    I love this place. The food is not spicy at all. I like the mole pablano as well as the chicken on a bed of peppers and onions

    San Angel Inn used to be my fave. The atmosphere is to die for. Very dark, romantic and festive. Only thing is, the food went downhill and is now no better than your local "On the Border" except with killer surroundings. They used to make a better effort to give you authentic cuisine of Mexico and I really miss that. Also, the service the last 2 times I dined there was very unattentive and un-magical. If you're in Epcot, Le Cellier gets better and better all the time. I used to love Akershus before they did all character dining. If you really want to stick with Latino food, try Bongos in Downtown Disney.

    I think "spicy" is a very relative term. When I was younger, I would order things like Buffalo wings as a challange, to see how many I could eat before I couldn't take the heat anymore, whereas now I pound them down them like candy. I now sometimes catch myself snacking on Jalepeno peppers, and I have been heard to describe the "Blazin' Habanero" sauce we use on select dishes at Chili's as "Sweet initially, with a moderate kick found in the aftertaste." I also used to dislike Mexican style food, but now I love it. Obviously, I have grown fonder of spicy as I have grown older, and so my idea of what is spicy may not be the same as someone who does not have a taste for it.

    I myself have never eaten in the San Angel Inn. My ex-gf and her family ate there not all that long ago and they all claimed that they did not care for the food, and in fact, my ex complained that EVERYTHING she ate was too spicy for her. But then again, she is a very (in my opinion) boring eater... she wont even eat spaghetti sauce that has any sort of peppers or anything in it... BO-RING. But whatever. I am a regular however at the little counter service venue across the promenade, La Cantina de San Angel, and I absoultely LOVE the food there (I usually order the "Plato Combinacion"), and I don't find it very spicy at all. Just a touch of spicy... just enough to make it flavorful without being overpowering. I would assume that the San Angel Inn probably prepares their food items similarly, but once more I admit I've never tried it myself. So while I think that you will probably enjoy the flavors, perhaps your "spice-reluctant" co-diners might indeed find some of their dishes a bit TOO flavorful for their taste. I guess your best bet would be to consult your server before making any decisions.

    I completely agree. I'm not a fan of the CS place either. I'm a Texan so I'm pretty picky about my Mexican food

    San Angel Inn food is not spicey at all. If you ask they can probably leave the sauces off if you would like
