Salsa, queso, and chips are all free. Enchiladas and taco combo was good. Taco shell was homemade as well as chips and tortilla shells. Pollo asado was fair. Chicken was very tough, but came with a tremendous amount of food including fresh pico, tortilla shells- choice of corn or flour, avocado, rice, beans, onions, and fresh cilantro. Pricing was fair...

Latin/Mexican restaurant. I had the 3 taco sampler and others had an enchilada plate and one person had a steak. All were excellent and we went away stuffed. I would have given a 5+ based on the food but a bit moderate on pricing for Mexican but probably expected seeing as how this is Coronado and they are basically on... More

My spouse and I ate here one night, and it was enjoyable, and we would have gone again, but the meals are so filling that we never had a night we wanted so much food. However, they had the ahi Tuna Ceviche appetizer which we shared but would have been perfect for just one, and it was a bit pricey,... More

Just asked around some of the locals for a good Mexican resturant, and we ended up here. And I am glad that we did. The place was full, so what does that tell you? they seated us quickly, the waiter provided some drink suggestions, which were very good. He also provided a few lunch suggestions, which we accepted, and they... More

Food was good, had the 3 taco sampler. Wait staff was excellent. I was there for a group dinner and Im sure we tried their patience. Would go back next time I'm in Coronado.

The queso and chips are good and so is the bacon wrapped shrimp . Food is tasty. The reason for a three is the margarita pitcher for $31 that basically had no tequila. We had two margaritas at the tequila bar at Marriott marquis and was cheaper and had the kick you pay for. Also lost a point for not... More

The food was good, and the waiter very conscious of our needs. The prices were fair and the beer was varied. We enjoyed the mild weather that allowed the doors to be open to the street. We would eat here again.

This was a treat! Miguel's is very busy so you may have to wait. We are in the patio with full service dining included warmth and ambiance. The food is good Tex-Mex style. There are lots of different offerings. We were a group of 5. There were large groups which they accommodated well. Tip- you can enter through the hotel... More

Miguel's has the best Mexican food in the area. Their swordfish tacos are absolutely fabulous. The chips, salsa and queso is wonderful. We have eaten there a few times while on vacation and have tried several different entrees and everything has been very good. Their waiting staff is very friendly.

I had the fish tacos and they were delicious. Nice sized portion. The margarita with 2 shots of tequila, lime and agave and salt was amazing. Great service. The Mexican chocolate pot de creme was a perfect finish.
