We went here for dinner this week. Very nice family owned restaurant that’s nicely decorated. I had a chili rellano which was good but not the best I’ve had. Next time we go I’ll pay more attention to what the server recommends. My wife had...More

Try the tortilla soup - it's fabulous! The service and food at Contessa's is always good. We have tried several of the entrees and nothing has missed the mark. Friendly people, great outdoor dining, and live music some evening make for a very enjoyable evening.

My wife brought me here for my birthday lunch. The red chili chimichanga was excellent and big. This is a moderately priced Mexican restaurant but has great atmosphere and friendly service.

Four of us had dinner here on a weekend stay in Bisbee. The food was good, but we all agreed it was sort of average. Another indicator was several empty tables on a Saturday night. The service was good, and they have outside tables.
