Fourth visit and as good as always. Been coming since 1989 and it is the high light of a visit to Santa Fe.

Had lunch at this restaurant last week. The chili rellenos were fantastic. The atmosphere was pleasantly decorated with fresh air coming in from the patio. I have eaten here several times over the years and it has always been good.

We stopped in on Sunday afternoon without reservations, were able to sit in the bar area and shared a fajita quesadilla, which was delicious. Fast service, as we were in the bar, food was great and we want to go back for a meal in the dining room!

We had done a road trip and came to Rancho de Chimayo Restaurante, part of a magical place to stay. I was intrigued by the wonderful quiet. There are no electronics visible except for illumination of rooms and halls. You forget how peaceful life is without the interruption of residual noise from electronic devices like TV's cell phones, head sets..The... More

The Rancho de Chimayo Restaurante has been a favorite of ours for years now. We love the drive from Santa Fe to Chimayo and enjoy the ambiance and food very much. The gift shop is a nice place to pick up food-related gifts for family and friends and their cookbook is a nice, inspirational way to bring a bit of... More

With high recommendations and after a disappointing stop in Taos, we visited Chimayo and this wonderful restaurant. Stuffed Sopaipillas for lunch...huge and wonderful, and extra Sopaipillas with honey (the best sopaipillas of the trip). Friendly and fast service, and expect a wait. Don't miss the church and sanctuario just down the street.

Has a well deserved reputation throughout the State. This truly is delicious traditional New Mexico cuisine. Food is great and so is the staff.

I've eaten at this restaurant on several occasions over the years and have fond memories of meals shared with friends and family on the terraced patio and inside the historic building. Unfortunately on my last two visits (this year and last) I found the quality of the food and service to be lacking, particularly the sense of hospitality, the staff... More

Stopped in while shopping in Chimayo. Was on a holiday at 2 pm and was crowded, but only had to wait ten minutes. Service was excellent and food as always was very good.

I am so surprised at the couple of negative reviews about this fantastic restaurant! True, this restaurant is so popular that there is always a wait of at least half an hour, however, they have a very quaint lounge/bar area to enjoy one of their yummy margaritas and appetizers while you wait. By the time we got out margaritas and... More
