The Grand Canyon is one of the most magnificent sights in Arizona. This canyon was carved by the Colorado River exposing nearly two billion years of the Earth’s geological history. It truly is a wonder.

A wonderful way to splurge whilst visiting the Grand Canyon is to try a meal at the historic El Tovar Hotel. Though the food in not outstanding, the experience and views from window tables that overlook the canyon are.

The menu is quite comprehensive and “gourmet”. It’s better than any other meal you will find in and around the park but it is pricey. Skip the desserts – they were all abominations!!

What I really liked about the menu at El Tovar is that the kids are not just stuck with the kids menu but can order any entrees which is served to them in a half-portions at discounted prices.

Do make sure that you make reservations weeks ahead of time. In the busy seasons, it can be virtually impossible to snag a table at any kind of earthly dinning hour. Window seats can be requested but are not reserved or guaranteed.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

Smoked Salmon and Trout Crostini with Goat Cheese and Capers

 

Deviled Crab Cakes with Sonoran Remoulade

 

French Onion Soup Gratinée

 

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

 

Natural Chicken Piccata

 

Roasted Half Duck with Sundried Cherry Merlot Sauce

 

Apple Strudel

 

Chocolate Ganache Cake

Fiesta Mexicana, Page, Arizona

Page, Arizona is famous for a remarkable collection of geological wonders, monuments, historical sites, slot canyons and so much more.

Finding good food in Page is a whole different story though!

Why is Fiesta Mexicana rated so highly on every online food guide???

This cheery, colorful Mexican themed restaurant looks inviting enough. We started off with really good chips and salsa and everything went downhill from there. The service is friendly but painfully slow. The food is average bordering on awful. How disappointing is all I can say.

This place is just about one step up from pulling up to the drive through window at a Taco Bell!

Please don’t eat here!
