This is a great gem of a restaurant between Santa Fe and Espanola right off the freeway North of Santa Fe. Many locals frequent this restaurant. They are famous for the table-made guacamole. You can choose the ingredients so you are never disappointed!! Mexican food is great here, but my husband and I go for the "Guac". I saw a... More

Our friends took us here for our daughters birthday. What a nice dinner. The food was great. The service was friendly and fast. The guacamole made table side was delicious.

This place is awesome. The margaritas are the bomb and they do the quacamole right at your table. It took our guy about 1 minute to make a fresh quacamole salad right in front of us. It is a nice cozy place with great food and service. It is a little outside of toun but only about a ten minute... More

Good food, great atmosphere, outdoor setting. We always eat here when we travel to Taos. It is also close to several casinos. Makes for a nice day.

Very great choices of Santa Fe specialties. A little outside town after Opera House. Service and ambiance very nice and certainly a bargain compared to many similar Santa Fe Mexican Restaurants. Very nice menu options. I had the seafood fajitas, scallops, shrimp and snapper, really superb. Wife's green chile enchilada also very good. Guacamole excellent and rice, beans and fresh... More

The food was awful. Tourist trap. Bad quality and expensive. What a waste of $60. The guacamole and margarita was the only thing that was decent enough to to finish. Will never return.

Gabriel's is a restaurant that I should have given a 5 Star review to, however, the most I can give it is a 3 Star. The food is definitely 5 Star Plus, but the extremely poor service brings it down to a 3 Star - and I am being generous. I am having a hard time thinking when the last... More

This restaurant is my family's favorite place for NM food. We try to time our trips to our 2nd home in Angelfire, NM with a lunch or dinner stop here. Their specialty is table side made guacamole. It is simply the BEST! Our favorites are the chicken enchiladas, chili rellano, fajitas, tortilla soup and even the vegan options like black... More

Tacos filled with juicy beef, fresh guacamole made at the table, hot so papillae with honey. These are the highlights of our recent visit to Gabriel's. Perhaps it was our long drive there, my level of hunger, or the fact that it was Christmas Eve at 1:45 pm, but they seemed a little unorganized when we arrived. The restaurant was... More

If you are going north out of Santa Fe, it would be a mistake to not stop at Gabriel's for lunch or dinner! While in NM for our anniversary, this was by far our favorite restaurant! The server was nice and attentive! The Guacamole is made right at the table... The Margarita's were some of the best I've ever had...... More
