We went for lunch. My husband had the buffet, which was regular, and I asked for a minestrone. My soup was too thin and tasteless. Average service. Place is very cool.

you can tell by the name of the review we sat on the balcony on a tiny bistro set and LOVED IT. El Midi is a neat little place upstairs from another restaurant. The Beef Wellington was perfect. My husband had the Seafood Pasta and was very pleased. The bouillabaisse was incredible. Service was great!

As you walk into the building, there's a restaurant on the ground floor but that's not el Midi. It is located on the 1st floor. The ground floor restaurant looks very nice too so I will definitely try later. Only the salad bar was available when I went, no a la carte menu. I looked at the salad bar and... More

We were drawn to the restaurant by the promise of afternoon music from a son jarocho quartet. The drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, were fantastic. I had a vodka drink with ginger and grapefruit juice that made me pine for another. My friend had a lemon ginger drink that was equally good. The food was OK...not great but very adequate. They...

Located on the second floor of a pretty bulding that hosts another restaurant and a cafe on the main floor and and art gallery upstairs. Very nice "ambience" and varied menu with French and Northern African dishes along with some Mexican inspired dishes. The salad with sautee shrimps was very good but I would have avoided covering the shrimps with... More

El Midi is located on the 2nd floor. The ambience once you enter is that of a cute Parisian cafe. There is a small balcony with tables for 2 outside. (On the day we visited for dinner a guy was staining the wood with varnish that smelled terrible so we chose to sit inside!) The service was very good, and... More

Fantastic jazz quartet on a holiday afternoon. What a terrific surprise! And the food was good as the music. My husband and I went two times in a three day stay in Guanajuato. Absolutely the best find in the entire town.

Have eaten two meals here and both were very good. Setting is very peaceful and inviting, service great. My husband, a real breakfast lover, said this was the best omelet he has ever eaten. The Bloody Mary and Tequila Sunrise just OK.

We visited on a quiet weeknight on the recommindation of our hotel owner and TA posters. Our mojito cocktails were very good, as was the mediterranean salad with shrimp and the gourmet salad with warm crostini topped with goat cheese. However, the minestrone soup my husband was served was so salty it was inedible. My boulliabase was also very salty,... More

My family and I visited this restaurant and we loved the food. The restaurant offers French food with an adequate wine selection. The view from the balcony is charming. Sometimes it is necessary to ask to the staff some details about the dishes. Everything we tried was delicious. The beef with bread crust was great. This restaurant is good for... More
