The front desk of our hotel (Saddle Inn) recommended us this restaurant and we dont't regret it.
From the outside you can't imagine what it is inside. You have the choice between the upper level - more cafetaria style - and the dinner room downstairs, with large windows unto a nice pond full of ducks and geese.
We had a table by the window and could enjoy sunset over the pond.
For our last evening in the Rockies we first ordered a Californian champagne, which was served in two small bottles (just like in an airplane). Strange!
The ceviche with salmon and a white fish was excellent. Afterwards my wife took a local trout with wild rice, and I got a perfectly grilled (pink inside) piece of Ahi-Tuna with wild rice.
Fish was of good quality, but not really extraordinary.
We paid 85 $ for two (we decided to have coffe and tea after dinner in the Stanley Hotel: we would definitely recommend this to everyone)

We ate upstairs, in the cafe, instead of in the dining room, because we are, well, cheap. It was perfectly fine. We had a BLT, the hot roast beef sandwich, kid's chicken tenders, an alpine burger and a couple of beers. Our server was brand new and made a few mistakes, but nothing serious. This was the place we figured we would go back to if we ran out of reasonable choices. Food prices appear to be pretty much the same throughout Estes Park (every entree is 9.95 and every beer is 3.50), so it was nice to find a less expensive burger and a kid's meal that was big enough for a 12 year old.

Decent. Nothing to rave about.

Every time we visit Estes Park, we make sure to go to the Sunday Champagne Brunch at the Other Side. The food is wondeful including made to order omelets. This is a tradition for us and we have never been disappointed with this wonderful brunch. There is a beautiful view of a lake and the mountains from this downstairs dining room. Our wait staff has always been wonderful. We have alse eaten upstairs in the casual restaurant too and had a great meal there too. We will always include the Other Side in any visit to Estes Park.
