We usually went to cantina a lot of times! To order normally or with "studentski boni", but for the last year I always got cold food or you could taste it was prepared in the morning or even before. Especially that happens when there is a lot of people & sory I don't know if I will come back

After asking twice if we were sure we didn't want any food with our cocktails, the manager abruptly said 'I'll bring you bill!', slammed it on the table, and stood there waiting to be paid. They apparently lose money on the cocktails, because they were quite cheap and we were 'send away' for trying to drink some.

We felt like a casual dining experience and liked the look of the build your own tapas option on offer here. The food we chose was all very good particularly the chicken wings and chilitos. We wanted a bottle of wine to go with our food but the menu didn't include wines - however, we asked if they did wines... More

From the outside this looks like a genuine Mexican experience but after eating, its a bit hit and miss. Vegetable fajitas were pretty good but the chimichangas were overloaded with tasteless plastic cheese. It was not only on top but well mixed in withthe filling inside that made it impossible to eat around. A generous offering of my choice of... More

We had lunch here a couple of times and the food was OK, not great but decent enough to come back. The last time however the tomato soup was cold and a bit sour - I would say spoiled. I really like fried potatoes which are part of mostly every main dish. Apart from the soup, main dish was OK.... More

We popped in for lunch with our two kids. We all had Fajitas and the waiter was good enough to point out that two portions was too much for the kids and they could share. The food was amazing and he was right. The total bill was 35€ and we were all stuffed. Wished we had found this earlier during... More

Located opposite the Cutty Sark pub and beside the rooftop terrace restaurant (the name of which escapes me) is this extensive Mexican restaurant serving authentic Mexican cuisine. We loved it so much we went there twice. A word of warning though ... the portion sizes are MASSIVE - we over-ordered .... twice! We cut back on our ordering on the... More

Their food is great (except paella) - I recommend sticky fingers or some other of their delicious dishes. Their cocktails are good too and quite inexpensive. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is nice, just a few steps away from Prešeren square. I definitely recommend visiting it!
