Food Okay, Service dismal

The food was edible and enough of it. Not wonderful, but not awful, either. My main grips was the service. The waiter did not understand 'French fries', even though it was listed as such on the menu. Neither did he understand 'cappuccino', even though that too was listed on the menu. He also had... read more

If you want a cafe that reminds you of Indiana, please stay in Indiana. This place really does not know where it wants to be. Sorry Tex Mex tacos and other assorted Mexican is pretty pathetic. If you want a good burger please patronize one of the local bistros. I guarantee you that you will not get one as good... More

Popular local tex mex restaurant with a great list of veggie options which can be a challenge in France. Tasty food, large portions, and friendly service made this a great dinner spot.

The Indiana Cafe has the most imaginative assortment of salads that I've encountered in Paris. For those who are weary of the standard salads offered in most restaurants I highly recommend this place. The portions are generous and the prices are extremely fair. My quinoa salad with paprika chicken was excellent.

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

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.
