We have been regular customers of Antonio's for the 11 years it has been open. So disappointed that it is closed. The owners, Sarah and Antonio Matus, opened an Antonio's in Longmont, Co last year and have now moved there permanently. We have lost a wonderful dining spot in Taos. Never had a bad meal there and the food was... More

I am a guacamole aficianado, and can say without any qualification that Antonio's has without doubt the BEST guacamole anywhere in the world. I have made my own, and tried many others, but there's some terrific mix of avocado, and tangy, fresh, flavor, that makes this one a "head and shoulders" standout above the rest. This is a nice place... More

We visited Antonio's while our vacations in Taos and the experience was very good! The food is authentic, well cooked, good presentation and great flavor. Everything our family ordered that day was tasty. Proof that Mexican food in New Mexico is as authentic and tasty as it gets! The service also was very attentive and the guy that took care... More

My fiance and I were looking for a place to eat after a long day of skiing. We ran across Antonio's as we were driving around Taos. It's in a pretty little setting with a courtyard and a good amount of public parking in front. We were seated immediately (without reservations). We ordered a pitcher of strawberry margaritas (not too... More

My husband and I weren't very impressed with the Taos plaza, and found ourselves drawn to this courtyard restaurant for a quick bite to eat. I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh guacamole, made right there by our table. You have to understand, they don't do that here in Seattle, and its hard to find a good guacamole. The black...

We did not have reservations on a busy night. We were seated pretty fast and our order was also taken quickly. It took very long to get our food, and many apologies were given. The food was really good; but we were starving by the time we got it.

Dear,"We did not have reservations on a busy night." We are truly sorry to hear that your food took longer than anticipaited. Servers tend to get the Poor service staple for something completely out of their control. If your server had a full section and had larger parties prior to your table and we fit you in, we droppped the... More

We had made a reservation at Antonio's prior to our trip, based on reviews and on the menu posted on the restaurant's website. While we were looking forward to a good meal, Antonio's exceeded our expectations. The Chile Rellenos en Nogada were amazingly delicious, as was the tortilla soup. The prickly pear margarita was absolutely the best I've ever had.... More
