This is probably my favorite restaurant any where! We have visited here several times. The restaurant is celebrating their 50th anniversary. The terraced patio under the trees is the best place to eat. Such a nice atmosphere. The food is northern New Mexican style and delicious. Margaritas were good too. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The strolling musician... More

This is an excellent restaurant - very New Mexico style food. The car park is huge and we'd booked in advance. The place is very popular. From the outside it looks small and not particularly special ... Plenty of space inside with different room and covered terraces to the rear. Great menu choices. Good efficient service and lovely food. Whilst... More

This is an institution restaurants in a charming village which has been in operation for fifty years with very little changes in the menu and settings. And for good reasons: the building and decor are charming and the food constantly very good. It is a typical new mexican fare, most of the offering with red chile with, in Chimayo is... More

Have visited several times, but tonight food was cold, soup very salty, poor service. Margaritas were watery. Environment was not conducive to a pleasant meal as gnats were numerous and annoying.

One of the best places in New Mexico and well worth multiple visits! I had the combination picante platter which had a bit of everything include their carne adavado, tamale and cheese enchilada smothered in red hot chili. So good!

Wonderful northern New Mexico Resteraunt. Beautiful atmosphere. Delicious northern NM food. Can dine inside or out on the terrace. Staff was friendly and attentive. I would recommend reservations. Give yourself plenty of time if you are driving north from Santa fe. Beautiful 25 minute drive to Resteraunt. Never get tired of eating there.

We had a wonderful lunch with another couple at this restaurant last week. About half of their seating is outdoors and shaded. Lunch was great with some of the best sopapillas we had all week.

Celebrating their 50 year anniversary. This is always a favorite place of our when visiting the Santa Fe/Taos area. We arrived after 1 and the crowd was still heavy! We sat on one of the outside patios which was great....such nice cool weather for August and yes, there are huge umbrellas to shade the sun! We started with a prickly... More

Meal was excellent, service excellent, margarita's excellent!!! The restaurant had just started taking reservations but we did not have one (party of four). Wait was about 20 minutes but well worth it. From the tortilla chips to sopapillas, with a couple of margaritas thrown in, to the delicious flan, we had a wonderful lunch. Plentiful parking as well.
