    I was very pleased with everything I had, the food, the wine, the nice table outside with a pretty view to the cathedral (I got lucky) But outstanding was the waiting stuff. I will definitely come back, next time I am in Zagreb

    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!

    All our host's recommendations were closed on Sunday night, which is why we discovered this restaurant. The food was outstandingly good. Imaginative combinations, generous portions and brilliant cooking. I ate the slow cooked beef cheek and my partner had the venison. We also had memorable starters which were good sized portions and excellent. Wine was available from a long list by the glass, which enabled us to sample a range, and by eating inside we were able to avoid the outdoor smokers. The location was very easy to find, close to the cathedral.

    So close and yet so far! By the end of the first course, I was so ready to give this place an unequivocal 5 stars. Our waiter (a lovely bearded fella with a penchant for breaking stuff) was friendly, attentive, welcoming and efficient and the 3 starters that the 2 of us shared (the amberjack, the tartare and the burrata) were exceptional. The flavours were beautifully balanced, the textures were exquisite and I really couldn’t make up my mind which I preferred. They were all great! The wines had been great too, 1 a little off piste but generally tasty and interesting. Then came the mains and the influence of the other waiter! The lamb gnocchi was good but swamped in blue cheese flavour and the open lasagne was nothing but a huge splat of dense pasta with a little bit of unbelievably bland ragu. Topped off with the other waiter who shall be only described as “not the one with the beard” being brusque, arrogant, dismissive and rude and it really put a dampener on the evening. The desert (Tartine) was good, not amazing but solid and enjoyable. A 5 star place should have great service all round and be able to keep the taste buds interested course after course and this place just didn’t quite deliver. If I could give a half star, I’d probably go 4.5 but as that was definitely not a 5 star evening, I have to go with 4. Definitely go to the restaurant, try and get a table with the bearded wonder, avoid the pasta dishes and you’ll be golden!

    Expected more from my favorite place. The reservation was excellent, got a call from restaurant referring to my note, accordingly expected menu in english. However, menu was provided in Croatian. Expected offering vege meal as per my note and the call. The ordered salad was forgotten, however compensated with the desert on house. Expected some recommendation for a drink (vine, or so).
