Capitol Reef National Park Restaurants



Cafe Diablo

Cafe Diablo Review

This restaurant is one of the state's best. White plaster walls are a perfect setting for the local art on display in the intimate dining room. Innovative Southwestern entrées include marinated Utah lamb, and beef tenderloin medallions topped with roasted-shallot butter. The rattlesnake cakes, made with free-range desert rattler and served with ancho-rosemary aioli, are delicious and a steadfast menu item. Try the pastries and ice cream made with fruits picked at nearby Fruita.
