Had a dinner meal there and it was great value for money. The ambience of the place and quality of food was exceptional. Had a three course meal for 140 kuna(20 Euros). The place is class and service was excellent. Would recommend if whether it not staying at the Hotel Esplanade or when in Zagreb.

If you don't wanna cook and just finished stressfull week, Le Bistro is your place! We went there on Saturday, for a early lunch. Few people who were well mannered made this place quiet and very enjoyable. Food was light and service great!

We were there during a special week of food: 3 courses for 100 Kuna. The food was uniformly good and interesting. The wine was a bit pricey. Service initially was good, but then staff forgot to refill wine glasses. But it's a thumbs up for us. Christie set Murder on the Orient Express in the section from Zagreb to Istanbul.

I can't say much about the usual offer, cause I've visited during Zagreb Restaurant Week, so the menu was limited, and the prices were reduced, but I can say that both the service and the food were great. The place is fancy (and smallish, but actually very cosy) but the waiters were welcoming and warm, neither intrusive nor fake. The... More

I fell in love with this place. I visited it twice! From the minute I walked in, the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. They were also very patient with my order. Upon fiddling with the menu, Monika came and offered me an iPad with all the menu offerings pictured on it--this made it even more difficult to choose something... More

It is more than a snack bar of an hotel. It has a rich menu and original and different dishes. .All of them were very tasty. Ravioie with langustines, Risotto with squid and chessnut soup was among them. The service was also very nice and friendly. The prices are a little high but I guess it is normal for a... More

I am writing here about the beautiful Hotel Esplanade Lobby (Lounge) Bar, which can be reached if you enter the hotel via the Main Door Entrance and then turn left and walk another 4-5 steps before hitting a really cosy place! (this is NOT about the Bistro outside with its own separate entrance which i was never fond of). Okay,... More

I enjoyed my meal, Weiner schnitzel and lovely setting, but definitely NOT worth the price given the quality and price in Zagreb. Lovely wines, which I do not mind paying for, but outrageously small pours. Eat elsewhere.
