If you want delicious food,served and presented with care in romantic,luxurious ambience go to Zinfandel's! It is definitely one of the best in Zagreb! We had a five course dinner on Valentine's Day and it met our expectations! My favourites were lightly cooked St.Jacobs shells,sea bass and a wonderful risotto wit mushrooms and prosciutto (the head chef Ana is famous... More

We had a lovely dinner at Zifandel. They try very hard (Maybe too hard....) to be like an elegant, sophisticated restaurant. The service is very nice and attentive, the food well curated but not the most memorable... In fact the dessert was quiet bland. The wine cart excellent with high quality croatian and international wines. Overall we had a pleasant... More

I ate dinner here as I stayed as Esplanade hotel. The items seemed a bit pricey but I was hoping they'd be worth it. They staff were not the most welcoming or the warmest but they weren't cold either. They do pay a lot of attention to detail, which is nice, and presentation was impeccable. I had a soup and... More

I visited this restaurant twice during my stay in Zagreb since I had stayed at Esplanade Zagreb Hotel, where this restaurant is. The atmosphere seemed the best for the date and also for the business dinner. The waiters were very friendly and they actually remember us when we visited there for the second time. Really nice restaurant !!

If you want to have a very tasty, high class food in luxurious athmosphere in Zagreb I think Zinfandel is the place.. It is a crown jewel in my opinion. The food, service and the athmosphere was perfect.

I went to Zindafel's tonight with high expectations. I have lived in Zagreb for a couple of months and have not found my favourite restaurant yet. I had been told that Zinfandel's would be a gourmet restaurant but on the basis of tonight's dinner I cannot share the view. As starter I had scallops. I got four tiny ones and... More

I don't know what I remember the most fondly : the perfect tuna tartare or the crayfish consomme...or maybe the tender and delicious charolais filet:-). The only thing that was not up to par was the mille feuille in the desert - not as fresh as I would expect. But it is a small mishap and the chef delivered in... More

The Zinfandel restaurant is worth visiting for the high quality food at a reasonable price. The standards of cooking are very high and the staff very attentive. The beautiful dining room just lacks a bit of atmosphere and personality. It was slightly too formal for me but maybe good for others. The wine waiter is excellent but I would like... More

We had a fabulous dinner at Zinfandel's, our last night in Croatia - one of the two best meals of our entire 3 1/2 week trip. The dining room is lovely and elegant, service is excellent. We were presented an amuse bouche to start (something with octopus, which I didn't try but my husband enjoyed). I had salad and an... More
