Want a truly fine farm to table dining experience? Balisage Bistro is THE place! I’ve eaten many many meals at this amazing little gem of a restaurant.
I’m very picky about ingredients, presentation and flavor. Chef Daniel delivers 5 stars in all these is in the food and the atmosphere. It’s the only place in the desert where I know my whole experience is going to be of the highest quality.

From the paella to the Moroccan Chicken, Short Ribs to the Sea Bass, each was prepared perfectly, seasoned well.
It’s not always that one can go out to dinner and experience the joy of cooking and the passion of the effort to create a meal from his heart. We were blessed by your gifts and talents, Chef! Looking forward to enjoying another meal from you!
