One of the restaurants at the beautiful Cheyenne Mountain Resort, the Mountain View Restaurant really does live up to its name. The outdoor terrace is the eatery's main drawing card, affording breathtaking views of the mountains. Although the views are the main talking point, the food, too is worthy of mention. From their post at the open-air kitchen, the chefs whip up some truly delicious creations for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. The restaurant offers 'Colorado Fusion' cuisine, crafted from fresh, local produce and incorporating cooking styles from the world over. Your fusion meal starts with offerings like buffalo carpaccio, mussels and chorizo and lemon asparagus bisque, among many others. You can then move on to mains like Thai BBQ rack of Colorado lamb, huitlacoche salmon and queso fresco stuffed chicken. You can also pick something from the wine selection to complement your meal.
The name is interesting in its own right, but the real attraction here is the tableside meal preparation. Flambe-style cooking never fails to attract a crowd, and it certainly fills the tables at this extremely popular eatery. The overall feel is casual and friendly. Expect to have a lot of fun when dining here. The pepper steak is one of many delicious entrees, but the desserts are the ultimate flavor treats. Flambe cooking would be nothing without classics like Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee. If you are dining with others, order them both and share.
If you drive past Joseph's Fine Dining, which is quite easy to do, you will be truly sorry, for you will be missing out on a wonderful meal.

Other delicacies you could gorge on include duck à l'Orange, shrimp tortellini puttanesca and steak a la Diane. For a truly memorable fine dining experience, Joseph's should make it to the top of your list.

This rustic crowd-pleaser has history to thank for its name. Located in the building that was the original stage stop for the town, the restaurant still exhibits plenty of Victorian charm. The menu offers a wide assortment of American and international dishes. Many items border on the fringe of normal fare including the slow-roasted buffalo being the perfect example. If you are somewhat less adventurous, stick with the prime rib or one of the many seafood, poultry, vegetarian or pasta choices.
Step into the culture of Morocco for a dining experience that you will not soon forget. Student belly dancers, along with their instructors, perform for diners on Fri and Sat.

For a taste of the German experience, try this fabulous restaurant. The interior reflects the theme of the menu without going overboard. Accordion fans will want to visit on the weekend when live music is played. It is hard to say if you should order the potato pancakes or the bacon potato salad to go with your wurst and homemade kraut. Both are delicious, so sampling each might not be a bad idea. The potluck platter is the best choice for hearty diners who like to share.
This festive restaurant has quite a reputation for "how-can-it-be-this-inexpensive" Mexican fare. The interior is adorned with Mexican-styled decorations, but not to the campy point of overkill. Fajitas, tamales, enchiladas and all the other staples of Mexican fare are all offered. The salsa bar includes four options ranging from mild to "quick-jam-a-fire-extinguisher-in-my-mouth" hot. Try the fried ice cream for dessert. Beer and margaritas are available.
Local diners have labeled this friendly, family cafe, which has been serving Colorado Springs since 1958, as one of the "best Italian restaurants in the area." The cozy dining room is perfect for romantic couples, but also appeals to families with kids. Traditional Italian classics, such as linguine and lasagna, and signature dishes are all impressive, but the dessert pizzas are the real "must-have" for most diners. Reservations are required for large parties, and smoking is not allowed. Open Tuesday to Sunday at 5pm.
