It's nice if you looking for a change of the typical French food. Great music and food, service was great! We had the empanadas, yuca, burrito and chorizo and margaritas all was great! Total price $42 + tip

The starters, the plates AND the drinks were excellent. Given that main courses only cost around 10€ and that the restaurant is located just 200m from notre dame, this is just awesome. The place is really cozy and the manager warm and friendly. A pleasant surprise !

This restaurant is over priced and the food is bad. We ate here and both got sick. Just look at the pictures, the food was bad! Cramped seating

We visited here because our planned restaurant was too busy, and we didn't regret it. The service was quick and the staff were very friendly. Food was excellent, and a good sized portion for the money. Drink prices seem to be on par with the rest of Paris. Will definitely visit again if we're back in Paris!

We were in there on a Saturday night when it was packed with a queue out the door. Good range of tasty options, nothing flash.

Wonderfully tasty food, small friendly place. I had a great experience. Made me feel like a local. Fantastic location you can pop into on your way to Notre Dame or the Luxembourg Gardens. Places to sit inside and outside (covered if it rains)

The restaurant itself has a great atmosphere and was very busy when we went on a Monday evening. The staff were friendly and attentive until they got busy then less so. The food was ok but very little spice and less flavoursome than I had expected. There were chicken bones in the burrito (which completely put my children off). A... More

A very small restaurant, with narrow aisles, barely enough space to move. Food was okay. Unfortunately, there was gristle in the chicken burrito. The prices for food were fair. The service was quite slow due to busy time.

Always fun to find a Spanish food place in Paris, France. It has the right meals but it is not 'country' specific, rather it is a mix of Colombian, Venezuelan, Argentinian and other types of food. To get away from the usual parisian food, visit this hidden jem. Get the fondue, for sure!

It's a very receptive place. Service is very good and food is nice too, as their Sangria. Strongly recommended!
