The Pink Adobe in Santa Fe is listed in tourist guides as the city's finest and most ancient restaurant. It's housed in a building that's more than three hundred years old. We went there for lunch on September 20, 2005 and found the place in a state of great agitation. It seeems their whole computer system had broken down and they weren't fully sure how to seat people or how to take orders.

The Pink Adobe Restaurant
Still, we were shown to a table in the small central room of the establishment without too much delay and got a waiter who was taking the whole breakdown in stride. Our food came in a reasonable time and was quite good, not any better than we might have had in dozens of other places but complemented well by the aura of oldness, and coolness, which was soothing. I don't know how much you would have to pay for dinner there, but the lunch prices were not too bad. I recommend it to you if you're ever in Santa Fe between 12:00 and 2:00 P.M.
