We met up with a large group of people at Yves but sadly the weather was rainy so we missed out on sitting in the garden and soaking up the sun. The food was fine--not anything extraordinary--but the ambiance, the artworks for sale, Yves and the albino rescued donkeys and their amazing story--now even retold in a children's book--all make...

Quiet environment, friendly, accommodating staff, good food. Sit inside or outside by the pool. You will be charmed by the two donkeys . There is a history that the owner is glad to share about them, mother and daughter.

I visited Yves tonite for dinner with friends. We all had a different dish and we all pleased ...hamburger and fries- terrific; chicken fajitas were generous in portion assuring a midnight snack later on; a grilled chicken salad with ample chicken and lots of lettuce, onions and a delicate dressing...homemade dinner rolls kick off the dining experience. Yves himself visits... More

Eat here frequently for lunch. The taco salad is excellent and the sandwiches always fresh. It's also a Donkey sanctuary- so support Yve and his wife who take care and rescue these lovely animals. The grounds are lovely to sit outside and enjoy the pool and watch the donkeys live out their lives.

Although they have indoor seating (so I'm told), the wonderful garden around a former pool, now fountain, is too beautiful to go indoors. Speakers in the trees provide background music and the food is very good. The service, however, is outstanding! Servers have been here for years and they do a great job. It has a warm, family feel with... More

The setting was very nice. We chose to sit by the pool with the fountains. There were many outdoor tables under trees as well. We went for breakfast and the omelets were great as was the coffee. The staff are very friendly and Manuel took very good care of us. Very reasonable prices as well. We returned for supper that... More

We had an enjoyable evening at Yves. The service was lovely. Seeing the burros in the garden was an unexpected treat. The salad bar had so many fresh choices.
