We ate there sometimes when we lived in Lausanne. Charming mexican restaurant. Sometimes there is a music player too. The caramel-coco pineapple is delicious.

I grew up just North of the Mexican border, so I know good Mexican when I taste it. This was over-salted yet under-seasoned food--and they put gruyere cheese on our tacos! Also, everything is extremely over-priced. You have better luck going to Amigo Taco.

As ever in Lausanne, nothing is 'bon-marche'! We had 2 x Taquitos and 2 sprite lemonades. CHF37. If we had been in say, New York, the cost wouldn't be surprising but.....the cost of being a tourist here is hellish. Beautiful city, brilliant transport system, the...More

Despite what some reviewers say, this place has been serving decent food in the last 20 years and although it may not be as authentic as in Mexico or California, it is quite good for Swiss and European standards. We have never had bad service...More

My husband and I are American expats living in Lausanne. We desperately miss Mexican food, so we were hopeful when we sat down in Manana today (yes, I see the humor there). Sadly, the food was not good. Edible maybe, but definitely not good. The...More
