Description: The Midi or the South, are the different names that the south zone of France receives, a land full of history, architecture, culture and tradition. The midi is distinguished by having a warm and very familiar climate, its excellent environment made it a spectacular place. The music entertains visitors, who enjoy a good drink after a tour of the magical alleys of Guanajuato. Inspired by these distant European lands, it's like "El Midi" combines different flavors, aromas and becomes a delight for our guests. "Welcome to the Midi"

Upstairs and across from a relatively new gallery space, this was perfect for a celebratory meal. Though the menu was French/Continental, the music was Mexicano all the way, sort of a Lila Downs band the night we were there! Our picks: salad with goat cheese, lamb stew and beef wellington.

This restaurant on the second floor of an old house hidden behind the plaza del Baratillo is superb.

The menu is authentic midi and includes a nice salad bar where my demanding companion found all for her vegetarian needs. I had the onion soup and was very disappointed but will likely give it a second chance.

A top restaurant by any high standard- excellent dishes, service, ambience, and centrally located in the most beautiful building in Guanajuato, Don't miss a visit to the rooftop terrace! We have dined there several times this month and it is consistently excellent. Salads, fish, and wine list is all a very good value to boot. Guanajuato has several excellent restaurants but this is at the top of my list, thank you so much for creating a great dining experience for us!

This was a delicious dining experience with friends near the upper balcony. The meal started with a sampling of Mexican wine distilled in France and a beet appetizer, following this opening, we enjoyed our main meals of pasta with chrozio sausage and portebello mushrooms and a salmon dish. The meal was finished with a exquisite cream desert with a medley of fruit. Don't forget to checkout the rooftop terrace!

El Midi Bistro will always be my first choice for a most pleasurable dining experience in Guanajuato. We were there with friends on a Thursday night and although the place was packed with young student-types, we were seated immediately at a table of 6. The menu is extensive offering a variety of French-type selections. My french onion soup was well cooked and hearty with a thick layer of cheese on top. I would have, however, preferred it to have been more flavorful with assorted herbs and spices. We loved the ambience of the restaurant and the live music was the perfect accompaniment to our evening I look forward to a repeat visit whenever we return to Guanajuato, which hopefully will be often.
