I was looking forward to an order of the Goulash , Wiener Schnitzel is a popular part of Viennese cuisine. , however they don't serve the veal but a pork version. The Goulash was too meaty, no potatoes or vegetables. I was very disappointed and to top it off the service was very slow.

We did not stay in the lodge, but we ate here twice - lunch and dinner. Lunch was outside on the patio with a stunning view of the mountain. Dinner was inside where we could enjoy the ambiance. The staff and the food was excellent both times. They offer a shuttle service from Taos Ski Valley and that was much... More

I don't have to go to Austria, I can get that good old feeling of being in a Pension in Austria right here in Taos New Mexico! Just so awesome. Expensive. But memories in the making...dinner was great, the room was better.

Didn't stay here, but ate lunch and found the food to be quite good. Our service was lacking as they were short staffed for the day after Christmas, which is understandable if employees took a vacation themselves I suppose. Otherwise would have been 4 Stars. I had the Goulaschuppe (Goulash soup), spatzle and weinerschnitzel. My wife had a 'Bavarian Burger'... More

We stayed at The Bavarian for a few days earlier this year. The skiing wasn't great (not enough snow), but our stay at the Bavarian was so charming and authentic. The location is amazing for skiing - just steps away from the ski lift. The lodge is beautifully constructed and the rooms are spacious, complete with the same impressive murals... More

The Bavarian Lodge and Restaurant offers superior food, drink, lodging and atmosphere for anyone skiing or partaking in summer activities in The Taos Ski Valley and Sangre de Christo Mountain areas. My family recently did some hiking and mountain biking in the area and had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. They offered us a german sampler plate and the... More

We found this near the base of the hiker's parking lot at Taos Mountain. We figured that it would be an average little ski mountain base place for drinks or a light meal. Boy, we're we surprised. The beer was cold and the food was excellent; way beyond expectations. We were there at off-ski season as we were hiking Williams's... More

The lodge is charming; the location is fantastic; the restaurant is good; the room was dated; and the bed was a brick. We literally used our air up camping mattresses under the sheet. We will return to the restaurant--but no more overnight stays.

I've stayed here in the off season only. I've eaten here during the ski season. Food is great; staff is great; location is fabulous, but I can't help but agreeing with some of the reviewers that it could be so much more. It needs to be spruced up -- it has a somewhat stale feeling.

As a resident of Taos, I have never had the occasion to stay here, but the restaurant is amazing. Sunny days mean the outside deck for lunch, even in January. The food is like being in Bavaria, wonderful brats, sauerkraut, spatzele, goulash, schnitzel, salads and amazing strudel. The beer is Spaten on tap, what is not to love? The views... More
