We go out for breakfast Saturday mornings and this morning tried Valentinas, a small restaurant at the end of an older strip shopping center here in Santa Fe, which we had passed earlier in the week. Simple review: very pleasant interior and ambiance, excellent, friendly...More

I have been to Valentina's several times now; the most recent 2 weeks ago when I met there for lunch with one of my Vietnam veteran friends. We both have been there so my 'surprise' for him was missed. I returned again last week for...More

Had the chilli rilleno with green chili. Okay but nothing special. Green chili was just hot with no other flavor notes. Service was fine, there was live music the night we went. Music was good but so loud it was difficult to hear other people...More

My husband had the chicharon burrito, which was delicious. I had the Adovada combo plate and it was perfection. The red chile is so good and pretty spicy. The sopapillas are top notch. We will definitely be back next time we visit Santa Fe.

Valentina's has been my favorite spot for lunch for the past 5 years. I discovered it while doing laundry in the Solana Center. It's off the beaten path (i.e. away from the Plaza area) but the food and service are stellar. My favorite dish is...More

Went on a Fri night w/ friends, and it did not disappoint: solid old school Northern NM fare. Had the Veggie combo, and the beans n chili were good, and $12.00 for an entre was refreshing. Place was almost full @ 7pm, nice vibe too.

We were lucky enough to visit Valentina's on a night when Buenaventura was performing (the all-female mariachi group), so our delicious meals were accompanied by a delightful performance. The chile rellenos, tacos, posole and adovada were terrific - but the sopapillas were incredible. This is...More
