For the meat you cannot choose a better place!!

Beautiful place with excellent food. We have been there in 2014 and we had a great evening. The service is fast and the waiters are friendly and the price is correct too.

For anybody who loves a great steak this is the place to be in Zadar. During our holidays in Zadar my wife and I went to Rafaelo. I had the T-Bone-Steak and my wife the mixed grill plate. The steak was simply one of the best and tastiest t-bone steaks I ever had. They made it perfectly.

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner after having recommended by our local host who eats there. It's not fine dining so don't expect it, but service was fine for us and the food was tasty. We got the meat plate to share and some of the house red wine. The wine was nice and the meat plate was... More

From my review of last year I was in Rafaelo several times in summer and winter, and never once did not disappoint. The food is always superb, there are absolutely no differences in the quality / quantity and I will always be happy to return to Zadar the best meat restaurant. Congratulations.

Hearty portions, tender meat that is cooked to order. Prices are acceptable, especially considering other restaurants along the coast. Chocolate cake for desert was great, juicy and smooth with a subtle hint of carribean black rum. Recommendations - raznjic Mu, plata Rafaelo and any kind of steak, including especially fresh tuna steak with potato salad

This is by far the best restaurant in Zadar. It is away from the crowds with seaview. All dishes are delicious, best barbecue I'm sure. Meat is fresh and tender..you will be going home with leftovers :) oh, and they serve hand cut french fries!!

Hands down the best place in Zadar if you are a meat eater. Beautiful harbor view, massive portions, home made fries, and incredible steak...

This restaurant was recommended so we thought we would give it a try. It has a lovely outdoor terrace overlooking the boats, and a nice size indoor dining room also. We both found the quality of the food to be excellent, but what amazed us most was the quantity you will receive. I had a cordon bleu which could have... More

Meat was delivered with a sauce that was not mentioned on the menu. Steak quality was OK but not comparable to a streak house. My expectation of a filet Mignon was different to what I got.
