. The presentation is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and it was truly delicious. I had the duck entree and my husband had mani mani Veracruz. Both were wonderful. We topped off the evening with the burnt caramel ice cream sundae....Wow! Such a great way to spend our last evening in San MiguelMore
