Great authentic atmosphere, restaurant is located within a cool hotel with a hip vibe. Good food, try the meatball soup. Enchiladas with Verde sauce and the Chicken Fajitas were delicious. Starters were Chips and Salsa and a unusual tasty cheese dip. Check out the cool art in the hotel lobby area.

We enjoy Miguel's. Its not ground breaking but is reliable and the service is excellent. It's within walking distance from the Del Coronado Hotel. Try the ahi tuna tacos. They are much better than the sword fish tacos in our opinion.

Tucked away in a quaint narrow passage is this great Mexican restaurant. Saw the ratings and set out to find it. Boy am I glad we did! Outstanding food and fare. The chips and salsa (which includes queso) is great. Excellent customer service!

Miguel's is an extremely popular Coronado restaurant which I feel is a bit overrated. There are often long waits and while the atmosphere is fun and casual the food is only mediocre. You're better off heading down the road to a much better place on Orange Ave.

A large party visit to Miguel's that was handled very well! The service by Mike was excellent, with guests straggling in over 1/2 hour. The menu is comprehensive, with some of the dishes combining unusual tastes into one dish. The Calamari Relleno was outstanding!

Had some time to kill while on vacation in Coronado and stopped into Miguel's and sat at the bar with a friend. They had happy hour from 2-6pm. The margarita my friend had tasted fresh. Not like a soda fountain drink. We found out they hand make their own margarita mixes daily. I had a glass of Hess Cabernet and... More
