Place is fully decorated in mexican style and atmosphere is really great. Mexican music, mexican beer, staff dressed like mariachi... It's all Mexico around you ! Food is also very very good, tasty and portions are huge. Anything you order, for sure you will not regret. Fully recommended restaurant. :)

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.

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
