Our best restaurant experience in Durango for creative and delicious selections. This restaurant would receive high marks in any city in the US for fine dining. We should return to Durango very soon just to dine at Primus.

We had a fantastic experience. Lucky enough to know our server who served an amazing table. The extra little touches of care were wonderful. The food was amazing. And the presentation was beyond that. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back. We live in Hayden so it’s a nice close elegant place to share an evening. Thank you all for a job well done.

Pagosa Springs
About the restaurant
Announcing our Winter Hours! From October through May we will be open Wednesday - Saturday from 4:00pm-8:30pm for reservations!

Farm to table dining in Pagosa Springs. Proudly serving fresh local ingredients from neighboring farmers, purveyors, and artisan favorites. Weekly menu changes, depending on season and product availability. Delightful flavor combinations, hearty portions, and craft cocktails, beer and wine to pair.

Our Outdoor Dining Area is closed for the season, but it's nice and toasty inside! Summer will bring back our outdoor patio and riverside seating which adds increased availability to dine in our intimate mountain Eatery.

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary here for dinner and the service was AMAZING. We talked about it on our way home how this was the best dining experience we had ever had. The food was amazing but the service was incredible. They gave us a 1st Anniversary menu, a card signed by all staff with sweet congratulations inside, and a rose. It was those little touches that were so nice because they prepared for us coming, and you never get that. If we had one of these in KY, we would be frequent flyers. I highly recommend!
