Place had a warm decor and the food was good-value. Menu selection was huge (which is a bad sign sometimes) but the food tasted fresh and seemed like local home-cooking. Pretty cheap as well, probably less than 200 kunas for two people.

We only stayed in Zagreb one night due to the weather, but had we stayed longer we would have come back. There were so many appetizing options on the menu we had to ask for help from the delightfully gruff waiter. He pointed us towards the Pasticada (?) and the Venison stew, and he was bang on. The stew was... More

Our waiter made recommendations for the appetizer which was a meat platter. For our main we had the combination of meats stew which was very tasty. We enjoyed a recommended bottle of wine. Service was very good.

It looks like an old style restaurant but worth eating there - had a lot of dishes but the friendly waiter pointed out the most traditional ones, food very tasty and in large portion - good place to go for dinner if you only have one night in zagreb

We asked the hotel staff for suggestions of where to get authentic regional food. So we went to Stari Fjaker and were immensely pleased with our meal. We began with Zagorski Strukli, cottage cheese in a warm, light dough -- excellent! For our entree, both of us ordered the Slavonian Cobanac, a stew with four different types of meat and... More

Restaurant had re-opened when we visited at the beginning of September. Lots of character and very helpful staff. The cooked ham starter was possibly his favourite and I liked the hearty venison stew. Good wine as well. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Just FYI, this restaurant is closed until the middle of August 2014 because the street is under repair and there is no gas line. (The 5 star review is just because I didn't want to hurt the rating of this restaurant simply for being closed.)

Stari Fijaker is one of my favorite restaurants because it truly celebrates the old-fashioned Croatian culture through interior design and it´s incredible food. The staff represent themselves in a very professional and kind manner which helps you feel at home (which shows true, Croatian hospitality). Stari Fijaker has a great variety on the menu, all that have some connection to... More

My Croatian friend took me here to give me a chance to taste local food. A nice and cozy place with delicious Croatian and Slovenian cuisine. Strange pop music was the only bad part :P

This restaurant is indeed great value for money! The portions are generous, the quality is good and my mother LOVES the bread here. In addition, the food here is truly Croatian! Although the service may not be top notch, the service staff are nice. Recommended indeed!
