Fodor's Review

Built in the early 1700s, this structure is among the oldest in New Mexico. Renovations have preserved the original adobe bricks to ensure that this spacious eatery remains as authentic as its menu, which features family recipes spanning four generations—with fresh, local ingredients and spirits employed to satiate streams of hungry tourists and locals. Request the courtyard for alfresco dining amid trellises of sweet grapes and flowers, and where a classical and flamenco guitarist often performs. Buttery guacamole, with just a bit of bite, is the perfect appetizer to prep one's palate for tender carne asada, redolent and sumptuously spiced. Try the house specialty, chiles rellenos stuffed with beef and cheese, or a portobello-and-bell-pepper fajita. Traditional desserts and hearty breakfast choices are also offered.

Reasonable price, good food, welcoming server

The place was busy and we were doubtful about getting in on a Friday night without reservations. However within 20 minutes our party of 6 was seated. The restaurant is far larger than it appears from outside. The place was bustling and, with all the tile floors and walls you would expect it to be noisy. Somehow our little corner spot was quiet and we could hear one another just fine. Our server was prompt and very welcoming to this party of Canadians.

Chips and salsa (complimentary) arrived promptly and we added a guacamole appetiser for 1 to supplement -- and that was plenty for us. Everyone was pleased with their dinners and there was quite a variety amongst us from the extensive menu offered. The servings are large; two of our party decided to share a main course which was wise decision. The rest of us couldn't finish! The price was most reasonable. I would be pleased to visit again should I be in Albuquerque.
