Loved Miguel's! Loved the food, atmosphere, and service! We enjoyed the appetizers so much we skipped straight to dessert. We had the ceviche (some of the best we've had) and wait for it...fried corn on the cob. Delicious. There was so much, we literally could not eat a main course and went straight for dessert. Great place!

I can just go here and be happy with the chips, salsa and queso dip. They have a nice covered patio and good service. I try to eat here when I am staying in Coronado. Average food but one of the best places in Coronado.

I came to Coronado during my business trip through San Diego. I wanted to see the island and the Hotel Del Coronado. I needed to eat lunch and I (Correctly) reasoned the restaurants in the Coronado would be $$$$. I found Miguel's across the street and what a wonderful find. Even the chips and salsa were awesome, obviously home made.... More

Service was friendly and helpful. Food was ok. Cheese dip was cold. Snapper was fishy and over cooked (rubbery). Unfortunately the drink wasnt any better; too much syrup.

Really good Mexican food, full of flavour. The service was great even if they were really busy. I got the beef tacos and my husband got the two tacos, chicken and pork. Their margaritas were also excellent. No space for dessert unfortunately!

The food was not bad. The cheese dip they bring you to go with the chips is very good. I enjoyed that. It is hard to mess up fajitas and they were good. Can't speak to the authenticity of any of the Mexican dishes. Our son wanted to show us Coronado and he and his friends enjoy this place. The... More

My daughter and I ate here December 31st for lunch. Our server was Clayton and he was great; friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. I had a shrimp salad and my daughter fajitas. My wife and I also ate here in January with the same great experience. Anytime I visit Coronado Miguel's Cocina will be on my to do list!

Craving Mexican, the family and I chose Miguel's while visiting Coronado. The restaurant has an interesting layout with multiple seating areas dispersed throughout the hotel. Wait time was minimal and they text you when your table is ready. There isn't an area to sit while waiting, so the text notification allowed us to wait in the car until notification. My... More

The Good: Visited on a Saturday in July for dinner. There was a very long wait, but ample seating to wait, and self serve chips and salsa available to much on while we waited. They also have a bar at the hostess stand for drinks while you wait. The Bad: We waited for about 55 minutes, then we brought past... More
