Nestled at the base of stunning Kachina Peak above the European-style village of Taos Ski Valley, The Bavarian Lodge & Restaurant offers guests the comfort and charm of an authentic alpine ski alm amid the majesty of New Mexico's storied Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The Bavarian provides ski-in/ski-out convenience while dispensing Old World hospitality. Four spacious guest suites, two with full kitchens, accommodate parties large and small, and the nationally acclaimed restaurant serves up Bavarian specialties on its sunny outdoor deck or in the cozy dining room.In addition to the lodge's suites, The Bavarian now offers its new Chalets, a carefully phased expansion.

Taos and the Bavarian are always amazing - but on a sunny day - and regardless the temperature (if the wind is low) - sitting out on the Bavarian deck eating huge warm pretzels and drinking wine or beer looking up at the amazing Kachina Peak - well, it doesn't get better than this folks. Great music (lots of Marley) and everyone is your friend. Special shout out to Alicia - her smile and welcome will warm you up on the coldest of days! Don't go near Taos without hitting the Bavarian. I've skied all over the world, and this is the best!

Located two miles beyond the Taos Ski Valley Resort, the Bavaria Inn is definitely a destination place ... but worth the effort. Authentic German in every way: atmosphere, dress, menu, beer and hospitality. I had jagerschnitzel with mashed potatoes smother in thick mushroom gravy with red cabbage. Terrific! And the beer, all German, was outstanding. I would have liked to spend several hours there soaking up the atmosphere in the restaurant, but driving back down the mountain put a damper on that.

The food here is good (as is all the food on the mountain) but the place really has a lot of character/atmosphere that makes it worth a visit. The structure is made of wooden beams and the decor is rustic (stuffed animals, wooden tables, lambskin throws on the bench seats, costumed waitresses). It makes for a fun meal on the ski slopes.

I have eaten here twice in two years. Last year, I had sausages and beer. This year, it was a burger and fries and beer. Maybe I am just too American because I preferred the burger, which was better than average. Oh, man, the location is superb. Dress warmly if you sit outside and bring sunscreen. Your beer will not get warm, and it is really good. Service was marvelous, even with the huge crowd. My hat is off to those hard-working servers. I will gladly return.

Tuesday is Fondue night at the Bavarian. We ordered both beef and cheese, which made for a BIG meal. We couldn't have had better service or food. If you want to experience a European tradition at Taos Ski Valley, then book a table for Tuesday's Fondue Night. The staff is very friendly and efficient.

My teenage twins and I had an early dinner at The Bavarian in late July. Everything we ordered was delicious and reasonably priced. Although none of us are fans of German food, we all found something good to eat. The only downside is that the road up to the restaurant is dirt (unpaved) and super pot-holey.

I was looking forward to an order of the Goulash , Wiener Schnitzel is a popular part of Viennese cuisine. , however they don't serve the veal but a pork version. The Goulash was too meaty, no potatoes or vegetables. I was very disappointed and to top it off the service was very slow.

We did not stay in the lodge, but we ate here twice - lunch and dinner. Lunch was outside on the patio with a stunning view of the mountain. Dinner was inside where we could enjoy the ambiance. The staff and the food was excellent both times. They offer a shuttle service from Taos Ski Valley and that was much appreciated. The inside is slightly dated, but well worth the visit!

I don't have to go to Austria, I can get that good old feeling of being in a Pension in Austria right here in Taos New Mexico! Just so awesome. Expensive. But memories in the making...dinner was great, the room was better.
