“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The restuarant was outside of San Miguel--defnitely off the beaten path--but in a relaxing beautiful setting.

The food was excellent. We'd go back again.

“A restful, delightful, respite - and the food is tasty too!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

An afternoon comida at Nirvana is like a mini-vacation and retreat. The food is creatively presented and flavorful. It is a place to linger and one of favorites.

“Gorgeous restaurant food disappointing”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

What an amazing garden setting where it is hard to choose as the indoor space is just as lovely. Excellent service, mighty fine Margaritas, and very disappointing food. Will go back just to revisit the peacocks and wander around this magical property.

“Afternoon lunch on the lawn”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

This was a real treat, after a dusty motorcycle ride, to pull into this beautiful oasis, only a short distance from San Miguel. The natural beauty of the place, the ivy growing over iron railings, the green lawn, the old cacti gardens, tables with umbrellas, looking out over the countryside. I could not have been more lovely. And the food was delicious! The arugula salad is perfect, and the chocolate tantine, a chocolate lover 's dream! We met the owner, Juan Carlos, who graciously invited us to walk around the grounds. The service was great. It was a beautiful afternoon and we will return. A very romantic place, especially if you like old Mexico ambiance and graciousness.

“Amazing luncheon....”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had a group luncheon at this location and everything was flawless from the quality and flavor of the food and the amazing hibiscus margaritas, the Chef-Patron took care of us at all times make sure all our guest had a great time. The place is lovely, we were seating in the little terrace and everyone was amazed by the lovely gardens. We did a quick walk to see the spa and the rooms and I definitively want to come back and stay there.
