Byzantium is a small, intimate, restaurant with just six or seven tables. Located just off the Taos plaza, there is easy access and on-site parking available. Chef is putting out some great plates, it is well worth the trip.

My wife and I return here each time we visit Taos. It’s the best. Best fresh cooked food, best variety on the menu, best atmosphere (welcoming, inviting, makes you want to stay and enjoy your meal and company).

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
