The high, dark-wood ceiling and the old windows and doors would suggest that this is an older restaurant, although the new wooden bar and contemporary light fixtures don’t quite fit in with the original architecture. Despite this, the food, the drinks, and the location turned us into repeat customers.
Lunch starts at 2pm, and it’s a great time of day to visit. We had to wait awhile for a table (it’s a small place), but once you’re seated, service is usually pretty fast.
Whilst we were there, it was especially busy with Mexicans and foreign tourists in town for Semana Santa, but it’s fun to look past the waiters dashing around you at the outside world, which moves in comparative slow motion.
Every so often, people will wander in selling dolls, beads, and other souvenirs. One old guy stopped to play a serenade at the door on his guitar, so be prepared to contribute to the passing entertainers and vendors.
The menu offers many different options and is also translated into English. They also have an interesting dessert menu and full bar. We can recommend the lentil soup (sopa de lentija) at 37ps and the best chicken enchiladas my husband has tasted (enchiladas verdes rellenes de pollo) at 79ps. Seafood tends to be a bit more expensive, but it is also very tasty (camarones al mojo de ajo at 119ps), and a house salad (ensalada de la casa) is 12ps. This place also does one of the best margaritas in town (45ps). I stuck to lemonade (15ps), but they use freshly squeezed lemons and limes, which makes them a lot better than the average.

I didn't go for lunch or dinner here, but the next time I go to San Miguel I will definitely visit Don Tomas because of its overall quality of the restaurant.

The friendly, helpful waiters are happy to let you sample the sauces before ordering to assure nothing too "caliente" for your palate. Their specialty is Arrochera Steak Fajitas and you can order by the single plate ($7.50AU) or by the kilo for a crowd ($ 29US) and be served "family style".
Very large menu with all of the favorites Mexican dishes. Prices range ($5- $30US) and are a little higher than most of the small restaurants in the area. I recommend eating here at least once during your stay in the city if only to enjoy the scenes of daily happening in the jardin just across the street.
