Service was good. Ambience was good. Two glasses of house wine were good. The bill was reasonable. The food just didn't turn me on. Ordered two appetizers and the couscous. I'm not Mr French cuisine, so that might explain it. Got a little too adventurous this time, and it didn't pay off. For me.

Very nice ambiente and the food is very very good, but not really Mexican. The Barkeeper did a great job and is a professional! The prices a little bit higher than normal, but you get high quality food and taste for your money, so it's good!

The atmosphere was elegant, yet comfortable. Our food was fantastic. We had the most wonderful service. This is THE place to eat in Guanajuato. There is also a rooftop patio with an amazing view.

We nearly wound up in the wrong restaurant as the building houses 4 dining options. Look carefully, you'll be rewarded with a cute, casual upscale Bistro experience. We squeezed ourselves onto the balcony and I enjoyed a cold, delicious Savingnon Blanc. Wish I could say we ordered a full meal but we were not that hungry so we said a... More

Great place! We had the cheese platter with tapenade, it was delicious! Then we had some great homemade pasta. The wine selection is good, overall good food, clean and great service!

On our last night of 5 in Guanajuato we wanted a special experience - we were pleased to enjoy a meal at El Bistro Midi. We were a bit confused in terms of what is in Casa Cuatro - the building in which one finds Midi and En Punto. My wife enjoyed her vegetarian coucous served with a separate olla... More

Recommended for couples. Really good food and price/quality. I ordered a salmon with mustard and it was great. They have French wine from small vineyards-not commercial and it was awesome. So far, one of the best places we have tried at Guanajuato.

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
