I'm not satisfied. It is sad that my homemade tortillas was better than in the restaurant. Pleasant ambience, has parking (plus on this location).

Portions are pretty big and food is very good. I don't think prices are too high for the portions you get. I think its a pretty good value. Main course is about 70-100 kn per meal, so about 10-14$. Appetisers about 5, 6$. My boyfriend ordered Enchilada with seafood, that was pretty good and you get two.

I was here with my friends several times and everytime I was delighted. Food and service is excellent, ambient beautiful... My favourite mexican restaurant in Zagreb! But I have to say, it seems that their portions have become smaller. All im all, excellent!

It is overpriced for a food that comes cold. Service was good, but food not at all. Waste of time and money.

Since the prices are not anywhere nere Croatian standard, they should at least give you double the quantity of dippings and the portions should be bigger. That is not to say that food is anything but fabuleous and I simply LOVE Enchillada suiza (eat it every week) but they could work on making the price/quantity ratio is a little bit... More

Good place to go for reasonable price, but i remeber it being much better. The location is okay, service is great, but don't have too high expectations. It is a great place to have food and fill up you apetite!

Being from Southern California, we try Mexican food whenever we travel, both because we miss it and because we are curious about how it will taste. So we have tried it in Budapest, London, Evian, etc., and have found Mex Cantina to be the best! We had fajitas, a quesadilla, and two soft drinks for about $15 US dollars, which... More
