We enjoyed our dinner in this restaurant at the Far Sight Lodge in Mesa Verde. We ordered the tortilla soup, house salad, trout and relleno and enjoyed our food. Service is by foreign students working in National Parks for the season and it’s always a delight to strike up a conversation with them.

We really wanted to try the famous black bean flat bread, but unfortunately it was sold out. We still had a good meal. The most memorable dish was the delicious Walnut Apple Salad. Service was excellent.

A restaurant in a place like this, with captive clients, who do not really have much choice, should be more versatile, and not be almost an "ethnic" South Western cuisine. I am not keen about that taste, and It was suggested to me to move to the lounge... Finally the waitress managed to give us something that we could eat.... More

Far View Lodge Metate Room is an elegant place to enjoy a fine meal. Beautiful Navajo rugs decorate the walls. If you are seated at a table by the windows you also have a great view. View or not, the service was very good and our food was excellent. As you may gather it is on the expensive side. The... More

Breakfast buffet was plentiful and had many options. Cost was more than I would have liked to pay, but the was little other options. We were there at the end of the season and it showed. We opted not to eat dinner in the dining room since the prices were very high. Instead went into the lounge for a drink... More

Our group enjoyed a wonderful meal. The bar was fine. The room was quiet and the view was great at sunset. The walk from our room was relaxing and the stars filled the sky
