Fodor's Review

In this crossover-cuisine town, owner David Salazar sums up his food in one word: "Spanish." Order a classic entrée like paella or make a meal from the nearly 30 different tapas—from tiny fried squid to wild mushrooms. Dining is indoors and out. Touted as the oldest continuously operated restaurant in Santa Fe, El Farol (built in 1835) has a relaxed ambience, a unique blend of the Western frontier and contemporary Santa Fe. People push back the chairs and start dancing

at around 9:30. The restaurant books live entertainment seven nights a week, from blues and Latin to rock, and there's a festive flamenco performance on Wednesday. End a long day of sightseeing by grabbing a table on the porch in the late afternoon and sipping a refreshing margaritas.
