Sunday Lunch
La Mansion de Montitlan is a very unique restaurant. We are located in a private home and open only on Sunday from 1 pm to 3 pm. The restaurant sits on the side of a mountain with a stunning view of San Miguel de Allende. Our menu changes each week except for the well known and outstanding Southern Fried Chicken. Ms. Paulson is extremely talented and has studied in Culinary schools in Paris and Italy. Our staff is expertly trained and the service is impeccable. When you make reservations on OpenTable add your email address and you will be sent a menu, by email, for the Sunday of your reservations. In a return email you will include the number of reservations, time and entree selections of your choice.

Amazing place. Absolutely recommend this if you are ever there on Sunday. She is selling her place so not sure if she will keep doing this so go soon before you miss out. Everything was so nice. This is a very cost and intimate type dinner/brunch party feeling as it's in the chef's beautiful home. Many of the guest knew each other many or non-Mexican residents of SMA and apparently meet up regularly or at least on special occasions. Service was very good. The food was amazing! Thanks for giving us such a wonder experience.

This is a lovely brunch location. I totally missed reading that it is byob, but they found us a bottle of wine. The food was excellent, as was the service.

Beautiful setting.... felt like we were eating on the deck of someone’s home. Which we were in fact, someone’s beautiful home

I guess it's a nice and different place to have a good meal. They have an amazing service but I have to say that it's quite expensive for what you get (perhaps it wasn't their best day), the food is good and they even offer you to serve you more to eat when you're done. We were four persons and had the fried chicken and the mushroom pasta.

This was a return visit for me and my friends and, La Mansion once again excelled in all areas. The fried chicken was the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. The seasoning was delicious. The dining patio is beautiful overlooking the city. CONNIE was so friendly and accommodating to our last minute “changed plans”. I highly recommend a visit but you do need to make reservations.

This is a lovely weekly dinner, only on Sunday afternoons, hosted by the owner of a beautiful, stately home with a great view of the city below. The crowd is mostly older gringos, and the menu seems geared toward giving them a taste of home. On our visit, the entree choices were Chicken Tikka Masala, BBQ Beef Brisket and Southern Fried Chicken, and all were outstanding.
What would have been nice to know in advance is that the dinner is BYOB, including setups if you prefer to bring liquor.
In all, a tasteful and elegant way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Not exactly a great bargain by local standards, but the food and ambiance were excellent.

It was a lovely setting and very special in that regard. The service was very good. We thought the food was disappointing. We had three choices. The beef selection that day was stringy and not very appealing. The chicken was ok but not special

The owner didn’t give us any directions, nor a phone number, the one phone number we found was disconnected. I sent her an email saying we couldn’t find the place, and NEVER heard back from her. It was a total bust, I would never repeat this experience. I’m rating star simply because it wouldn’t let me submit with no stars.

Food depends on what her selections are. I had lamb chops in January that were the best ever but this visit I really didn't like any selections. I chose the shrimp salad and it was so bland. Everything is always gorgeous and fresh but no flavor on this salad. The service is impeccable always and the ambiance is the best.

ALWAYS A TREAT TO HAVE SUNDAY BRUNCH AT THE MANSION!
The food, atmosphere and service are absolutely wonderful. Dining al fresco on the beautiful patio is very romantic. From the moment you enter the lovely mansion to the very last bite of your meal dining at Mansion de la Montitlan is a special treat. I highly recommend dining their for a special Sunday brunch.

As always, Connie answered our request immediately and followed up, greeted 5 of us at the door and checked on us frequently. Gayle also checked our table to see if all was perfect. The seating, food and dessert was wonderful and served beautifully. We love the MANSION for special ( this was a birthday) or any occasion.

Thank you so very much.

What a great spot. The owners welcomed us and check on us to make sure everything was ok. The food was great, service very attentive and the view and atmosphere are amazing. I will be going back on another Sunday.

Our family of four went for the set lunch on Christmas Day when we were visiting San Miguel. Terrific atmosphere, very friendly energetic crowd. Everyone seemed to be expats and they all seemed to know each other. We asked for a table on the patio, and were accommodated very cheerfully.

Food was excellent. We had chosen our entree (prime rib or rack of lamb had been the choice for that day) when we made our reservation. Our table tasted each and we thought they were both delicious. Began with a starter of pate, there was bread and 3 choices for dessert. We brought our own wine (they do not have any alcohol but have a small corkage fee of 100 pesos for any number of bottles you wish to bring).

We would be very happy to return and plan to do so the next time we're in SMA. Very good communication when we booked. Highly recommend it.

We went for Thanksgiving lunch with our family of 7. The ambience and food could not have been better! Our table on the terrace was perfect! We were easily able to talk among ourselves or enjoy neighboring tables. The service was top notch and the food was beyond our expectations! My husband is still raving about the tenderness of the turkey ! We recently bought a second home in San Miguel and heard about La Mansion de Montitlan at a party and it was exactly what we were hoping it would be!

Beautiful setting and wonderful food for Sunday Brunch. We will definitely bring our friends there again. It was a very special experience. The owner of this lovely mansion came to our table and was most charming and gracious as was Connie the hostess who greeted us.
