The sign outside says they're looking for a cook. Maybe this is why it was empty on a Saturday night? There were only two of us there at 8pm! Service was good [!] but the food was really only mediocre. I have been here and enjoyed it in the past.

We spent New Year's Eve at this restaurant, and they made, specially for me, since it was not on the regular menu, a totally vegan Ratatouille, which I sincerely recommend. Nice place to spend New Year's Eve, and it is two or three blocks from downtown.

Visiting with friends last week. First let me say,there was a LARGE party ahead of us...a room full of about 40 people. Im not sure they were ready for our party of 12 to walk in, it is the off season. Nonetheless, we were seated and delighted half an hour later when the owners brother came in with his guitar...

This is one of those hit or miss places. When it's good it's very good but then you return the next time to a sub-par meal. Not worth the trouble and expense with so many other dining options in San Miguel.

Stumbled upon this place and so glad we did. Delicious and great variety of French and Mexican dishes. Oh my goodness, don't miss out on their French onion soup..the best we've ever tasted (and we've tasted a lot all over the world!) Great service, atmosphere, live music..just right..not too loud..just wonderful!

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at this restaurant. A guitarist serenaded us, the atmosphere was just right, service was great. The owner came out and chatted with us and recommended several dishes to us. I had the Filet Mignon in Mole sauce, my wife had a great chicken dish. Margaritas were on special for 25 pesos, made with fresh... More

Tonight was our second dinner at Mexifran and we were even more pleased than the first time. The atmosphere is romantic and lovely, the Cuban guitarist absolutely fabulous, the 25 peso margaritas a treat, and the food great. We had pasta with salmon in cream sauce, ratatouille and chile relleno - all delicious and all at a great price. Also... More

Had friends visiting from out of town and took them there for Friday night dinner. The live music, the atmosphere, the service and the filet mignons were outstanding and all at a very reasonable price. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience. I would not hesitate to go back.

I have been to Mexifran multiple times for dinner. It is in a location on Zacateros just short of Pila Seca, that used to house an Argentinian restaurant. The guacamole is treated carefully. It is buttery but not whipped to a cream. The soups offer a selection of French and Mexican styles: bean, onion, mushroom and tortilla. There is a... More
