Treat yourself to an experience and go to Fonda San Miguel! Not the normal Austin Tex-Mex, but fine interior Mexican food with a can't miss menu. The Mexican Martini's are the best in town!

I love the decoration of the building. The food isn't worth the price or the wait. If you come in without a reservation be prepared to wait for over a hour. I found the food ok but not worth the hour and half wait. Then they really wanted us out of the place once we were done with the food.... More

This is a high end Mexican restaurant with a great ambience. If you don't mind paying $250 for five(food and non alcohol drinks) you are good to go. We actually had a great time here with my daughter's college friends. Enjoyed the appetizer, main course and we shared dessert. The waiter was very very friendly and nice. Originally, we were...

We like to pick places we can't get back in Houston. This place lived up to the expectations. Not that the food is over the top, it is that everything is on point. You won't mind paying a little more for having it all in unison. The known for dishes were fabulous suggestions. We shared an appetizer, main course, and... More

The restaurant is very crowded, noisy and busy so make sure you call for a reservation. The decor is very impressive with handcrafted dragon figures and interesting paintings and photographs in the several rooms. Tables are close together. The buffet offerings are many and varied from time to time. We had a choice of chicken mole, shrimp in green sauce,... More

The mole enchiladas are excellent. Also, meals come with fresh tortillas which are a big plus. The only negative is that they get busy so you may have to wait, but that comes with serving good food.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Fonda San Miguel. Since this was our first visit there, our server provided some excellent suggestions and even a taste of mole just so that we could experience it. My husband had a fantastic Mixiote made with lamb shank and I enjoyed my duck enchiladas with a spinach/poblano sauce. The atmosphere in the restaurant... More

Exceptional from start to finish! It is a beautiful restaurant in the style of a high end restaurant in Mexico. The menu is unique and they offer specials as well. The rellenos dishes were absolutely delicious. The prices are commensurate with the food quality & level of service. We really enjoyed our experience!
