“Very good as usual”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

I know the construction is causing some headaches for this place, but we have been a few times and it has been very good. The only reason it did not get five stars is due to the "best margaritas". In my opinion, they are definitely not the best. Way too salty. We actually stick to the beers.
The food is great. The guacamole is nice and fresh and the tacos were great. We will always go back....construction or not.

“Extremely Disappointing This Year!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We have been visiting Bucerias for 6 years consecutively and always go to Miguel's. Their food and drinks are normally the best and we are happy. This year, Miguel spoke to us many times throughout our vacation and complained about the construction affecting his business. On one night in particular, we were convinced by him to come in (there were no other customers) to have the "Best Margarita in Town!" We were reluctant because it was late, but he begged us. We got our drinks quickly and took a BIG sip. They were disgusting!! They were loaded with lime and salt and they tasted horrible. In the past we have enjoyed them. We tried to choke them down so we could leave. No quality check was done, so we flagged the server down for the bill. He asked how we liked them and we told him the truth. We did not like them. He took our money and then Miguel came over and asked how we liked them. Again, we told the truth. He called the server over and told him to ask us what we thought. Again, the same. We said we didn't think we should have to pay for them. Miguel insisted that we pay for them and we could come back in 2 days (after the Superbowl) to get 2 free Margaritas made properly. We agreed. We saw him the next day and said we would see him tomorrow for our free drinks. He smiled and said "ok". We returned the next day and asked Miguel for our free drinks and he said"no". Good thing there is an OXXO right next door to get pepto bismol for the heartburn! We left and will never return.

We have been coming here for 15 years and have always had the best customer service food and drinks! We have become good friends with Miguel and his family! Jairo is an amazing server and Captain Morgan"Carlos" an excellent bartender! Feels like home!!!!

“Great service, drinks and good food.”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I was with a group of seven people that travelled to the PVR area in January 2014. Each time we go, we are sure to visit Miguel's on a couple of different occasions. This year it was different. The margaritas were still great, the service attentive and welcoming, the food was pretty good but unfortunately there is some pretty loud construction going on directly out front of the restaurant. It is mainly concrete work so there were loud drills and saws creating all sorts of noise and dust that was distracting and probably a bit detrimental to the business of the restaurant. Miguel was quick to apologize for the noise and dust, though we knew it was out of his power and were happy to stay as we always enjoy our visits to his restaurant.
To start with we had chips, salsa and the worlds best guacamole. for lunch, two of us had the Mexican combo platter. Filled with many of our favourites including stuffed pepper, quesadilla etc. it was good but slightly over cooked. My son had the grilled whole red snapper and loved it. The cocoa nut shrimp was another favourite of everyone. Mango and cucumber margaritas were masterfully mixed with fresh fruit.

I recommend going to Miguel's. We will definitely be back. We would have went back on this trip again if not for the noise and dust from the construction. Miguel does think it should be over soon though.

“Still an excellent meal. Too bad about construction.”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Every time I've been to Bucerias, it's a must to dine at Miguel Angel's. The food didn't disappoint, again. But I feel for them with construction outside the restaurant. A new town square is being built.
