The La Cocina de Taos is a pleasant but not at all fancy sit-down restaurant on the south end of Taos. The prices were reasonable and the food was above average. I would return.

The food and the service have always been very good. The Chicken Fried steak is always good. Their enchilada and Tamale dinners are excellent as well as their red and green chili sauces.
