What an amazing quaint restaurant. The food was delicious and prepared with a degree of perfection I have not experienced in a while. I enjoyed a homemade vegetable soup that was served hot. The base was a bean or pea with chunks of vegetables. I...More

While the menu is limited it is all very good. On our recent visit our group had four different entrees and all were excellent. It is a funky but pleasant atmosphere. Due to the small size it is normally very peaceful. A great place to...More

Beautiful room....owner does the heavy lifting....chef is very strong with special attention to presentation. Menu limited.....each dish special. A Taos treasure. Don't miss this one.

This place is the best kept secret in Taos. When you go, take your time and savor every bite, every moment. Order dessert. Talk to the staff. Indulge in the chocolate. Restaurants like this let us live our lives to the fullest!

As recommended by the guide sources, I made a reservation, but it really was not necessary. The host was very friendly and efficient, but the house salad was half filled with spoiled lettuces. The curry shrimp was tasty, but the ingredients were mushy and overcooked.

Saw good reviews, so we went to dinner there. The surroundings are a bit funky and the place is modestly adorned, so our expectations were cautious. There is an Asian influence to the menu as you can order a Thai dish or an all American...More

1st I would say you MOST LIKELY do not need a reservation because this place is a DUD. Very pricey we had 3 glasses of wine and 2 appetizers (we had asparagus soup and some type of kabob ) and it cost over 80.00. Nothing...More
