“Excellent lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

We stopped at El Paraiso for lunch on our road trip after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We were very pleased with our food and experience. Very friendly and fast service. The home made salsa was excellent and they promptly brought us more. The food tasted fresh and was right portion for lunch and priced reasonable. There was a patio area which would have been nice if wasn't raining.

“Pleasantly surprised, yummy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

The food and service was great. The veggie fajitas had a nice assortment of vegetables. The avocado salad was made with quality lettuce and a generous amount of avocado slices! Our son really liked his beef taco dinner. To top it off we ordered the flaun!! If you like flaun this is a must try. A do over!

“Unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

After a long day on the water, this was a great place to unwind. Good drinks, great chips and salsa, excellent service and delicious meal. A little bit of Mexico in every bite. There location is better than before, and we will return!

“Off Night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Well-located and easy to find, Parasio is an inviting place. My family chose to sit outside on the patio, at a table spacious for the four of us. The tables were not jammed together like in many places with outdoor seating, much to our appreciation.

I guess, though, in terms of the food, we hit Parasio on an off night.

The menu looks great -- wide selection of traditional, nuevo, and if I recall correctly, an American dish or two. We gave it a good try--ordering tamales, enchiladas, fajitas--but found the food amateurishly seasoned and just not prepared quite as expected based on the other reviews. We're from Santa Fe and have a reasonably good palate for traditional, well-prepared Mexican fare, and this mised the mark by a bit.

Service was fast and pleasant, but like one of the other reviewers, we had several waitstaff and Iit left some gaps in service and left us feeling a little tossed about.

Given the relatively limited choices in this smaller town of Buena Vista, we'd give Parasio another chance, in hopes of hitting a stronger night.

“Nice lunch at E P July 10 2014”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

Recommend. Good food, nice people, attractive room. Came to town from camping, made this our main meal of day. Ordered about mid-price on menu, about $25 total with a beer or two, plus tip. They let us use their electricity and wifi to check email, etc. Would go back. Patio seating out back looked nice.
