After riding the chairlift up and hiking down,we stopped in at the Bavarian for lunch. It looks like a swiss chalet with a lovely outside deck with umbrellas. The servers were dressed in Swiss garb. Very cute. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was quite...More

Enjoyed a wonderful upscale dinner, served family style prior to a Young Artist Concert from the Taos School of Music. The food was fabulous and the music divine. If you are going anytime soon, allow extra time for the drive as much of the road...More

We took out-of-town guests to The Bavarian for a summer lunch. The deck was only partially set up. With all the outside available tables filled we were forced to eat inside despite the beautiful afternoon weather. Food was adequate, but the service was VERY slow....More

After a lovely hike down from the top of the ski lift, be sure to treat yourself to a wonderful pretzel--which was crispy and salty on the outside and warm on the inside. I'm not sure about the rest of the menu, since we had...More

The deck at the Bavarian is the spot after a hike to Williams Lake or Wheeler Peak. It is equally delightful during ski season according to my husband. Great service, amazing food -- most ski resorts sock it to you for not very good food...More

There are some very good dishes at this Alpine style restaurant, with perhaps the spätzle at the top of the list, but goulash soup (though the bread accompanying it was pretty ordinary) and hotdogs were also pretty good. Service was formulaic.

We just had a few beers which were pretty good. The hot pretzels was really stale. I'm sure their other food is good.

Who knew the Taos Ski Valley would be the home of an amazing, authentic German restaurant?. Everything is so well prepared and delicious. Beautiful mountain views, and great beer. We enjoyed their German beer flight. Perfect on a sunny summer afternoon as well as the...More

After hiking Wheeler Peak with my son and our dog, we were excited to eat at The Bavarian. Our excitement quickly evaporated when we learned that The Bavarian is not dog friendly inside or on the deck. They had a few lounge chairs below the...More
