Although I have visited Cafe Pasqual's many, many times, it's always been my breakfast destination. This past week, I had the opportunity to go to dinner here and it was excellent. I had the Crispy Salvadoran Plantain Chips as an appetizer and the Plato Supremo for dinner. Both were excellent. The waitstaff was very attentive and I never waited for... More

This place is always really busy for good reason! This is a must for any foodie passing through Santa Fe. The smoked trout hash is amazing and all of the other dishes being consumed at the common table we sat at looked awesome too. My only complaint was the long wait and lack of a place for patrons to comfortably... More

My husband and I tried this for breakfast, remembering that we had a great breakfast there some years ago. The interior had not changed - very cramped and crowded, very relaxed servers - food was ok, not exceptional. They seemed offended when my diabetic husband asked for splenda for his coffee! -

I had the barbacoa quesadillas, with the servers help. Wonderful! Paired with the Lyrc Pinot-Divine! I will definitely be back!

The best Chile Relleno we've ever eaten. Before you plan to visit make a reservation for lunch or dinner. If you choose not to make a reservation be prepared to sit at the large, oval community table.

We enjoyed having lunch there as we were passing through on way to Angel Fire. Staff was kind and made great suggestions. I'd skip the organic cola, but their food was excellent.

Cafe Pasqual's was our favorite dining for over ten years, but something has changed. New Mexico and Mediterranean food, get your reservations far in advance as it is small and fills quickly. They have a large community table, which sometimes accommodates walk-ins. In the past, we found it is great for brunch or dinner, but not lunch, as the menu... More

Wow! There were so many wonderful choices! We had a delicious meal here, with a very attentive wait staff to boot. The salmon special was out of this world, the mole enchiladas, lamb tagine, and the green chile bison burger were all wonderful! I hear the breakfast is great, too.

Can be crowded so prepare for wait. They do have a community table if you want to try that. I had a shredded beef dish topped with fried eggs & a red sauce & cilantro. Great!! Parking is limited so if staying nearby, walk

Make a reservation, you will not be disappointed. Innovative dining experience, it is always a pleasure to so what new items are in store. Everything is fresh tasting, great dining experience. SLOW~COOKED LAMB SHOULDER TAGINE was delicious - only complaint too much food! Great place to eat.
