I was passing Zagreb, and wanted to go somewhere near the city center and also wanted to park close to the restaurant. After a quick chat with policewoman (very friendly) she said there is a restaurant just a few meters ahead and a parking garage that is also close by. Parking garage was easy to find and it was just... More

This is real Zagreb food in a real Zagreb atmosphere. I highly recommend the hearty and flavorful Lungic na zaru - a grilled pork loin also available filled with ham & cheese. Seriously good food and service.

I have been traveling around Croatia and Slovenia. This was the most expensive and least pleasant meal of all. Confusing and unclear menu, no allergenic highlights, wifi just didn't work at all, no beer variety, food way bellow expected by restaurant's looks and the price was shocking: for much less than that I had a superior meal in a restaurant...

I ate at Stari fijaker several times, because it is a great choice if you want to have a tasteful meal served very fast. I love their 'sarma' and baked duck with 'mlinci', as it reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen. The location is nicely and authentically decorated, and all the staff is really kind, helpful and experienced. Don't miss... More

A little bit on too much “old and traditional”, one more level of modern would not hurt it. It has heavy and traditional food, so this place is more for people who like to “eat more”, taste is old and heavy mostly.

There was nothing wrong with Stari Fijaker, but we just didn't have a very memorable meal. The grilled mushrooms appetizer was good, but was just a plate of mushrooms drowning in butter. My 'Beef Stew Dalmatia Style' wasn't really stew, just some beef with gravy on a plate with gnocchi on the side. I figured a stew would at least... More

We went here looking for authentic Croatian cuisine and while the dishes offered on the menu are authentic, we felt like each dish was so heavily salted that it was hard to notice any other flavor. The exception was the strukli; it was very good!

Variety of local dishes prepared in original home made way. Everything we eat - from bread, pastries, meat and dessert was fresh and home made, like at "grandma's house". Recommended: venison stew with home made gnocchi. Extremelly good value for money.

Had dinner there yesterday with my wife. She's from Croatia but never lived there. All the dinner she was having those "madeleine de proust" moments while eating her sarma! Food was very tasty and also it's not a rip off. 2 beers and 2 enormous dishes for 150kn only. Very friendly staff, with very good advices, recommended us what to... More
