This is a great place if you are mexican food lover. It is not expensive and the staff is great. You can celebrate your birthday there or have a dinner just for two. You won't regret it!

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.

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.
