“I can't wait to return to this place called "Xetava".”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2009

Our table was ready upon arrival, no waiting. The owner (Greg) Greeted us and was able to recommend a wonderfull wine which was enjoyed with an appetizer of fresh olive tapenade. The food was unique but familiar, we could not help but to share meals amongst ourselves. Fresh prawns, chicken,feta and local vegetables. Some of the herbs were picked before our eyes. Enjoying the setting of the sun on the outdoor patio was absolutely refreshing. I can not wait to return.

“Warm, Comforting, Inviting...worth the drive in oh so many ways!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2009

Filling a void in an otherwise somber culinary wasteland, Xetava Gardens and it's proprietors, Greg & Rachel, offer delicious food and drink smack in the middle of some of the most spectacular scenery in Southern Utah. The menu changes seasonally, they support organic farming & products, they have a liquor license, and cater to any special dietary requests if it is within their power...and it frequently is....breakfast and lunch are served all day every day up until 4:00 PM and dinner is served on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, (with low key, live music)....for now....those of us who go regularly are looking forward to an extension of those hours! Dining indoors or out, it's a comfortable relaxed atmosphere where you're treated as if you've been invited into their home.....the proprietors are usually always there which is a must in the restaurant trade, and have a hands on approach in training the staff.......not to say there isn't the occasional slip up, but when there is and it's brought to their attention, they do everything in their power to make it right......customer service is alive and well at Xetava Gardens Cafe!!!

“Great food in a friendly and absolutely gorgeous setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2009

Xetava is very accommodating. They are always friendly and welcoming. We have a large bicycling group that comes in almost every Sunday. They will accept emails of orders the night before so we don't have to wait forever to get our food for such a large group. The food is delicious and the view and areas are absolutely gorgeous! Very unique place for the southern utah area! The live entertainment on the weekends is wonderful also.
