We had breakfast here, we walked from where we were staying and almost missed it as it's tucked away on a street corner. Miss this place and you'll miss a treat. This is a small restaurant that will deliver if you like. The service was extremely friendly, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was cozy. I would highly recommend... More

Very small restaurant with great taste. Great for a quick lunch. Don't let the appearance of the outside stop you from enjoying a good meal.

La Cueva doesn't look like much from the outside, but who cares? The food was great. We tried the green chile enchiladas, a Frito pie, and a chimichanga, all delicious. I'm impressed that they were all piping hot since the fleetfooted waiter had to run across a courtyard to serve our table.

The two little room setup was not ideal when it's snowing outside. Our party of 7 had to sit by the door which gets chilly when the waiter comes in and out. The food were authentic Mexican and tasted great.

Quick road trip from Austin Texas back home to Calgary Alberta brought us through Taos, New Mexico. We were stopped at the signal traffic light and glanced up to see this quaint New Mexican "La Cueva" restaurant. After we checked into our hotel a bit further down the road we decided to return to it. My gut feeling was this... More

We have eaten at La Cueva quite a few times, and like tonight's meal we are never dissapointed. Tonight we had the beef nachos which are always great. For the main course had the shrimp tacos and they were the best I have had, my wife loved her shrimp enchiladas. Great service, and I always recommend the lemonade! Definitely give... More

We have only had their takeout so far (but quite a few times!) This is ours and many other locals favorite spot for a bite of New Mexican cuisine. Best green chile in our opinion, everything has been fantastic from the fish and chips to chimichangas, burritos...all of it! Cant go wrong here!

The chile rellenos were gooey and delicious. The chile that smothered the plate was extremely flavorful and unlike any chile I've experienced before. The nachos were true to the original style. Each bite had the full experience. Great little spot for dinner.
