Our guacamole is the perfect portion at a perfect price. Prepared at your table all fresh ingredients served with homemade corn chips and our delicious homemade salsa with just the right spiciness IT CAN'T GET BETTER THAN THAT! More

The service, food and value made for a nice evening in this upscale mexican restaurant. Our B&B hosts recommended that we order the table side prepared guacamole and salsa. Then split the entree. They were right as the portions are large. The paella and the barbacoa were really good. At the end of our meal Chef Antonio came to our... More

Excellent Mexican food, I was surprised by just how wonderful the food was. My favorite meal not just in Taos, but in New Mexico.

Well the food was great...get the barbacoa and the guacamole if you can. However don't be surprised if they try to upsell you. Saw a manager yell at an employee, but other than that it was a pretty nice lunch.

An unpretentious and very welcoming establishment, Antonio's is all about the food - and what excellent dishes! The guacamole is made fresh at the table. The Chile Relleno is unusual and a very rich and delicious dish. We also enjoyed a very succulent a juicy roast pork in banana leaves. The portions are very generous, we had enough to take... More

I had the Sangria drink, I also ate the fish Tacos, again delish. The ambiance was terrific, like stepping back in time. The restaurant was in a 350 year old house with a beautiful water fountain in the middle of the patio, just great for relaxing and eating wonderful food.

We asked Louis & Katherine, owners of the Adobe & Pines Inn, Taos, New Mexico, for a recommendation. Antonio's A Taste of Mexico was one of the places they suggested. We loved it. The atmosphere was cozy and the wait staff attentive. We shared the house made guacamole with chips and salsa. Our seafood entree was very good.

I ate dinner here and enjoyed their interesting take on Mexican food. The menu featured some common dishes such as steak fajitas, but many of them have a unique spin. Many of the dishes are made with different fruits and flavors that are not seen on normal Mexican menus.

Antonio's has a large front patio with reasonable distance between tables. A well-behaved dog on a leash would not be a problem to anyone, but the restaurant inexplicably bans all dogs. The server either could not or would not offer any rationale. We take our dogs with us whenever possible, so Antonio's won't be on our list in the future.... More

We have absolutely nothing against pets. Your dog was very large and was very hyper and would not stay still so due to that and sanitation reasons he could not stay. As for the food you talked about our duck enchiladas ( which by the way is one of our best sellers ) ) having to much fat and floating... More

Menu selections were varied and many. We both had the stuffed poblano with ground beef and multiple other things like pomegranate covered with a walnut/brandy cream sauce. Delicious guacamole made table side so you can enjoy watching and choose the amounts of ingredients to suit your particular taste. The salsa was just the right amount of spicy. Our waiter was...
