The guacamole and margaritas are famously good. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We had enchiladas and burritos for our meal and they were excellent. We will be back!

Great and authentic food...fairly priced, great ambiance and location...I am recommending it already. Took friends from New Brunswick with young family last month and another couple from New Brunswick too, last Tuesday. Both pleasant experiences...

The service was great, but the food made all three of us sick and I'm still having stomach issues, so there was definitely something bad in it. I'm guessing the guacamole because we all had it.

Had the pleasure of eating here last night before concert. Husband highly recommends the octopus tacos. Our dinners were delicious and service was impeccable. Will be back when we are in town.

Don’t be fooled by their website. This is not a fancy place. There is a bowl filled with lollipops at the entrance/exit. Its basically a Mexican Montanas. Staff are nice though...not too helpful with the menu cause they basically say everything is their favourite. But nice. If you think you want to try mole for the first time because you see it constantly on food network shows.. don’t do it. It’s exactly how disgusting you think it is. Grainy, dark coloured cardboard turned into a sauce and drenched over, very well cooked, chicken. Also, looks like the owner doesnt care to improve on anything, in their reply to my google review they wished that I would never return. Don't understand why they would think I would want to, though.

Food was not up to the expectation. Everything tasted like either pre-made and got heated up, and the beer was flat (unless if that's what mexican beer should be)... i'd come for a drink and apps, but my family didn't quite enjoy the food.

Had a lunch reservation for six people at 12:15pm. When we got there, the host was on the phone for several minutes, not acknowledging the line that was building up. The restaurant was not very full and other employees were wandering around, but nobody else acknowledged the people waiting in line. Once we put our order in, it took over an hour to get our food. Again, the restaurant was maybe 1/3 full, and we all ordered relatively straightforward menu items, so I'm not sure what the delay was. I passed by the kitchen on the way to the restroom and all the people in there looked pretty chilled out. We got no updates from the waitress; eventually, we asked her what was going on and she said (without checking) that it was almost ready. The food was decent, but unless you have a 2 hour break for lunch the service is way too slow.

Everything was amazing. Our main server was lovely, the food was delicious. Those who were clearing the table were a bit too eager - taking a couple of plates that still had a bit of food on them. That would be my only complaint. Everything else was great!

Loved having brunch here for the first time, this past weekend. The food was amazing, the ambience was perfect for a beautiful Sunday, and the staff was impeccably caring. Huge thank you to Harri for taking care of my friend and I, as well as the rest of the incredibly kind staff who checked up on us during our meal!

Food was authentic and good, no complaints. The service, though, was lacking. We had three different wait staff at our table throughout our meal. Waitress 1 was good, but about halfway through the meal she stopped coming by (and was waiting on other tables outside) and the other two stepped in. When we finished we were in the mood for more drinks and ordered them, but waitress 2 never brought them. Waiter came by later and asked if we were ready for our check or wanted something more. By that point we were done with them and left. Place was mostly empty, not sure why there was such a lapse in service.

Came for dinner after seeing a show, and the restaurant was not very busy. It did take a little while before anyone came to seat us (did have a reservation), and once seated our waiter was very attentive. He took us through the menu and made recommendations for my friend since she could not have anything spicy. Our meal arrived before our starter, so that was a bit disappointing. Then my friend ordered a different taco and that took a solid 15-20 minutes to arrive (for a plain beef taco). The restaurant starter to get busier, and we saw our waiter less. By the time we were done, it took us close to 30 minutes to get someone's attention to get our bill so we could leave. Asked a couple of servers but no action. There were a lot of people standing around but no one actually helping us. The food and drinks were good, the restaurant is nice, but the service needed work from start to finish - inconsistent.

I have to say, I won't go back. The food was fine - not amazing, but fine (and certainly not as good as I remember in past). The service was terrible. We went through our entire meal with empty water glasses on our table and no water. It took so long to get drinks and place our food order that we ultimately had to wolf our food down to leave for a play. I don't know if they were just horribly understaffed or the staff is just poor, but there are too many good restaurants in Toronto to go back there.

Owned by Mexico-born brothers, Arturo and Andres Anhalt, Milagro has grown to three locations in Toronto. Alongside the food menu, there’s a huge selection of tequila, Mezcal, wine beer and cocktails.

Best Restaurants for Tasty Cold Summer Treats in Toronto

There is a real art to a great ceviche. First of all, you have to choose seafood that is firm enough to stand up against all that liquid. Then, you must “cook” it with enough citrus that it penetrates the meat and also delivers a dynamic finish. One of the best places to get real ceviches is Milagro Cantino. Arturo and brother Andrés Anhalt hail from Mexico City and know what it takes to make a stellar ceviche.
