“Better view than food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The food was not bad. The view is spectacular. It was nice to watch the shadows creep across the Valley as we ate and talked about the day we had exploring the Valley. I had the pozole; liked the taste but did not care for the texture of the hominy. Blue flat bread was great, though.

“Beautiful View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The soup & salad bar & Indian fried bread were good. We didn't enjoy our main courses very much but the main thing is the view.

“Beautiful Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

After an afternoon tour of Monument Valley, we had a wonderful dinner at The View Restaurant. We tried the Native American posole and stew with blue corn fry bread which was excellent. The wait staff and hostess were very attentive. The good food with the spectacular sunset views made it a beautiful dining experience.

“Navajo food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had decided on steaks but got talked into some local food. Being game, we ordered chicken - strange tasting. I would recommend order what you know. Breakfast buffet was terrific. My mom tried the navajo tea. It was not tasty -- when speaking to a native, the woman was horrified that mom drank it. She said people just pick stuff along the road and dessert and who knows what animal did what to it. So, don't drink the tea :-) The views are wonderful and it's well worth a visit!
