Finding a good restaurant in Zadar can be a bit overwelming. There's are just too many to choose from! But just before you then decide to go for the obvious, an easy pizza, go and have a look at the small restaurant Tinel. Don't let...More

Responsibly priced for such lovely big meals! My brother had a steak smallest being 720g and he loved it and I had a salad, the salad wasn't as big but it was perfect for me. The only criticism I had, and this was me being...More

situated in a smaller street next to the mainstreet, the restaurant offers a nice quiter terrace. We had very good black risotto and perfect pasta with clams as starters. Mains were excellent John Dory with truffle sauce and good thin crust pizza.

Welcome to Tinel! Enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient Zadar town on the peninsula mixed with all the buzz of the near-by piazza, the Zadar’s main square.In the old Dalmatian homes, the room used for socializing and relaxation was referred to as “tinel”. In Italy and in the South of France it is the name used for dining rooms or refectories. So what a better place to experience Mediterranean and Dalmatia, the history of the old-age towns built from stone and gastronomical secretes of their residents, then in the very center of the over three thousand years old town of Zadar.Restaurant TINEL is a restaurant, a bistro, a pizzeria and a spaghetteria. It is a casual and relaxed eatery, with friendly crew and excellent chefs. We offer traditional Mediterranean and Dalmatian cuisine with a touch of creativity and contemporary themes. Whether you look for pasta, pizza, salads, meats or fish, you will find it here. Join us, relax and enjoy… TINEL is the place for the good mood and the great food.
