Great food, great atmosphere. Love to go here for drinks. Brunch is too pricey, especially for kids.

First stop coming in from Houston on a Sunday will always be the beautiful Fonda San Miguel. A bit pricey at $ 38.95 pp but well worth it.

For a special occasion this is the place to go and celebrate and enjoy truly authentic and delicious mexican flare. Though the athmosphere (even with the holiday decorations) seems a little tired and some of the decor could be refreshed. The waiter was attentive and on top of his game. The hostess not so much. I had mentioned that we... More

Fonda San Miguel was the first place I visited when I moved to Austin, and I've been back a couple of times since. It's really quite lovely and serves more traditional Mexican food with style and flair. The room itself is very nice - colorfully decorated and tastefully lit, making it a great place for a date. The ambience is... More

We loved the Lamb Mixiote, Green Enchiladas and Crepas de Cajeta. Really enjoyed the ambiance and the excellent service. We will be back.

We went there as a party of seven and were seated after an hour wait. They have limited reservations but were told when we called that we could come without reservations. It was well worth the wait and next time we will call further in advance for reservations. The bar was nice. The food was delicious. Most of the group... More

We went to Fonda San Miguel's for the first time with our friends who recommended going just to see the décor. The décor was a compilation of everything you might see on a trip through Mexico (we used to live there). My 'special request" Margarita was very good and our stuffed poblano chile and guacamole was also. Not quite as... More

Very good mexican food in a nice setting. The décor I very nice and all the wait staff we interacted with were very friendly. We had seafood, pork, and lamb dishes and all were fantastic. Certainly a decently fancy Mexican restaurant with great food would eat there again.

Love this place. Most of parking is valet but there is a little lot off to the side that has parking as well. Great bar area and the starters are exceptional. Don't miss the lamb chops. Everything is true Mexican food not Tex-mex.
