Unless you request and get a table in the special upside down saint section, it's a long trek away from the city center. There are plenty of places in the the city center which offer similar food choices.

Overall this is a great restaurant to have dinner or shop mexican crafts or pray to Saint Antony to get you a husband, because you will see many Saint Antony Figures headlong. Food is very tasty, you cannot pass avocado water, Tamarindo chicken breast and Tarasca soup, typical region dish.

5 people and everyone said their food was amazing. For my part I had a great dish Medallones del Patron, meat with blue corn tortillas. The service was also nice.

This very authentic restaurant is one of my must go sites each time I visit Morelia. The mole chicken is great and the salmon as well.

Located in the newer, modern part of Morelia, the San Miguelito is a pretty and unique spot. The food is delicous. Try the mole with chicken breast or the arrachera, with tortilla soup first. Attentive service, too, and well priced.

The food and service is excellent. They have parking valet. The place is full of images, icons, statues, photos of San Antonio, the saint of lovers.

San Miguelito is a must when visiting Morelia. It has an exquisite author's Mexican cuisine mixed with the beautiful design and folkloric ambience.

This restaurant has very attentive waiters. Also has excellent decor and cooking. My husband enjoyed his Arranchera steak very much. I had Pechuga se Pinta Solar, and liked it, too.
