You WILL need a dinner reservation to dine here, as it's a small space, but definitely worth the effort to secure a seating. Alys (think Alice) does a prix fix full-course set menu of well-prepared high-quality items. I have eaten here twice in the past 8 months, and once before she moved her operation here from Walsenberg. The bistro steak and the rack of lamb are excellent. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. It's a gathering place for locals and friends of locals (like me). Come enjoy Alys' food art and the local art she exhibits in the dining area--you'll have a grand time!

I have tried on previous trips to eat at Alys, and was always too late to get a reservation! Alys' Restaurant is in a remodeled home, wood floors, artwork on the walls, open yet intimate. The dinner options were excellent. There is no menu, as the waiters just tell you the main courses for that day. It is nice to have a mean where each entrée has sides appropriate to the meal. Salad or soup are included - the French Onion was awesome. I chose the salmon - the portion was quite generous so I took the rest home for the next night! Dessert and coffee are also included in the price. The crème brulee was already gone, so we chose tiramisu. Excellent! Can't wait for our next trip to La Veta!

On a weekend away to La Veta, we phoned/left messages for Alys. It was a 'last minute' decision
for the six of us, three couples from Denver, Co area. She let us know...''only able to offer
3 choices, (our) short notice." Homey, excellent meals and personal history and contact
w/owner was enriching. She has a vast array of wine, and 2 bottles served us well. 10/10,
all categories!!

Service excellent. Presentation Excellent. Portions generous and the taste was plate cleaning good. Try the moscato wine from Italy. Desert was shamefully good. This restaurant is in the owners home. Nice friendly hostess - the owner/chef.

Alys' menu options and home-made dishes complemented the small gallery-style decor, and the price was certainly right. We would go back in a minute!
