Recommended and frequented by the locals. You won't find too many tourists here. Their authentic Mexican dishes include Lionfish (we tried fried) and it was superb. Brush up your Espanol and step away from the tourist traps.

Mark, Sorry, I don't know if the restaurant is dog friendly. But my guess is they might be. As you know, dogs are everywhere in San Miguel! Since you are local, give them a call. (987) 869-8343
