Service was good. Ambience was good. Two glasses of house wine were good. The bill was reasonable. The food just didn't turn me on. Ordered two appetizers and the couscous. I'm not Mr French cuisine, so that might explain it. Got a little too adventurous...More

Recommended for couples. Really good food and price/quality. I ordered a salmon with mustard and it was great. They have French wine from small vineyards-not commercial and it was awesome. So far, one of the best places we have tried at Guanajuato.

el Midi is the best place to have dinner in Guanajuato, by far. This casually elegant little place serves beautifully prepared french cuisine for all tastes. Always great service, often there is live music, it's perfect for a group of friends, a family get together...More

visited several times and loved the food offerings,drinks etc. Service generally good although slow at times. Often had live music which is a bonus esp the ariet of talented musicians. Now we are back in Canada we miss El Midi--a lot !!!!!
