The food and the service have always been very good. The Chicken Fried steak is always good. Their enchilada and Tamale dinners are excellent as well as their red and green chili sauces.

This family owned restaurant provided a very nice atmosphere with good local food. We had a large group and were served promptly and had good service. The restaurant also had a collection of excellent local art on display that also added to the experience.

If you want authentic Mexican food, you won't go wrong by eating here. It's on the south end of Taos. The waitress said the cook is like her grandmother...using old Mexican recipes to create a wonder meal.

A local in Taos recommended La Cocina to us so we stopped there for dinner. The food was very good, but a little bit on the expensive side. We really enjoyed the cookie we got there that was as big as your face!
