My wife and I loved this little gem of a restaurant. Everything was wonderful. Chips and salsa with guacamole was a perfect start. Tortilla soup was an excellent start before the ceviche and fish and chips arrived. Don’t pass this place up. There’s plenty of...More

From the outside you might be tempted to bypass this special place, but don't. Our server recommended the special and we weren't disappointed, the mole was outstanding. The little bit of spicy was perfect with a cold beer.

A local recommended this cafe for fresh New Mexican food and we enjoyed it so much, we ate here twice during our stay in Taos. Very friendly service, reasonable prices and delicious food! Highly recommend the outside patio during lunch.

Great food! Don't let the exterior look keep you away. The place is very small but the food and service are really good. We had the rellenos and their fish and chips. Both were very tastey. Recommended!

This restaurant looks awful from the outside, and I wouldn't have tried it if not for the great reviews. It's a very old, tiny building that only seats 12. There is seating outside, but it was too cold to sit outside for our meal. The...More
