We like to pick places we can't get back in Houston. This place lived up to the expectations. Not that the food is over the top, it is that everything is on point. You won't mind paying a little more for having it all in unison. The known for dishes were fabulous suggestions. We shared an appetizer, main course, and... More

The restaurant is very crowded, noisy and busy so make sure you call for a reservation. The decor is very impressive with handcrafted dragon figures and interesting paintings and photographs in the several rooms. Tables are close together. The buffet offerings are many and varied from time to time. We had a choice of chicken mole, shrimp in green sauce,... More

The mole enchiladas are excellent. Also, meals come with fresh tortillas which are a big plus. The only negative is that they get busy so you may have to wait, but that comes with serving good food.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Fonda San Miguel. Since this was our first visit there, our server provided some excellent suggestions and even a taste of mole just so that we could experience it. My husband had a fantastic Mixiote made with lamb shank and I enjoyed my duck enchiladas with a spinach/poblano sauce. The atmosphere in the restaurant... More

Exceptional from start to finish! It is a beautiful restaurant in the style of a high end restaurant in Mexico. The menu is unique and they offer specials as well. The rellenos dishes were absolutely delicious. The prices are commensurate with the food quality & level of service. We really enjoyed our experience!

After a four hour drive to the state capital to celebrate my eldest sweetheart's birthday, she chose Fonda San MIguel, an Austin foodie's landmark. A magnificent choice! Our waiter, Shane, was the essence of professionalism. HIs recommendations were perfect. The setting is lovely with its colonial Mexican charm. We arrived at the magical time of Happy Hour thus our budget... More

I love Fonda San Miguel! The drinks are fantastic. The service is so professional. The servers know the menu and are great at providing advice and information. The food is, of course, sublime. Some of the best in Austin. I'd give dish recommendations, but it's easier to say that everything is good and don't get something that you can get... More

This is our go-to place for special occasions. Not your typical Tex-Mex food. The food is delicious and fresh - both corn and flour tortillas are made in house and the freshness shows. Their chile con queso is superb - not your standard Velveeta-based queso. We always fill up on the queso and corn and flour tortillas (see above) before... More

Well we couldn't go to Texas and not have some good Mexican food, could we?! A very pretty restaurant, not your typical modern place. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Beer was ok but the margarita's were very well received. The tortilla chips and salsa were homemade and delicious. I was recommended ENCHILADAS DE MOLE POBLANO which had an interesting sauce...
