Whether you’re planning a trip or currently find yourself hungry in the middle of your Colorado vacation, check out our list of the best mountain restaurants in Telluride. These locations are sure to soothe any growling stomach.

Telluride Mountain Restaurant #1: Allred’s Restaurant

Dining on a mountain never seemed so easy. Allred’s features some incredible views—the restaurant’s massive windows showcase just how high up in the mountains you are. The entire staff is committed to giving you a unique and memorable dining experience. With dishes ranging from a rosemary spiced rack of lamb to wagyu beef carpaccio, your will leave satisfied.

Alpino Vino

The highest restaurant in North America, Alpino Vino is easily one of the most well-known mountain restaurants in Telluride. At almost 12,000 feet up, you’ll get to experience the insane beauty that Telluride has to offer. Alpino Vino serves Italian Alpine comfort food from a quaint European hütte, and you can choose to dine outside on their expansive multi-tiered deck. For dinner, you get to experience a unique and exquisite five-course tasting menu.


Positioned at the top of the Plunge Lift at Telluride Ski Resort, Giuseppe’s is a local favorite. Offering wonderfully spiced New Orleans-inspired comfort foods, you get a delectable meal to accompany the majestic views. Their black bean sauté is one of their most popular dishes, and their chili is just as famous.

Gorrono Ranch

You’ll find Gorrono Ranch mid-mountain on the Misty Maiden run, and you won’t want to miss the atmosphere this place has to offer. The historic Basque sheep herding ranch supplies mouthwatering burgers and sandwiches, awesome live music, and tasty cocktails. The views never get old, either. If you’re looking for a quick bite after a run, you won’t want to miss this.
