Nice atmosphere and great food! Caters to Foreigners with a great staff. Best place in town! Bar Tenders were excellent with on time service and the drink choices were many. Staff understood English and French so communication was not a problem. I highly recommend you check this out!

The Appaloosa advertises itself as Tex-Mex, but they have a lot more variety than that. I would call them, American cuisine Plus. The plus being a few Russian dishes, some Lebanese, etc. The waiters all wear cowboy boots and 10-gallon hats.

Myself and a few work colleagues recently frequented this establishment for lunch.
