I like going here mid-afternoon because it's quiet and calm; the wine list is pretty good. The food is nothing to write home about but I am giving it 4 stars for atmosphere and "the college try". It's fairly affordable although for the price you...More

This restaurant has a great "neighborhood" feel to it. It's located about twenty minutes outside Santa Fe proper, so draws primarily local clientele from the Eldorado area. Live solo jazz guitar music on a Monday night added to a relaxed ambiance. La Plancha's owners are...More
