The atmosphere, service and food are great. I usually eat enchiladas or fajitas and they are always delicious. The prices are a bit high (for Croatians), especially desserts, but the portions are large and you get free bowl of tortilla chips with 2 or 3 types of sauce while you are waiting for your meal.

Tried to have nice dinner with friends and regret it. First when we sat down, we waited for a waiter for nearly 20 mins just to have a menu. After that we waited about half an hour to get a meal. And to be honest, we'll be better not to had that meal in a first place. I had pork... More

So the food is nice, their Mexican beer selection is all right, and the portions are big. However, the use of wheat flour tortillas in dishes where corn tortillas are a must definitely make the experience not so good. When I made the comment to the waiter on how to improve the Enchiladas Queretanas (And all other by using corn... More

I am the biggest fan of mexican food and drinks, and in Zg this is the best place for it! Although is not cheap and not everyone can afford it. Prices are too high for this kind of food, cuz you can easy make it at home or eat it in fast food restaurants around the city. I love the... More

The only reason I ended up here again is to get my margarita fix! It is as bad as ever. Only for the locals who are clueless about any kind of ethnic cuisine here. And the prices keep going up.
