Nice dip starters portions. Mains average. Fantastic service and very friendly staff. The bill was not broken down, so difficult to follow. No Sauv Blanc wine.

On our trip to Croatia my wife and I really fancied some quality Mexican food and we were not disappointed. The potato skins were tasty and good value. For our main meals we had a Chicken Burrito and a Chicken Enchilada. Again, both tasty and good value. We have been to Mexican restaurants in many countries of the world (including... More

When I start numbering all good things about this place, one might wonder why only three pans. Service is really nice. Friendly and helpful. Very patient. Interior is nicely decorated, a bit too much, but I guess it's a Mexican style. Prices are moderate, compared to big portions they serve. Tequila sunrise cocktail I didn't find tasty, I have had...

After spending some time in Mexico, we wished to renew our memories and heared that this was a good place to eat. The chicken meat and beans were uneatable! Both of them were so bad can not explain,,,i really dont know whether that day something was wrong in cooking..the sevice was also not very good.

MexCantina is one of the cornerstones of foreign cuisine in the Zagreb. However, they are not only providing excellent authentic foods and drinks, but also provide the atmosphere and scenery of Foreign lands, far, far, away :o) Great place to “travel without moving “, for few hours.

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.
