    Great food, great service, great experience. Only negative aspect is that we had to sit on a high table which was not quite comfortable and too small.

    The starters were really nice. We ordered mackerel starter, and raw amberjack. Both starters were really good! We order the "open lasagne with rabbit stew. This was nice, but my partner was not happy with the Horseradish volute, as he felt there was too much of it on his plate. I was more fortunate, as the waiter poured most of it on his plate. I think they should leave it on the table, and so that client can do it themselves and maybe control it better. The desert did not appeal to us as we were well fed. The wine list is expensive but extensive, and we had a fab wine to go with our meal. The waister was attentive and spoke really good English. Thank you. It is a really nice place. The decor is nice and cosy, and the lighting is low and sexy. Great for a date or a romantic diner, as long as they keep the big tables away from you! Overall, I would score it a 7 out of 10! Thank you for the experience.

    The dishes have the components of becoming great, but the actual execution does not match the price. The tartare was hard to eat, it did look nice and taste well, but it was hard to eat; the toasted bread was too greasy, and I had to wipe my hands after each bite. The beef cheeks were a bit hard, so they could have been done a bit more as they should be melting in your mouth - these did not do that. The rabbit dish was heavy on pasta, but the sauce did not stick to it, so it means it was hard to eat again. This dish lacked a bit of flavor to it, but it did have a nice composition and presentation. The wine list was great, although the wines were quite expensive per glass, even though the bottles were not special vintages. The service lacked the presentation of the wines as the wines were not shown at all. Rather you get a glass without seeing the bottle. The dishes were presented ok. I would not recommend this to my friends as the price is not justified. We had 1 starter 2 main dishes 1 bottle of water 4 glasses of wine 1 dessert It was 100 euros - So for this type of quality it should be half that amount, I do understand its the inflation and what not, but they need to up their game in the kitchen department.

    I stumbled upon this place by chance but am very impressed. One of the best meals I have had in a while and the service was superb. The food was excellent and so was the choice of local wines by the glass. I shall definitely be back next time I am in town.

    I wanted to try regional Croatian food. Every dish was deliciously executed. The meat was on perfect term. The pairing wine excellent and thankful because was local. Were big portions in my opinion. Highly recommended! It deserves the Michelin star they are trying to get!

    Make reservations if you want comfortable seating that is not bar stool level. If one is short like me, bar stools are not comfortable. The wines are excellent and the menu is seasonal. October started to get a little cold. The staff had no problem with moving our reservation inside.

    Pod Zidom is a gem. The first thing to say is that the food is superb. The chef is creative, and his dishes are both interesting and delicious. They compete with restaurants we have visited with much more expensive menus and greater acclaim. The space is very tastefully appointed and comfortable, and the service is very good. Our server, Alen, was attentive, knowledgeable, and very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit--so much so that we returned two nights later for a second meal. Highly recommended if you happen to be in Zagreb.

    We had a great time. The food was excellent. We had different starters, mains and desserts and all of them were really good. Wine list also had a good variety of wines. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. It is a bit loud due to all the construction works close to the restaurant ( we were seating outside). Overall a great experience!

    Located just next door to the Zagreb city market, this charming place offers a fine dining experience with local ingredients and fresh produce. Homemade pasta and bread and a wide selection of wine per glass is what will have me there over and over again. Highly recommended.
