It was a great evening of dinning in El Prado. We were able to eat outside and have some Mexican food with a cousin I had not seen in 45 years. Great night

The food was amazing, and the little restaurant was so charming. It's a small, intimate place. We couldn't get in at night because it was so popular, so we went in the next day. It was a great experience. I gave it four stars instead...More

I was taken here for my birthday, and had a delicious enchilada plate with blue corn tortillas. Service was great, quick, attentive, but not overbearing. Seating is somewhat limited, but definitely worth the wait.

Both my husband and I enjoyed our experience in Sept. 2016. I ordered the chili rellenos: I received 2 rellenos made with anaheim peppers accompanied with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes drenched in very mild red chili sauce (all delicious). The rellenos were stuffed with...More

We spend every summer in Taos. Visit Orlando's 4 to 5 times each year. Traditional New Mexican cuisine. Well done and consistent. Creative, no......traditional, yes. We will always visit.

No. Orlandos does not take reservations. It's best to go early because it's very popular.
