We came upon this beach bar/restaurant visiting the beach during the morning and decided to give it a try for dinner. 4 adults (one vegetarian), 2 fussy teenagers and 2 under 3's all enjoyed our meals.

Very welcoming chef/owner (?) and waitresses welcomed us to our table following an easy telephone booking (my French skills being only basic).

Play table for youngest children to sit and draw at was welcome to keep them entertained whilst we ordered.

Nachos and salsa / guacamole to start, extra nachos needed for our children in particular, recommend a portion per person if you have a good appetite. All delicious and devoured in full.

Main courses, chicken tacos (soft home made wraps - in uk often referred to genetically as fajitas) for the older ones, enchiladas for the youngsters, veggie enchilada for my sister in law, beef tacos and the assorted tasting plates for the rest of us.

Food declared delicious by all (especially good for our veggie) and nothing much left on any plates even by the children.

Selection of beers, some Mexican, in our view fairly expensive at 4.50 euro per 330ml. Heineken 3 euro per 250ml. We English like to enjoy a few beers with spicy food! Carafe house wine 12 euro.

Puddings simple ice cream boules, a Meccan sponge pudding, all enjoyed.

Great friendly service throughout, great Mexican food. Covered a wide variety of tastes and preferences. I'm sure we will be back during this holiday and recommend you give this a try if you like Mexican food and are looking for an enjoyable stress free dining experience and are fed up with Chips.

PS Recommendation to owners, give the windows / screens a wash down and let your customers really enjoy those amazing sea views you have.

A good home made lunch in Barcarès off the french lunch hour is not that easy to find, but at Mexi-can they will serve you at any time(almost). Friendly and english speaking staff who knew the concept of vegan food, this is the place to go. Both parents, grand parents and kids were more than satisfied. Will definetely come back for the food and for the welcoming feeling.

We ate here with 4 main courses a couple of lemonades and a few beers for around €80. For me, this is as reasonable as you're going to get in France. We all really enjoyed our meals and the novelty of the setting. It was mine and my daughters favourite meal of the holiday :)

Very nice restaurant on the beach. Made from drinks cans on the inside. Very shack-like. Food was good, but not exactly as we know Mexican food in the UK ie Fajitas, was nothing like we get in UK. Was quite expensive, but we went for a birthday dinner so was worth it. About 110 euros for 4, no desserts, 2 beers, 2 cocktails.

Visited here in August 2014 and came back this year. Really excellent and authentic Mexican food on the beach in Le Barceres. The quality of the food is excellent and service matches.

Yesterday the chef brought us 3 different type of chillies to add to our meals, he explained what each was and how strong it was; it was a really nice touch and added to our experience.

Good for vegetarians which is not common in this area.

I would hugely recommend the 'Tres Leches' for dessert. It's a traditional Mexican dessert and is absolutely delicious!

Will retain next year.
