frontLocated just outside of Sedona, in the middle of the Verde Valley’s wine country, the Manzanita Restaurant is just a short trip away from Sedona, Cottonwood and Camp Verde. Take the short, delightful drive through the Verde Valley’s wine country where you will find the Manzanita Restaurant and savor the delightful dishes the chefs prepare fresh daily. Founded in 1991  by Swiss trained master-chef Albert Kramer, III, the restaurant boasts an eclectic menu of American, European and German specialties.

At the Manzanita Restaurant you will delight in the old-fashioned healthy cooking with soups and sauces made-from-scratch and hand trimmed meats and fish. Fresh organic fruits, vegetables and herbs straight from the garden are used when available. 

This “Culinary Oasis in the Desert” has been featured on the well known Arizona Highways TV program and honored with placement in Claire Bush’s Dining in Arizona – 101 Greatest Places to Eat. Other recognitions include Fodor’s Travel Guide.

Renown for authentic German food, the Manzanita Restaurant also features superb seafood, steaks and other specialty dishes. Rabbit, duck and wild game frequent the daily specials list.
