Good but Overpriced

This restaurant has been established in Old Town for years and for valid reasons, they offer good food and service. Unfortunately, the other thing they offer is a high price for their menu items.

After waiting 10 minutes to be seated with only a quarter of the restaurant full on a Sunday morning, I had to beg a waitress (hostess was no where to be found at 9am) to sit at a small table in the corner of the restaurant. It took another 10 minutes to be waited on. Very unorganized group. I ordered... More

We used this restaurant in hotel Albuquerque, for a large family function and they were very helpful in accommodating us. We made the arrangements weeks before and we thought we were going to have about 20 guests turned out only had about 15. We did change from outside to inside at the last minute. They put us in a nice... More

Breakfast had a selection of traditional eggs, etc, but also fruit with yogurt or cottage cheese. Fresh ingredients and served at correct temperature. Dinners were tasty, but entrees could easily serve two.

Came here expecting authentic Mexican food. Food was very generic, salsa seemed store bought! Service was ok! The only thing they had going was the food was fast!

I stayed at the Hotel Albuquerque and ate at Garduno's four times including, one night by myself as the family was getting burned out on Mexican food. Service one night was excellent. The rest of the time slow. How can you have 3 tables of 1-2 people and just vanish for 5 minutes at time What are they doing? I... More

Do not go here, at least for a while. The service is slow. The food is entirely too expensive for the quality. The menu failed to mention nuts that were on the chocolate cake and when I swapped it out for a dessert that was supposed to be nut free, I ended up with a contaminated dessert. Luckily I caught...

Gardunos has been a long time staple in Albuquerque and we were thrilled to find it in the hotel. Our breakfast was delicious and the patio seating was gorgeous.

Nice looking Mexican restaurant associated with the Albuquerque hotel. Food was fine, service was very attentive - a little pricey but not outrageously so. Portions were enormous - we all left stuffed, with food still on the plate.

We stopped in for a margarita before our trolley tour of Albuquerque. I had a jalapeno margarita and my wife had a cucumber margarita. We sat at the bar and watched as the bartender prepared them. Great New Mexican flavors. Only thing is They are $$. We spent close to $25 on 2 drinks and a tip. I suppose that's... More
