I'm always wary of museum restaurants, but this one surprised me. We had dinner and a concert there on a Friday night, a really nice experience, though not cheap. The food was beyond expectations -- salmon with mago salsa, steak and fries, bbq'd shrimp in prosciutto. Good quality ingredients and everything was tasty. Wonderful orange-almond cake for dessert. Friendly service... More

The restaurant is located between the Museum of International Folk Art and Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, so location, location, location. The setting is nice with both inside and outside seating. The man seating us was not very welcoming but our server was great. The menu is extensive and varied, so something for everyone. One of us had the... More

The Museum Hill Café literally and figuratively has one of the top locations in Santa Fe. It is on Museum Hill with a view toward the Jemez Mountains and one of the higher restaurant locations in the city. It is within feet of the Old Santa Fe Trail and close to four excellent museums allowing you good access to, and... More

Museum Hill Cafe is a good option for a break or meal on museum hill in Santa Fe. Attentive service and an eclectic menu fit right in with the four different museums on museum hill. A nice place to chill between museums.

What a lovely spot with an eclectic menu, fantastic coffee and friendly service. It does get busy here so my advice is to arrive early for lunch.

This restaurant is lovely; a nice break between the International Folk Art Museum and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. Great food -- the best salad I had in New Mexico (and I needed it after all those enchiladas) and the atmosphere was wonderful -- a great view and a classical guitarist playing.

This is a wonderful Santa Fe restaurant offering an impressive array of food—all of it delicious. Try the smoked duck flauta, Asian shrimp tacos, housemade mushroom taquitos and enchiladas suizas. Also serving creative menus paired with current exhibits at the Museum of International Folk Art and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, like the four-course Brazilian menu inspired by... More

I had lunch here and was underwhelmed. I dine out for lunch on Santa Fe at least twice a week and this has to be ranked close to the bottom. I had the soup and sandwich. The soup was flavorful, but I think that the portion size was perhaps 1/2 cup. The sNeich was also good, but barely the size... More

This place has been steadily improving and upping their game since it opened, what....10 years ago already? I recently met some very well travelled friends there for lunch. It was one of those gorgeous early fall days in Santa Fe, and the patio seating overlooking the sculpture plaza and mountains beyond was a perfect setting. The menu is a bit... More

It was a gorgeous sunny but not-too-hot day and we sat outside on the patio. We had a wonderful Brazilian lunch with wine pairing for a great price! $33 for 2 for all the courses plus only $10 each for 4 different wine pairings. The food was absolutely excellent and gourmet quality, without a doubt. Service started out very rocky... More
