Description: The restaurant Lanterna na Dolcu (Lanterna at the Dolac Market) was opened...
The restaurant Lanterna na Dolcu (Lanterna at the Dolac Market) was opened on 10 September 2010 in the magical atmosphere of an old manor. Brothers Tomislav and Ivan shared the same vision from the beginning - to offer traditional Zagreb food at reasonable prices at a restaurant with a pleasant family vibe. It wasn't long before word about the Lanterna restaurant at the Dolac Market spread all the way to London. Every morning, we get ingredients from Dolac ladies called kumice who sell their produce at the market and we guarantee that each food item used in our kitchen is fresh. The restaurant is located in one of the oldest streets in the city's old centre, in an over 300 years old basement. The restaurant's vaulted ceiling with brickwork that nicely stands out creates a unique and warm atmosphere. It is here that supreme pleasures of traditional Zagreb cuisine blend with scents of history and city legends. Our goal was to combine modern and traditional in both the interior design and on the plate so we browsed through an old cookbook from 1854 that we found in the Zagreb City Museum, looking for ideas. We did not want to exclude authentic Croatian tastes from our dishes, but we also added some unique ingredients to all our traditional menu items.

By far one of the best kept secrets in Zagreb! Food, wine, atmosphere, and attention to detail has been the highlight of the trip thus far.

My friends and I were wondering around Zagreb looking for a place to have dinner. We found Laterna and decided to give it a try -- we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the location is perfect, there is a good-sized patio and the staff was very helpful and attentive. Would highly recommend this place.

This restaurant was my friends suggestion. She told me as soon as I come to Zagreb to stop by. So I did, with a friend of mine. I was simply impressed by the restaurant itself and the staff that serves in it. The atmosphere was pleasant and the waiters were kind and affable. The waiter who was also the owner... More

Lanterna comes highly recommended & didn't disappoint. We had a lovely outdoor table ... there was a great vibe with people laughing & enjoying their meals. Service was great & the staff super friendly & helpful with questions about the menu. Given its reputation for traditional Croatian food we selected from the Croatian specialties.
