“Great Addition to Taos Restaurant Scene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

We were long-time customers of the previous restaurant (Antonio's) at this location. We visited Bella's for the first time a couple of nights ago and we were truly delighted. Great atmosphere, especially the patio...perhaps the best in Taos. And the food...wonderful. We had our favorite appetizer, the guacamole made at table side. I had a chicken burrito with green chile, to check out how they do on the basics. My wife had the Chile en Nogada. Both were superb. Finished off with a fried banana sundae. No doubt about it...we'll make this a regular spot here in town.

“Great New Mexican Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

For new Mexican cuisine, Bella's is a must. The food and service is excellent. Go for the guacamole, which is prepared at your table. They have a nice outdoor patio if you feel like dining outside. I've had the chile rellenos and the chile relleno burrito and both were great.

“Nice find in Taos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Family was looking for an authentic meal in Taos. Not sure if I'd call it absolutely authentic, but an above average meal. Good price. Nice setting in courtyard. Helpful waitstaff. I would definitely recommend it.

“Great northern New Mexican food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

I didn't expect to find such good New Mexican food in Taos, but Bella's is it! Very good green and red chile enchiladas. The owners are so welcoming and eager to please. We thoroughly enjoyed our last meal in NM on our way north. Prices are very reasonable.

“Treasure In Taos - Best Mexican Food in New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

By far the best Mexican food ever. Traveling with family for 1 week staying in Santa Fe. So disappointed with Santa Fe restaurants, pretentious, overpriced with poor service. Stumbled upon Bella, recently opened Mexican Grill in Taos. Seated in the prettiest courtyard, excellent service, great menu and Joaquin was the most friendly knowledgeable host. Fresh guacamole made at the table, Chile Negrado stuffed poblano with beef, tomato, almonds, walnuts and pomengrate. Yummm!! Grilled corn with melted cheese, chili, just like the Mexican markets. Fajitas well seasoned. Wine and special margaritas, no full bar license yet. Great margaritas though. Highly recommend. A must try.
