I must say that family and friends had talked so much about this place that I expected it to be great. I liked it but I wouldn't say it is in my top San Miguel de Allende. However, if you happen to go there the food was good and the service was very good.

The restaurant is a good place to eat lunch or dinner in san miguel. Both of the times we've been there, we get there starving at 5pm which is in the middle of their lunch and dinner menu, so they give you a simple lunch one.Which is still really good, try the fish tacos !

The three of us arrived around noon for lunch. The courtyard was empty Apparently we were early for lunch, but sat down to eat anyway as we were all hungry. First let me just say the courtyard space is really spectacularly beautiful. Very simple and natural but so lovely with a wonderful fountain babbling in the center. We enjoyed just... More

The Restaurant is a favorite for many locals in San Miguel for good reason. The service is excellent, food preparation excellent and the setting is lovely. A caveat is that great food can found in San MIguel for far less. We paid 1350 pesos for 1 salad, 2 burgers, 2 drinks and 1 dessert. That is about $80 American which... More

Food was OK but pricey. Portions were small. We got there about 6pm for dinner which I guess is to early for normal dining. Some of the appetizers were not cooked yet so not available. Also we didn't get bread that later dinners got because it wasn't ready early. We also had Thanksgiving dinner there later in the week. It... More

We ate here on "burger night"- Thursday. There burgers were very good, and our friend had a large steak which he said was very good. We had a few different appies, most were 'OK' There is both a smoking and non smoking area. The smoking section has a DJ and is where the lovely bar is, but not a lot... More

This restaurant is one of the top for service and quality of food in town. One complaint. I have lived in San Miguel for 6 months. They have never changed their menu. Is the chef AOL or just lost interest in innovation? I would go more often if there was more change in the sections.

Thank Rocco862

THE RESTAURANT, housed in one of San Miguel’s most elegantly colonial settings at Sollano 16, opened in February 2008 featuring Chef Donnie Masterton’s world class cuisine. It is located just steps away from the main square of San Miguel de Allende, the prettiest and most restored/written-about Colonial city in all of Mexico. Offering a full bar, it serves lunch and dinner five days a week in a sun-dappled eighteen century Moroccan courtyard, as well as in their elegant dining salon.Serving global comfort good, THE RESTAURANT’s menu reflects the changing seasons with a focus on the simplicity of fine ingredients. The Chef collaborates with local organic growers, dairy farmers and ranchers to procure the freshest, highest quality and responsibly raised product available. Catering to today’s more experienced, adventurous and health conscious diners, The Restaurant will emphasize quality in food and customer service…as well as a more involved relationship with respect to our food and the land it comes from.
