“Best restaurant in the heart of old town by far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2010

Great food, service and atmosphere (with a wonderful guitarist for Sunday brunch). Gets busy, though, so prepare to wait for weekend dinner or make a reservation.

“La Creme Michel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2009

This is the french place you want, short of the all-out expensive perfection-quest. For the same quality the cost is almost half of the fancy Fr place. My aunt, who served in the OSS in Paris during WWII, said it was closest to the real thing in all Albuquerque.

“Where we take all our out of town guests”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2009

This is one of our very favorite places to eat in Albuquerque. We have eaten here probably 15 times and we have never been disappointed. Food is exceptionally good and very reasonably priced. Wait staff is classy and knowledgeable but not too stuffy to have some fun. Ask for their suggestions for what wine or beer to have with dinner. Order form the whiteboard. Portion sizes are just right. The restaurant is located in an old, charming compound of adobes (likely a family compound from the 1700 or 1800s). The place is small and intimate. If going in the winter, ask for a table in the back room, as the front room can be drafty with the door opening.
