My wife and I arrived at 7:30 and were promptly seated. Casual atmosphere with seating inside or outside in the open air dining area. Alex was our waiter and spoke good English. He brought a plate of bread that is made at the restaurant with an olive oil and herb dip that was very good. You must order the olive... More

The La Virundela was recommended to us by another guest at our BnB. She said it was the best restaurant she had eaten at during her week in San Miguel. Being in the mood for a good steak, we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. I ordered the small ribeye and I was sure they brought me the... More

We wanted to give this place a try and I´m glad we did. Looking at the reviews it was notable that the lower reviews came before the new owner. The new owner is very sincere and really is interested in you enjoying the meal. The young chef is also quite interested in making sure you enjoy yourself. The Burrata salad... More

We dined at this fabulous restaurant on our second night in San Miguel - it is going to be hard to top....even the olives were delicious. This restaurant would easily & successfully fit into the Bay Area food scene. Service was warm but professional and the chef made time to personally bring us our entrees and gift us an inventive...

One of our favorites! The grilled mushrooms were fabulous with a blue cheese sauce. The steaks were tender and lightly flavored with a rub. We ate in the jardin under the orange trees and it was delightful! Wish we could have saved room for dessert but they did give us a little taste of refreshing cucumber sorbet. Don't miss this...

Although we have been in San Miguel many times, this is the first time we have been to La Virundela. It is a very pretty, relaxed setting both indoors and outside in the courtyard. The young man who served us was excellent. He really looked after us and was present without being intrusive. You could tell that it was important... More

What a delightful find! In the mood for something besides Mexican food, I searched on TripAdvisor for steaks and found this place. Little did I know we'd be sitting down to one of the best meals we've had in recent memory--here or anywhere else. My husband is a bit of a foodie and cannot stop raving about the grilled mushrooms... More

A group of us ordered a variety of meals for dinner here recently. We enjoyed ourselves, and the food was generally quite tasty and well presented. However, the wine by the glass was a third more costly than most other places, and the main dishes were up to double the cost of similar others. For a steak specialty house, I... More

Great food, excellent atmosphere, and stellar service. A real nice romantic little courtyard restaurant with helpful people and good English.

This place is a gem. The salads, steaks & sides were perfect. Prices are on the high side and worth every penny. The owner is engaging and the wait staff is charming. The courtyard is magnificent. There's nothing better than a great meal under the stars. Can't recommend it highly enough
