Besides being the only place open on Monday night, they serve decent Mexican food for a reasonable price. Friendly service, nice decoration and good margaritas.

Having enchiladas in a traditional Mexican ambience was worth the time and money spent. Hosts are kind and supported us with our language barrier.

The place has a nice mexican theme. Staff was attentive and friendly, the food was great and authentic. To drink I recommend the margarita. If you are going for dinner it opens at 20:00.

Our family have enjoyed Mexican restaurants for many years and in many places in the world so we thought we would give La Sandia a go as it is not too far from where we live. The people at the restaurant were very friendly but overall I think the place is over-rated. The food was mediocre at best, quite expensive... More

I'm Mexican and I live in Toulouse. I had my doubts and it took me 18 months to try it. It's a real mexican restaurant with Mexican people and taste. Try the cactus "nopalitos" and enchiladas de mole. It's the real informal Mexican cuisine! Enjoy it!
