The food here is very consistent and reasonably priced. The restaurant is large enough to have large groups. They also have a special hamburger night during the week that is popular.

Certainly this is a sophisticated choice. The wait staff are professional, attentive but not hovering, the food and drinks delicious and the environment very pleasant. They happened to have the mothers day menu on when we were there - although we had the a-la carte...More

Our small fox terrier "Ika" will be with us, as always. We are staying at the Rosewood where Ika is most welcome. Can Ika join the four of us during our meal at The Restaurant?

Response from Theresa J | Reviewed this property |
Definitely not.
Why is there a 15 or 16% tax (I forgot exactly) on the bill? It is not tip because there is a separate line to fill in the tip. I didn't think about it until I dine at other restaurants and none of them charges tax.

Response from rmason7338 | Reviewed this property |
Most restaurants include this tax in their prices...so you don't see it. It's up to them to pay it. The Restaurant puts this price on top of their prices, so you see this value added tax (IVA).

THE RESTAURANT, housed in one of San Miguel’s most elegantly colonial settings at Sollano 16, opened in February 2008 featuring Chef Donnie Masterton’s world class cuisine. It is located just steps away from the main square of San Miguel de Allende, the prettiest and most restored/written-about Colonial city in all of Mexico. Offering a full bar, it serves lunch and dinner five days a week in a sun-dappled eighteen century Moroccan courtyard, as well as in their elegant dining salon.Serving global comfort good, THE RESTAURANT’s menu reflects the changing seasons with a focus on the simplicity of fine ingredients. The Chef collaborates with local organic growers, dairy farmers and ranchers to procure the freshest, highest quality and responsibly raised product available. Catering to today’s more experienced, adventurous and health conscious diners, The Restaurant will emphasize quality in food and customer service…as well as a more involved relationship with respect to our food and the land it comes from.
