My lovely Peruvian girlfriend was on her maiden trip to Taos and we arrived starving! After literally dropping( but not unpacking) our bags at our B & B, we went searching for this restaurant. When I found it, the adjoining parking lot was full and...More

If this restaurant were close to my home town, I'd be there frequently. Every bite (the mussels), the wine selection, the homemade bread...perfect.

Interesting ambiance, a bit Bohemian perhaps, but borderline too cold (late November) for comfort. Definitely could be warmer inside, maybe it does warm up later in the evening. Good beer list as previous reviewer mentions, limited wine offerings. The nuts and olives appetizer was tasty...More

We have several good things to report as well as a few shortcomings. First, expect a great beer and wine list. There are many fantastic German and Belgian beers to choose from and a very reasonably priced, though short, wine list. As for starters, we...More

We had long wanted to dine at this quirky little place. We took the opportunity late summer 2015. As others have stated it is Scott that makes this place. It is like you are at the chef's table. The halibut was very well prepared but...More
