With its location on the Plaza, the restaurant is usually busy. We have eaten here a number of times and everything we've tried was good.

The wife and I had dinner here the night of our arrival which was alright. Service was excellent, the meal good, but expensive, but I have found everything in Santa Fe expensive. I guess it has to be since all they are selling is jewelry,...More

Here with family and we were seated quickly for a reservation at 7.30pm. The staff are wonderful, polite, friendly and helpful. The food is very good - a fusion of neo-Mexican and America. The portions sizes are typical for the area. The steak was excellent,...More

We have been dining at La Plazuela now over the past twenty years. Their chile rellenos never disappoint. The setting is quite beautiful and service is generally good. A great spot for lunch or romantic dinner near the fountain!

For travelers seeking a traditional Mexican feast and Margarita in Santa Fe, there is none better than a dinner at La Fonda. Sunday brunch is also excellent. It may not be outstanding forever, but it has not disappointed me during the last 50 years.

This is the oldest hotel in Santa Fe. We did not stay there (we traveled up fro ABQ) but enjoyed drinks at the Bell Tower (top floor view to die for!) and dinner at La Fonda.
