My husband and I are at Bugambilia in 1998 and enjoyed the experience. At that time the ambience was very nice. Now, in January 2017, I am here with my son and daughter-in-law, and wanted to re-visit such a pleasant memory. I was very disappointed. The location is unimpressive, and the ambience is very ordinary. The food was good -... More

We went in quite unsuspecting to this lovely restaurant and we were utterly blown away by the food, best ever in Mexico that we have experienced. The service was great and the waiters do speak English but as is natural prefer to communicate with you in Spanish, so give it a try!! I went all out to try something familiar... More

We had breakfast here, as our CasaLuna Boutique Hotel's restaurant was closed for renovations. It took us well over an hour to get served. Every single element of our very simple breakfast order was screwed up. Finally, after several requests, we were served cold eggs, which we returned to the kitchen and then left. Not worth spending all day with... More

San Miguel has many very good restaurants. This is not one of them. Prices were very reasonable but the food was just OK in our opinion. Don't waste your time on this one.

We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant. I tried the award winning chile relleno with tamal. It was delicious! Service was great.

Visited this restaurant las week during the Festival Cervantino is neighboring Guanajuato. This restaurant used to be in a location full of buganviillias, hence the name, but it has been moved to a location that doesn't correspond at all to the ambiance and quality of the old restaurant. Yet, they're taking advantage of its old fame to attract a clientele.... More

This is my 6th visit to SMA in 11 years and I have eaten at Bugambilla each time. It has recently been relocated to Mesones, and has lost its beautiful and charming atmosphere. The walls and decor felt junky and dirty. The menus were faded and grimy. The service was extremely slow. As always, I ordered the Chiles en Nogada,... More

We were the only ones in the restaurant and they took forever. The service was terrible. Food was flavorless. Go somewhere else.
