“Spot on in Flagstaff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Criollo is a funky Latin-inspired restaurant in downtown Flagstaff. Featuring organic, locally-sourced foods and unique menu, it is a break away from the traditional Tex-Mex found everywhere in this region. Make sure you hit Criollo on your next visit to Flagstaff.

“Great place to eat in Flagstaff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a really nice little place downtown Flagstaff. We went on a Saturday morning, not crowded, very pleasant interior. Great service. It was the brunch menu and a little short on vegetarian options however the achiote mushroom wrap was outstanding! Spicy filling but so perfectly matched with the wrap and sauce it was fabulous. My husband had a different entree but loved it as well. I am looking forward to trying this place for dinner.

“Destination Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

This restaurant is best described as a Latin fusion restaurant. The food is locally grown, the menu selection is very good, the food quality is excellent. Presentation and staff are excellent. My wife and I both ordered the pork tenderloin which was excellent and is recommended. For desert we split the chili Venezuelan chocolate cake, a small but very very rich desert. We consider that Criollo is a destination restaurant well worth the drive. As a added bonus this restaurant is located in downtown Flagstaff with plenty of shops and other restaurants in walking distance in a pedestrian friendly environment.

“Innovative and Delicious Southwestern Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

OMG…who would have thought one would find a restaurant in Flagstaff that has successfully reinvented Southwestern cuisine!

Criollo has some of the most innovative (Fire Roasted Jalapeño & Bacon Nachos), tasty (Pork Belly Tacos) and mouthwatering (Relleno Vegetales) Southwestern cuisine I have ever found.

Everything we had was ‘Over The Top’ and ‘Out Of Bounds” (as Guy Ferrari would say) since the food at Criollo has rich complex flavors is well prepared food and served with creative plating.

If you are in the mood for something different in Southwestern cuisine, I can heartedly recommend Criollo.
