A nice Mexican restaurant, without being anything special. Honest. Not cheap. You can try it. In warm days you can sit outside in the middle, but not busy corner of main place of Saarbrücken.

We have waited 1 hour for our food. And we were 6 in the whole restaurant. Food was undercooked and tasteless. They will not see me again.
