This is one of the best Italian dining experiences, not just in Baja, but anywhere. While the restaurant itself is very nice and the staff are great, what really puts this experience over the edge is the incredible food. Two of us split the caprese salad, the fish carpaccio (bonita that night) and the lobster ravioli (all accompanied by the... More

Great ambiance and service. The marlin carpaccio was to die for. The bread/rolls were also delicious. Will go there every year!

It was a pretty spot to sit in the evening, and the sushi was very good (but not as good as Copa Cocina). The margaritas, like almost everywhere else we went, were too limey. This is likely the most expensive place to eat in Todos Santos.

We spent ages on a Sunday night driving around Todos Santos looking for a restaurant that was open. We were happy to find the Santa Fe as it is attractive, clean and people seemed happy (staff and customers). But the food was disappointing. Nothing particularly to recommend it and the bill was quite high.

Excellent Food and fabulous ambiance. The restaurant is like a peaceful oasis - you pay for this since there are other more reasonably priced places to eat in Todos Santos but it really was special for our last night. A treat.

We'd heard fine things about fine food at Cafe Santa Fe. The food was OK (one meal was good, the other only fair), but poor value for the money. You can have 3-4 dinners at any of several other Todos Santos restaurants such as Miguels with as good or better food for what one dinner costs at Santa Fe. And... More

We just moved back to Baja after 7 years on the other side of the country - we had not been back to Café Santa Fe in all those years but when we went back this past week end, we were delighted to discovered that nothing (or almost nothing) there has changed... same owner, same server, same type of food...

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.
