Had a wonderful evening enjoying wine and appetizers. Great place to relax and enjoy drinks. Service was great and the music wasn't too loud. Great calamari but the only disappointment was the sushi. It was very average. They really need to remove it from the menu. All in all great place!!!

Terrible! Small-very small-portions. The chopped "salad" was served on a 6"x6" plate with minuscule rows of food, greens were extra $. Entrees were very average in flavor and quality, yet quite pricey. The duck was nearly flavorless. The server hovered and interrupted us repeatedly. Although we've been to Eolus numerous times in the past, we won't dine there again, nor... More

Highly recommend! It is a bit on the pricy end, but excellent service and the food is incredible. Who would think of lobster on a stick. Lobster Corndog, Awesome! And gourmet! We split the Surf and Turf and it was perfect. The kitchen split it for us for a small charge. Plenty for us. With a nice French Bordeaux!

We were greeted and sat immediately. Our server was friendly, but not knowledgeable on the menu. She had to run to the back a few times to get an answer. Normally this wouldn't be a deal, but for the prices you pay here, the expectation bar is set pretty high. The food was good, not great (the presentation was beautiful).... More

This is obviously a well managed restaurant. The servers are attentive without being intrusive, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Great location in downtown Durango near lots of other restaurants & bars.

Ambiance was lovely. Service exceptional. And the food was well beyond our expectations. This was our first dining experience here and look forward to more in the future.

Chose this place to celebrate my partner's birthday during our USA trip. Nice surroundings plus very attentive service. The food really was top quality (which is reflected in the prices). Great cocktails too.

When I first visited Durango this spring looking for a home, I stumbled upon Eolus. I had just come in on a late flight and was really hungry. I walked in and was greeted by James, one of the owners. He explained, very apologetically, that the kitchen had closed. What he did next amazed me. He recommended another restaurant down... More

Stopped in Durango during our travels and picked a restaurant at random. Couldn't have been luckier. Their Sushi was delicious and it was only the introduction to their main course. The surf and turf was one of the best beef fillet/lobster combos I've ever had. A must stop.
