Dinner here last night was one of the highlights of our stay in San Miguel. We love Gil Gutierrez and his music, and he did not disappoint. He's a guitar virtuoso who surrounds himself with other very talented artists, many of whom are quite young. You sense he enjoys nurturing their musical careers. The food--arrachera, salmon, and chicken rolade--were excellent.... More

I have eaten at Mi Casa three times in the past two months and highly recommend it. The food is excellent, I recommend the arrachera and the shrimp appetiser! The locale is very special with a wonderful view of the Parroquia. The music on Tuesday and especially Wednesday nights are the best in San Miguel. Be sure to reserve in... More

Tucked back in the Instituto Allende is Mi Casa. Excellent food and service at very reasonable prices. It's back courtyard has a photographer's dream view at nighttime of the main Cathedral in San Miguel de Allende. The added plus is the live Jazz on weekends. The owner is also the lead guitarist in a 7 member combo. Modest $8 cover... More

The first class service provided by the staff complimented the excellent quality of food and wine and liquor selection. My wife is Cuban and we requested a Cuban band for this event. Gil... More

In addition to a wonderful meal, we heard the most fantastic music one evening. Can still hear the beat, feel the rhythm of the music and see the thrill of the musicians as a they played off each other. WOW!!!

Lovely Bistro inside Instituto Allende. Party of three of us dined there scoring a last minute reservation on the evening of a concert by an extremely popular local group, Media Luna with Gil Guitterez. The location offers a spectacular evening view of the Parroquia, especially since we were seated outside of the main room. The service and the food were... More

On our last night in San Miguel we managed to finally get to Bistro Mi Casa for some good Spanish guitar music and we were not disappointed. First of all, the building is gorgeous and the dining room a delight. Secondly, we were lucky enough to have Lobo there playing with Gil Gutierrez. He was outstanding! He did several solo... More
