A reasonable Tex mex. typical food served as you would expect. The meat dishes are more generous than the fajitas etc. afligen beer tasted watered down but I can't prove it. Staff had made a real effort for Halloween. Booked solid every weekend apparently.

As the headline states, we ordered 3 starters two of which were chicken salads, half way through this a maggot was seen crawling around the bowl. Brought it to the staff attention who replaced the salad. Absolutely disgusting. No apology no deduction of the item from the bill. Never again. Despite the place being empty at 7 .30pm and over...

We chose this restaurant as it was near our hotel and with a mixed group inc children thought it would be fine, aside that there seemed to be zero management of staff and tables we still upon eventually getting seated were all relatively happy and ordered a variety of Mexican dishes and steaks, the food itself was I suspect with...

In short. The wait was long, the food was nasty and the staff didn't appear to care. If I could award a lower rating than one I would.

Very busy weekend (last one b4 Xmas) helps to speak French & on a Saturday night book your table! Three people cost including bottle of wine €59.00. Typical tex-mex from a menu perspective.

I went for a dinner on 8th January with my partner, we had a sharing platter which was great. To follow I had a trio of beef lamb and duck. I have been to few restaurants around this area and anywhere I asked for medium rare it was usually coming blue or rare. What a surprise when my meat came... More

If you are a foreign turist you'll better avoid the Tex-Mex in Dax. Quality of the cooking is poor and you'll might find some surprises in it, like hair in your ice cream.
