Living in Fountain Hills, we used to look forward to visiting the original in Cave Creek for good food and relaxing suroundings. When we learned we would get the second iteration in Fountain Hills we were happy. The food is just as good and it...More

We twice had excellent, reasonably priced food with good service in early May 2017. When next in Fountain Hills, we will for sure stop for another meal at El Encanto de la Fuente (elencantorestaurants.com).

Always have had good service and good food here. I really like the lamb barbacoa. Never had a meal here I didn't like and the service has always been good. There is a nice patio.

Food is okay and margarita was super sweet (as in taste, not colloquial use of the word). We looked up a margarita recipe, and the bartender was nice enough to make it for us.

This is your typical Mexican food restaurant. Nothing more, nothing less. The margaritas are decently made- not great and it doesn't seem that they use fresh ingredients or make their own mix, but they'll do in a pinch.

We used to drive 25 miles one way to eat at the El Encanto in Cave Creek, but that is not necessary anymore. The new El Encanto in Fountain Hills is just as good and more convenient for us. The food has been excellent, especially...More

We are longtime, regular customers at El Encanto and have enjoyed every meal there until recently. Something strange is going on at El Encanto, and we wonder whether it is under new ownership or management. The last two times we've been there, I ordered a...More

We just happened upon this restaurant when the restaurant at Saguaro Lake was closed on Tuesday night. Driving back into Scottsdale we researched restaurants in Fountain Hills and chose El Encanto- we knew about the one in Cave Creek but not this location. Seated quickly...More
