Busier than usual according to excellent waitress The food, enchilladas and beef stew was very tasty, served hot. And plenty of it. Saw some desserts pass that looked so delicious. Everyone seemed to be happy. Pretty place too

We have had delightful meals here for many years -- it's worth the drive! Fabulous food in a beautiful setting delights us on every visit. The menu is tailored to suit any size appetite with a nice selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts!

We sat outside surrounded by a small garden of flowers and had an excellent bottle of Pinot Noir from Willamette, Oregon. The service was outstanding as well as the waiter having a sound understanding of various wines. The setting was idyllic. The weather was perfect. The dinner was obviously prepared by a well trained chef. I had scallops with orzo... More

10 minutes outside of Durango, it is worth the drive. The food is also great and the outdoor patio provides a wonderful view.

I always look forward to revisiting this place while we come to Durango. They use fresh produce from farmers market, and always have a good variety on the menu. I've tried different entrees and never been disappointed.

Really,really amazing food and an impressive wine list. I had the fennel crusted pork tenderloin with farro risotto and grilled asparagus. It was to die for! Finally a chef that isn't afraid to season their food. The service was great too and the cafe couldn't be in a more beautiful spot. If you're staying in Durango it's definitely worth the... More

We visited this restaurant with some friends for a double date. They live in the area and said it was good. It was more than good, it was great! The service was over and above anything we could have wanted. Our choice was to eat outside and we were seated at a nice little table with an umbrella to shade... More

We went here twice on this trip. The first time we were seated indoors and I had the scallops and my husband had lamb. They were both excellent. (Our friends had the Mexican dish that was on special - they were less impressed with their selections, but it wasn't actually Tex Mex, which could have been their problem.) We liked... More

This restaurant is located right off the highway and is hidden behind a grove of wild flowers. The wait staff is more than helpful. The wind was blowing lightly through the windows and mountains are all around. It is a bit pricey, but the food was worth it. I had a dirty martini with my steak, and it was great.... More
