Nice location, mediocre food, there are

Nice location, mediocre food, there are 1000's of much better restaurants, this is not texmex and NOT good Mexican food. I am NEVER going back.

Fonda San Miguel

Lush decor, attentive service & interior Mexican cuisine are worth the hefty price tag on Fonda's menu. Brunch here is a don't-miss.

Inviting atmosphere, Forgettable food

While the atmosphere and decor of Fonda San Miguel are inviting, the real reason for dining at a restaurant, the food, was unimpressive, especially for one of a higher price point. It was fine and nicely arranged, though I enjoyed it no more than a restaurant for half the cost. Also, avoid ordering a mojito, as it was basically a cup of lime juice for $9 (four lime wedges in the glass) with little mint or sweetener.

Upon entering, the courtyard area is lovely and colorful and the d
...view moreining room offers a pleasant ambiance, though the tables are a bit too close together as I had no room to adjust my chair. Furthermore, the citysearch provided dress code is accurate as myself and my company were in nice attire, as were most others, though jeans were worn by some and I noticed several tables with kids, though they were well enough behaved.

The environment was welcoming and nice, though the food was forgettable. A nice place to just grab a drink and sit in the courtyard, though for dinner, look elsewhere.

Pros- Atmosphere, Decor, Service
Cons- Price, Average Food

Good food, but expensive. I think you can get better value for your $$$ at other places in town. If the food was cheaper, I'd give it a higher rating. Good food. High price menu (for me at least).

Best Mexican Food in Austin

A must try authentic Mexican restaurant located in a neighborhood, so it can be a little hard to find. Call ahead for a reservation because this place is always packed, but well worth the wait. An Austin treasure!

beautiful ""interior mexican"" restaurant

Theres so many great things about this restaurant I wish my wallet could handle it. I definitely recommend as a large group or a date to impress. Have never been let down with the food but I also never order the basic things like favorite dish is the cochinita pibil. Took my mom here for brunch last year's mother's day.. although it is also expensive it is very extravagant, plentiful, and beautiful. It was a very special mom date thats for sure.

Dinner experience

We recently went here for a birthday celebration. I had heard it was pricey, but it was really too expensive for what you get. I don't like to have to ask what the price is for a particular dish and there you have to ask about the entire fish section. The food was good as far as I was concerned, but everyone else said it was just ""OK"". Some had the fajitas and said they were no better than any other Mexican restaurant, but double the price. We had margaritas and I was amazed tha...view moret they would serve them in wine glasses!!! Get real. There were a few sips for $9 and by the way, ""happy hour prices"" are ONLY at the bar. I don't think we will go back any time soon, sorry to say. I had hoped for a much better experience.view less

Authentic Mexican Food

Excellent authentic Mexican (not Tex-Mex) food. Prompt curteous service and wonderful ambience. Food is on the expensive side ($18 Cheese Enchiladas) but the quality is there. Many daily specials, green choriso made in house. A dining experience.
