What a great find at Taos!

Really great food and beer. A perfect place for lunch at Taos Ski Valley. Can't wait to get back! I recommend the jagerschneitzel as it comes with good mushroom gravy and the dark German beer.

Often stop in for hearty German fare and beers either for lunch or après (ski in winter or hike in summer). Fun atmosphere especially on one of new Mexico's many bluebird days

German food was ok, not fantastic. Beer was superb. Service was excellent. The location is monsterously wonderful at the base of a ski run. A great experience.

We had the opportunity to grab a table on the deck looking up towards the top of Wheeler Peak and it was absolutely gorgeous! They specialize in German beers so you don't have to sacrifice quality at a ski resort! 👍

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
