The food was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. The Caesar salad entree was a nice surprise - it had all of the usual Caesar ingredients and yet was served so differently to how it is usually and tasted a million times better. The service was standout with very friendly waiters and a knowledgable and helpful sommelier. Perhaps more expensive than... More

Made reservations thru email before our arrival. We stayed in the hotel and decided to try Croatian fine dining in the best hotel in Zagreb. We were not disappointed. We had a window seat facing the gardens terrace. Superior service, great wine recommendations and well balanced tasty dishes. The Istrain truffle pasta was the best I had for a region... More

Had dinner here, the food was fantastic everything from the wine, and amuse bouche to the entree. Service was average, the first waiter we had was not very helpful in describing the dishes and seemed a bit pretentious. I would still recommend for the food but many other great places in zagreb to eat.

Must be the finest in Zagreb! Ambiance excellent. Cuisine superb. And service even better. Yes, it is on the expensive side, but well worth it for an outstanding experience.

Our dinner at Zinfandel's was the highlight of dining during a two-and-a-half week tour of Croatia, B-H, and Slovenia, at the equivalent of most fine French restaurants. The restaurant is sophisticated, service was splendid, food imaginative and beautifully presented, and the (very) local wines just right. We had the four-course prix-fix menu. This came with a little amuse-bouche and polenta... More

Every June, after a long trip from California, checkin at the wonderful Esplanade Hotel, and a short rest, we go to the Zinfandel downstairs for the world's best strukli and a bottle of delicious Plavac Mali ceremonially poured by the sommelier.
