This was our second time for dinner here and must say it was better last year. While the service was very prompt and friendly, the food was definitely not as tasty as before. They also lacked any variety of wines or beer on tap. Surely we may try a different Mexican restaurant while in Sedona next year. There must be plenty to choose from..

Decided to try this place while shopping at Tlaquepaque. Got seated outside during luch. Great sauce and chips to start. After a morning of hiking we both had ice tea that was very good, not watered down, with plenty of refills. (that is a way you can tell good service when they keep checking on you and keep your glasses filled) Both of our lunch selections were very good. Our server (did not get his name) was very nice and check on us often. Others were also very nice. Will go back again when in Sedona.

I cannot believe the prices they ask at this restaurant. Granted, the ambiance is good and they are in Tlaquepaque Village, but I can't believe they want $7 for an ala cart fish taco! The service was good, just won't go back due to the rip-off price.

Never knew Mexican food could be so ... dare I say it? Bland. (I should know). Pricey, too. Five in our party and the bill was $98 w/tip (and no alcoholic drinks). Watress was disinterested ... almost rude.
Sedona has better offerings.

Stopped here for an early pre-Oscars dinner.

Very nice, warm and cozy atmosphere; perfect after a cold day on the trails.

Tried the red sauce Navaho pizza with muchaca beef. Yum. She had shrimp enchiladas...even more yum!

This restaurant is in Tlaquepaque...a very picturesque collection of shops and restaurants just off of 179. A must-do stop while in Sedona.
