The setting and the food are equally superb. Dark-wood tables are set with china and white linen, eye-catching murals spotlight Native American tribes and huge windows frame views of the rim and canyon. The service is generally excellent, the menu creative, and the portions big.

Breakfast options include El Tovar's pancake trio (buttermilk, blue cornmeal and buckwheat pancakes with pine nut butter and prickly pear syrup) and blackened trout with two eggs. Lunch and dinner menus are equally creative.

Reservations are required for dinner. To avoid lunchtime crowds, eat before the Grand Canyon Railway train arrives at 11:45am. The adjacent cocktail lounge is busy for afternoon cocktails and after-dinner drinks.
