There are a lot of very bad Mexican restaurants in Paris, but this is one of the best. We had a very good meal at a reasonable price in a cute bistro setting with charming service. Very happy. Not San Antonio, but who expected that???

Came across this delightful Mexican restaurant when searching for a gluten free place to eat at. Most of the food is gluten free. Service was very good and the prices reasonable. Being able to sit outside allowed you to enjoy the street atmosphere with other nearby restaurants.

I discovered this little place just walking by and really enjoyed having dinner there. They have really cool déco, tasty food and rather reasonable prices for Paris. The service was pretty efficient and friendly. It more a chilled-out place, refreshing in this rather fancy area. Good sizes portions (had ceviche and fajitas) and friendly vibe. Wouldn't mind eating there again... More

I went last night and came away very disappointed. When the main course arrived, for a moment I thought there was some sort of mistake because it was about half the size of what I consider to be normal and acceptable. Even after eating some cheese cake to fill the gap I left feeling like I'd not had a proper... More

Hobestly, I don't really recommend this place. The food is ok, nothing special, but the service is horrible...There is a weird and with no modals waiter working, who treated us very bad. And the food is very expensive for the quality offered...

Service was nice but had no idea on mexican food. They didnt know what kind of tequila they had (of course no good tequila was available), no idea on what a michelada beer was... Very frustrating. They offered tapas... Tapas? Spanish tapas on a mexican restaurant? Humm. Ok. Summing up: if you want to try real mexican food, do not... More

Living in Southern California for the last three years I can say this is pretty good Mexican food. our waiter helped us put together two vegetarian meals (there is only one listed). The cactus salad is quite good, the guacamole a nice starter, and the vegetable burrito good sauce, tasty not not over wheeling. The music is played at a... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
