Very enjoyable bistro located in the middle of the downtown area of Paso. Wine by the bottle a bit expensive but more reasonable by the glass.

Just spent three days in PR. Asked around for local's to recommend a favorite steak dinner spot. Website showed braised short ribs. Villa Creek came up multiple times as having good steaks and a really good margarita. Made a reservation for four of us at 7:00 on a Thursday night. Not at all what we thought. Selection of steaks was... More

While highly-rated, our first, and last visit was a disappointment. Young woman at front desk had attitude and poor customer skills. Sat us at front table near busy and loud lounge with wind when either door was opened. She was unhappy when we asked to be moved and seated us alone in the back room. Menu was very odd for... More

Villa Creek was recommended to us at one of the wineries we visited. It was Taco Tuesday and I think all the tacos were $2.50. We ordered from the bar menu. Four of us split 3 appetizers and we each ordered tacos. The Hatch chile and Shepherd's plate were our favorites. The Not Nachos comes with duck that seemed too... More

Paso is very popular for eating out, and we almost didn't get anywhere as we hadn't pre-booked. Got in here by chance. It is a little pricey, however that's the same in most of the busy restaurants in this small town. Food was pleasant enough, staff polite and helpful.

During our dinner, we were greeted by several staff including one of the Partner/Owners. All were super-friendly. Nice décor using uprooted grapevines--very unique. Food was great, but nothing overwhelmed us. Not bad and we would visit again.

My friend and I went to get a bite to eat and a glass of wine. My friend had the house burger and said it was okay. I decided to just enjoy a glass of wine. We sat on the outdoor patio in the evening, which was amazing! If the service would have been better, I would have given the... More

Nice atmosphere but the food is way too salty. I've noticed that in restaurants in this town. It's like they are catering to the geriatrics who have lost some of their sense of taste. Loved it when they had live music on Thurs. nights in the back courtyard.

Wow! If you are a chili lover, this is the best pork chili this side of Las Vegas, NM... Excellent flavor, chiles really come through, fried egg on top (a ranchero huevo?), queso fresco, and succulent pork chunks. A good glass of Zin to go with it and you are all set! You will not be disappointed, I gar-on-tee...
