Located at the base of the Taos Ski Valley lift #4, The Bavarian is perfectly situated to offer you're due reward after a day of physical exercise. We came here in the summer after hiking to Williams' Lake, but I can imagine it's a delight...More

The perfect spot for that end of the hike rest and beer. Lounge outdoors or in. They serve dinner starting at 5:30 pm.

I happened to have lunch there with a friend who has German roots and she was surprised by the authenticity. It was a great meal that helped you keep going for an afternoon back on the slopes. And the great beers didn't hurt either! We...More

They need to improve the ordering process. Charge by the person serve by the person or charge by the couple serve by the couple. Our waitress was new to the restaurant and was charming. However the menu was not helpful. The food is good. And...More

We arrived 6 minutes after they stop serving lunch. They have a two hour change over between lunch and dinner and only offer goulasche soupa and pretzels during this time. The four of us ordered a cup of the soupa and pretzels. My daughter wanted...More
