Good value for money

Nice restaurant in cosy atmosphere. Seemed to be family owned with good traditional food and very welcoming staff. A little bit noisy since there was a group table next to us.

According to the reviews here, I expected much more from this place. For sure it is not bad, but it is really nothing special. Surprisingly, it was almost empty on Saturday evening about 8-9 p.m. which is the usual dinner time. There was only one occupied table except ours and no one else came while we where there, so it...

By first glance it looked a bit empty, but then we went in and downstairs where it is really cozy. The service was impeccable. Food came quite quick and was very tasteful. All in all above expectations. Middle prices, but well worth it.

We have been incredibly lucky during our trip to Zagreb, the first night we had dinner at Vinodol, which was excellent. The second night we had dinner at Lanterna na Dolcu, and this was excellent as well. We came here after reading a lot of nice reviews about the restaurant, but were a bit worried that on a Saturday night... More

We were told as we arrived that it would take a while for food to arrive as it was busy. The waiter was very helpful and supplied bread to keep us ticking over and the food arrived soon anyway! It was delicious and the waiter's witty banter kept us entertained.

Service and food were terrific--and came at an incredibly reasonable price. All told, it was 440 Kuna for three of us, and that includes starter, main, wine and dessert. Staff was very friendly and good to chat with. Best of all, the ambiance of the main dining room was incredible; a beautifully lit underground room with a wine cellar vibe.... More

Had lunch here on a Saturday with two friends. We arrived at around 12:15, the restaurant was empty, we asked if they had a table for us. The waiter asked if we had a reservation and when we said no, he looked quite worried. He went through the reservation book and after 30 long seconds he said "yes we have... More
