We ordered 2 soup, 2 appetizer, 1 main, 2 dessert, a bottle of water and a glass of house wine for 2 person Sweet corn soup - delicious Roasted scallop - probably the most disappointing dish throughout the night, the scallop was overcooked and tasted like rubber Penne fuzi - very good presentation, nicely seasoned and tasted absolutely delicious Desserts...

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

ok it is really expensive for zagreb but we enjoyed it. We are both vegetarians and also they have quite nothing vegetarian on the menu, they improvise some nice dish. 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

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.
