From farm to table and vine to wine Eolus Bar & Dining offers something for everyone. The local bounty shines through as the restaurant features an array of local products from farms, ranches, vinters, and breweries around southwest Colorado. Offering distinct places to enjoy the cuisine the rooftop patio is covered providing ample protection from the elements while providing premium views of the surrounding mountains. The elegant dining room provides choices of tables or booths to relax and sample creative concoctions from the bar. Eolus is great place to celebrate special occasions so be sure to let us know how we can elevate your dining experience. We are open 7 nights a week starting at 4:30.

A pleasant surprise in Durango, this restaurant was quite good. Super cool ambiance, very laid back. My server was great. Wine menu very good. My Crispy Salmon Nori Roll starter was scrumptious, I could eat a plateful of those. The Pan Roasted Duck Breast main was delish, I loved the confit and fig risotto. The mountain of arugula was distracting... More

I ordered a halibut special with sugar snap peas and chanterelles. It was wonderful. Fresh, seasonal, light yet very satisfying. My colleague had the skirt steak and gorgonzola mashed potatoes. The potatoes were some of the best I've ever had but she ordered the steak medium and it was very rare. The rooftop was a great atmosphere.

We were just walking down Main Street looking for a place to eat breakfast on a Sunday morning...without a line! Eolus had a table available, not knowing what to expect. What a treat! Who makes Eggs Benedict classic anymore? The poached eggs were perfect! Service was excellent and the design touches were an unexpected pleasure too. It had been a... More

The food was amazing! Very good! The rooftop was awesome! Great atmosphere! Service was amazing!We needed a cab to get back to the hotel and they called one for us and made sure it got to the restaurant! The dessert was wonderful as well. Next time I'm in the area I will definitely go to this place.

This is a beautiful restaurant right on Main Avenue. The food and service is exemplary! It is my go-to restaurant for special occasions. This is a restaurant dedicated to using local vendors and has an extensive bar menu. Great happy hour and they have a roof top deck which is wonderful during the warmer months. Fantastic!

We regularly visit restaurants in Durango and there are many good ones. This restaurant, however, ranks among the best. While the menu tends toward seafood, there are also several beef, poultry, vegetarian, and gluten free selections. The wait staff, knowing we were celebrating our anniversary, were attentive and prompt, yet made sure we were not hurried as we enjoyed each... More
