The restaurant has charm, a good menu and the food quality was good BUT our food was barely warm and the service was erratic. Small changes could have bumped this to an easy four star but it was disappointing.

No better place for Brunch on Mother's Day! They have a wonderful menu. We enjoyed crepes and Eggs Hollandaise with pastries! Good coffee and excellent service. Prices were very reasonable.

We have eaten at Chez Manou about 5 times on our annual visit to Santa Fe. Every visit was excellent except the last one. The service has gone downhill. It seems to be a group of teenagers, not knowing what is expected of a waiter....More

Who would guess that you'd find a place in Santa Fe with authentic French food at reasonable prices, great service, and even a cellist? I had an extremely tender pork couchon, that was served with scalloped potatoes and delicious sautéed vegetables. My husband had a...More

Do they serve wines or is it a BYO? Thanks.

The wine list is limited but well selected.

We have booked a 3 bedroom Ocean Villa for three adults and two small children. I assumed the ground floor unit would be best (as close to the end as possible) for easy access to the outside. However, I have read that the views form the two upper floors are much better. I would like views but easy access to the outside. I might have to choose between the two. Does anyone have insight into staying on the ground floor (with 2 small children and an artist with equipment to be carried in order to paint outside)?

This is a restaurant in Santa Fe, not near the ocean and not a hotel.
