Good Mexican food

Different types of tortillas, burritos and tacos. The food is very good, especially the soups. The staff is quick and helpful. Good place for family, couples, business or bigger groups. Need more choice of Mexican beers. Recommended.

Not the best Mexican I ever had, but good enough. Mariachi band plays live on Monday evenings so a reservation is recommended.

My husband and I have been here several times and it is acceptable as "Mexican food" but certainly not comparable to actual Mexican food or Tex Mex restaurants in North America. The menu is quite expansive and if you are craving chips and salsa, a burrito, or enchiladas this is definitely your best option in Zagreb. The service is excellent... More

Mex Cantina has been among my favorite restaurats for quite some time. From the charing interior design, atmosphere to great food and service, they never disappoint.

I haven't visited Mex Cantina in a while and went there the other night with high expectations. Unfortunately things have changed. First of all, we waited a very long time to have our order taken, then low quality tortilla chips with tasteless salsa and sour cream dip were brought to the table. Our food did arrive rather fast but tortillas... More

I would say that the food and the service are good for what you pay, nothing special, but without remarks. Good access by car.
