We happened on Orlando's after rain changed ourplans, and the food and service were excellent. Well deserved designationas one of Taos/ElPrado's most popular. Blue corn enchiladas tasty, and service fast and efficient.

Everything that we ordered was fantastic. Obviously, food and service are key to a good review and this place delivered on both. We sat inside, but patio seating is also available. If I find myself in Taos again, I would definitely revisit!

The food is not Tex-Mex, but New Mexican. They use lots of chili powder. It was good so leave your mind open to the experience. The guacamole was very good. Please note that they do not open until 5 p.m.

I'd love to try other New Mexican restaurants in Taos, but I just can't make a trip without eating at Orlando's. Delicious! Great, friendly service. Love to sit in the shaded patio area. Haven't had anything I didn't love! Shrimp & chile relleno, blue corn...More

It's not. We were bummed! We found other restaurants that are. Bella's, Martyr's & La Cueva. Good Luck. We're coming down with our pooches in June 2017. Also, I read that Bent's Cafe allows dogs on the patio.
