“Standard Mexican fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Billed in one of the guide books I had as "the best Mexican in the former Yugoslavia". We found it to be exactly what you would expect from an average Mexican restaurant - no complaints but nothing amazing either. Would recommend to people who like this type of food but on reflection we would liked to have tried something different. As the day in question was my birthday I chose so I guess I should blame myself!

“Not for the food but for the ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

The food is not really good, everthing on the menu tastes alsmost similar. You should go here for the atmosphere, to see and meet people. Friday evening's this is the place to be.

“Slow but good food and drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

The food is good, though the service can be a bit slow at times. The drink menu however almost makes it worth a visit :) Dont come in too big groups as they are not always too good at handling it (we were 35 so its understandable). There is WIFI and the location is very central!
