Food was awesome. The beer was cold. Hard liquor is not available. Wife had an aguave margarita. She went totally nuts after that. I am still trying to recover. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Far from fancy and very reasonably priced. Don't know their policy on nudity. Great place!

Truly a taste of authentic New Mexican cuisine with its delicious pinto beans, creamy gauc and spicy good salsa. My shrimp tacos were amazing and the mole chicken has a sassy kick. Not a place to come for a canned retail atmosphere but you can’t beat it for fantastic food! This place is the real deal.

My wife and I shared a combination fajita platter. The spices were just right. The chicken was super tender. The steak was ok. The beer is cold and served in a cold glass. The outside of the cafe needs some work but the patio was great. Recommend to anyone looking for a tasty meal in Taos,

The food, service, and ambiance here were all excellent. While not quite five star food, ti was very close and the cool little dining room and low key but very friendly service push this one into the top category. Parking can be tough though. However, it's only a block off the Taos plaza, so if you're already strolling about it's easily accessible. Value is excellent for Taos.

Touring some cities in NM and came to beautiful Taos. Our daughter had done the same and recommended La Cueva. We trusted her and for good reason. Outstanding food. Tacos, enchiladas, Chile rellenos, rice, beans: all delicious. Sitting outdoors and drinking a lager to cool me down from the heat - both sun and food. Great service from Juan. Taos winner.
