Churros were very hard and probably had been there all day. We were the only people in the place. Then I took my daughter to the restroom and as soon as I turned on the light, lots of cockroaches started running everywhere! Very disgusting!! Paid and left fast!

Holy cow we have lived in San Miguel for two months now and this easily was the best brunch we have had. My wife got a cappuccino and I got one of their many juices to start. Both were great. Then came fresh toast and homemade marmalade followed by our omelettes. The omelette were fantastic but it was the guacamole... More

I stopped by here because I was too tired to go cook. The service was excellent. All of the staff were professional and polite. I ordered the Chicken Enchiladas with green sauce. They were great and priced under 7$. I will return. Gracias!

As other reviews that mention, the hot chocolate here is definitely a highlight. I had the crepes, which were pleasant but nothing to write home about. My husband had a soup that had fried chicken skin in it. He said it was a bit peculiar but tasted pretty good. The meal was pretty pleasant and the staff was helpful. However... More

Fresh authentic food in this small restaurant. No English on the menu so bring your translator with you to order. With that said- no worries. Do not be thinking this is an Irish pub by its name. Far from it. This dinning establishment is family owned and operated by locals. My sister and I popped in for a late lunch.... More

Interior of the restaurant is beautiful. My sister and I happened in one day for a late lunch and we were sold on the great menu and wonderful presentation of the dishes served. Great owner, who came by our table to speak with us. A wonderful dinning experience.We returned the next day with friends for another meal.

Thoroughly enjoyed Donovan where we had a good comida one afternoon and very good churros. Service was good, the kitchen was also good. The surroundings are pleasant and not too noisy. In effect, Donovan's is a quiet oasis off a busy street (Hidalgo).

Loved the food for lunch. We came back here twice during our stay. Everything from the enchiladas to the tostadas was delicious. Plus, we found the service and views lovely.

We stopped in for lunch today because the place had an intreguing look from the street. We both had enchiladas verdes and were not disappointed. They were very flavorful, a good serving size and delivered with a smile. During our next three weeks here, we will go back to try other selections.
