Description: Chef Ana Lilia Galindo serves up a globe-spanning menu in Chamonix's cozy, hearth-warmed dining room. The specialty here is the aptly named Swiss fillet— medallions of beef wrapped in ham and cheese. But frequent fliers will also be pleased by traditional Mexican dishes like beef-stuffed poblano chiles, spicy Sri Lankan curry, Vietnamese spring rolls, and an array of fresh pastas. In fine weather, the pretty outdoor terrace is a lovely place to linger.

The food is prepared with such care. i have been going here since they opened both when i lived in SMA and on subsequent visits. It never disappoints. You have a choice of intimate courtyard or indoor dining. A touch of France in SMA, how nice!

The patio setting in this ancient building is romantic, charming, serene. The service is professional and courteous. This is one of my very favorite restaurants in San Miguel and I adore Ana Lilia, the chef who turns out consistently marvelous food at reasonable prices!

We found our favorite in SMA: it has been our third stay in 3 years and we love this charming place of a restaurant. This summer we had luck, we enjoyed twice in the patio although we very much also like it inside. The food is a fine Mediterranean choice - always fresh and surprising. We love the hand written menus, which will be shown to you at the table and in any selection we made, we were not disappointed, but the contrary, positively surprised.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is unique, very charming and a lot of love for detail. I was impressed by the nice little boutique they have at the entrance and later on found decoration details and articles as well at the Rosewood where we stayed...

The service is great, very pleasant and discrete, you will not even notice them - something I am sometimes missing in Mexico, where service can also be very bold at some places...

For us it's clear, we will return upon our next stay. In the evening, reservation is recommended.

Environment was fine for a quiet dinner....however, the food was nothing special. I'm sorry they seem quite stingy with the provisions. A few nibbles of the antipasto was just that....nibbles..
The cheese provided was laughable...2 pieces of paper thin Parmesan...a few grilled veggies....one pickled white asparagus and a few other "small items".1400 pesos$
The Vietnamese spring roll at 950$pesos is laughable....it can be had at any thai or Asian place for like 2 or 3$. I'd rather you charge more and provide more nourishment and better quality.
