Wonderful for quick lunch

We stopped by here after visiting El Santuario for a quick lunch. Friendly staff. The green chile stew was amazing. Perfect flavor and mild heat. Very good red chile ranch salad dressing. Would highly recommend dessert, especially the mocha piñon mousse!

Service was great and the food was fabuloso! Anything you order will become your favorite. I had the steak smothered with chili, calabacitas and it was delicious.

The food was really great. You get quite a bit for the price. Could not eat it all. Service was excellent.

Had lunch here after departing Taos enroute to Santa Fe. Recommended by friend and he was right, the pulled pork burrito was so good. Must be absolutely packed during summer !

This lovely restaurant draws patrons from all over the region. The building is old and lovely, the garden seating is refreshing. On one visit, troubadours serenaded us at our table. The prickly pear fruit frozen lemonade is to die for, and I hear you can get it in an adult version, as well. I'd recommend getting a reservation or you... More

The food is always excellent from the New Mexican food to the Trout. They have both indoor/outdoor seating (outdoor patio has heaters for a not too cold eating experience). It is worth while to take a walk around the compound, has beautiful views and the shops have wonderful gifts. The bar area has a wonderful fireplace to sit have appetizers/drinks.... More

About 25 miles outside Santa Fe on the way to Taos. Spicy green chile soup, milder (but very tasty) tortilla soup. Amazing enchiladas. Very attentive, friendly service. Wouldn't miss a trip to Rancho de Chimayo whenever I am in the area.
