This restaurant didn't differentiate itself at all from any other. Surly staff, average food, average service, nothing to write home about. We had a mixture of local specialities (snails being one to taunt the kids) and international food - the best dish being the hot dog gratin (hot dogs in... read more

Disappointing overall. Yes the portions are large - huge even - but the quality is variable. There is obviously some food service prepared products in their range and these are a let down. The mains are good but I'd recommend their burgers ahead of the ribs.

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 trouble with BBQ ribs and wings... 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
