we were disappointed in the food. Don't know what we were expecting but it was too highly priced for what we tried.

Mexican food is actually very hard to find in Albuquerque. Many folks here consider New Mexican food as Mexican food and have no idea that there is a difference. To my knowledge, this is the only restaurant in town that serves Huitlacoche, a true gourmet...More
