This neighborhood restaurant in a shopping center in Eldorado has New Mexican food that equals the best of any other restaurant in the Santa Fe area. The Sunday brunch is an inexpensive treat with enchiladas, stuffed green chiles, other New Mexican treats plus traditional fare such as French toast and eggs.

We had the burgers and the scallop/shrimp ceviche. The burgers were cooked perfectly, were juicy and delicious. The bun was a fresh baked roll and over all for the Santa Fe area it is an above average burger. The ceviche came with plenty of perfectly ripe avocado cubes which made it visually appealing. The tortilla chips were crunchy, fresh and... More

Lucky me...this is my “go to” local neighborhood restaurant. In the past 4 years I have had dozens of meals here (lunch or dinner) and every one has hit the mark. The menu is not changed so often that you are disappointed that your favorites have disappeared. However, there are new items added as well as daily specials to try... More

They serve some great black beans, yuca, a real treat to find here, nice setting, love the art currently hanging. This restaurant does a good job whatever you order and while it is open and casual, there is an intimate feel I enjoy. Nice, nice wait staff.

We visited this restaurant with a specific agenda. We are buying a house nearby and wanted to check out the nearest eatery. We were very pleased with our first visit. A nice selection of cold, mostly south of the border and local brews. I tried the Plato topical which was a good education in central cuisine. My companion said his... More

I have never had great food there and I have never had terrible food there. To be honest I have only had two meals there and my neighbors rave about this place so maybe I caught this place on slightly off days.The menu is not varied but the food is fresh and wholesome.

I've been going there since I moved from Colorado! The food is excellent, I go to have breakfast there almost every Sunday! The service is so good! I highly recommend the brunch buffet.

We brought a few clients from our galleries to dinner the other night! We were running a bit late, called to see if they would still accomodate us and they graciously invited us to come on over. The staff is so nice, the chef always come out to make sure all is well. We stayed beyond business hours enjoying the... More

Went there on a Saturday around 12:30 for brunch. Probably a bad sign that were only about 4 people eating at that time. We walked in and asked a girl who was standing around if we were to select our own table or be seated. She apparently was a customer also and said "I have no idea". At that point,... More
