Not too bad while skiing. We sat indoors, I found outdoors to be a little more lively, but not a problem. Meals weren't bad, a little expensive for what they were for lunch, but considering it's on the backside of the mountatin during spring break ski season...you pay it. Good selection of beers and wine is why you come, food is about average I'd say. If you're in a hurry just stick with the Phoienix Grill which is right in front. If you want sit and chill for a bit with a cold beer head to the Bavarian. Not sure I'd go back while skiing, I guess I'm more of a bar food type person when it comes to eating and skiing at the same time, but still not too bad.

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.

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!

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.
