We have friends that live in the greater Santa Fe area and they said that this was their favorite place to go. So we went here and certainly enjoyed it; Especially enjoyed the chilled mango soup!

Located inside La Fonda hotel, a beautiful historic hotel in the Santa Fe Plaza, is La Plazuela--great service, great dinner, great sopapillas! They were able to accommodate our large group and provide dinner in a timely manner.

We had breakfast at this place. The inside was almost as if you were sitting outside, the had glass doors that were decorated in Indian culture. Food was good as well.

We stayed at La Fonda for 4 nights a week ago and I had to have the eggs benedict with tomatillos every morning because it was so good and unusual. The staff was friendly and the service great. As a bonus, the lattes were served with little swizzle sticks of sugar, Yum!

I knew this place 20 years ago and I love it. The food is always great for the price. The whole staff is kind and friendly. The architecture, the ambience and the decoration by it self are good reasons to be at La Plazuela. Do not forget to eat at this excellent place.

Our first outing in Santa Fe was at this restaurant. The food was delicious and potions very generous. Burrito La Plazuela, Carne Asada, Chili Rellenos, and Torta de Porrego. The flan dessert was drizzled with delightful caramel. Service was excellent and environment bright and interesting.

The food is upscale Mexican / South Western and we started with some Guacamole made... More

This wonderful restaurant is inside the La Fonda Hotel off the plaza in Santa Fe NM. While pricey, it is well worth it. The ambiance and the food are both very special. We went there to celebrate my son's 22nd birthday. He ordered a drink and had his official state driver's license clearly showing his date of birth and was... More
