Excellent food served by very friendly staff in this grand, and rather formal restaurant which is in the elegant Esplanade Hotel. Strongly recommend the open lasagne starter served with goat's cheese and truffle cream, and for the main course, seabass baked in sea salt with olive salsa and cured tomatoes. The seabass is served at the table, when the sea... More

We had a great dining experience in Zinfandel's. Teo provided truly exceptional service. If you are a fan of the Zinfandel varietal - then definitely try the Crljenak - now known to be its predecessor (through DNA analysis). The special decanting device (an antique) added to the unique experience (see photo). The food was excellently prepared. Recommend the Štrukli Esplanade... More

Zinfandel's is the best restaurant at which we've dined in our over two weeks in Croatia. My husband had the asparagus soup to start and the steak tartare (our fabulous waiter said it was #427 he's prepared table side in the three years he's been with the restaurant). I had the mint tomato salad, followed by the lamb chops, which... More

The food was very good! Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal and the chef's presentation added to the taste. The service was exceptional. Yes the price is high for Zagreb, but the restaurant décor was elegant and helps make Zinfandel's a good choice for a special occasion.

The location is magical- feels like a garden, overlooking a fountain and reality interrupting with the intermittent, reassuring clank of the trams.... A delicious meal, with perfect flavours, all helped by the tremendous staff.....do follow their recommendations for Croatian wines if you want your whole dining experience enhanced..... The only problem was what to chose from the interesting menu.... You... More

Staff were so attentive, food was delicious, wine was great and the setting is delightful. They also have an extremely comprehensive cocktail menu. If you go, make sure you have the beef tartar - prepared in front of you, it is really a great choice. And meal came to less than £100. Easily as good as the top places in... More
