Everything we've had at this restaurant .. delicious! Mahi cakes.. yum. My husband thought this was the best hamburger (with avacado) he'd had.. saying alot! The atmosphere is really nice and peaceful. In the Kayenta Art Village. We've been back twice since visiting the area.

Finally, Xetava offers flame grilled burgers for lunch! Previously only offered at dinner, now a 1/2 pound gormet burger offered for lunch. I had the Applewood Bacon Blue Bugger and it was fantastic with grilled mushrooms. My husband opted for the Xetava Classic burger made his way. Never knew I could like kale chips but these were crispy and delicious.... More

We had a fantastic breakfast here, Great Service & Food. The location is also very beautiful, right at the foot of the mountains.

So you want to find a fun place for brunch right? Look no further than xetava and all the current hipster fad foods you can find! Really the menu was comprised of everything that's currently in style, except avocados at the moment but that's a supply issue. The food actually tasted really good and was well made if you set...

We had dinner here in late April, 2014. We were very pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed the experience and can understand why this is a restaurant that brings diners in from some distance given the limited choices in the area. Our meals were excellent and innovative. Try the grilled caesar salad! The restaurant design itself is interesting inside... More

The owner accommodated us without reservations and blew us away with the tastiest meal we have had in a while and by far better than anything we had in the area. Would return to So Utah just to dine here and have another amazing coffee drink again.

This lovely café nestled near the red mountains offers outstanding food, wine selections, and views. Independently operated by a congenial couple, the brown ale pork, garlic chili lamb, and pasta dishes offered for dinner are extraordinary. Weekly specials complement the standards on the menu and often provide something out of the ordinary. The burgers here are fantastic, as are all... More

Xetava is located in a beautiful setting,has lots of ambiance and a unique, upscale menu. Our party of 4 well travelled seniors enjoyed the dinner experience overall, but...that experience fell short of expectations in some areas. First, the good news. Friendly staff, nice greeting, personable service, great flavors. Menus, both food and beverage, are relatively limited so suggest looking at... More

Spectacular surroundings for a neighborhood cafe and art gallery! Just a few miles thru / past Santa Clara, UT ( northwest of St. George, UT ) which by the way is such a cute little town / village too! Wonderful decor, nice staff and really unusual food items! Outdoor seating on a really nice patio! We had breakfast, I had... More

The place is nice but the food is not good. I'm not into the whole earthy granola taste and that's what this reminded me of.
