We stayed at the hotel Santa Fe and though most nights we went out for dinner we were never disappointed with the food at the Hotel Santa Fe Restaurant. The shrimp tacos as an apetizer can really suffice for an entree. Plus the views of the beach and sunsets are spectacular. Simple fare but very pleasant.

Food was good and service was excellent! It was a little pricey but it was worth it. I got the cilantro soup and loved it, def try it! I would recommend this place for sure. Live music on Fridays.

Hotel spot on if you want to splash out a bit. Restaurant is brilliant for dinner. Breakfast not as good. If veggies it is spot on and the seafood couldn't be better but you could get just as good cheaper elsewhere but you pay for the ambiance. I prefer being on the beach though

The entire menu rocks! From the freshest fruits for breakfast, to dinner entrees to drinks. Just a most amazing experience.

This menu is half seafood and half vegetarian and vegan. They have tofu, seitan and tempeh dishes, also Mediterranean dishes, salads, soups and so on. The waiters have a solid understanding of what the concept "vegan" is, so you can be sure that you will have your dietary needs properly met. What I ordered was absolutely excellent. I had the...

This is a big hotel just off the beach on the main street. It should have been a wonderful experience but the food was mediocre and the staff not attentive at all.

This place is where to go if you want mediocre food in an American environment for inflated prices. The taste was too average for too high prices. Convenient location off Zicatela, and fancy fine dining, though.

I love that you are able to order half a meal or share an order as the portions are quite large. This is where the music of the Clones song "Beer for Breakfast" originated. What beautiful vistas!

We went for lunch. The setting is lovely, overlooking the sea. The entry is clean, neat, typically Mexican decor, and beautiful. The service was exemplary. We ate lightly but it was delicious. We all started with a soup...one tortilla soup; three gazpachos. Excellent, and nice portions. We then had avocado stuffed with shrimp...each shared one order for two, and that... More

We stayed at the hotel for the month of February and went to a considerable number of restaurants on or near Zacaria beach. That said, you just can't beat the restaurant at the Hotel Santa Fe. It's breathtakingly beautiful, comfortable, gorgeous view of the beach, the best menu and food we had, bar none, and we went to 12 top... More
