We were there for a late dinner and ate some mexican dishes. They were quite alright, nothing really exciting though. The location is pretty good and the ambient was nice too. The service could be friendlier.

very disappointed with our main courses. this chain puts itself forward as texmex food,but it`s a long way from decent mexican cuisine. the seafood chimichanga was tasteless,especially the shrimps. there was no crab,as advertised,in the dish, and the peppers were not fresh but chewy. i definitely chose the wrong meal here but my wife and daughter had a similar experience...

We ate here once as it was on the expensive side. I had king prawns and rice which was about 20€ but it was very salty. Husband had burger and fries which he enjoyed.

I’m not sure what was worse…the food, the food or the food. Need I say more. When 60% of all sandwiches made in the US are one or another form of hamburger, you don’t want your hamburgers to taste anything like those served at the Indiana Cafe. There’s no excuse on earth. My advice for the owners is to get... More

It is probably best to avoid the Mexican food but the Hamburgers are terrific. The lunch menu offers a Cheese Burger with fries, coleslaw and a drink for 13.50 euros. If you are homesick for a burger, this is your place.

The location was great but the menu and offerings were as many as the Euros charged for food that was not worthy of the pricing. This is a perfect case of location drives business and I am sure that the sidewalk cafe business alone turned profit just due to its location. The theme of the restuarant was very alluring but...

This is not tex-mex. The menu offers nachos, chicken wings, quesadillas, fajitas etc but this is akin to the quality of a dodgy take-away. The food (wings, nachos) were just about edible but tasteless, beef fajita was inedible- tough as an old boot, poorly cut slices and overcooked onions and peppers, with lime green guacamole and served on dead lettuce....

My wife being an American just couldn't resist a taste from home despite being in one of the gourmet capitals of the world, happy to go with the flow we entered and to be fair we were seated and attended to promptly. Things went wrong when the 11 euro marguerita's arrived, and we know our margueritas, this was just atrocious,... More

I love Tex-Mex and I enjoy writing positive reviews. This is definitely not Tex-Mex and it was very poor. It was bland and massively over-priced. The Fajitas had no sizzle, they appear to have run out of salsa or have never hear of it and the refried beans were just kidney beans. The 11 Euro Pina Colada was poor and... More
