Ok this was really good. Portions were way too large so not sure why someone said they're small. The rattlesnake cakes were the most amazing. We had ribs, trout, lamb shank and lobster Mac and cheese for the 4 of us. All plates were outstanding. Truly. In the middle of nowhere, this was awesome.

As good a meal with a gourmet flourish as one could obtain in any major city. I had the Elk, which was outstanding. We dined here two nights in a row because it was so good. Very reasonable prices as well.

This place was pretty pricey, the decor does not look that upscale, but the food and service and presentation of the food was Food Network Star worthy. And we got to taste rattlesnake (tasted like crab the way they prepared it)

Amazing restaurant situated in the middle of nowhere. One reviewer said it was the best food on his vacation and my husband and I felt the same. Spectacular food, service and price. So much creativity in food preparation....can't believe it's that good. Do yourself a favor and go!

Who would have thought that such a high quality restaurant could be found in a small town such as Torrey Utah. We dropped in for lunch today and had the best shrimp tacos. Do not forget to ask for the avocado fries, incredible. If you want a twist on a crouton to banana bread croutons on my wife's salad we're... More

Unexpected and simply amazed to find this little treasure of fine dining nestled amidst the beautiful red rock adventure land. After hiking and exploring capital reef national park for the day we were famished. Not wanting the typical burger and fry type fare we opted for cafe diablo as we heard it was a unique dining experience. Family was visiting... More

In Torrey for hiking. Sampled several eateries. This was head and shoulders above the rest. Incredible flavors. Something you might expect out of a big city chef. I live in a small town and wish there was a place with this quality near me. Great service, excellent food, nice ambiance. If you are coming through Torrey, eat here. You won't... More

The town of Torrey is small and choices are limited, but we found this restaurant had good reviews, so we decided to try it. What a find! It doesn't look like much from the outside and it's not fancy, but the food is amazingly good! Great menu choices...there are salmon dishes, elk, lamb, steak, etc. awesome sides come with the...

Cafe Diablo was recommended in a guide book so we went to dinner one evening. We were impressed with the variety of dishes on the menu, then we were blown away by the flavors. We love this place and returned the next night for dinner too. Our favorites included the Diablo Salad, the Spinich Wild Mushroom Salad, Pumpkin Ravioli and... More
