This restaurant is sometimes passed over, as some feel because of it's name, it is hot/spicy -- Cajun. It is a wonderful restaurant, as you can get little to no spice food, as well as 'spicy' food. The menu is quite varied and the prices are not out of sight.

We enjoyed the Cajun pepper. Staff was nice and friendly. My boys ordered the taco and boy were they surprised.

The exterior in a small strip mall does not entice you into this nice Mexican restaurant. Traditional Mexican food and mixed Canadian/Mexican food provide for a unique menu. We would return.

Excellent choices in Mexican cuisine. The Sangria was excellent which started the night off right. We could not decide so we had the platter for two which had rice, taco's, Quesadilla and Chimichanga I think. It was presented well with quick service. It was on the bland side BUT they had a really good selection on hot sauces on the... More

Visited this restaurant many times and the food is always above average. Every meal we have ordered here was delicious. The tomato soup is spicy but a must-try. The menu has quite a variety from North Amercian fare to South of the Border. All good.

Found this little treasure trove on a trip from Ottawa. Best restaurant in Chatam hands down. Favourite meal was the taco platter.

Stopped by here tonight. Ordered the Chicken Quesadilla which was pretty good but the flatbread was very soggy. There was no way you could pick up a slice. A knife and fork is a must. The service was good however, and I like the decor.

Also the chicken... More

Went here after not having been for years...mostly because it is out of the way for us. We were so happy we did! The service was awesome, the food was fabulous and the atmosphere was great! We arrived just before 6 pm on a Friday - good timing on our part - because shortly after the place was full and... More
