Diamond Belle is a place that brings the 1880's back to life. Everything about this place screams history. From the outfits the employees wear to the finishes on the walls is 1880. The restaurant was the old bar in the Strater Hotel. They used to allow smoking which was a turn off, but now - smoke free. I go in for a drink at the bar and usually get an appetizer. My wife and I go there for sandwiches or hamburgers. We have never been disappointed. You will also see locals, who make this place even more fun. At times the food delivery is slow, but this gives more time to enjoy the atmosphere. Everyone has to remember, this is Durango, not a big city with big city speed. Slow down and enjoy SW Colorado and the history of the area.
