This place was a welcomed change to the food we have been eating whilst in Croatia. The menu is more than extensive with more than enough options for everyone. The food is priced reasonably and it is tasty. The sangria is also delicious, go the jug! The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is good. Loved it

We had lunch there just today. The food is great and the portions quite big. Staff was very friendly and attentive, but not annoying. Only bad thing to note is that the entrance is very dark if you just came in off a bright sunny street, your eyes cannot adjust to the dark staircase at the quick enough.

Who would guess this pirate-theme restaurant would serve up enchiladas and burritos?The decor is such that you feel you are in the galley of an old ship. The lunch menu is very reasonable, albeit smaller portions. The regular menu is pricier, but with plenty of food to fill you up. The women in our group especially liked the Enchilada Suisa.... More

The place with the interior and the pirate theme is quite cool, but the food needs to be updated with fresher ingredients. My friend hade a steak and it was very dry and small. My enchilada was just ok. Nothing special about the food unfortunately and far away from authentic mexican food. Prices are average and the portions medium-sized compared... More

Well, I expected more. Very good mark because of the location and decor. I was there with a friend on a monday afternoon, everything was empty and we still waited for the food for too long...

A place where you always feel welcome. Great food with Latin music in the background. Friendly waiters and the best ribs in the world.
