Lovely food shame about the service

Food was great - my husband had the best burger he's ever tasted. Not so complimentary about the service / food was slammed down in front of us and we were rushed along - would have stayed for more drinks had they made more of an effort.

We visited here on a Friday night in February. Despite not having a booking we were quickly taken inside and offered a table upstairs as it's 'Quieter for couples' according to the waiter (he was right - much nicer atmosphere upstairs) The waitress was quick to take our order and the food arrived in good time. The portion sizes were... More

Kind of Mexican Restaurant with choices for who doesn’t like Mexica food. I ordered a chicken Fajita and a Beer and for dessert I had a Red fruit crumble. The food was good and in general I would say it is a nice place. The music was quite loud for a dinner you need to shout to be heard. I... More

A group of us sat for a coffee; our first 'French' coffee at the start of our French trip. The service was friendly enough but slow. We were made to sit outside when there were seats available inside. Then we found out that to have the waiter serve us our drinks outside cost an extra 2 Euros each. Oh dear,... More

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.
