We had a lovely lunch on the outside balcony overlooking the square. In particular, the seasoned beef in the steak tacos and steak fajitas was delicious! The traditional calabacitas veggie mix in the fajitas was a nice surprise, with zucchini and yellow squash added to the tomatoes, peppers and onion. Great view, outstanding meal - complimented by one of the finest margaritas in NM!

We went to get a drink and we had the most amazing motitos. I had the strawberry motito and my husband had the regular one. Good advice too.!

The waitstaff was awesome. The food was great. It was a bit pricey but the service and the food was well worth every dime.

Nice 2nd-story spot in The Plaza (balcony is great, if you get find a table.) We had a group of five, so we could only get a table inside, which was a spacious booth. All the food was good. The server was friendly and helpful, but would disappear for long periods, leaving us with empty beverage glasses, and the lack of a check when we were ready to leave. Good selection of local and regional brews. The burger was excellent, I was told by one of our group. Really more 3.5 stars, but I enjoyed myself, so I'm rounding up rather than down.

David, our bartender, was awesome! He was attentive and engaged in conversation with us. We stopped for a margarita after our walk on Canyon Road and actually returned later for dinner. David was still there, his relief bartender called in sick and he was still smiling after working his full shift. What a loyal associate!
