Pod Zidom Bistro & Wine Bar is located in the very heart of Zagreb, just behind the main square Trg Bana Josipa Jelačića, in quiet and charming Pod Zidom street nearby Dolac market and Zagreb Cathedral. Pod Zidom menu changes seasonally focusing on fresh ingredients from the nearby Dolac market and supporting small local farmers and producers. Depending on the ingredients available at Dolac we create a menu, and every day from scratch we are preparing new fresh dishes. We really care about the "go local" philosophy of joining local ingredients and traditional flavours in the creative, modern presentation of dishes by our Chef.

I miss their tasting menu options but the food, wine (try Malvazija 2015 by Ipsa) and the service were excellent. Their homemade sourdough bread is amazing - it's a shame they don't want to share their yeasts though :)

It's amazing how cheap excellent food is in Zagreb. Pod Zidom keeps this going. Food was amazing, easily keeping up with the finest Bistros in Los Angeles. Highly recommend.

A great-looking place, with great-looking dishes, super-tasty and full of flavor. The presentation is a feast for the eyes. At this price range, my favorite place in Zagreb. We also tried several different glasses of red wine, all interesting. Will be back.

The food was presented as in a deluxe restaurant (small but very nicely arranged on a plate), but the taste simply wasn't equal to the presentation. Because of the small portions and the lack of that exquisite taste, I believe the price was a bit too high. Also they didn't bring us new a cutlery after using it for the couvert (which we btw didn't order but got charged for it).

Food lovely, nice selection of wines. Unfortunately service was very very slow and the waiter served corked wine which we pointed out but were charged for - shouldn’t happen at a wine bar/ bistro.

All that aside, would go again if the service was improved.

Food tasty and nicely presented but too expensive. Waited for food over 40 minutes, delivered beautifully served but cold and small portions (risotto excluded). Ambient cosy and service friendly. Considering the prices and portions, were to scared to order dessert. Overall, won't come back because we left hungry.

Food was amazing considering it is made based on what is available at the local market. Make a reservation because if they fall low on food they do not allow anyone in. Very eclectic and fresh
