We ate hear because we had heard that they had some good Mexican food. It was just as good as they said We had a pitcher of Margaritas and they were Great! The tamales were also Great!

I have eaten at El Noa Noa 3 times, and each time have left with the same feeling of disappointment.The food just doesn't have a lot of flavor. The staff is friendly, we were seated promptly, but given the mediocre food it is doubtful I will return.

They have a wonderful patio that even had music. I had the El Noa Noa pork special which was very tasty and the rest of my party had some great tacos with shrimp or pork. We will definitely go back.

We were looking for an organic Mexican restaurant. This is advertised so....it isn't at all ....and had only a few organic options before. I was surprised. Other than that, the service was good, charming patio seating , food was good typical Mexican fare. Ceviche was fresh and good. I asked for Verde Salsa in addition to the tomato salsa and... More

We decide to take a departure from our favorite Mexican restaurant and mix it up a bit. Might find a new favorite closer to home. Nope, while we were quite impressed with the outdoor seating, beautiful little court yard, the service was horrible. After dealing with three different members of the wait staff we were confused as to who our... More

Very enjoyable for evening meal, great service. The food looks like the pictures and tastes great. Chili rellenos are always good. Been going here since 1982.

The menu had the traditional Mexican fare and beverages. Our food was really very, very good. The portion sizes were perfect and the prices were standard. What knocked our experience down a notch or 2 was the slow service. Slow to take our order, slow to follow up with us, and slow to give us the check. Granted this was... More

We stumbled across El Noa Noa while we were checking out galleries on Sante Fe. As a Texan, in pretty picky on Mexican food but this restaurant was good. Chips and salsa were good although you had to pay for them, and in most Texas restaurants that is free. We had a party of 9 and everyone loved their dish.... More

Man, this place is iconic. The summer patio with the fountain and shaded tables is absolutely fantastic. The food is consistently great, and they have had the same staff for years, great people that know the menu and are attentive without being annoying.

We stumbled upon this restaurant in the Santa Fe arts district, and, while not always big fans of Mexican food, decided to give it a try. Staff were welcoming and helpful. We ate in the courtyard, which was charming. The menu is large and varied, and a waiter's suggestion to try a spicy shrimp dish worked out perfectly. The guacamole... More
