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.

Let me start by saying that I'm from Texas & I've had my share of real Mexican food. Not only that, but I can cook Mexican food. Mex Cantina is not Mexican food. The restaurant was very busy with locals but you won't see someone who's eaten true Mexican food in there twice! Bottom line, if you have nothing to... More
