Ate too much for lunch and wanted something lighter for dinner. Pleasant surprise. Fresh ingredients here hit the spot. Will try for dinner at restaurant.

I was very pleased with the service, decor (beautiful setting with plenty of plants) and location of this restaurant. the owner is on top of things. My fish was delicious, cooked to the minute. Salad was very fresh and tasty. Some in my party ordered the steak and were disappointed. However, both our server and the owner came to offer... More

Lovely setting with lush tropical garden where you can eat. We liked the décor, mixture of Mexican and Italian. Pricing is a bit high but food was very goodl. We had pizzas (excellent) and seafood (excellent presentation). Probably the high end restaurant in this lovely town.

We had heard great things about this spot, so we knew we would be stopping in on this trip. Perhaps it was an off night for them, or maybe our hopes were too high, but we didn't find the food excellent. I am always surprised to see so much Italian food in Mexico, but we don't discriminate against food, and... More

The Santa Fe was recommended by other travelers in the Todos Santos area and it was excellent with both food and service. We dined Monday night as we were told it was not as crowded, and that indeed was the case as we got right in and had almost personal service for our group of 6. The soup of the... More

To put this review in perspective, I first ate at Cafe Santa Fe about 20 years ago and back then finding a good Northern Italian ristorante in Todos was exquisite. Fast forward, having dined at CSF 3-4 times over the last 5 years, including recently, I have promised myself not to go back. And, having reviewed many of the more... More

Serendipitously discovering this town and restaurant from an overheard conversation, we have been here numerous times and always enjoyed the experience. The rather mundane, long stucco wall facade of the restaurant belies the small, colonial Mexico looking entrance and interior which opens up into a beautiful garden in the back with nicely landscaped arbors, tables and chairs for al fresco...

From the first to the last I have always had a wonderful experience.Is it expensive, yes very, are the portions large enough so that everything, including the salad and appetizers, yes indeed.
