“A true San Miguel dining delight”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Sea bass delicately spiced. The food here never fails to delight but its the warm local atmosphere that adds to the evening. Family-run, the attention of the staff is most appreciated. A happy place to dine with friends.

“Wow five-star service!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We were charmed by the warm interior of this sparkling clean restaurant and have never had finer, more sincere service anywhere in the world. Our only disappointment was with the saltiness of the food; it overpowered the other wonderful flavors. If we ever have the good fortune to return to San Miguel we would definitely revisit this lovely establishment and just say, "Please hold the salt."

“Great dining experience-don't miss it!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Get out of the center (touristy) of San Miguel and experience an evening of great food and meet an amazing owner and his family run business. (Ask Felix about the history of their business as well)

We were a group of 8 and were all delighted with our choice of restaurant for our last evening in SMA where choices are plentiful. It was a very memorable evening topped off with Felix preparing a magical mexican coffee table-side for us.

From the free taster to the german chocolate cake- the food was wonderful. The interior was more upscale then I had imagined after reading several reviews here and the range of food options were more upscale as well. If you are craving fish- try the snapper. All the high end specials are offered to you visually on a platter allowing you to see cuts of meat and whole fish before being filleted, nice touch. The taco sampler dinner was wonderful as was the steak and enchilada combination (arranchera). The meat was amazingly tender. Soups were first rate as were the salads.

Service was first class. From the crisp white jackets with monogrammed names and the amount of waiters catering the table it had the charm and elegance of a very high end eatery. Our head waiter for the evening was Felix's son- a true gentleman who takes after his father!

Eating here is an event- we stayed 2.5 hours and were never rushed- to the contrary, Felix announced at the start, this is your home tonight-stay as long as you like! (There was one other table that stayed longer).

From the centro SMA you should take a taxi as it is in a distant residential area. One of our cabbies had a hard time finding it without asking for directions. It is a surprising jewel in this business free community that adds to the feeling that you have made a great discovery that so many other SMA visitors will miss! What a great evening all the way around.

(Call ahead for hours/reservation -open on weekends as the family cooks for a high school during the weekdays!)

We will never miss out eating here on our return visits- to re-visit wonderful people and great cooking! Our only regret is not discovering this gem on our previous trips to SMA.

“Extremely Delicious Food”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

World's best enchiladas. Varied menu, reasonable prices. Gracious service, beautiful environment. Full bar. Best food I've had in San Miguel de Allende. The only negative point is that I am chemically sensitive and found the interior of the restaurant to smell like perfumed cleaning products. (All is very clean!) There are three tables in the courtyard and we were fortunate to get one of those. If Don Felix switches to natural, no-fragrance cleaning products, the restaurant will be absolute perfection.

We visited this restaurant twice on our last visit to SMA. Authentic food in a family restaurant. The place is worth the cab ride!! Wonderful people, warm, inviting, friendly. BEST chiles en nogada EVER!
