Lonely Planet review

The memorable surroundings feature dark-wood tables set with china and white linen, and huge picture windows with views of the rim and canyon beyond. The service is excellent, the menu creative, the portions big and the food very good. Breakfast options include fresh-squeezed orange juice, El Tovar's pancake trio (buttermilk, blue cornmeal and buckwheat pancakes with pine nut butter and prickly pear syrup) and cornmeal- encrusted 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 12:15pm. The adjacent cocktail lounge is busy for afternoon cocktails and after-dinner drinks.
