We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Nirvana in November, 2015. The setting was beautiful as well as peaceful. The food was excellent! A great variety and the presentation absolutely perfect! We plan on taking a group there for lunch next Fall! The group needs to experience this great place!

Great little boutique hotel and restaurant 25 minutes outside of SMA. Outside area for lunch is beatiful and food was good. Very quiet and peaceful place, tried to stay overnight but was full. Price were fair and would go back next time.

I've been in San Miguel for a month and just heard about this place today. What a great way to escape the congestion an noise of San Miguel. Beautiful views, clean air, excellent service, great food, gorgeous grounds. If I ever come back, I'll book a few days here at the beginning or end of my time in San Miguel.... More

Went for a friend's birthday lunch, and we had lots of delicious appetizers, and actually got too full to order a total lunch. The grounds, seating, everything is stunning. Did not stay at the hotel, but went to walk around, look at the rooms and have a lovely lunch.

The food is good but not exceptional, however, the location is outstanding. It is a wonderful place to have a leisurely lunch either on the rear porch or in the garden. The menu is quite extensive with (what I think are) atypical Mexican dishes. There is sushi (okay), grilled salmon (very good), salmon in mango chutney (excellent) and Thai Soup... More

We had a lovely dinner. Since some of the reviews mention poor service, I wish I could remember our waiter's name because he was wonderful - very patient and helpful. The food was the best of all the places we ate in San Miguel. He said he played guitar and sang in San Miguel on the weekends. The entire place... More

This peaceful place can be a challenge to find. We had a rental car so we just asked a taxi to lead us there. No problem. But once we arrived we never wanted to leave! The rooms are spacious with lots of natural light. The view from the balcony was of trees and a small secluded valley. We woke up... More
