The rib-eye torta is amazing and so are the enchiladas. And to top it off, there is a deck a the top of the hotel where you... More

I met a friend here who recommended the place and it was quite excellent. I had a half Incan salad with quinoa and carne asada and a half naco torta. I don't mind quinoa, but I loved this salad. Did get some gristle in my carne, but overall one of the best salads I have had. The torta was a... More

Excellent food, atmosphere and entertainment. At check-in to the Clarendon they told us most guests each breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Gallo Blanco Cafe ... Hum, Really? After our first meal we understood why!! Also really enjoyed the Flamenco show and patio dining.

I had their eggs and chorizo for breakfast. The tortilla and beans were great compliments to the spicy chorizo. I also had lunch late in the afternoon when the restaurant wasn't busy. The aroma of the wood grill hit me as soon as I walked in. The margarita hit the spot right away. The half chicken was super juicy inside... More

I am not usually one to go to a hotel restaurant unless I'm staying at the hotel. This was different. Located in the Clarendon Hotel...which has been revamped into a slightly hipster place. The restaurant was open friendly. Sat at the bar. Had two margeritas a beer hand made guacamole and perfect Chillequilles...a nice Negro Modelo draft...all for $40.00!!! Food... More

We sort of stumbled upon Gallo Blanco Cafe while on a recent visit to Phoenix for a wedding, and we couldn't be happier about the chance meeting. Our original hotel didn't work out and after a quick internet search, we found the Clarendon Hotel (Gallo Blanco is in the Clarendon Hotel) had rooms available, so we quickly booked them. Needing...

On a weekend they were quite busy and sitting near the kitchen left me to hear "RUNNER" being called every few minutes for food to be brought out of the kitchen. But the food was good and the portions were large enough to share.

Located in the best hotel in Phoenix - The Clarendon. They have some amazing tacos and guac - on a whole different level than what you're probably used to.
