We had breakfast here, as our CasaLuna Boutique Hotel's restaurant was closed for renovations. It took us well over an hour to get served. Every single element of our very simple breakfast order was screwed up. Finally, after several requests, we were served cold eggs, which we returned to the kitchen and then left. Not worth spending all day with... More

San Miguel has many very good restaurants. This is not one of them. Prices were very reasonable but the food was just OK in our opinion. Don't waste your time on this one.

We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant. I tried the award winning chile relleno with tamal. It was delicious! Service was great.

Visited this restaurant las week during the Festival Cervantino is neighboring Guanajuato. This restaurant used to be in a location full of buganviillias, hence the name, but it has been moved to a location that doesn't correspond at all to the ambiance and quality of the old restaurant. Yet, they're taking advantage of its old fame to attract a clientele.... More

This is my 6th visit to SMA in 11 years and I have eaten at Bugambilla each time. It has recently been relocated to Mesones, and has lost its beautiful and charming atmosphere. The walls and decor felt junky and dirty. The menus were faded and grimy. The service was extremely slow. As always, I ordered the Chiles en Nogada,... More

We were the only ones in the restaurant and they took forever. The service was terrible. Food was flavorless. Go somewhere else.

The Bugambilia in the 80´s was a pretty good place and given the status it had back in the days, it´s sad to see it so average. Below average. Mu husband and I tried it just to see what had changed and it was so disappointing. Aside from a poor ambiance the food was just noting to write home about.... More

We came to this restaurant after the high energy activity of a Semana Santa procession, looking for some calm as well as a good dinner reasonably priced. We got it all. I love the feeling in this place, especially the fountain gurgling in the middle of the restaurant. My husband enjoyed his third run at his favourite, chiles en nogada,... More
