We heard about this place from a local business as we were asking for a nice lunch spot. Climb up stairs or take the elevator to roof top seating or eat inside enjoy a spacious room with lots of seating. Room to enjoy and expansive food and drink menu. We were impressed with great food delivered very quickly by staff that cared about your enjoyment. Impressive.Highly recommend.

We enjoyed our dinner at Doc Martin's, especially our excellent server - who also filled us in on the building's history. (It turned out that we were eating in what had been Doc Martin's home.) The menu was extensive, and the food was quite good (although not quite the best that we enjoyed in Taos).Dear 598PhilC,Thank you for dining with us at Doc Martin's. I am happy to read that you enjoyed your dinner and our team shared the history of Doc Martin's. We look forward to you returning and trying some of our other menu items.Sincerely,Joe KendallGeneral ManagerDoc Martin's / Historic Taos Inn

Reviewed By MarkA934

Thirsty. In need of Southwestern refreshment. Looking for a fun place to quench this desire. The Adobe is indeed the buzing place with full tables and live entertainment. That expectation was met. Ordered the recommended Baby Buddha Margarita. Left still a little thirsty for a good Southwestern refreshment. Service was excellent, orders were a bit backed up so waitress comped the chips and salsa.Thank you for sharing your experience. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our ambiance and lively entertainment. The Adobe Bar serves over 10 varieties of margaritas- our Cowboy Buddha being our most famous. If ever your drink does not meet expectation, we are more than happy to make you something else.

There were six of us - got a table easily. Great waitress who got all the meals right. Food came quickly and was very tasty. We all had different orders and everyone thought their meal was excellent. She split the bills correctly and was always available for any extras. Great decor, too.

Bella's Mexican Grill

A delicious blend of traditional Mexican Cuisine and an array of Northern New Mexico favorites.

Reviewed By CalicoLil

Arrived here on a Friday eve and after a short wait we were seated. Waited awhile before the server introduced herself and took our drink orders. And she never came back! We waited and waited and finally another server asked if we had been helped. We told him we were still waiting for our drinks, so he rushed to get them for us and took our food order. While we waited we saw a table cleared, and another party seated, however the table was never wiped down. Patrons didn’t have water, or utensils. The server who waited on us after the original server abandoned us told us he was working with all new servers and it was their second day. We felt bad for him because he was trying to get everyone taken care of. The other servers apparently didn’t know the first thing about their job. A pitcher of margaritas (only so-so) and an hour later, our food arrived, two sopapilla plates and an enchilada plate. Mediocre at best. I would save my time and money and venture someplace else.

Good place for New Mexican food and drink. Had spicy grilled salmon, which comes with grilled vegetables and guacamole, plus tortillas, rice, sour cream, and chopped tomato. Jamaica to drink. No service: order at register, they bring food to you. Friendly folk. Fast cooks. No fuss. No atmosphere. Just good food. Many local Hispanic clients. Highly recommended.

Reviewed By mystic100

Don’t be put off by the exterior. This lovely cosy restaurant provided some of the tastiest food we have eaten this trip. The menu isn’t very extensive but the ingredients and flavours more than make up for this. The quantity of food is also spot on. Brilliant service from very attentive staff added to the experience. Would definitely eat here again and can highly recommend

We were staying at Hotel Luna Mystica so figured we’d try TMB for dinner. The menu was limited. And it was only so-so. The roasted beet salad was a whole ton of spinach and previous few beets. The tacos were okay. The calabacitas (sautéed squash) was the menu highlight. We don’t drink beer so we’re pleased to see wine and some wine based cocktails available.

We are in Taos for a bridge competition and don't like the hotel breakfast, so went wandering this morning for something else. Came across this diner. Very pleasant ambiance, equally pleasant and efficient staff. Our food was typical breakfast fare - eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, toast, coffee and tea. Portions were sizable, everything was served promptly and hot, and we would happily go back.

Orlando's New Mexican Cafe

Reviewed By Mary Beth P

Orlando's is our favorite place for Northern New Mexican food when we're in Taos, so we went there last week for lunch. We usually sit in the patio on a beautiful fall day, but Northern New Mexico was experiencing a cold snap so we sat inside. It was cozy, and the place was packed well past the noon lunch crowd. The best part was Angelica, our server, who was always smiling, efficient and charming, no matter how busy she was. I had the blue corn green chile chicken enchiladas, which were delicious as always. The posole on the side is very good. My husband had the red chile beef burrito which he said was tasty but not great. The red chile had no body to it, like it was made from chile powder and water, not ground chile pods. He liked it on previous visits so maybe they changed the recipe. It's still our favorite place; he'll just order something different next time.
