They book out quickly so must make reservations way in advance. They take the kiddos on a scavenger hunt while the adults enjoy a fantastic meal served by the chef him self. This is a must do while in ski valley.

This is a cute feel like you are in Europe. It is Bavarian style with great outside seating, which is where you have to sit. Enjoy the fondue, soups, German delights and beer. This is a really cool place to relax, especially after skiing.

Our goal for the day was to hike to Williams Lake and treat ourselves with a well deserved beer and sausage at the Bavarian Restaurant. The hike was worth the view but the prize did not happen. Sorry No sausage served from 3;00 - 530....More

We have loved the Bavarian ever since we watched it go up in 1995. It is truly a great feature of Taos Ski Valley. We eat there AND DRINK THEIR WONDERFUL GERMAN BEER every chance we get. Although it has changed hands since the original...More
