Be careful. Apparently some people have confused this restaurant - Sandiago's with a "d" - and a different restaurant called Santiago's spelled with a "t". This one (with the "d") is at Sandia Peak and has a very nice view from the restaurant. We ate after our tram ride and enjoyed it.

Had dinner with an old friend. This place is pretty hard to find after dark! The Catch of the Day was a lovely red snapper with rice and veggies. The fish was delicious. The rice contained Serrano chiles, a fact not shared by our server. After I recovered from the delayed and painful burn, I avoided any further rice. As... More

When I made our Open Table reservation I was under the impression this restaurant was at the top of the tram, I should have looked closer because it's at the bottom of the tram. It is up on a hill though so you still do get a pretty good sunset view. My attached picture is a little deceiving though because... More

We came on Friday for a late lunch. It was still crowded but we lucked out and got a table at the west window with views of the city. Our server was super great. Food and margaritas were good. I'm not sure the food is "New Mexican" but it is kind of "Albuquerquean". It is spicy so get chipolte flavored... More

Food is tasty with good variety of New Mexican flavors. Nice views of the city if you happen to get a seat outside or inside along the window. Nice place to visit after your return trip from the Sandia Tram.

Great Mexican menu and quality food. We booked a table here weeks in advance because we wanted to sit on the terrace and watch the sun set over Albuquerque we were so glad we did. Great food, great service, great views. Worth coming all the way from the UK for.

We watched the sunset over the city while we dined; we also watched a storm pass over. Lovely atmosphere, great service, good size portions, reasonable prices.

After standing in a Tram lineup for around 2 hours and then finally giving up, we decided to grab a bite of authentic Mexican food. We were not disappointed in the least. The service initially was a little slow as they apparently didn't realize we had been seated. Finally one of the wait staff noticed us and from there on,... More
