We were a little disappointed with this Mexican Restaurant, who claims to be Sedona's best. Firstly, there is no wine list - only a choice between Chardonnay or Cabernet. We chose the local cabernet, however when it arrived we informed the waiter that it was "Jacobs Creek" definitely not local, and being "kiwis" we know Jacobs Creek very well. He... More

Heard it had a view of the rocks and just wanted some good Mexican Food at the Plaza. The umbrellas and trees blocked the view. It was just Ok. Salsa and guacamole was just ok. Got the shrimp taco. The shrimp looked like it came from taco bell. The beef taco tasted better. Tried taco salad. Nice atmosphere at the... More

Visited this restaurant on another trip to Sedona and was not disappointed! The food was tasty and the atmosphere was made all the better because of our server Jonathan! Thank you! We will return.

We had a nice lunch on the patio. While we didn't find the food to be exceptional, it was good. The salsa was the best. The margaritas were delicious! Worth a visit.

The chimichangas were fantastic. The guacamole tasted fresh. It was good there was a water pitcher on the table because we didn't see our waiter again until it was time for the check. It was a busy Sunday night but that is no excuse for not stopping by to ask if we need something else midway through the meal.

Make a reservation (especially for weekends) and sit on patio. Perfect atmosphere for chips, gaucamole and Corona. We ordered the pablanostuffed pepper and it was delicious. Would return! Not too fancy but not too casual...very comfortable.

While vacationing in Sedona, AZ we decided to grab a quick meal at El Rincon at the Talaquepaque plaza. It was by far one of the best Mexican feasts we've had in a long time. The flavors of the dishes were distinct and unlike the commercialized dishes experienced at many of the mexican restaurant chains. All of our items were... More

The restaurant was very busy on Saturday night. Luckily we had reservations. Our server, Pat, was excellent. She had other tables, one with 10 people, but she managed to give us great service. I was disappointed to see the bartender watch the staff all hustle and she just watched them, could have helped out a bit. Our meals were very... More

Great food and very charming. Located in the beautiful Tlaquepaque arts & crafts marketplace. The marketplace itself is worth the visit.
