Four of us went to eat at this restaurant for lunch after visiting the art museum. The restaurant is small and cozy. If you sit outside, you over look the river walk and this is very nice on a beautiful San Antonio day. We had...More

We enjoyed a leisurely lunch on the balcony of the museum cafe. The food was good, and it was fun to watch activity on the riverwalk. The property across the river has an interesting story, which the servers can tell you.

We ate here before going next door to the San Antonio Art Museum. Delicious, nutritious choices -- we each had quiche (which came with a mixed salad and roasted potatoes) and a glass of wine. Lovely meal and attentive service.

As noted in Susan E's review, the location and view is wonderful. Much nicer than the usual riverwalk tourist restaurants. The special today was mussels in garlic butter sauce and well worth the trip. I had the smoked salmon and avocado sandwich that was a...More
