This is a beautiful historic restaurant in Old Mesilla. They offer quite a few Mexican specialties and also steaks, etc, for those not interested in New Mexican cuisine. Service was very prompt

The atmosphere and food always prove to be excellent. We rarely are able to visit NM, but we always try to visit Mesilla and of course La Posta. The menu is very large.
