“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Toward the end of our first week ever in Taos we stumbled upon the Trading Post Cafe. It may not look like much from the outside, but once inside, the local ambiance reverberates off the walls decorated with colorful quilts. The food was truly wonderful... so good, in fact, that we returned for lunch the next day. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant and professional. It's a charming spot and was one of our best meals in Taos.

“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Loved the ambience, great menu, beautiful decor. One complaint, pasta was not a denta.. I got the chicken piccata. My husband loved the mussels. We will go back.

“Superb Dining Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Great atmosphere with stunning quilts (works of art) hung throughout the restaurant walls! The food was fresh, delicious and memorable! The service attentive and helpful. I ordered the Nicoise Salad with Tuna - medium rare - Wow!!!! So delicious. If you have to choose one place to eat in Taos - pick this place!!!!

“Loved this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

They were quite busy when my kids, husband and I walked in but we were immediately seated and attended to. The waitstaff was lovely and took the time to listen to my children's requests. The food was fresh and delicious. The owner/chef was so friendly when my children attempted to speak French with her. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

“Excellent Dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Both times we have eaten there, food and service have been excellent. Nicely decorated and quiet place. Food is a little on the pricey side, but well worth it.
