This restaurant is Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town. They have a wonderful patio area to sit and relax during meals. The food and drinks were tasty and a good portion size. They even serve breakfast. Breakfast is varied from fruit and yogurt to local egg and potato dishes. You pay a bit more for meals, but well worth it with... More

During a recent conference, we stayed at the Hotel Albuquerque and frequented the restaurant Garduno's inside the hotel. Our very first experience was a little less than what we expected, as we had to wait quite awhile for a waiter. Once we got our food, it was delicious, and plentiful! Later that day, we went to the bar where we... More

Excellent responsive staff good fresh food I dashed into the restaurant located in the Hotel Albuquerque close to their closing wondering what if anything I'd be able to order at the end of day. I was greeted by Danielle who cheerfully reassured me that the entire menu was available & helped me locate choices that could meet my diet requirements.... More

This became a favorite of our family members attending the reunion from all over the US - we couldn't get enough chile, both green and red.

It wasn't very busy when we went. Our waiter was so very nice! Even though we weren't staying in the hotel he went and gave us a discount! Food was pretty good!

We have been to Gaduno's Old Town several times now and the food and service are consistently excellent-and, if you're not happy, they will make it right.. The ambiance is great and the hotel lobby adds to the "feel" of the new Mexican dining experience. One thing that has impressed us @ this Garduno's is consistently professional servers. They all...

Had the seafood chimichanga, yum. Sampled my wifes talapia tacos and they were really good too. Green and red sauces are both excellent. Chips and salsa are some of the best I've ever had. They make their own. John our waiter was very helpful and most attentive. I will ask for him again.

Outstanding service!!! Our server, Steve, was so attentive and polite to our party of 18 and never missed a beat, ever! The food was AMAZING (as usual) and the entire staff was kind, helpful, and exceedingly patient. The event was arranged from Colorado (over the phone) and every time I called to update the number in our party, Andrea was... More

This was our second visit to Garduno's. The first time we went there because we were staying in the Hotel. This time we stayed in the Hotel and chose to go there. The food and service was exceptional. Unlike my wife I'm not a "spicy foods" person. But New Mexico spicy food is different. It is a true culinary experience.... More
