All too often, 'Mexican' cuisine abroad is a byword for Americanised fast food. Not so at Le Dépanneur Pigalle. By the time you've taken a seat at one of the elegant wooden tables adorned with cacti, you'll already have forgotten you're in Paris.
The menu sustains the illusion. We tucked into a starter of homemade tortillas stuffed with stewed pork shoulder, chipotle sauce, coriander and black beans (€14), accompanied by a delectable cocktail (€12). Our main course raised the bar even higher: a beefburger with tangy blue cheese, BBQ sauce, succulent onions and fries, all in generous portions. We weren't surprised to learn that the owners are the team behind burger van du jour Cantine California – Le Dépanneur, true to their name, know how to sort out a hungry client in style.

They don't have consistent service, sometimes it can be fine but usually quite rude, especially during the weekend.. The cocktails are mediocre the food is banal with its quality.I have been there 3 times, enough for life.
It is a classic example for a contemporary Parisian restaurant with great location and the potential to be amazing, but instead the owner choose to create a banal and ephemeral place that will shut down as soon as the bad burger/tapas culinary season will vanish.
