The reason to go there is for the great Santa Fe atmosphere, not for the food, and definitely not for the service. I do like one thing on their dinner menu- the beef fajitas.The table side guacamole is good too. And for breakfast I like...More

The food here is yummy. The chili relleno is superb and fresh! Staff is friendly and efficient. Lovely courtyard setting with skylight highlighting the interior fountain. A very nice meal and delicious.

Beautiful dining room. Delicious, beautifully presented New Mexican food. Service was generally attentive, but slowed toward end of meal. Prices were reasonable for the setting and the quality of ingredients. Our children were well accommodated with an extensive kids' menu that offered healthy options.

We had an excellent meal at La Plazuela on our last night at La Fonda. The food was excellent and the service from Bryan was outstanding. They also accommodated our stroller by setting us at a table where it would not be in the way.
