Description: "Restaurant AGAVA" - a place where fine dining truly meets a casual atmosfere. This is very special place, a bit hidden, a bit shy...A classic Italian restaurant filled with subtle dark colours and distinctive lightning. Wide windows provide an unique view, and in spring and summer the green terrace will attract you immediately. The restaurant was opened in 2005. It is runned by Belizar Milos (owner/partner) who is also the main chef, responsible for many mediterranean delices and beyond. So, come to the number 39 of Tklaciceva street... It'll take you 39 staircases to come to your little hiding place.

I came here with my fiancé and we were so excited because we heard so many great things about this restaurant, however we left feeling very disappointed. First let me say, the service is AMAZING! The wait staff is extremely knowledgable, friendly and welcoming. All of our food came out in a timely manner which was nice too. The restaurant... More

Only the Orange onion something was tasteless. Service very polite and well speaking English. Atmosphere good, but too... More

The location in the old Town area was an excellent choice for early dining. The view looking over the street is a plus. We had an excellent waiter that helped with the menu and made you feel relaxed.

Between the 3 of us, we had the French Onion Soup (very good), Baked Octopus, Risotto (bits of pear in it- delicious), and bread/olive oil, We sat all afternoon high... More

However, we were really disappointed. We had the ham and cheese appetiser with foccacia, the pasticada and the baked octopus as recommended by the server. The... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Zagreb, offering good wines (opened) and tasty food. Service is good, but maybe a bit too pushy.

Agava is a nice fine-dining Trattoria with an easy-access location in the center (Tkalciceva street) serving Italian and local specialties. It has a decent wine list with mostly local and intl selections. The waiter helped us a lot to arrange a table because we didn't make a reservation. I strongly recommend to taste "Fuži" which is a traditional Croatian pasta... More
