Consistently better than most Santa Cruz Valley restaurants

We've dined there numerous times, sometimes excellent food, sometimes just "good". Service typically excellent. Terrible seats, long overdue for new cushions and height.

Having spent 2 nights at the resort we came 3 times to Stables Restaurant. Twice for dinner, which was very, very nice and once for breakfast. Prices are reasonable for dinner but high for breakfast which was not good at all. My husband had eggs Benedict and I had oatmeal with fruit which was gummy, not even quite sure how... More

The food and atmosphere are outstanding. The Wednesday night prime rib night with 50% off wines is a must do but you need to get there early to be sure you'll get the prime rib cut you'd like. The Bar menu is also very good. Service is usually outstanding.

This restaurant is located at the Tubac Golf Resort and Spa. It is made up of several rooms and outdoor seating. It was about 100 the day we were there so we opted to eat inside at a table that looked out at the golf course and the mountains. The menu was quite fancy with specialty dishes that all sounded...

This is the one restaurant that really upsets us. It is lovely, in a beautiful setting and the food is really very good. Why, oh why is the service so poor here? They have so much going for them, but no effort is made in having an alert, attentive and pleasant staff. I recommend that the manager go to "North"... More

Just outside the business district, this restaurant is part of a new golf community called Otero Ranch. Food and service were wonderful. Ambience was great with view of the mountains. Prices were moderate. It felt peaceful.

Outdoor seating on the covered deck overlooking the golf course and Santa Rita Mountains is never a bad way to have a meal. The well prepared gazpacho, loaded Sonoran hot dogs, and decent drink selection sealed the deal. The interior decor and ambiance is tastefully appointed, worthy of special occasions and a nice evening out. Service is friendly and efficient,... More

We had a lot of trouble finding the place. If you are not familiar with the area or specifically the grounds that this restaurant sit on, I would get directions before you go. It is in a string of white buildings that are not marked and don't look like there is a restaurant hiding back there. We were seated by... More
