I had breakfast here and and the location on the terrace is really lovely. The buffet breakfast had a good selection but I would have preferred freshly squeezed juices. Great coffee and good service

The restaurant is located inside the Esplanade hotel. It has a very elegant ambiance although is also perfect for groups celebrations. The food is simply magnificent. I enjoyed some of the best oysters I've ever tasted and the wine list covers every Croatian region and most international areas.

Not sure whether it was just the food or the combination of the food and wine and surroundings, but I had the best dinner I've ever had in a hotel in Zinfandel's. Food was excellent - the best beef (Charolais) steak and port sauce ever! Intense sauce, succulent and perfectly cooked piece of beef. The dessert was also superb. Staff... More

Good selection of fresh well cooked (prepared in the case of my beef tartare) food. Extensive wine selection. Waiting staff very attentive but in an unobtrusive way. Highly recommended

Just finished our five course tasting menu at the restaurant. Food was outstanding and the service was top notch! If you can afford a splurge, this place is worth it. I had rabbit for the first time and Zinfandel's preparation was outstanding! Fois gras starter was delicious as was the risotto. If you have one evening free while in Zagreb,... More

They prepared a plate with houmous, falafel, grilled vegetables and guacamole with nice bread and I had raviolis with zucchini flower. In short you can ask anything they will do... More
