The food was good. The server was slow but he was busy. ?covering too many tables. The location was good and lot of parking. We enjoyed the food. It was different than your usual Mexican food. We cleaned our plates. Will repeat It again. Location was good.

Heard about Miguel's from a friend and the locals. Delicious! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and yummy food. The Queso Fundido Mar Y Tierra was absolutely fabulous. Healthy serving for two and could be a meal for one.

Really liked this restaurant. Right in the heart of Coronado. The food was delicious. I had enchiladas and my husband had fajitas. We both loved our food. And they had good chips and salsa to start. They have great margaritas too. We definitely recommend Miguel's concina.

We hadn't been to Miguel's before but had always heard good things. Don't you just love it when places live up to your expectations. We were a large party (8) and it was a holiday but they accommodated us without too bad a wait. We ordered a variety of food and drinks. Everything was yummy. Their queso dip is to... More

Nice atmosphere (ate inside), prompt and friendly service. The salsa and jalapeno cream are delicious on their own. Ordered the guacamole as it was a must try from other reviews. A little pricey at $9.50 but very good. We had carnitas and carne asada tacos. Portions are large and the food is excellent.

I normally avoid going to Mexican restaurants, having grown up eating it every day there is nothing like mom's cooking. I have, however, adapted my expectations of "Mexican" food to an Americanized version. Having said that, every time we are on the island, we eat a meal here. Be it breakfast or dinner, we know we will get consistently good... More

This place was the best restaurant on the island. The evenings get crowded so get here early or late. The food was awesome without the high prices, obviously a favorite with the locals as well as the tourists.

After a day at the beach, we wanted a casual, fun, and good place to eat. A local shop owner recommended this place to us and we loved it! The food was amazing and the staff was wonderful.

We spend the winters on Coronado and always enjoyed meals at Miguel's. Last year we noticed some decline in food quality. This year it is almost inedible. Yesterday we ordered enchiladas suizas and chimichangas. Both tasted like they had been made days ago and reheated in the microwave. Mine was just lukewarm in the middle. I looked around at other...
