The food and service are very good. It's a small restaurant with only 6 tables inside but has a large patio.

I had the shrimp enchiladas with chipotle cream sauce and OMG. Best thing I've probably ever had! We are going back tonight and I'm having the same dish. Husband had the combination plate and it was also delicious! Great food and servers were great too!!

La Cueva was a surprising treat during a brief visit to Taos. I take or leave mole sauce, but theirs was excellent. The beans were seasoned perfectly and the vegetarian tacos were perfecto. Of all the places we ate during a brief visit to Santa...More
