This is an incredible restaurant! Located inside the Pueblo Cultural Center, Pueblo Harvest is a true gem in the desert. Dinner selections include Elk, Bison, Boar, Salmon, Trout, Pheasant and more traditional entrees. The restaurant also offers traditional native foods like Mutton Stew (not for the faint of heart), calabacitas, fry bread etc. I had the Bison Short ribs and... More

Shame on me, I would never have guessed I would have a 5 star experience in a restaurant co-located with a Native American Cultural Center / Tourist Attraction but that is exactly what happened. First thanks are in order - to the folks who took the time to review this gem on Tripadvisor and let the secret out, at the... More

This is the place where you want to eat if you visit this museum; the menu is varied and good as is the service and the atmosphere. The meals are VERY large so be sure to ask when you are ordering. I could only eat about 1/4 of my taco salad and since we were headed directly to the airport,... More

If you are interested in trying New Mexican cuisine or haven't experienced pueblo cuisine (Indian fry bread, horno pizza, etc.), then find your way to Pueblo Harvest Cafe. We go for breakfast or lunch at least every other week - good service as well.

Featuring Starbucks coffee; blue cornmeal pancakes were very good, with perfect bacon. Very comfortable setting with very good service. Worth visiting with or without the museum.

The Pueblo Harvest Cafe is located inside the Pueblo Indian Cultural Center, a museum and performance center with huge gift shops that's a collaboration among the many disparate pueblos and their peoples. The Center itself is an excellent orientation if you're planning on touring the pueblos-- Acoma's Sky City is not to be missed-- or if you have never been... More

Yes - most people in the American west know about Navajo tacos - at least in New Mexico, Arizona, etc. But this restaurant is the real deal re: American Indian food. The atmosphere is wonderful - as is the whole Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, with a museum, shops etc. The food is terrific with lots of different dishes that... More

Our family had breakfast here this morning and it was awesome. We all went with heuvos rancheros. It was to much for me to finish but my husband ate all his food. The waitress was amazing. The service all around was amazing. Some of the best Mexican food I've had in a long time. My husband said it reminded him... More

After visiting the museum, we elected to eat at the cafe. Ordered the Pueblo Feast--it was a feast indeed! We ate until we couldn't hold any more. This is a sampler meal for two--stew/soup, side dishes typical of the pueblos, bread, desserts. Excellent food, and different from regular restaurant fare.
