“A real disappointment”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

On my first visit to Infante's for lunch about a month ago, both the food and service were very good. But my return trip for dinner was a huge disappointment. The kitchen must have been either understaffed or unprepared because the food service was slow. But that's OK if the food served is at all good. I ordered fish tacos and it was served cold. The blue cheese appetizer is usually made with very thin slices of potato but what we got was a plate of potato chips out of the bag with cheese and tomato sprinkled on top. It was such a bad meal that the restaurant had the decency not to charge us anything. But what a disappointing evening! So sad!

“Just So-So”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We had disappointing meals here. There were 4 of us and nobody like courses. The soap was poor, the salads so-so as were the main courses. Would not recommend.

“Maria's is closed. It is now Infante's Eclectic Cuisine”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Maria's Grill has closed. Infante's Eclectic Cuisine is now in the same location and worth experiencing. Excellent selections of unique ingredients.

“WONDERFUL RESTAURANT - WELCOME INFANTES”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

We phoned Maria's to see if they were open on December 21 and learned they had changed ownership and were now Infantes. We decided to try the new restaurant for dinner and were just amazed and thrilled with the food and service. This is one of the best meals and experiences that we have had in many years. We were greeted by Sean who is the son and part owner and seated quickly. We were blessed to have Jeremy as our server (one of the best ever). We also met the father and owner of the business and he was delightful.
We ordered a bottle of wine. Their wine menu is limited due to them just opening seven days prior, however there were some good choices. We had the calamari for an appetizer which was the best calamari we have every had. My husband had the Paella and my mom the salmon and they were both delicious. We heard the table next to us talking about how good something was and learned it was the creme brulee.
When we finished our meal, we wanted to order the creme brulee, however Jeremy told us they were out. The father came to our table and told us if we wanted to wait 45 minutes, they would make some additional creme brulee for us and it would be worth the wait. He gave us free wine and coffee while we waited. After about 20 minutes, the chef, Zach, (who is amazing) came to our table and knelt down to chat with us. He told us he went to the market which is a few doors down and was unable to get the ingredients for the creme brulee, however would make a desert with Italian gelato, fruit and carmelized walnuts if we would wait. In about 15 minutes, we had the most wonderful dessert we have ever tasted. Jeremy brought us our bill and they would not charge us for the additional wine, coffee or the incredible dessert. When we left, we were thanked by all as we left and they even brought my husband his glasses which he left on the table. You really felt like a valued customer.
We were so impressed we decided to return on December 23 for the my birthday and last night. The food was once again fantastic. We had the scallop appetizer. My husband and I the hamburger which was excellent and you can even get a egg on top if you like. My mom ordered the calamari as her main course since she loved it so much the last time. We tried the creme brulee and and it was great, however not as good as Zach's creation. The only thing we missed the was the warmth and caring of Jeremy, Sean, the father and the rest of the family. There was definitely a difference it the atmosphere, however not the food.
We wish them well and plan to return when are back in Tubac in May.
