My wife and I ate breakfast at La Plazuela at La Fonda and both had high marks for this restaurant. The restaurant is not only beautiful but the food was outstanding. Our server was nice and the food came fast. I don't know how they were able to serve us so promptly! I would come back here again simply to... More

The atmosphere was truly special. We were seated at a lovely u shaped table. The guacamole was prepared at the table and the margarita were just right especially after a long trek of hiking at Tent Rock's State Park.

We stopped in for a late lunch, and still had a 20-minute wait. Waiting area is very comfortable, with plush leather chairs (not all seating is such, but a good number of seating is). Once seated, the restaurant is open and airy, although quite noisy, especially with a couple of very loud toddlers whose parents couldn't seem to control them.... More

There are so many good food options but if you just simply want guacamole and fajitas or enchiladas as they are - without fusion - this is a good bet. The place is also really cute and inside the La Fonda hotel - also a gem. I liked this place because I was finally stuffed after my meal and that's... More

Delicious fajitas..maybe the best ever! And having guacamole prepared at your table where you choose the additions....delightful and scrumptious. We sat at a table for two in an open doorway to the hall....fun people watching, yet enjoying the bright atmosphere of the high ceilinged dining room. Interesting painted window panes all around.

Located in the middle of the ground floor of the La Fonda hotel, La Plazuela offers a traditional southwestern ambience for semi-casual dining within this mainstay hotel. In fact, La Plazuela strikes a rare-to-find compromise in upscale hotels - tasty food, generous serving, pleasant environment and moderate prices, at least for a hotel with La Fonda pedigree and location. I... More

This is a very nice and convenient restaurant in the heart of Santa Fe. We have had lunch and dinner at La Plazuela and have never been disappointed. Excellent staff, nice wine list, and a menu that has a wide variety of options. The only 'downside' is that it is very popular because of location so you should make a... More

On a recent visit to Santa Fe, we decided on lunch at La Plazuela. This turned out to be a great choice. We enjoyed the casual ambiance and were seated at a very nice table next to the fountain. Service was excellent - efficient, friendly and attentive. The gazpacho was refreshing and delicious. Chips and salsa were great; my wife... More
