I tried this mexican restaurant in the center or Valence two times. The atmosphere is quite nice, the service too (even though both times I went was in the middle of the week, so few tables and faster service I guess).

We ordered burger and when it came it was cold and the frites was soft. The Bread have not been warmed. Not a very nice dinner. The service was okay and nice.

This is definitely my favorite restaurant in this town, there is a nice choice for different tastes. The meat is tender and always well cooked on the grill with a delicious taste of smoke. The fries are AMAZING !!! And the portions are very generous.
