This was our first meal in Sedona. I had the chicken quesadilla salad and my husband had a combo plate. Everything was fresh, well-prepared, and excellent quality for a good price. The setting is lovely and the service is delightful.b

Love a good margarita made with fresh lime and half the sugar. We enjoyed them with an order of nachos - a serving for one but definitely enough for two - loaded down with cheese and surprisingly boring... Just drink - or order something else to eat!

We were given a recommendation to this restaurant. It did not disappoint. Delicious black bean and guacamole taco with a green chile cheese enchilada. My husband had the Machaca beef burrito and loved it. Very nice menu!

I have visited Sedona before but this time I was taken to a Mexican Restaurant with a difference. The meal was absolutely divine and would be hard to replicate at home without some of the spices used. The Mitai I was persuaded to try was out of this world and very welcome after walking in the heat of the day.... More

We had eaten here three years ago and enjoyed it very much, so we stopped in again for a cool drink and an appetizer. They brought us a... More
