This was a disappointment from the time we arrived until the time we left. It was a relatively cool evening and there is no place to wait inside while waiting for a table to open up. No bar service while waiting. The staff seemed irritated that we were even there. Now to the food I ordered a Shrimp Chili Relleno with the 3 Cheese Sauce and my wife had Chicken Enchiladas. The Shrimp dish sounded great on the menu but really did not meet expectations when served. The shrimp were very small and the dish was VERY salty. The Chicken Enchiladas were so-so but definitely not worth going back for. This is not a place I would recommend our return to. Overpriced and underwhelmed would sum up my experience.

My husband & visit Eureka Springs often, & because there are so many great restaurants we're still trying out "new" ones. We'd heard good things about Casa Colina & finally ate there. We were very impressed. Great Mexican food...some unusual dishes. Tasty chips & salsa...& unbelievably yummy desserts. Several other couples were commenting about how great this restaurant was as they left. Our waitress was very friendly & helpful. I must rave about the outside dining experience, though......wow...lights, waterfall, heaters....this is one great place. It's now one of our favorites. I can't wait to return. Like many restaurants in Eureka Springs, they don't take credit cards, so bring cash. Surprisingly inexpensive.

It started off badly. They said they wouldn't take credit cards so I had to use their ATM and pay a $2 fee to the owner so I could get cash to pay for my meal. After ordering, I got served a can of Diet Pepsi. That meant no free drink refills. The food was VERY bland. Nobody in my party of 4 liked what they were served. As I was paying my bill, the waitress asked if I wanted change back. That is a huge mistake in my mind. A waitress should never ask if I want my change back. She should always give me change and let me decide if I want to leave a tip or not. We won't be back, and unless you like bland food and crappy service, you should avoid this restaurant too.

I cannot say enough good things about Casa Colina. I had made reservations for a party of 16 and each and every person in the party was blown away by the margaritas. the service and the food. All were equally superior. Our party had both regular margaritas and mango margaritas. I had both and if you have never had a mango margarita, I urge you to do so at Casa Colina and you will not be disappointed.
There is one important note I need to mention and that is the fact that the restaurant does not accept credit cards. They accept only AR checks or cash, so plan accordingly.
