SIMPLE INGREDIENTS. HONEST COOKING. UNPARALLELED AMBIANCE. At El Nido we present exceptional ingredients from sources we know and trust. Our menu follows classic cooking with intelligent innovation. Wood-fired pizza, steaks and seafood cooked on the Argentine grill along with homemade pastas are the basis for our food. Our seasonal craft cocktails and Sommelier procured wine list compliment our diverse selections.
With many options we are sure you will find amazing ambiance in this historic building. You can enjoy the relaxed vibe of the Zozobra Bar or dine al fresco on our beautiful covered patio during the temperate Santa Fe summers. In the colder months you can keep warm and enjoy one of three fireplaces in our dining rooms, or dine at our Chef's Counter and view our open flame grilling. Something for everyone. We hope to see you soon, come relax and enjoy the best hospitality and ambiance in Tesuque!

    Our waiter Miguel was excellent, being attentive but not overbearing, friendly and welcoming. We had tempura fried squash blossoms (amazing!), the roasted poblano pepper (so flavorful), the Vico pizza (which is honestly the best pizza we’ve had!), and a side of the buttery sautéed trumpet mushrooms. Everything was delicious, including the local Gruet sparkling wine. Flourless chocolate cake and the burnt basque cheesecake were the perfect ending to a great experience. We were treated to a torrential thunderstorm while seated outside, but we stayed dry under their covered patio. Highly recommend! We’ll return every time we come to Santa Fe! Our new favorite restaurant!

    Great ambience in the bar. We had Caesar salads and pizza, both delicious. Good wine list and good service.

    Haven't been there in ages. I would summarize the experience as follows: Menu choices - acceptable. Prices - acceptable. Food - good. Service - marginal.

    The food is always good, the stuffed poblano was excellent, the only unfortunate thing was that our party of four waited from 6:00 seating to 7:40 for eating. Wait staff was friendly, the kitchen had issues. This was on June 8th on the outside patio. As a local, I know I will be back but…
