The service was attentive but never fussy and... More

Benefits from outside and semi-outside tables, pleasant staff and well produced local dishes and really drinkable Croatian wines. It's not "to die for" but having tried it on night one, we returned on our final night four as we found it... More

Drawn to the promise of local food, we went along to Pet Bunara looking for an authentic Croatian experience. We weren't disappointed. The specials menu offered a couple of traditional dishes to try and the main menu offered a variety of dishes inspired by local produce such as local fig jam. The food was fresh and tasty and the service... More

IIn Pet bunara they don't have 'naked cook' but the one to steal, the one you'd like to have at home. It's in the old town of Zadar and a great break from other obligations,. Anyway, great offer and atmosphere and I often go there, alone or in company - with my family or friends.

We went for an evening meal at Pet Bunara on recommendation from our B&B owners. We weren't disappointed. We had an excellent evening. The food was superb and the local wine also. We sampled various restaurants in Zadar during our stay and it has to be said Pet Bunara came top from our experience.
