Description: Mama Mia Restaurant first opened it doors in San Miguel as a small restaurant with Italian, Mediterranean and Mexican food, and life music. More then 35 years later this place continues offering to its visitors, both locals and tourists, delicious food, life music and great ambiance. The restaurant is situated in the main Patio, there are also three Bar areas, Leonardos, La Barra, Mama's and a roof top terrace bar lounge La Terraza. Due to all these different areas and extended daily hours Mama Mia is the place to everyone, it offers a perfect place for a family dinner as well as for those who loves night life. You can discover young bands playing at the Mama's as well as Latin Jazz with world class quality. You can dance Salsa or song Karaoke. There is something here for everyone.... If you haven't been to Mama Mia you haven't been to San Miguel

This restaurant is highly rated in "Explorer's Guides" by Kevin Delgado. I found it less than excellent, but still good. I didn't think my visit to SMA was enriched by dining here. That being said the food was tasty and reasonably priced. There seemed to be more locals than tourists during my lunch visit. Always a good sign!

There is live guitar music and we know the guitarist. We go back because there is a wide variety of food from pizza to traditional Mexican dishes to seafood.

We have been to Mama Mia at least 6 times in the past two months. We have tried many of the food items on the menu and all have been good. I really love the pizza and the giant frozen margs are delicious

Went here for my birthday dinner. Enjoyed the live music and food! They sung the traditional Mexican birthday song after bringing me a nice dessert. The staff were so nice and courteous. I will definitely come back on my next visit to San Miguel de Allende!!!

I had dinner here with my family and the food was terrible. We has pizza and pasta and both were bad.

The bathrooms were not clean. This was high season and the minimum you would expect is that the reataurant had cleaning staff for the restrooms

Maybe the place is ok for a late night drink, but do not go there for the food.

Hola Tom_M71,

Thank you for sharing your personal experience at our place with the tripadvisor community. Every opinion is important for us and yours will help us to improve our daily services in the high season. I would like to mention, that as in every good restaurant we do have service cleaning our restrooms at least twice an hour, though it is clear that in the high season we should make it nonstop due to the quantity of visitors we have then. Thanks for reminding us and our apology, you couldn't enjoy your time at Mama Mia the way the most people do. Will be nice if you give us a second chance and thanks again for your review.

All the best
Mama Mia
