We had a 5 course menu starting with scallops which were very good. Truffle risotto was tad over-salted, which was a shame as it really affected otherwise very good second course. Cod in cuttlefish ink over broad beans was OK, but nothing more than OK. Venison served on my plate was good, however my friend complained, and I took a... More

On our first night staying at the Esplanade Hotel we dined at Zinfandels Restaurant. I cannot give this restaurant enough praise and definitely suggest anyone who is visiting, whether they are stopping at the hotel or not to dine here. The staff were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. My partner and I love to sample the local wines when travelling... More

Service and decor of restaurant was great. Food was merely ok. Their wine selection was also not too extensive. Only the most famous American and French wine available, outside of their local wines. Not worth the price.

This is what I would recommend first in the Hotel: The Zinfandel Restaurant. Although they have a reasonable selection on californian wine, I would suggest you explore local wines with the help of the experienced sommellier. The fish they served was great. So was the service!

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.

Zagreb can be expensive for high dining without delivering the experience. Well this place is not one of them. This restaurant lives up to its reputation and heritage as an stop of the orient express. The small but varied menu offers up enough to fit all comers who are looking for high dining.

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
