first off I must say that the view out of this restaurant's window is great. the city really sparkles. the service and the food did not so much. I was here for a business dinner, it was a Friday night so I was expecting the restaurant to be busy. there were 42 people in out group so that might be... More

This great little place has excellent Mexican food & good margs. The nachos are not just a pile of chips with a bit of stuff on top...they are layered throughout with yummy melted cheddar & green chilies, & a half order easily feeds two people. The queso & salsa are outstanding. Breakfast has a huge number of choices, although almost... More

I have eaten here many times and always enjoy it. It is not fancy, but the food is good. I highly recommend the guacamole. I'm not sure why, but it is especially tasty. Also the desserts are excellent. I did find the green chili to be too hot to eat. I would ask for a sample if you are tempted.... More

We had a nice brunch at Wondervu. Service was friendly and efficient and we enjoyed our meal. Not much of an actual view, though a good stopover if you're passing by. Menu is quite extensive with a Mexican bias. Not too many 'healthy' options so bear this in mind if that's your requirement.

4 hungry gals, needing a hot meal and a cold beer. Sue ran the dining floor single handed and yet made us feel like we were the only diners there's. we all ordered Mexican dishes and were not disappointed in anything other than the fact we couldn't finish our plates!

The Wondervu Cafe is a delicious Mexican restaurant on top of a beautiful mountain. I am a huge critic when it comes to green chili because I pride myself on the chili I make for my family at home. Wondervu's chili was delicious. It was very flavorful and not so spicy that all the other flavors were disguised. My husband... More

Fresh tasting Mexican on the mountain. A little pricey for Mexican, but the ambience is awesome. Definitely worth it.

We stumbled across this restaurant on the scenic drive from Denver to Estes Park. The food was delicious and the portions are huge. Some of the best Mexican food we have had. The desserts looked amazing but we were too full to try them. Next time!!!

We stayed at the Eldora Lodge and lucked upon the Wondervu Cafe for dinner. This extremely remote, isolated cafe provided great surface and excellent food. The Mexican food was as though we were back in Texas. It was true Tex-Mex! The salsa was delicious, and we learned later it is being sold in Whole Foods market. The food had great... More
