    The food and ambience were both top-notch. We shared an amazing beef tartare with bone marrow - so yummy! My porcini, squid ink risotto was delicious and my friend said his lamb was tender and flavourful. The only small comment I would make is that the wait staff rarely returned to refill our wine glasses, and it wasn’t overly busy, so they might have been more attentive. Otherwise, I highly recommend.

    Quiet place just next to the cathedral. Try the Lamb gnocchi if you crave for comfort food!

    Great food and plating! Really enjoyed the burrata and chicken. Bread was fantastic, too. The entrees are very well priced. Both the chicken and lamb belly can with two large portions of protein, we couldn’t eat it all. We would have been just as happy at this price with half the protein on the plate!

    Overall a nice experience, food was very good, unfortunately we had to wait more than one hour for our main courses. If you will come after 9 you might have to wait even more.

    Excellent meal and very attentive, professiinal and friendly service. Great local/ regional wine selection. Some street construction/ building renovation in the area was the only drawback to enjoying the close-up views of the cathedral from the patio table where we were seated. Highly recommend this gem of a small, refined but comfortable eatery.

    A one-page menu with quality local dishes. They will gladly recommend local wines to accompany your dish. Service is at a reasonable pace, which was fine with me. A good note for the desserts, of which there are two. I highly recommend it.

    I had the cucumber cavier to start, was excellent light and refreshing on a Hot Zagreb night. My main was the Trufflel Biftek perfectly cooked Med- rare. Highly recommend The Plavec Mali wine with it. The waiter was friendly and attentive to our needs all and all a must when in Zagreb

    Abbiamo aspettato mezz’ora per mangiare un antipasto . Dopo novanta minuti stavamo ancora aspettando la seconda portata . Abbiamo sollecitato e ci hanno chiesto di aspettare ancora dieci minuti . Così dopo un altro quarto d’ora visto che nessun piatto era arrivato , abbiamo pagato il conto e siamo andati via . Abbiamo speso 50 euro per un antipasto e bevande . Vergognoso!

    When I read the menu I was surprised, it felt more like a winter menu than a summer one. I had the Mackrel to start it was good. The Black Trumpet risotto had amazing flavours, a definite must for lovers of mushrooms but again this is to me a autumn winter dish. My server was knowledgable and recommend good wines.

    As soon as I walked in I felt the waiter had an air of superiority about him. He was pleasant but not genuine. He didn’t say hello just said have you a booking. I believe he thought we didn’t and hence the abruptness. The ambience was nothing special and the outside tables were in a street that I think I’d rather have been hidden from. Food wise the starter of beef tartare was heavenly, they had smoked the beef which I’d never experienced in a a tartar before and it was outstanding. We also tried the mussels which were good but not as good as the tartar. The mains I tried the rabbit lasagne, the lamb and the fish. Portions were good but the fish was lacking something. The lamb and rabbit were very good though, however not exceptional. The dessert was tasty you can’t go wrong with chocolate but again not exceptional. Would I go there again, yes for the tartar but I’d go elsewhere for a main.

    Supruga i ja smo već 4. put u ovom restoranu. I nikad prije nismo bili toliko razočarani. Da, kao i uvijek, izvrsna usluga i zanimljiva hrana, ali ovaj put smo i supruga i ja imali toliko slana jela da je bilo nemoguće jesti. Jako mi je žao što se tako zanimljiv projekt može tako lako upropastiti.

    We are on a work trip and I found this restaurant online. We were happy that we were able to reserve a table on such short notice and we were extremely happy with everything. Our waiter was extremely accommodating and the food was amazing! I had the asparagus risotto and it was just perfect. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Zagreb!
