“Wienerschnitzel in New Mexico”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

This German themed restaurant is located a fair drive from the Taos Ski Valley base. It is cheerfully decorated to replicate a Bavarian restaurant - wooden painted walls and a vaulted ceiling. You even sit on a sheep skin. And the restaurant's staff is cheerful and very helpful, dressed in location specific attire. There is a great selection of German beers and wines and a German themed menu.

We split a quite good spinach salad, but the rest of he meal was very average. The Schnitzel was less than average, and the strudel for dessert was quite heavy. With limited dining option in TSV it is worth consideration, but we are not rushing back.

“Always Amazing”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

I have eaten here many times, both in winter and summer, and it is so familiar that I forgot to ever write a review - but when sitting out on the deck on a totally spectacular day last week I finally remembered that I have to write a review about this place. On a good winter day (of which there are many in Taos) there is no place in the entire world of skiing that is more inviting than the Bavarian. I have skied and eaten all over the world, and this place, time after time, is tops. All the locals go regularly and knowing visitors hit it too. Perfect setting, perfect ambiance - everything that's great about skiing and eating is all to be found here. Don't miss it. Its also great at dinner in both summer and winter. A magical place in all respects. Thanks Thomas and Bavarian crew. You are the best!

“Another awesome experience”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Took my family to the Bavarian for dinner for their first visit to Taos. As with our previous visit everything was wonderful, my mother really enjoyed the decor as she said it reminded her of being back in Germany. As far as the food goes everything was great, couldn't have been any better of an experience.

“What a joke”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

We made reservations for Christmas Eve with Shannon a week before our trip and I had to give her a credit card with a 48 hour cancellation. She said there would be a shuttle at the guard shack to take us up to the restaurant at 8pm. We called at 645 and said we could go early and have some drinks but the person that answered the phone said no, just wait at the guard shack and the driver will be there at 8pm so we went and bought some time and waited at the Stray Dog until 755pm and walked over to the guard shack. We waited until 815 in 15 degrees and no shuttle. We called and the lady said just a few more minutes and he would be there. We waited a few more minutes and called again and no answer then called again and the lady said they weren't really sure where the driver was and she had not seen him all evening. About 840 we finally gave up and walked to the Blonde Bear and had our Christmas Eve dinner there and were treated very nicely. We had to call and cancel our credit card as we had gotten so many conflicting stories, we just did not want to take any chances. So, our advice is don't give them your credit card and take a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Supposedly it is a nice place if you can get there. We won't ever try it.

Was here because of a wedding event. The reception was also held at The Bavarian and they catered it. The food was amazing. The employees were very friendly and helpful.
