Don Miguel's: Steaks You Could Knock a Camel Out With.
Some distance from the center, in the northern district of Kralovo Pole, Don Miguel's instantly rewards the intrepid diner with the aroma of good cooking as they make their way down the dark candle lit steps into the restaurant.
Low lit, wooden and intimate, the interior is faintly reminiscent of one of those modern country pubs, particularly in the non-smoking area with candles on the tables and a french dresser at the back.
Service is calm and friendly, and English spoken by the waiters. The menu also has pretty accurate translations as well, which is useful as there's quite a large selection to get through.
All the standards are available - nachos, burritos, enchiladas, etc - and most are pretty tasty, although one major drawback on the burrito is the massive overdose of frozen veg & soggy spinach.
Far more appealing are the steaks, cooked just how you want it and very tender & juicy.
On the whole, "Don Miguel's" is one of Brno's better dining options, with good food in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Certainly worth the journey north for a treat.
Favorite Dish: Don Miguel's "Kruty Bill Steak" - a hunk of beef sirloin smothered in a punchy three pepper sauce. It arrived on the table while I was in the bathroom, and on my return I thought they'd brought me a large chunk of chocolate cake instead.
About the size of two hockey pucks stuck together, it was nicely seared on the outside and just about bloody inside - exactly how I like it. The rich dark pepper sauce was smooth and surprisingly fiery.
