We have been lucky enough to eat at ACEQ during winter ski vacations for the past three years. We visited in late January and it was our first visit since the "remodel" and since new ownership. The remodeled space is awesome. The menu was smaller than in the past. The owner and his "party" of guests were sitting two tables... More

Just WOW. Unbelievable food & an unbelievable staff. Our food was so creative and flat-out delicious. The chef stopped by our table and described each dish and was such a delightful man! A must if you're anywhere near Taos.

So this turned out to be a very creative and lovely meal. We just popped in early without a reservation and they gave us a great table for 4. The place was packed by the time we left.

We LOVED our dining experience at ACEQ. The duck confit salad was as good as it gets as was the lemon curd dessert. We also really enjoyed the salmon and the tomato bisque.

WE live just up the road from ACEQ and break down and go there every four months or so. The ambiance is fine.

It's been a number of years that ACEQ... More

Staying at The Blake just up the road at Taos Ski Valley and the friendly hausmeister (code for best-ever front desk people) suggested ACEQ and even more important - the bison tacos! Very relaxed, nice staff, felt very at home.

Loved the atmosphere, baby/toddler friendly. High chairs available. Great selection of wine and beer, and the staff was knowledgeable about the choices. Food was delicious and not huge portions.

Awesome food!! Great place. Everything was great!! Nice owners and great staff. Need a reservation on the weekend. You won't be sorry. Best place in Arroyo Seco and maybe the best in Taos area in our opinion.
