Sometimes you just luck out. A warm friendly greeting at the door, a lovely waitress, and a fish dinner (red trout) that is outstanding. The dining room is large and charming with the many hand painted windows, trees and fountain. There are many fine restaurants...More

The service was great and the fountain in the middle provided lovely background noise. The guacamole prepared at the table is a real treat. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable--you will love it!

We had dinner for 10 here; the location is really something to see. Service and presentation were quite good; dinner was a bit pricey, however. You have to eat here, at least once, if you're spending time in Santa Fe.

I ate here twice, once alone and once with my wife and 2 friends. In both cases, the food was very good, and the service excellent. The setting is impressive and overall much better than I might have expected given that the restaurant is part...More
