Fodor's Review

La Fonda, in a former convent, is perhaps the Centro's most exceptional eatery. Innovative, high-end Mexican dishes are presented in a soaring courtyard, the middle of which is dominated by a stone fountain and hung with a spectacular array of shining tin stars and folk art from Tlaquepaque and Tonalá. Relish the freshly made tortillas with the molcajete, a steaming stew of chicken, seafood, or beef that comes in a three-legged volcanic stone bowl. Camarones en mole (shrimp in mole) is another good dish. There's piano or saxophone music every evening except Monday. Piano music accompanies a breakfast buffet 8:30–noon on Saturday and Sunday.

La Fonda de San Miguel Review

Service was slow, but polite. While waiting for dinner we explored the second floor. This place has the reputation of being haunted, its history is intriguing and complex, reflecting Mexico's tumultuous past. Food was homestyle and tasty. The roast pork was savory and juicy. Someone ordered chicken and I thought it was a little dry. Better that than undercooked. The beef plates were delicious. Wine list was wanting.

Surprise! A good tourist place.

The Molcajete is worth the trip. The service and everything else is okay.

Outstounding Restaurant Downtown

Very good food, very good drinks and a beautiful colonial setting. Nothing very pretentious, full of history. Just right!
