“Mexican food?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

The best part of the evening was the terrace overlooking part of the city and the Alps.
But the food was extremely disappointing: the Pollo Mole Poblano did not seem to contain any cocoa nor was it hot as it can be in Mexico, it merely comprised slices of strange feeling chicken that looked reconstituted floating in what seemed to be an industrial brown sauce. The Pollo Ranchera was less terrible, however, dominated by garlic. And the proposed selection of Mexican beers was not available: it was Sol or Sol!
This restaurant used to be one of our favorites so I assume its management must have changed (for the worst).

“Expensive and not exceptional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Many people I know really like this place. I can't figure out why. Granted, it's a good Mexican restaurant for Lausanne (actually one of the very few Mexican restaurants in Lausanne, sadly). But food is expensive (CHF 25 for a burrito!) and not great (but it's good). The staff is friendly and they often have parties (bachelorette parties, birthdays, etc.)

“It's popular, but food is ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

On Saturday night, it was packed with group of people who were doing birthdays and bachelorette parties. This place is great for big group of friends, but the food was average. The price is normal as this is in Switzerland, but as other reviewers say, the food was ok. I would choose somewhere else for food.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

great fajitas, good portions and nice service.
Switzerland is not a cheap place for eating out and this is par for the course.
