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...

This is a great bar to stop at for a drink break without having to get off the mountain. Great beer selection and fun atmosphere. No liquor (which is good since it's on the mountain). Easy to get in and out of on the slopes.

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.
