The Posada de las Minas would be rated #1 in any case, since it's the only dining option one can count on in Mineral de Pozos (others come & go pretty quickly). But fortunately it's an excellent option. Four of us had 4 meals there over a 20-day period on a recent weekend, and each one was first class. The breakfast served to hotel guests is wonderful; 2-3 a la carte choices; eggs, hotcakes, etc.. Other menu options our group tried were the chiles rellenos mixtos (the very best of this very common dish -- no breading on this one), quesedillas w/shrimp & spinach, the chickenburger, the posada salad (wonderful), the filet mignon (very good) and the grilled salmon. Great variety of traditional Mexican dishes and more international choices. Nice wine list, too. Service was good to very good; very gracious staff. And a lovely setting; choices of tables near the fireplace in winter, on an inner patio (cooler) or outdoor patio in the sun. Charming traditional Mexican decor; interesting collection of birds in their cages sprinkled around the property. Their cantina serves an impressive array of tequilas, too; is well patronized by the locals.

This hotel has the most amazing garden and set of patios in which to enjoy a leisurely and delicious meal. The service can be slow, yet go prepared for that and you will leave satisfied. The food is wonderful and they aim to please. Definately worth a visit. Try a non-standard margarita, too!

What a lovely restaurant. We had a delightful, relaxing lunch on the patio with blue sky above. All around us were flowers and chirping birds. I ordered chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, and they were the best I had during my recent 10-day visit to San Miguel and surrounding areas. That also means they were the best chicken enchiladas con mole that I've ever eaten. Everything we ate was fresh and full of flavor. Someone at our table had chicken with goat cheese, which was also quite delicious. Definitely try one of the excellent desserts, especially the carrot cake. Don't forget to check out the charming frog sink in the restroom.

Posada de las Minas was recommended to us by the owners of El Secreto B&B so we ate there our first day. It was outstanding! I had the "3 Moles" plate and they were some of the best moles I have had in 3 years of living in Mexico. My wife ordered shrimp stuffed chiles rellenos and they were very good as well. They serve an appetizer of "totopos" (corn chips), fried plantain chips and a couple of salsas and they were very good as well.

We enjoyed our meal so much that we came back the next day. I had the salmon burger and my wife had a filet mignon with jalapeño jelly sauce. Both dishes were excellent again.

The prices are very reasonable and the service was perfectly adequate. I have grown accustomed to terrible service in restaurants in Mexico but the service here was much better than the average.
