Visited this place few times during my stay in Ljubljana. Food is delicious, especially fajitas. Adjusted to European taste, not as spicy as Mexican food can be. However, quality of cocktails is inconsistent, the bartender upstairs prepares far superior drinks, so if you have a chance, opt to have a table upstairs. Welcoming and polite staff, cozy and colorful interior.... More

Since I live overseas it had been a long time since I my last mexican food so I was happy to find this restaurant. It was tucked away on a side street close to downtown. The ambiance of the restaurant was good. I was craving Fajitas and I was happy with my dinner along with the salsa and chips.

The enviroment was great and put you right in the mood for mexican food. The portions were so big, i couldn't finish the burrito. But, it was very nice.

The service was very efficient and the food was delicious. I had the steak with barbecue source, chips and garlic bread and my wife had the chicken in white wine source with mash. We tend to leave out the starters so that we have room for a sweet - maybe we should have left out the main course as well!... More

Enchilada suiza is very good, portions are of nice size and grated corn is absolutely amazing. Huge crowd which I guess means it's quite popular place in Ljubljana.

The food is unbelievable value for money. Huge portions, and by far one of the best mexican's I've ever had! Would definitely recommend a visit! Service could have been a little friendlier, but saying that, we are English and it may have been the language barrier which may have effected this! This would not put me off returning at all!

The food was good, typical mexican but the service was a drop over the edge. The waiter did not greet, mix our order with someone else and didn't even apologize, we were waiting for too long and there was no kindness or friendly attitude from waiters side.

This Mexican restaurant is one of my favourites in Slovenia. You have a large variety of dishes to choose from, and it's all very good! The portions are huge, so two people can share a dish without any concern of hunger. It is a bit pricey, but what else can you expect in the centre of the capital?

Friendly crew, good selection. Nice environment. The only challange is to finish your food as it's massive portion... be hungry! :-) Surely recommend if you're up for some Mexican flavours.
