Tried different restaurant with mexican dishes and definitely this one beats them all. A decent stake, barbecue ribs, all kinds of domesticated tortillas. Good deserts and a rich wine selection. Portions are also decent and the price is manageable high.

Located just next to a tram stop and near the city centre, this restaurant offers a taste of Mexico and reasonable prices and great service. The menu offers a wide range of Mexican dishes, from starters to desserts. It was a family lunch event, there were 8 of us, all of us had a main dish (large servings), three rounds... More

I love that place. We've been going there for years now and we always come back. Frankly I must says that the food experience changed to worse last time. Like they lost the edge, the food lost the character. For the money you pay, and in Croatia it is a lot to pay over 100€ for 4 people in such... More

Unlike other places, they have not made their portions smaller or less delicious. You get good value for money and the atmosphere is always friendly. If you like to eat and are... More
