-before Antonio climbs back into first place in Taos, receives his new liquor license, and has fully trained his junior wait staff. Dinner for four was a great reminder of our earlier experiences at his original restaurant. He is definitely a master chef with a careful use of his subtle ingredients. You'll be thrilled if you stop, south of town,... More

We frequented Antonio's when they were in Taos before going to Colorado for 3 years. My wife and I were happy to see them back in Taos and find out the food and service continue to be excellent. The new location is small but the atmosphere is great.

Stopped at Antonio's on our way out of Taos. Just looked like a roadside restaurant but surprised to find quite a tasty dining experience. Very tasty fajitas. The service was excellent beyond expectations. Even the chef himself checked in with us!

We stopped at Antonio's on our way to Taos. The restaurant has only been open since the first of March. We think that they are doing a great job. We started our lunch with the "table side" guacamole. It was excellent, even though it was not prepared table side, but at a workstation in the dining room. The chips were... More

The location is new but Antonio's has returned with the same delicious menu and unique flavors that made it a Taos favorite. My husband and I visited for lunch and enjoyed their table side quacamole and chips for starters. We followed that with an order of fresh shrimp ceviche that is large enough to be shared or to serve as... More

Enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio for a traditional New Mexican meal with my man. The corn on the cob was delicious, and rest of the food was pretty good. Would have loved to give Antonio's a higher rating, but it took over an hour to get our food. We may give them another try the next time we are... More
