Our waitress was great, but everything else terrible. Long wait, burgers over cooked and lacking what they were supposed to come with, goulash had tough meat and overspiced with paprika. The bread the goulash came with was tasty. To be fair, they were crowded, but...More

The Bavarian restaurant is one of the best!! Authentic German food and beer. Love it. Always eat there when in Taos Ski Valley. Thomas and his wife and staff are super. Highly recommend the Bavarian. Were there for Octoberfest. Such fun!!!

Drove up to the ski area to see the mountain views and found this delightful Bavarian restaurant. The food was delicious - sauerkraut was better than in Germany! We were able to sit on the deck in the beautiful fall sunshine surrounded by the Alps....More

You wouldn't expect to find good German food in the mountains above Taos but that's exactly what you will find at the Bavarian! There's a patio on the front of the restaurant that looks directly at the mountain and the ski runs. When you enter...More

Tomas has been running this place for years and it is always fantastic. The best deck in the ski valley for food, drinks, sunshine and people watching. You don't have to be skiing to enjoy it. It's open in summer as well and you can...More

Beware of the long steep drive on a dirt road that finally leads to this rather authentic looking Bavarian chalet. Both the patio and the interior follow through with the theme. Unfortunately that's where it ends. The Wiener schnitzel might have been a schnitzel but...More

We eat here weekly summer and winter. Food is usually great. Service is variable. If you go early on Saturday or Sunday, before noon, all things will be good. If it is between 1-3, be prepared for a wait and cranky waitstaff. There are not...More

This place is the real deal. Food, Beer, the building designed like a true pub in the Alps. Even the staff wear authentic clothing. Go with an appetite because the food is plentiful and oh so delicious. Priced right too. Drawback is the restaurant is...More

We went in the summer and drove up. It was a climb but worth it. The open chairlift runs from in front of Bavarian. Lovely facility with Swiss chalet architecture. Main area has logs, sheep skins to sit on, and fireplace. Outside has large wooden...More

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...More

I believe they open at 5:30 pm on Sundays not sure what time they close. On the Shuttle I would call them to find out, I think they will pick you up at the Airport if you are staying there but don't think they will pick you... More
