In town and downtown for a walk, looking for decent place for a solo happy hour that was not deep fried and luckily ducked in here. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and menu selection. Being somewhat of a non-traditional diner, I chose the Warm Beet salad for my appetizer and found it to be fantastic. I had a... More

Went in for happy hour and had drinks and the best burger I have ever had all for under 25$. The entrees are generally pricey, but happy hour has really good prices. The staff are always really cheerful and friendly.

We went to this restaurant expecting excellent food based on the reviews. It was by far the worst and most expensive dinner we had in Durango. The appetizers and sushi were terrible. Entree was average and dessert was pretty good. The Toro had no fat. It was a very cheap cut. The oysters were warm (with popcorn?!?) and made 3... More

We go out to eat a lot, and this was probably one of my favorite dinners this year. Whenever we travel we try a small local restaurants, and the food and service at Eolus was outstanding from A-Z! Local ingredients, creative menu and great execution.

Eolus is the best in Durango! Expect high quality food that is prepared with care. The excellent service is also consistent and a welcome change from the "get em in, get em out" mentality of other restaurants. Standouts include the hanger steak, seafood stew and grilled salmon. We also like the warm beet salad as a starter, along with the... More

My wife and I went to Eolus recently while visiting family in Durango. The restaurant is on Main Street in downtown Durango. We went to restaurant when is was called Cosmopolitan few years ago. The menu has sushi plus your typical range of appetizers, salads and entrees. We were jammed into table between two different tables so it was very... More

I live inn Durango Colorado and up until recently have chosen Eolus as my favorite dinning restaurant in Durango. On my last visit I was served one glass of wine while my friend had a cocktail. Midway through dinner we ordered another. When asked why our order was taking so long the manager informed us that they would serve us... More

We are new residents in Durango and have been hitting all the best in town. I will put Eolus on the top of my list. I went through trip advisor and open table to make reservations. While on the way there we were called and the hostess asked if we would mind being on the roof. It's November in Colorado... More
