My wife and I stayed at the Ojo Caliente resort for 4 nights so at at the restaurant several times including breakfast and dinner. The place is pricey as they have a captive audience, but the food is good and in abundance. We figured out we had to order about half the food as normal to be totally satisfied. We... More

The root vegetable salad grown on site was so delicious and big enough to be a meal on its own. My husband had a delicious Caesar with anchovies added.. dinner was a delicious NY strip and I had the rainbow trout, both were wonderful. Service was great, atmosphere lovely.

The food is very good and they are making quite an effort to go from farm to table. Sometimes the service can be a little slow when it gets crowded but overall good service.

The restaurant attached to the resort. The food is very fresh and the staff is friendly. I've enjoyed the 10+ meals that I've had here. My only complaint is that the menu is small.

Description
Just north of Santa Fe is Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs' secluded sanctuary. Deemed sacred by Native Americans of Northern New Mexico, our legendary waters have been soothing body, mind and spirit naturally for centuries. The Artesian Restaurant provides a casual dining experience and charming atmosphere. Our chef blends local flavors with global cuisine. Creative dishes include Green Chile Crusted Salmon, homemade pasta, and Ribeye. Lighter fare is available in the Wine Bar & Lounge.
We suggest that you make reservations for spa treatments, private outdoor pools and dinner before you arrive.
Ojo is the only hot springs in the world with 4 unique, sulphur-free mineral waters. The resort is historic, yet modern and fresh with eclectic charm in a relaxed and tranquil environment. The full-service spa offers a wide array of restorative treatments including nurturing massage and hydrating face and body treatments. Don't miss a soak in a private outdoor pool by fire at night or in the seasonal, detoxifying mud pool. We offer an unpretentious and uncomplicated atmosphere with a variety of lodging accommodations, including enchanting suites, charming cottages, the historic hotel and private homes. All lodging includes access to all mineral pools every day of your visit. Yoga classes are offered 7 days a week. Ojo is nestled in a valley on 1,100 acres and is adjacent to thousands of acres of hiking and mountain biking trails.
