Wow! What a find in the middle of northern New Mexico! If you love beer, you should visit solely for the Andech's - tasty, tasty! The food was very well prepared - the spaetzle (noodles/dumplings) were excellent and the wurst was superior - seemed to be first quality. Excellent service (even though the place was PACKED on 4th of July).... More

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... More

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...

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... More

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.

Didn't stay here, but ate lunch and found the food to be quite good. Our service was lacking as they were short staffed for the day after Christmas, which is understandable if employees took a vacation themselves I suppose. Otherwise would have been 4 Stars. I had the Goulaschuppe (Goulash soup), spatzle and weinerschnitzel. My wife had a 'Bavarian Burger'... More
