The food was fabulous and so was the staff. One of the best places I've ever been in San Antonio. Definitely request a table by the window so you can enjoy the view of the river walk!

We loved the food! The atmosphere was very nice. We got a window seat overlooking the river walk. Staff was friendly. I'll definitely visit again! Oh, and the omelettes are made right in front of you and came out excellent!!!

I've dined at Las Canarias many times and my favorite experiences are their Sunday champagne brunch and their tasting dinner menu. They setup an incredible spread for their brunch to include the following stations; salad station with cheese and charcuterie, omelet station, carving station, breakfast breads, fresh fruit, their famous chile quilmes, shrimp cocktail, and for dessert, either crepes, bananas...

We have lived downtown on the river in San Antonio for 2-1/2 years and we have been told that Las Canarias was a great restaurant but we did not pay much attention since it is a hotel restaurant on the river. This was a bad mistake. My friends took me to dinner on my birthday tonight and what I found... More

I almost didn't eat here because I don't typically like buffets but after looking at the food I was sold! This was one of the best brunches I've ever had!! Bring your pocket book for the champagne brunch but it is well worth it. The staff were also so nice. Can't wait to go back!!

We chose the three course meal from the chefs choices. Amazing. The desserts were fresh and the drinks were fresh and well made. Our waiter was courteous and knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. Get the after dinner cappuccino with rock candy stir stick!!

Truly enjoyable dining experience in a lovely atmosphere. The buffet had a wide variety of delicious selections including made to order omelets, fresh fruits and berries, jumbo shrimp, prime rib, pastries and more. The mimosas were wonderful! The service was excellent and we were never rushed. We were celebrating our anniversary and were presented a special Anniversary plate of red... More

Started dinner with two appetizers that came out to our table looking beautiful and tasting even better. For entrees, tenderloin and chicken were ordered and again they were outstanding. I would highly recommend this place.
