I went here thinking it would be a really outstanding restaurant, even though the reviews weren't that great-- I should have paid attention to the reviews. The atmosphere was superb but I bought the best steak dish on the menu, and the most expensive, and when it came to the table, I needed a magnifying glass to see it, and... More

After reading the mixed reviews, we almost didn't go. We are very glad we did. It was the most enjoyable meal we had in Buena Vista. We had a group of eight,including two very active toddlers. They sat us in our "own" section and took very good care of us. The margaritas are homemade and not full of the yucky... More

Tripadvisers.com Casa del Sol My wife and I have been dining at the Casa del Sol for almost 30 years on our seasonal visits. We had dinner there two weeks ago and again found its intimate adobe house and court yard ambiance very conducive to visiting over dinner. The service and food in our judgment is excellent. I order the... More

We were looking forward to some real Mexican food with a Colorado flavor. Instead we had over a hour wait to get the food after we ordered. We're talking about over $12 for an enchilada meal here. When it came it was mostly tasteless. Even the so-called Santa Fe enchiladas were terrible. The only thing that was worth eating was... More

We've been coming here for years and it seems that it's just not the same. The restaurant wasn't that busy and it seemed to take some time to get our food. The food is good though. The chips aren't anything special and the salsa tasted like any jar I can buy at the store. The place also is getting a... More

The outside of the restaurant is an adorable stucco adobe motif, the decorations inside make you feel like you are in a adobe home. We were excited to eat here, thinking that it would be like some of the New Mexican restaurants we have visited. The salsa was more chopped tomatoes and cumin, the "soup" was watered down beef broth... More

We descended on this place with 14 adults and children shortly after arriving in town for a week at Rainbow Lake Resort. We were seated in the enclosed outdoor patio, with a fountain in the center. The little ones enjoyed throwing pennies into the fountain, while the adults enjoyed Margaritas and taking pictures. Good food service, although the bill took... More

Pretty expensive, not for the family traveler unless you have a six figure income. Mexican food nothing special, nice waitress.
