AWESOME food and service. Was recommended by the manager of our hotel when asked about locally owned restaurants nearby.

The guacamole is to die for!! Don't miss it!

We ate at Café Castro on our last night in Santa Fe, if it had been the first night we would have probably gone again. There was great food, generous portions, and good service. This is true authentic Mexican food with great chilies and beer!

My wife and I went to the Castro because it was conveniently located and inexpensive. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the wonderful, friendly service. We are Anglos from Philadelphia and not used to Mexican food, but our fajitas were terrific. The portions were generous and tasted wonderful. Our waiter was helpful in answering our questions about the menu, and very attentive to us. The restaurant is nicely decorated and their beer selection looked great (I regretted that I was driving and couldn't drink up!) As we dined, the place filled up and seemed to be very popular with local people. Good food, generous portions, good service, nice people, good prices-- what's not to like!

Lunch was divine. The margaritas are made with agave wine instead of tequila. Lovely flavor. Could have drunk a pitcher of them. Food is completely non pretentious, homemade chilis both red and green. Prices are beyond reasonable. A great local place to eat!

We were spending time with a friend from Santa Fe and decided to have authentic Mexican cuisine. The sosapillas were great, especially with honey. For dessert the flan was also great. I highly recommend this place for anyone in the area.
