After wandering Lower Town for the better part of an hour searching for a suitable place to dine, we happened upon this no-name restaurant. The windows are labeled Stella Artois Pub. We asked our server about the name, and he said it's Zadar. Yet it's listed on TripAdvisor as VIP Cafe Bistro Pizzeria (with the wrong address and the right... More

We went to ViP almost straight off the plane and had a fantastic lunch. Generous fresh fare, yummy cocktails and a ringside seat to watch the world go by and acclimatise to Zagreb. Try to avoid tables with smokers if you don't like the smell, we had to get used to that during our stay.

Having just arrived in the city tired and hungry from our travels, it seemed we wandered the streets for ages looking for a place that served food. Lots of coffee and drinks places, but limited sit down restaurants. We ate indoors in a lovely large dining room downstairs. Our server, Ivanic, was very friendly and helpful, explaining menu items.

The location is perfect for people watching. The service was good and they have a great list of cocktails. The mushroom soup, bruschetta 'various' and omelettes are very tasty. There are many open air places to eat but not many of them serve food as well. So, if you're looking for a meal and a drink, this is a very... More

My friend and I were wandering the Main Square of Zagreb looking for somewhere nice to eat dinner and we stumbled across this cool-looking bar with neon across its bar. The waiter greeted us straight away and helped us with the menu, showing items that looked delicious. We were seated and they were very attentive. Cocktails were yummy, as was... More

One of the best food and drink places in Zagreb. They make the best pizza in the whole of Zagreb. Service is on spot, as it should be. Owners of other food and drink places in Zagreb should visit them and learn how job is done.

We started going to this place a few years back and, as it was cold the first time we went there, we sat downstairs indoors and ordered pizza. It was so nice that we never changed that – we still order pizza and sit downstairs every time we visit. We should probably try sitting outdoors, too. They don’t serve the... More

It was our first restaurant we ate at in zagreb when we arrived and we made it a point to visit it on the way back when we had a one night stopover in zagreb. The staff were brilliant and the food or at least what we ordered was tasty. For the quality of food I can easily say its... More

The restaurant has tables on the outside so you can enjoy the weather and the view. They have good plates and prices. You can enjoy a good meal on a nice place with good service.
