If you want beautiful views and red rock surroundings while you eat high-end food, then come to Xetava Gardens Cafe. The food is freshly made and delicious! The restaurant owners are very friendly and helpful. The weekend specials are to die for!

Fantastic surroundings with a great view to the red mountains from the terrace. Several tempting courses on the menu, including several vegetarian. I had the beet salad and the hummus plate, which were both great. Probably the best restaurant in this area.

Stayed a wonderful week in a home exchange at Kayenta, which was highlighted by a couple of visits to the Xetava Gardens Cafe (once for lunch, once for afternoon drinks, and once for dinner). Over all, our experience was very good to excellent topped off by a superb house-made Sangria. We were particularly delighted with their grilled brussel sprouts accompanied... More

We dropped in here while touring around St George. What a great find. This restaurant is in a little arts center outside of St George. All of the building are built in the southwest pueblo style, very low profile and very inviting. It was a hot day so we ordered light lunches. My wife had the house salad, which was... More

A wonderful find while we were on vacation and staying in Ivins just outside St. George Utah. The menu was interesting and the staff was very pleasant. The scenery is amazing and we were fortunate to have been able to sit outside. The food was delicious, we had the fish in a coconut Thai sauce which was excellent. I highly... More

This restaurant serves the Kayenta community (hence the name) and has great views of the beautiful red rock mountains. Besides locals, there are typically many tourists that drop by for a good meal. The restaurant is very casual, but has a very varied menu, that includes your non-typical dishes. You can sit inside or in the patio and enjoy the... More

We've eaten here about 3 times, and really enjoy the restaurant. My wife and I consider ourselves to be foodies, I was a chef years ago, and most people we cook for love our food. With that being said, we are fairly picky when it comes to good food. Xetava Garden Cafe, is a great restaurant. We've never went away... More

We always enjoy our breakfasts or lunch here. Great salads, sandwiches etc. I don't recall anything we've eaten there that wasn't a good choice. Some of the best tea drinks around as well! Note that this will not be a choice for a tight budget!
