“Ole!! Muchas gracias! It is great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

After weeks in France a very welcome change from too much foie gras and the like. Taco Mex is as authentic as you will find outside of Mexico.

We had great guacamole as well as chicken and chorizo quesadillas and beef fajitas. The only place in France serving Corona with a lime!

Not easy to find but eorth the trip. The chef is very proud of his fare.

“Some of the best mexican food in Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

The food is basic it is the sauces and condiments that you add on yourself that makes it. The basic food comes quickly and was freshly prepared. Then you take your plate up to the bar and add sauces, that are explained by the waiter. Also adding veg or refried beans or rice. As the waiter explains the sauses and dishes you get a small spoon to taste each one. I've never seen this done before and highly recommend it. Nice touch!

PS Beware of the margarita's they sneak up on you!

“Don't miss this place if you're in Biarritz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I ate here with my wife and 15 year-old son based on other recommendations on this site. It was excellent... The food was superb, the service friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere convivial. The chef goes to great lengths to explain the various sauces, and tell you what goes well with each item, and our waitress was great.

The hot sauce was very hot!!

“Good, friendly & personal service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The waiter at this restaurant was excellent! He took the time to show every customer how the restaurant worked in terms of making your own enchiladas, etc! At the front there is a little bar with all your mix in's, & sauces, etc... And for those growing boys, you could go back for more! It's nothing gourmet, it's simple mexican, but it was delicious & a nice comfortable atmosphere. The restaurant is quite small & very popular so I recommend booking, especially if in a group of more than 2 people!

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Stumbled on this place by accident. Does exactley what it says, basic Tex Mex fuel. However the service was great and the enthusiasm of the owner was very refreshing. We were passing through Biarritz on our way to the Airport, Knowing we were short of time the staff could not have been more helpful. Great service, great food.
