Excellent little place near Asheville

Wanted a place about 1/2 hour east of Asheville. A little gem. Not many tables. Very friendly service and great food. Had turtle soup (excellent, made with turtle not veal) as well as a salad with fried oysters also delicious. My wife's steak was perfectly cooked as she wished it: rare to... read more

Wow, this place was definitely a surprise! Pulled up to the place, not expecting much but don't let the cover fool you! This place has EXCELLENT food and EXCELLENT service! We both had the Red Fish which was highly recommended and turned out to be very, very good. Que Sera is definitely a place you don't want to miss if... More

If you are in Black Mountain or anywhere close you must (and I mean must) treat yourself to this little jewel. I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and eat at many wonderful restaurants and this one blew my mind. Who would have thought in the little twin of Black Mountain they would have such a luxury. From... More

Had friends in town for dinner and this restaurant had been recommended. The food, and service were wonderful. We have been back several times and have never been disappointed. Gourmet qualify. Bravo.

We eat at Que Sera often, most recently for Valentine's dinner. We have always felt very welcome and the food is excellent. We are happy to hear that they will be moving to a bigger facility. In the winter, you can usually show up if you don't have reservations. Not so in the other three seasons! Diane and Richard G.

I have no idea why Que Sera is rated #5 in Black Mountain. It is by far the finest restaurant in town. Everything is delicious, regardless of what is ordered. We are so fortunate to have a restaurant of this quality in our little town!

Que Sera has been consistently excellent with fresh ingredients in Cajun and Creole style. They have the freshest fish in town and great special dishes each night. Whatever will be the special is special and that will be the dish I order. I have not been disappointed.

I had made reservations for Saturday evening for six. My husband and I were traveling to Black Mountain to visit our daughter who attends Warren Wilson College and planned to meet her and her 3 house mates at Que Sera for dinner. We were stuck in traffic for about an hour and a half due to a traffic accident ahead.... More

My wife was out of town so I stopped in for Sunday brunch. Extremely welcoming and laid-back atmosphere. Pleasant conversation with the owners and other guests in cozy table grouping. Inspired menu with many creations to choose. Food continues to be outstanding. Wait staff friendly and helpful, including "Little Angel" dressed in white serving biscuits and muffins. Finest in Black... More

Black Mountain, NC is not known for its fine dining. For example on tripadvisor, the #1 rated restaurant is only open for lunch and #2 is a coffeehouse! However #3 is Que Sera which should be #1 and would be in most small towns in western North Carolina. The few negative reviews I saw are written by guests whose whole... More
