I have eaten at El Noa Noa 3 times, and each time have left with the same feeling of disappointment.The food just doesn't have a lot of flavor. The staff is friendly, we were seated promptly, but given the mediocre food it is doubtful I...More

They have a wonderful patio that even had music. I had the El Noa Noa pork special which was very tasty and the rest of my party had some great tacos with shrimp or pork. We will definitely go back.

Man, this place is iconic. The summer patio with the fountain and shaded tables is absolutely fantastic. The food is consistently great, and they have had the same staff for years, great people that know the menu and are attentive without being annoying.

We stumbled upon this restaurant in the Santa Fe arts district, and, while not always big fans of Mexican food, decided to give it a try. Staff were welcoming and helpful. We ate in the courtyard, which was charming. The menu is large and varied,...More
