Authentic German food and an amazing location! They even picked us up and returned us to our hotel. Perfect after a long day on the slopes.

A little bit of Bavaria at the top of the mountain. While the guys skied up to this restaruant each day and enjoyed goulash and a Hefe we decided to make a reservation for dinner one evening so we could experience it too. They actually provided a free (with tipping of course) shuttle from The Alpine Village in Ski Valley... More

Not too bad while skiing. We sat indoors, I found outdoors to be a little more lively, but not a problem. Meals weren't bad, a little expensive for what they were for lunch, but considering it's on the backside of the mountatin during spring break ski season...you pay it. Good selection of beers and wine is why you come, food... More

This German themed restaurant is located a fair drive from the Taos Ski Valley base. It is cheerfully decorated to replicate a Bavarian restaurant - wooden painted walls and a vaulted ceiling. You even sit on a sheep skin. And the restaurant's staff is cheerful and very helpful, dressed in location specific attire. There is a great selection of German... More

I have eaten here many times, both in winter and summer, and it is so familiar that I forgot to ever write a review - but when sitting out on the deck on a totally spectacular day last week I finally remembered that I have to write a review about this place. On a good winter day (of which there... More

Took my family to the Bavarian for dinner for their first visit to Taos. As with our previous visit everything was wonderful, my mother really enjoyed the decor as she said it reminded her of being back in Germany. As far as the food goes everything was great, couldn't have been any better of an experience.

We made reservations for Christmas Eve with Shannon a week before our trip and I had to give her a credit card with a 48 hour cancellation. She said there would be a shuttle at the guard shack to take us up to the restaurant at 8pm. We called at 645 and said we could go early and have some... More

Was here because of a wedding event. The reception was also held at The Bavarian and they catered it. The food was amazing. The employees were very friendly and helpful.

I ate there several times and enjoyed the traditional German fare and the fabulous salmon. It seemed odd to drive up this dirt road to a restaurant but I loved it and will go back!
