I had a coupon for a free breakfast thanks to a terrible experience at the Metate Room the night before. Not wanting to repeat that experience there I used the coupon at the cafeteria. It was just about empty and the cook stuggled to make an omelet. It was so bad he was going to throw it out but I... More

My husband loved the Navaho Taco and I was pleased just to have some iced tea and yoghurt. The views are what make this place special, I'm sure you can see several states from this well-placed cafeteria.

Slightly disorganized staff was cheerful even at the end of season, and food better than we expected. It's not an imaginative menu but a tasty one nonetheless.

Aramark runs this facility in Mesa Verde. It is located approximately 16 miles inside the park boundary. It serves buffet-style breakfast and lunch with a southwestern flair. Views from the windows are impressive at sunrise.

if you are staying at the Far View lodge, this is your option for a nice, sit-down dinner. food was very good, though service was uneven. We had breakfast and dinner here.

After a disappointing dinner that the lodge restaurant we decided to give the cafeteria a try instead. It's good food for what you pay inside the park, but don't expect anything fancy, this is a sandwich / wraps / flatbread type place. It does have a nice view and the staff was very pleasant.

After our tour in Mesa Verde Mational Park, we stopped for lunch at Far View Terrace Restaurant. It is cafeteria style, and lines can be long when tour busses arrive. The dining room is large and bright with windows with great views. My husband had a flatbread pizza which he enjoyed. My fresh fruit cup was delicious. We had a... More

Unfortunately we did not have reservations despite staying at the FArView Lodge. We ended up with a late dinner but we enjoyed cocktails in the upstairs bar. The restaurant was very pretty with paramatic views of the mountains below.

We enjoyed our meal at Far View Terrace Restaurant but the scenery was just as wonderful as the meal. Expansive views from the open air terrace and from the restaurant windows were memorable. I got the stuffed portabella mushroom dish and it was exquisite! My husband got the chicken entree and it was good also. We got a creme brulee... More

Restaurant was nice inside and had a great view. My wife has a lot of food allergies and the chef came over to our table to ask what her food allergies were. Chef and staff were very helpful. We both ordered pan fried trout. My dinner was OK but my wife ordered fingerling potatoes that were burnt and the asparagus... More
