The waiter, ambient and food were excellent. The food was served to us really fast (15-20 min.). The tortilla snack were served before actual meal with three types of sauces.

Last night I took my American family to Mex Cantina for drinks and some food. Margarita was way too sour, Long Island ice tea had no ice tea in it and was RED, chicken quesadilla was a size of a small plate. The only good thing was decent guacamole and chips.

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...
