Very nice atmosphere with tasty food. They worked very hard to serve my family while they had a rush of spring breakers to feed.

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch when we first arrived. We both had the tomato basil soup and the cheese sandwich. Delicious comfort food after a long drive. We liked it so much we stopped for lunch on our way out of town. She had the caprese sandwich and I had the eggplant sandwich. The soup was... More

This is a must visit for me every time I pass through Taos. Never once have I been disappointed. Even dined next to Julia Roberts once. This particular visit I met a friend whom I hadn't seen in many years to rendezvous for lunch. Now this time of year (end of September) I usually go for the front patio, great... More

We were two couples at Renato's for lunch. Two of us had sandwiches and two (the husbands) had full meals. Our server was fun and efficient, Renato was his charming self, and our food was delicious.

We stopped here for coffee and snacks but felt a bit out of place since this is more of a restaurant than coffee spot. Everything we got was wonderful and we wouldn't hestiate to go back!

I try to go to a spot several times before reviewing. Last night was my third time and like the other times I enjoyed the food and casual setting. My wife has vegetarian friends and she always includes Renato in her list of possible meeting spots for friends from out of town because they have hearty meals to satisfy everyone.... More

Trying to find a place to park and eat in Taos at 8pm on a Thursday night. Found a car par and this restaurant was the closest. We made a seriously bad choice. Looked okay from the outside in the dark, and to be fair it was clean and tidy on the inside. However, only two tables occupied. The diners... More

driving down the main street we spied a nice looking patio near the road front so we decided to stop in for lunch and give it a try. Even though we were on top of the street, the adobe wall and plant life made it feel as though we were not and it made people watching fun. The patio was... More

A large group of us went here on the recommendation of one of our members. The poor waiter seemed stressed by the prospect of serving 9 of us. He knew little about the wine selection. The food was good but not exceptional. A few of us returned the next day for lunch as it was very close to our hotel.... More
