“A MUST eat at when visiting the Riverwalk”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We LOVE this restaurant, from start to finish it was excellent. The service impeccable and the food is second to none. We loved that a wine steward helps in choosing wine from the extensive list. Choice of sparkling or plain water--love. We shared the cheese board starter and it was marvelous with 3 cheeses changing seasonally. The table across from us saw our and ordered the same =]. A Lime/Basil palette cleanser from the chef was perfect.
had the Duck entree and it was the best I've eaten--moist, flavorful. My husband had the Tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection--hailing from Montana, he's a little picky.
Save room for dessert and order the Chocolate Cake with Cherry Sorbet to share--YUMMO!
#1-- If you make reservations, which we recommend, ask for inside seating if in July -August and a window seat. Wonderful in the air conditioning over looking Riverwalk.
We WILL return!!

“Las Canarias”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I have been several times most of the time for Sunday Brunch - I love their food and the atmosphere. I particularly love the Hollandaise sauce.

“Breakfast is Beyond!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had two very disappointing experiences in restaurants on the Riverwalk so we weren't expecting much when we went looking for a good breakfast.

Service was excellent! Our waiter never let our coffee get cold! We all ordered off the menu but a breakfast buffet is also available. The Malted Waffle was simply amazing. It was served with carmelized pecans, strawberries, cream and syrup on the side. The Huevos Rancheros were not your typical and the were AWESOME! It was a unique twist on an old tradition which left me pleased and full!

It was a wonderful dining experience and the next time I have to be in San Antonio, I will make a point to go have breakfast at Las Canarias!

This restaurant has a wonderful view overlooking the Riverwalk. I had the duck which was delicious. For desert, Tres Leches Cheesecake.So incredibly good! This place gets high marks for service, ambience, food and drink. But of course, when you get the bill, you see why. It is pricey, as is most dining options on the Riverwalk.
