Yummy. Service was a 4 but the food is a 5. Very eclectic but so worth it. Only a few tables and parking is difficult but the food makes up for it. Green sauce had a lot of flavor with just a hint of heat. Guacamole was fresh and very flavorful. The shredded beef tacos were excellent. The beef was... More

I would recommend to friends going to Taos. I would return for sure. Best chili rellenos ever. Great service and friendly. I am hungry just thinking about it.

Don't be put off by the appearance. This certainly isn't the finest or fanciest restaurant in Taos, but the service is friendly & the food fabulous. We had their shrimp special (in a mild chile cream sauce) & their chile relleno w green chile sauce. Both were amazing! Be aware, too, that they have no bar, so no cervezas or... More

Don't judge this place by its cover as some tourists already judged negative. From outside, it looks like many cheap Mexican places typically seen in Southwestern states where people stop by for cheap but filling lunch. They made the place as pleasant as it could be at tiny dining area inside but bathroom area could be tidier. Food: - typical... More

This is a must try for any foodie! It has great Mexican food. The restaurant is small and only seats 12, I counted the chairs. It is the one place I would make sure to stop by the next time I am in Taos.

The food is excellent, and the service is great. Everything is very fresh. I like small restaurants and this one is very good, i highly recommend! The fish tacos can be modified to be cooked without frying the fish- yum! They can make almost anything without cheese or gluten. Very good ceviche too!

My friend and I stopped for a late lunch. Since it was our first time in Taos, we decided to try food that was suited to the area. Jose made suggestions based on our dietary needs, served us beautifully prepared dishes on the patio, and took a nice photo so we could share our experience on social media.

My husband and I stopped at La Cueva for a late, casual lunch. As it was yet another gorgeous Fall day, we sat outside. We were greeted by our wonderful waiter. A smile came easy for him. I ordered the Camaron Enchiladas. As usual, everything was very fresh and the shrimp extremely flavorful. My husband ordered the chipotle shrimp tacos.... More

We read the reviews and stopped at La Cueva Cafe for lunch yesterday. We were not disappointed in the least. It was a gorgeous autumn day, and we sat out on the patio. We ordered a combo plate consisting of two Hatch green chile rellenos and a chicken mole enchilada and a seafood enchilada plate with green chile sauce. The... More

This place looked like a dive, but that usually means the first available parking space should be yours. Being a spectacular day, we chose the outdoor seating which was definitely the right place to be. The guacamole was outstanding - creamy, cool and a bit spicy. The salsa also gets high marks, a true New Mexican "creeper" starting out all... More
