I eat at El Fidel every chance I get. The service is a little off, but the food can't be beat. Fantastic vegetarian options, in addition to carnivorous treats. Stopped in for lunch with family on the way back to Denver from Albuquerque, we all agreed it was the best meal of the trip. If you are in "the first... More

Unassuming, service and menu, but lovingly prepared fresh food. Older building, local art work on the walls for sale.

This is a unique find when one travels to this small Western Frontier town. The food is prepared with care and is upscale. The wine list is great and the walls are covered with art from local New Mexican artists. The hotel is on the historic register and the restaurant boasts high ceilings with the old adobe style.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was pleasant and clean. The food was fairly good but the service was awful to the point where we wondered if it was purposeful because none of us had ordered full meals. At the two-and -a-half hour mark, we cancelled our dessert orders, paid the check and left.

We checked out the reviews for local restaurants and ended up here and were very much pleased! I had the steak special paired with a glass of Conundrum Red which was delicious. My husband ordered the Lamb Meatballs and they were yummy and very unique. Unfortunately we were to full for dessert but the menu looked decadent!!!

Great brunch, attentive and informative staff, good location inside the Fidel. Hummus plate is something special.

Our server was initially charming, but ignored us throughout the meal. Our friends ordered an entrees - which they judged no more than adequate. We decided to chance ordering a dessert, but after waiting 45 minutes with no appearance or explanation, we stood to leave. The server offered no apology or explanation. Although the restaurant had just one or two... More

My family was touring the Las Vegas, NM area and when we got hungry we turned to Trip Advisor for a suggestion. The wait staff was great yet we found the meals to be over-priced for the level of average that they were. There were the three of us and we each ordered something different from the dinner menu. I... More

We were invited to El Fidel by some friends. What a rare find in Las Vegas, NM!! The Sunday breakfast and lunch menus were available and included many incredible dishes. The food delivered beyond our expectations. We will be going back this Sunday as well. Plus the historical aspects of this building are worth exploring.

This little restaurant has evolved over the years, but it has never wavered in its commitment to serve inventive and excellent food and drink. With the expansion into a coffee bar atmosphere in the mornings, and a very nice assortment of on-tap craft beers to match an extensive wine cellar, the El Fidel offers something for everyone. Menu items are... More
