“Say hi to the chef as you enter!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Interesting place. You enter through the kitchen. The place is a bit smallish and a bit dark. Dark because there were not many lights and the candles create a nice atmosphere but hard to read the menu. The menu is short but the food we had was good. All organic, so don't as for a diet coke. It, I guess, it is not organic. All in all it was a nice place with good food and good service. Bring cash. No credit cards accepted here. They are not organic enough either I guess! Enjoy!

“Delightful Dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We were there early and we're seated promptly. Old church, wine bottles, lit candles, fresh roses...lovely!
We ordered the cornbread, apple & cheese quesadillas for appetizers and found them both good. We had the special that night of beef stew. It was so delicious! It was so much more than a stew with a wonderful flavor pallet. Chicken tacos were served with a orange cabbage slaw that was good. We would return to try several other dishes.

“A Rare Culinary Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

It was a memorable culinary and sensory experience! Customers are led through the kitchen to create an anticipatory sensation of good things to come. It is a relatively small restaurant with an intimate atmossphere. We ordered Braised Local Beef Short Ribs for apetizer and a Grilled Ruby Rainbow trout. Both were prepared just right. This is an experience visitors to Taos ought not miss!

“Romantic and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

You enter through the kitchen so you get a glimpse of where the magic happens. The service was great and so was the food. I had wild boar tenderloin and local bolita beans. My wife had beef brisket tacos and we shared a wilted spinach salad. They served chilled water from old wine bottles, there are candles on each table and the atmosphere is warm and intimate.

“Amazing food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

This was one of the best meals I've had in a while. The salad with pomegranate seeds, pecans, local honey and warm goat cheese was delicious, trout was perfectly cooked, the quinoa-piñon fritter amazing... and the apple cake dessert with vanilla ice cream was a perfect ending to the meal. The service was excellent. We would definitely go out of our way to return. Not to be missed if you are in the Taos area.
