“A little out of the way but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Lovely outdoor dining. Very good food and surprisingly good service even when busy. This place is easy to find if you are coming from St George but from anywhere else it can be difficult.

“What a Fabulous Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We recently had a golf tournament in St George, Utah & were looking for a place for a group dinner. Our responses in the St George area were not all that favorable. UNTIL we came upon the web site for Xetava.
Greg responded to my email immediately, they were very helpful in working with us within our budget for the group. When you take 22 people to a restaurant and receive 22 raves you know you have hit it big.
Our meal was exceptional and the service warm and friendly.
The restaurant is a little ways out of town, but the drive is beautiful & the community where the restaurant is located is just lovely. My recommendation, go early & enjoy the entire ecperience.
I have also learned that Xetava is open for breakfast & lunch so don't miss the opportunity.

“Xetava - Jewel of the Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Forget chain restaurants, Xetava is a one-of-a-kind local place that visitors and residents want to experience. The menu is always creative, varied and fresh. The staff is friendly and attentive. The views, ah the views of the towering red cliffs make Xetava the jewel of the desert.

“Funky and tasty spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Small, funky cafe with pleasant, shaded outdoor seating. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating about small changes to a menu item. I had a very good, trendy salad which included strawberries and feta cheese with chicken, etc. He had a shrimp (and sausage which he deleted!) sandwich with a tasty dressing. Note that it is a bit hard to find: look for Coyote Gulch - a group of art galleries with the restaurant tucked in one corner. Some nice art and some artists actually working inside. A very welcoming place.
