Drove up from Taos Ski Valley after a huge December snowfall. The road had been scraped of most of its snow but it was still a challenging ascent in an all wheel drive Subaru. The building is Bavarian cute and looks a lot better covered in snow than summer-time dust. You have the choice of inside or outside seating. We... More

We had originally eaten at this restaurant in 2002 and loved it. So when we planned a last minute trip to New Mexico recently, we had to go back to this restaurant. I had the German spatzle and cheese, and my husband had a sausage plate with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. The food was delicious. The building reminds me of... More

Coming off of a trek to Wheeler's Peak, a beer and a bratwurst was just the ticket. We were greeted with warm service, friendly welcome, and a great plate of delicious eats. No crowd today as this was the "off season." We enjoyed the cool temps and the cold brews.

While visiting Taos the local guide brochure listed a German restaurant. We love German food and were intrigued. It was late summer and the restaurant was in the Ski village but a kind lady a Taos T-Shirt shop offered to call for us ans see if they were, in fact, open in this very off season. Luckily for us they... More

Delicious well prepared food, beautiful setting, an excellent dining experience. Well worth the short drive on an unpaved road. A+

The heavily rutted dirt road from the base of the main ski lift at Taos up to the Bavarian's location (about 2.5 miles) was torture. Once at the restaurant we found the atmosphere, the service and the quality of the food extremely nice.

The Bavarian is at the top of Taos Ski Valley. It's a great place during ski season and also in the summer. Great views of the mountain on their large patio, plus the inside is very cool too. Wonderful German/Austrian beer selections. Try a 36 oz. one, but one is plenty at this altitude. The food is good too.

Gotta love a German restaurant in the mountains in the middle of a ski resort. Great beer, outstanding schnitzel and sausages, wonderful service and an apple strudel dessert to die for!! We always seek out good German food when we are traveling and the Bavarian did not disappoint us when we stopped in for lunch. Good location,wonderful beer garden to... More

First, we wanted to talk about the Sustainable Sunday Dinners that are going on each Sunday this Summer -- reservations required. We attended one in July and it was one of the most memorable culinary events our lifetimes. It was titled Farm to Mountain to Table and featured locally grown and produced foods from Taos. Each grower/producer actually got up... More

What a disappointment. We drove nearly an hour on the twisty mountain roads from Red River to Taos with great anticipation of enjoying some fine German cuisine. Instead, we were informed that they were only accepting patrons with reservations that evening (July 20, 2014) and they could not accommodate us. This, in spite of the fact that there were empty...
