We loved this restaurant a la other review. Scott well deserved accolades as chef owner for many years. Menu limited but all excellent. Halibut superb as was beef and chicken. So glad we came to this wonderful restaurant.

Go to Byzantium for a fresh food experience like no other in Taos. The menu is thoughtfully curated and small but changes according to what is seasonally fresh and delicious! The owner, Scott, is also the waiter and he has one staff member helping him...More

These two guys are amazing. The restaurant has less than 10 tables in a dimly lit restaurant with candles. Service and food are excellent. We felt very welcome in the warm setting. We had mussels in a light wine broth, shrimp on a skewer with...More

This place is the best kept secret in Taos. When you go, take your time and savor every bite, every moment. Order dessert. Talk to the staff. Indulge in the chocolate. Restaurants like this let us live our lives to the fullest!

Byzantium is a little off the plaza, and a little off the beaten track. You won't find a website and the chef doesn't own a cell phone. But what he may lack in technology is more than made up for in flavorful cuisine and creative...More
