I cannot say that there was anything special in the food, but it was quite delicious, fresh and the service was really good.

Delicious food and big portions. Friendly waiters, but seemed a bit busy although the restaurant was almost empty at that time of the day. Interior was interesting, Latin spirit and music inside.

In my opinion best mex food place in Zagreb. Good food. Good service. But a bit overpriced. Especially beverage prices which are over the top (beer).

I can't remember the last time I have exited any restaurant so dissapointed with food... Even though "Mex Cantina" is opened for years, it was never on my "to go" list in Zagreb. The waiter was polite, patient, not pushy. One of those who serve you food, ask was it OK, offer you a dessert and that's it. Don't expect... More

We pre-ordered food at for a specific time at this resturaunt, as one of our colleagues had a tight 90 mins lunch break. The resturant seems decorated well, tucked away from the main road, with it's own carpark. When we arrived, we waited a while to be seated, then told that they had packed our food to go. When they...

I've been here a coupl of times and I have to say that it is a great mexican for being in Croatia. I travelled many time in Mexico and I think that the level of the food the atmosphere and the service is defintely comparable.

We had a quick meal at Mex. The tortillas were tasty and quiet big, we were also surprised by the free chip tortillas which were great with the provided sauces. The food was delicious and the service was good as well. The prices are a little bit high but worth the amount of food you get.

It used to be a restaurant with the good food and decent service. However that was couple of years ago. Today, the food is almost cold, the service is confused or better to say demotivated and the prices remained the same. You need to talk to three or four waiters to get the drinks or food on your table. All... More
