Great for seafood, we had mussels and paella which was great, and the waiters were very friendly. All the food we had was very good.

“Appalling, arrogant service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

My partner and I had two meals in Miguel's during a stay in Santa Ponsa last September. The first meal was very good and the service acceptable. We left a decent tip. On the second visit, we expected a warm welcome and decent food. What we got was the opposite. We came in and ordered the 'special' which claimed to be sirloin steak. When it arrived I was appalled; you wouldn't give a dog something so disgusting. When I called the waiter, he explained in very poor English that he couldn't do anything about it and I would have to speak to the 'head' waiter which I did. He was an extremely rude and arrogant man who did not accept my complaint either in Spanish or in English. He refused to change the meat or indeed offer another 'plate'. I told him clearly that the meat was very poor quality and not what was advertised and he said "what do you expect for 12 euros"!! This is unacceptable and showed he accepted the food served was poor but didn't care. He was the very bad side of Spanish customer service i.e. non-existent.

I wanted to cause a scene but decided against it. Yes, the waiters may look smart in their swanky waistcoats and yes, the food on our first visit was decent (but not great) but part of the eating out experience is the friendliness and professionalism of the waiting staff and Miguel's was the worse example of sloppy and extremely impolite service. What a pity! We would never return and wouldn't recommend it to others unless the quality of table service is unimportant to them and they don't mind being served up appalling quality of food just because it's a 'special'.
