We went for breakfast and my husband enjoyed a Mexican dish with an egg on top of a tortilla with ranchero sauce and I had an omelet. Nice food, nice service and great view.

I ate at Banderas while staying at the Renaissance Austin hotel. It is conveniently located just off the lobby of the hotel. The menu is limited and unadventurous. My meal was fine and service was good.
