We only stopped in for a light lunch but the food was incredibly fresh and tasty. The quantities were large enough to split and we shared a bowl of tomato soup and a salad along with fresh squeezed lemonade. Prices are extremely reasonable.

Food was good as was service. The only thing I have a problem with and I have this problem with almost every restaurant in this village is the flies.

We visited Fe for dinner while walking through San Marcos one night. The restaurant owner, who is from London, greeted us and helped put together a table large enough to fit our group. We enjoyed some friendly banter with him before placing our drink and dinner orders.

The restaurant has the feel of an open-air cafe. There is rather limited seating, but easily accommodated everyone who was in the restaurant while we were there (perhaps 16 people).

The food was brought out as each plate was completed instead of as a complete service. I assume this is the case because of a very small cooking staff, which sometimes included the owner who also waited tables with his daughter.

Our group rated their meals anywhere from ok to good, depending upon what was ordered. The steak stroganoff was just ok, a bit bland and short on sauce to cover the large amount of noodles (the dish is usually served with rice, but I requested pasta instead). The pasta with salmon, capers, olives in creme sauce was rated ok to good. Salads were so-so, as the Caesar salad had too much garlic, but the homemade croutons were really tasty. The hamburgers and the blue-cheese steak were both rated as great by all who had them.

The main problem with our visit is that two of the orders were completely forgotten and we had to put in the order a second time after everyone else on the table had their food delivered.

Since there are a very limited number of restaurants in San Marcos, I would go back to Fe for another meal. The price was reasonable, the food was good on the whole, and we really enjoyed conversing with the owner.

Service is always slow, often forgetful. The menu is extensive, but not everything is worth it. Considering the portions the prices are a bit high in comparison to other restaurants in the area.

Not the best. Not the worst. But definitely too expensive.
