Good food, lovely portions, smiley faces!

Loved the food, loved the staff and everything else. It really lived up to my expectations and I've been going back to this place for a while now. 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... read 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

Food is ok, but very unimaginative. Mexican food isnt just about putting together few core ingrediants...its much more then that, it needs some soul but soul is missing. Waitors are like machines, they just march as if there is an emergency, and you have a feeling you are just being chased trough the whole thing so they can charge you... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Zagreb. The ambience is great, the music, the service and the food....yummy!!! It's the bestmexican food I've had in Croatia. Must visit!! The prices could be better...you'll pay for one chimicanga around 80 kn...but still...I'm coming back here every time I'm in Zagreb.

Delicious food, excellent atmosphere, the best Mexican restaurant in Europe I've been so far and Mexican is my favorite. It is better to make the reservation in advance.
