“Average”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Food is average, portions are too big. Service is slow and music is too loud for a dinning place. Place looks cozy with wooden interior.

“Standard Mexican fare”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Billed in one of the guide books I had as "the best Mexican in the former Yugoslavia". We found it to be exactly what you would expect from an average Mexican restaurant - no complaints but nothing amazing either. Would recommend to people who like this type of food but on reflection we would liked to have tried something different. As the day in question was my birthday I chose so I guess I should blame myself!

“Not for the food but for the ambiance”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

The food is not really good, everthing on the menu tastes alsmost similar. You should go here for the atmosphere, to see and meet people. Friday evening's this is the place to be.
