Top Rooftop Bars

Quince

Voted the number one rooftop destination in the world in 2018, guests at Quince may come for the fantastic food but ultimately they stay for the outdoor DJ and the late night sushi.

The Restaurant

Despite being located right in the centre of busy downtown San Miguel, The Restaurant has a feeling of elegance to it. The Moorish architecture is worth a visit alone and the phenomenal food is just the cherry on top.

La Parada

It is hard to find a bad review about the Peruvian inspired food at La Parada. The decor is cool, modern and industrial-inspired but it is the authentic food that really steals the show.
