The interior is very interesting and the service was great and the prices were ok. However, we weren't pleased with chimichangas, especially compared to the ones we ate at another mexican restaurant in Zagreb.

The interior looks like a pirate ship - very fun. Our food took a long time, but once it arrived we were happy to find out it was delicious and the portions were huge. Reasonably priced.

The food here is soooo good! The portions are huge and the staff is very friendly and always happy to help. I have tried a lot of foods from the menu and every single thing was great and tasty. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal and experience.

Nice concept -when you enter, it looks like you are entering the pirats boat. Wood, darknes, nets, pirate maps... Food was very good, large portions, spicy. But the service was very slow, long time waiting for food, the toilets were dirty... With a little bit more carenes, it could be exellend.

I have visited ur restaurant once per year and for last 3 years your service is declining. I haven't eaten black pancakes in last 3 years since u r always without them.

We chose to go there after seeing its menu online. The surrounding was a great surprise. It was like boarding an old ship. Apparently we were early for dinner but the only waiter helped us right away. We enjoyed all of our dishes. My husband was particularly happy with the amount of chilli in his choice. Close to our leave... More

Very good restaurant close to the city centre. Dining room fitted to resemble the interior of a pirate ship. The food and wine were excellent and the service efficient. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. An ideal venue for a relaxed meal in a pleasant atmosphere.

We were here on our last night in Croatia and really wanted to eat some Mexican. The ambience was great and the food was amazing! Lot of vegetarian options too.

Walked in with a friend while traveling to Split and enjoyed an amazing meal and drinks before our overnight train. Bruno and his partner and chef were excellent hosts and their food was even more outstanding! I'm from Southern California and have had my share of great Mexican-style food, and these guys really nailed it. I highly recommend a visit.

Thank stevedgordon
