We were so disappointed by the service received at this restaurant. While the food was good, the owner's wife who is the hostess was extremely rude. I see on other reviews that she defends herself over and over, but there is a definite pattern here...More

Went to Antonio's for a late lunch while daughter and friend were river rafting; chose it based on reviews here. The tableside guacamole was wonderful, but nothing compared to the signature chile rellenos that my husband ordered -- we saw the owners and begged for...More

I walked into Antonio's by happenstance after one in the afternoon. My first impression, as I entered the patio, was to see a female employee, later identified as the owner, scurry away from me as she began to place a cellphone call. However, she did...More

Amazing find in Taos, NM. Sit in the wonderful courtyard surrounded by 6 foot tall Hollyhocks. The menu is unique and the food delicious. Can not beat the service. We will definately return to this restaurant every time we are in Taos. Owners are wonderful.

An Eclectic Taste Of Mexico. Chef Antonio covers all the bases, deliciously. Everything on the menu is prepared fresh and made to order and the majority of the menu can be prepared gluten free. Because of the flavorful, full-bodied sauces, you will be pleasantly full at the end of your meal accompanied with a fun Margarita like a Jalapeno, Watermelon Margarita. Nothing else like Antonio's Restaurant in beautiful Taos, New Mexico.
