In summer you sit on a covered patio looking straight at the Sandia Mountains and they are right there so close - beyond beautiful. The food is uniquely delicious and it always seems healthy. Lots of greens mixed with my pasta - yum!

It isn't fancy and actually rather casual but we had a fabulous time from start to finish. The hostess was lovely, our wine was great and our food amazing....I can't say enough about the setting. Ask for a table at the edge so your view...More

We are located in the El Torreon Hacienda built in 1847 which reflects our philosophy, our food and the historical influences of Taos. From June - September we have patio seating under a tent with twinkle lights and the most incredible view of Taos Mountain.
