It didn't seem as special as we remembered it to be. The atmosphere is still excellent. My food was good, but not quite as good as I remembered it being. Maybe that was me. I don't know. It is still and good place to eat. It just didn't seem as special as I remembered it. We will give it another... More

The entrance is unassuming but once you enter the main dining room you will know you are in for a treat. The fajitas were delicious and the other five people all loved their dishes too. Service was attentive and prices were reasonable.

As you walk through the church/residence/now restaurant, you don't expect the pleasant surprise of a quaint courtyard. The history of the building multiples the ambiance. Food showed an innovative culinary staff - not just a cook. Upbeat wait staff tops off the positive doing experience. This place is a definite must.

The restaurant is very quaint, with lots of small rooms neatly decorated. I ordered the Green chile Chicken soup. It was delicious, probably the best I've ever had. The tortillas were also fabulous. If you're in Old Town, I highly recommend this place.

The service was good, and the atmosphere fun. What we liked most about the meal was the addition of a vegetable to our tamale plates. My husband had the calabacitas (squash and corn) and I had the quelites (spinach). Both were very good. Then handmade tamales were incredibly good. We'd go back in a flash if we didn't live several... More

The food here is Southwestern, New Mexican and is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxing and quite comfortable. Service is very good and the drinks are top notch. The Margareta's are "to die for"!

Great Mexican food and large portions. Interesting building and history. It's much bigger than it looks at first. There's one large room in the rear with a fireplace that looked really nice. We ate up towards the front and ambiance was great.

Thank MAnderson_10
