“Situated in Estancia Resort and Spa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The filet mignon steak dinner was awesome, smallish in size, but good. The burger was delicious for lunch. Great flavor in their beef. Halibut was just ok, a little dry on the outside, but the corn sauce helped that. Desserts disappointed us... nothing special.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Had a light lunch of beet salad and fish tacos. Both were excellent with a great value. Service was average, but the view and food was worth it.

“Good Food & Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Nice little restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Two patios, one with a fireplace, and the other with portable heatlamps. Come dressed casual or fancy, restaurant setting accomodates both. Must try the chocolate pudding cake!
