el Midi is the best place to have dinner in Guanajuato, by far. This casually elegant little place serves beautifully prepared french cuisine for all tastes. Always great service, often there is live music, it's perfect for a group of friends, a family get together or a romantic date. I have eaten there many times and I'm always pleased by... More

visited several times and loved the food offerings,drinks etc. Service generally good although slow at times. Often had live music which is a bonus esp the ariet of talented musicians. Now we are back in Canada we miss El Midi--a lot !!!!!

My husband and I had one of our most memorable meals ever here at Cafe Midi a year ago...one of those magical evenings when every thing was perfect...so we were wondering how our return visit would be. Sometimes it is hard to duplicate...and we had told the friend we are traveling with this year how wonderful it had been. Perhaps... More

Walked past el midi on a hot day and discovered a great place with balconies offering sun and a bit of a view. The service was amazing and food just as good. The waiter had good English which helped us too and even gave us some Spanish pointers! Certainly worth a visit, whether for a couple of drinks in the... More

Been there a few times and always happy with the atmosphere and the food. Either for a simple "tabla de quesos con charcuteria" or a fine dinner, it's working every time! Definitely one of the best place to eat in Guanajuato!

A delightful modern environment mixed with rustic furniture. This upstairs restaurant has floor to ceiling doors looking out onto the street. I had a Mediterranean salad with shrimp, pecans, & thinly sliced peppers in a delicious vinegar eye. The presentation was lovely. My friend had a perfectly prepared omelette with a beautiful side salad. Hers was accompanied with great garlic... More

Great atmosphere here in this modern, cosy bistro. Balcony to sit outside is quite small. Pity that our two pasta dishes were not at par with the relatively high prices...

The ambience: An authentic French bistro, well-appointed with a charming owner from Montpellier. The place spells romance. The cuisine: Superb. Her version of bouillabaisse with fresh mussels and shrimp in a spicy sauce is to swoon over. The accompanying wine was perfect. The tarte tartin had a crisp crust and was not overly-laden with sugar and butter. The verdict: One... More

We visited El Midi Bistro three times during our stay in Guanajuato and I surely plan to go there again. The drinks? Superb. I had a piña colada, made with Flor de Caña, that was the best ever to pass my lips and I know whereof I speak since piñas are my favorite cocktail. The hors d'oeuvres and entrées are... More
