We have eaten at the Bavarian many times for lunch and I have reviewed it on the basis of those (wonderful) experiences. Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to enjoy dinner at the Bavarian the it did not disappoint. A wonderful atmosphere, great service, good food and a special night.

With friends from Austin we went to the Bavarian after a day of skiing. We enjoyed a round of good German beer après ski. For dinner we ordered the sampler of Bavarian specialties served family style. The platters emerged with jäger schnitzel, Wiener schnitzel, mixed sausages, brisket, spatzle, red cabbage. Sauerkraut, etc. Every specialty was hot and delicious. Portions were... More

From the minute you walk into The Bavarian, you are transported to a lovely Austrian home. Charmingly decorated and comfortably unique, this was the most wonderful place to spend New Year's Eve. Cahmpagne greeted you, along with the festive hats, bells, whistles to celebrate. The five course, fixed price meal was divine, with choices to suit everyone's taste. The Bavarian... More

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

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.
