Stayed at attached Rico Hotel. A very real sense of mining history. Comfortable and hospitable atmosphere. The proprietor,... Eamonn, was outgoing and friendly. He is an outstanding chef. Only 30 minutes outside Telluride, on a mountainside, Rico is muchless a tourist trap. Stay here in the evenings and visit the trailheads for hiking. Ahhh.... so much more relaxing than thehubbub tourist morass down in the valley. Read more

We had an absolutely delicious meal! Two of us had the salmon ( cooked perfectly with an amazing sauce!). The meal was elegant... and the atmosphere inviting. We also had the BEST waiter. We will definitely be back! Read more

Who would have thought such decadence and skill would be in small town Rico? This restaurant is absolutely superb. It's an... intimate space nestled into the mountain side with a warm ambiance, great music, and friendly staff. We are vegan, gave a bit ofnotice, and the chef prepared an entire 5-course meal for us; they also have a vegetarian lasagna, delicious garlic breadappetizer, and crisp salad they could easily make vegan if you can't give notice. It was hands down the best meal I've ever had.I'd recommended this place in a heart beat to any one. Read more

For such a small this place does a very tasty hamburger. They're mostly limited to carry out during covid. I'm typically not a... fan of fried potatoes instead of french fries but the garlic sauce on the hamburger pulled it together for me. I'll definitelyhave to try them again the next time I'm in Rico!
