The brunch BBQ, with a multitude of meats, down-home cooking and a vast dessert bar is incredible. Comes with champagne and great hospitality. Expensive but never disappointed!

We had lunch outside. Great steak taco salad! Fresh and delicious. Service was good. Was much better than I had anticipated for a poolside cafe!

Lots of food options and omelette station. Very courteous waitress. Food was delicious and plentiful. Dining room was full of people but was not overly loud so you could enjoy talking with people at your table.

Although we thought our favorite Sunday brunch was at Hacienda Del Sol, Ventana just blew it out of the water! From the bottomless mimosas to the fresh oysters, the shrimp, lamb, prime rib, sushi and all the grilled food, etc., ...one word, "stellar"! We will be back again and again

We stayed in the resort for 3 days. It's a very nice well run basic resort. We had breakfast 3 times and lunch once at the Canyon Cafe. The atmosphere is very basic and boring, sort of a high end Denny's. The breakfast is OK nothing outstanding. Lunch was disappointing. I had a mushroom enchilada that was not hot and... More

Hi all, my trip to Tucson was purely business, but I sure would have loved to stay longer so to get more from what the area has to offer. The ambiance, setting and dinner was great. Time sure flies when the agenda is full. I recommend a visit with free time on your hands, because there is much to experience.... More

Continental breakfast buffet + special Sunday buffet are both pricey but worth the cost thanks to caring chefs and wait staff.

You cannot beat the quality of food and service. The omelets are exceptional. We never miss the opportunity.

The Blue Ribbon Winner for the Best Sunday Brunch in America goes to the Canyon Cafe. You won't need to eat breakfast first and for many guests, dinner will be unnecessary. So just come and enjoy the beautiful Ventana Canyon while you sip numerous mimosas and watch for fast-fleeting roadrunners. The mammoth selection of choices outdoors includes a generous variety...

The Sunday brunch buffet is an extravaganza of delicious food and drinks. Couple the food with good music and a beautiful setting, and you have a nice place to spend several hours on a Sunday afternoon.
