My wife and I return here each time we visit Taos. It’s the best. Best fresh cooked food, best variety on the menu, best atmosphere (welcoming, inviting, makes you want to stay and enjoy your meal and company).

We loved this restaurant a la other review. Scott well deserved accolades as chef owner for many years. Menu limited but all excellent. Halibut superb as was beef and chicken. So glad we came to this wonderful restaurant.

Went to this restaurant on a Saturday evening and was disappointed. Ordered a Thai curry-based, shrimp dish which was too hot (not advertised as being hot), and very small, low-grade shrimp. My boyfriend had a pork tenderloin dish which was much better in quality and...More

This place is the best kept secret in Taos. When you go, take your time and savor every bite, every moment. Order dessert. Talk to the staff. Indulge in the chocolate. Restaurants like this let us live our lives to the fullest!
