It all began with a dream...
As a youngster, Roberta Finley began to pursue her dream of developing a special kind of New Mexican cuisine which would combine the best features of all the influences found in New Mexico – the Native American, the Mexican, and the Northern European as well as the Old World Spanish traditions her family had cherished for generations.
She fine-tuned her talents and her recipes working alongside her grandmother in the family kitchen and later by experimenting with local flavors when providing for her own growing family. In 1976 Roberta realized her dream and opened Cervantes Restaurant in Albuquerque, featuring those healthful, rich and savory family recipes.
Since 1979, Cervantes New Mexican Restaurant has ranked among the top 5 restaurants offering authentic, traditional New Mexican cuisine in Albuquerque and in New Mexico where this festive food was born. In a city of well over 150 New Mexican restaurants, Cervantes New Mexican Restaurant stands out! For over 35 years, we have continuously produced and prepared foods that are rich in flavor and low in fat – some even call it “Healthy for the Heart” cuisine. And, every year the reputation of the restaurant continues to grow as we are committed to serving the very best in Classic New Mexican Cuisine!
Cervantes New Mexican Restaurant is located in one of Albuquerque’s most diverse districts -- The International District.
