On our recent group bicycling trip we finally found Tohono Chul Gardens and Bistro. Breakfast in the morning is very special, try to get there early enough to sit out on the patio in the garden. Then take the tour of the gardens (a small charge), a very nice, quite and well kept gardens. Highly recommended

Very relaxing walk. Great to see some of the plants and very active bird life. Enjoyable. The setting of the restaurant looked lovely although we did not dine there. Menu looked reasonable.

What a spectacular place for an outdoor wedding! Tastefully handled in every way. The food was served outdoors on the beautifully lighted patio in the form of three food station venues and all were delicious. Service great & great atmosphere

I am feeling like I missed something. For 8 / person it was not worth it. Lots of dead gardens and not much walking. The desert museum would be more worth the money. Maybe it will be prettier after something blooms. Will give it another try next month.
