We stopped here for lunch as there was almost no other option to eat. We told the waitress that we had an issue with onions and that is causes stomach distress. (FODMAP offender for those who understand) and they made fresh pico de gallo avacado...More

Visiting El Dorado area and found this little gem. Sunday brunch was plentiful, wide selection of brunch items. Nice layout and eggs made to order. Friendly people and very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. Well worth the short drive.

La Plancha is well-known to residents of Santa fe's semi-rural Eldorado suburb, but is worth wider recognition.

We live out in Eldorado, so we do eat at this restaurant a couple of times a month. Recently, I had the stuffed poblano chile for lunch and it was excellent. The poblano sauce was very very good. And just today I had the omlette...More

We had an excellent meal and excellent service at La Plancha when traveling through Santa Fe on our fall vacation. I made the terrible mistake of leaving a favorite cap in the booth and didn't discover my mistake until 1 hour down the road. I...More

Good for sunday or anyday brunch/lunch We loved it and found the food very good. Dont expect American Major Hotel food, but instead find home-made mexican dishes. The place is ideal for a pitstop along I-25, between Las... More
