Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

What a fantastic restaurant! We happened upon this jewel while staying at the Brazos lodge. We are vegetarians and the chef was most accommodating to our needs! Well done!!!

“Rustic and Wonderful”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The CliffView Restaurant in located in Brazos Canyon 8 miles east of the intersection of Highways 84 and 512 as you head north to Chama. It is in a heavily wooded valley filled with private cabins of all sizes and a cabin resort. The Restaurant is in an authentic and charming log cabin with atmosphere that suits the location. It's cheerful and cozy vibe welcomes locals and visitors to stay a while and have a relaxing dinner. The menu is quite extensive and descriptions of the meals made it difficult to make a choice. The four of us placed our orders, two for pork chops and two for fish and chips. The two who ordered fish and chips consider themselves fish and chips experts as they have sampled them throughout the United Kingdom. Salads arrived in colorful bowls with a variety of lettuces and veggies. We find salad to be pretty boring most of the time but these salads and dressings were terrific! Crisp and flavorful with exactly the right amount of dressing. Our entrees then arrived and we all were very impressed! The pork chops were tender and juicy, and the fish and chips were declared to be suitable for the Queen! I can't recall the last time a restaurant meal exceeded our expectations. The service was great and our meals were perfect. We were told that the chef had not shown up so the owner was doing the cooking. Amazing! He did a terrific job!

“Request for listing on TripAdvisor!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We would like you to add our restaurant to listings for Chama, NM, so that we're no longer northern New Mexico's best kept secret!

“Great dining below the Brazo Cliff and Corkins Lodge”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The restaurant came under new management last year and that really made a difference. Rustic cozy setting, really good food, and a new full-stocked bar. Maybe a little pricier than average Chama fare, but the food outclasses the competition so to speak. The view out the east windows is amazing!
