My husband & I decided to eat lunch here one summer afternoon. The setting was beautiful, both indoors & out. My husband had a hamburger that was charred under a flame. He still remembers the burger as "a thing of beauty" three months after the fact. We shared the french fries, and ohh! They were perfection! Crisp & fresh...obviously made... More

We ate outdoors. Ambiance was just lovely and the service was very good. Variety of delicious freshly baked breads. Food was very good. Wines were overpriced. It was indeed a memorable evening

We found this restaurant thru trip adviser and were not disappointed. We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary and had an amazing evening. It started out with a server placing red rose pedals on our table followed with a glass of complimentary champagne. Melissa our server was amazing and gracious in her service throughout the night. She recommended a great wine... More

We so adore the romantic, outdoor dining. One wall of the Loretto chapel with its large stone gothic revival wall to our left, French Romanesque feeling blending with Spanish Adobe all around and this restaurant sporting a new chef knocked our socks off. Service from the get go was perfect. Aimee was perfect in demeanor and timing. We had scallops... More

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. There are so many other places with better food and prices. We stayed at the hotel; therefore, location was a factor.

Came here first for lunch and sat on the patio. Beautiful setting with the fountain nearby. Had great service with a very nice waitress who accommodated us by making sure the chilis in one dish were put on the side. The lobster and crab enchiladas were the best I'd ever eaten. Went back for dinner and had the tasting menu... More

This well appointed breakfast venue had its seating outdoors overlooking one of the town's open markets. The food was delicious and the outdoor seating was elegant.

Arrived extra hungry so we decided to splurge and try a few different menu items. Everything was delicious and I can't wait to get back! The Pork Belly was amazing, crispy yet soft on the inside, great texture contrast and very creative to match it up with Harissa and sherry! The Gazpacho was lovely and had a great balance of... More
