We were driving from Perpignan to Avignon and were looking for a quick bite. We saw this place and for whatever reason decided to dine here. This was the worst "Mexican" and/or Tex Mex food that I've ever had. Seriously, it was foul beyond belief!! The guacamole was the nasty green good, the chicken quesadilla I had was made with fake cheese wiz or something and the chicken itself almost had a curried type of flavor (not in a good way) which was just off. Everyone's food was pretty rancid as well, and the worst part is that it wasn't even cheap!!! Ughhhh NEVER AGAIN!! We should have known better than to go here...

We were welcomed warmly by our very pleasant, efficient and friendly waitress who showed us to our table sur la terrasse.

Our starters were delivered quickly and tasted fine as did our main course.

The music, although at low volume, was ok but it did become repetitive, perhaps I'm not a fan of Central American tunes.

Popped in here after a shopping trip. Had never heard of it. Great find! Very tasty stuff, great margaritas and reasonable prices, we'll be back!
