Il y a fort longtemps que je n’avais été au Carlos & Pepe’s...Quelle déception!!!

Nourriture sans goût. Propreté du restaurant et des toilettes discutable...
Le seul point positif, la jeune fille qui nous a servi d’une gentillesse et rapidité très bien.

Disons, que nous n’y retournerons pas...

While we received a two person table only inches away from the one next to us, we surprisingly didn't feel the lack of privacy much. The food was fresh and very tasty. The frozen raspberry, strawberry, and pineapple margaritas were excellent. Our server was friendly, and moved us to a booth when one became available. The atmosphere was eclectic and cosy. Although I probably should have deducted stars for the upstairs, isolated, creepy washroom with overflowing paper towels, it was not the washrooms that I went for. I would definitely return.

I had heard good things about this restaurant but have to say I was SO disappointed. The ambiance was nice and the restaurants decor itself was cute but the food was terrible. We ordered the Flautas which had ZERO cheese. The filling was terribly dry and the outside was so so so soggy and not crispy whatsoever. Some of the pieces of chicken were also very burnt. We also ordered the Dos Pisos Tacos which also had ZERO cheese. They were supposed to have a soft and hard shell taco but the hard shell was soggy and pliable. The filling again was very dry and lacking in flavour. The mexican rice was similar to a rice pilaf that you could cook in the microwave. Even the table salsa was no more than a can of tomato soup with chucks of canned vegetables thrown in. We will not be back.

They had no idea I had reserved, so they had no reserved table. I wanted a booth, so they gave us the one that was reserved for someone coming later. I got a dirty, sticky plate. They had no teas to offer, only coffee. I had to keep asking for a small spoon. We got room temperature water, no ice. Had to keep looking for our waitress, she would disappear by moments at a time. Very disappointed! Prefer the one in Laval. Have already been to this location 3 yrs ago - it was so much better then. What a shame. Have no intentions of ever going back!😔

The atmosphere was nice and the drinks were good - that’s about it. The food was bland and overall terrible (I never thought someone could mess up guacamole...). The service was subpar, if I’m being nice. Our waitress took five years to take our order and kept disappearing. Thank God for Sarena, who picked up her slack and made sure we were able to order and checked on us throughout the night. She was truly a great waitress and very personable & professional. We were disappointed when the check came and we just saw our original waitress’ name on the bill. She definitely did not deserve the automatic gratuity that Canada likes to impose - if we could have selected “0”, we would have and gave Sarena a cash tip that SHE earned.

It was a very good restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The servers were very kind to my friends and I, and made sure that we had everything we needed. The food was delicious and exactly the way I wanted it. Overall, a bit pricey, but definitely worth it for the amazing time that the four of us had. Will be visiting again.

Stated when making the reservation it was for a birthday celebration. Host, server, and manager were oblivious to the request. If OpenTable is going to ask, me if the reservation is for an event and not advise or have the restaurant follow up, why are you asking ?? Food was hot, came out quickly and was well prepared. Our server was very pleasant. Will return next time we are in town.

Nourriture impeccable, il est juste dommage de ne pas avoir eu de service à table. On nous a placé à l'étage à côté d'une grande tablée, puis on nous a oublié tout le reste du repas. Pour finir, restaurant à l'ambiance très bruyante.

We made a reservation thru open table but they didn't seem to have it in their system. Luckily (or not) they had availability. Seems like they don't bother to keep their reservation system in sync with open table.

Then we sat down and things continued to go downhill. Took the server a long time to take our order. The table next to us who came at the same time had their orders taken and their drinks arriving before we even had our server stop by our table to check on us.

My wine glass had lipstick on it, almost fresh. Seemed like they couldn't be bothered to at least rinse properly if they weren't going to wash.

Then the food was the rock bottom of the evening. My enchiladas were dry. They were parts of the recipe that were just thrown in together at the last minute instead of being cooked properly together. The rice seemed like instant rice so I wouldn't be surprised if the enchiladas were also microwaved frozen ingredients. There was barely any sauce, definitely not the typical enchiladas you'd expect. No flavors at all. Taco Bell would cook and put together their dishes much better.

My son's burrito was dry and also flavorless.

My brother's girlfriend's quesadilla was dry cold tortilla with fillings that never seemed to get an opportunity to get cooked together to make a dish. The same theme here as the enchiladas: instant ingredients thrown in together with no cooking involved. Again, even Taco Bell would at least cook their dishes.

Even if nothing else is available, I would not come to this place. I have not had fast food in over a decade but you'd be better off going to one than to this place.
