Wasn't great, we waited to be sat at a table and the wait staff ignored us for a few minutes, avoiding eye contact at all costs even though they weren't busy. We persisted. Anyway, the food wasn't great, my steak was frozen and not fresh, and wasn't cooked the way I wanted it. Would probably avoid this place for Kalelarga,... More

Dear TravelpantsTang from London, United Kingdom Thank you for your review. I believe that your review is very suspicious. Firstly, when our customers are seated we do that on a clean table. Therefore you need to wait a few minutes. Secondly, we have ONLY aged steaks (not frozen) and we fried/grill them (so; not “cooked“). And finally, if you really... More

we cannot compare yet with other restaurants, as we are for the first time in Croatia - but it's good, nice service, and seems ok priced for a tourist place like Zadar. We shared a "smoked ham" sterted, which was really enough for 2, and I had as main dish a nice piece of duck. As dessert, the local fig... More

My wife liked pasta she had there. I had traditional pasticada and must say that based on the reviews it didn´t meet my expectations at all. Meal recomended for kids included rather chewy meat. Sorry to say, but... nice place - average food - higher prices.

Dear Radovan C from Prague, Czech Republic Thank you for your review and my sincere apologies that we did not meet all of your expectations. Hopefully, we would do that next time. However, regarding prices... sorry to say but... for avoiding this kind of communication we did have exposed the whole menu with prices at front of the restaurant. Regards,... More

I had the fish filet and my boyfriend had the beef. Both of them were some of the most pricey on the menu, but money well spent! Delicious orange sauce with the fish. Good wine and desert. Good service. Overall a really nice restaurant experience. Would definetely reccomend it to others!

We were so hot when we stopped in that we immediately drank through a carafe of water. Then we were very happy to order our delicious meal of octopus salad to start. John ordered the duck with breaded gnocchi and I had the scampi ravioli. They were both delicious but a little rich, so we did the old "switcheroo" and... More

We went here because it was high up on trip advisor rankings for restaurants in zadar. Big mistake. The gnocchi were inedible, 4 pieces of ravioli formed a main course, the outside tables are next to a carpark. Every other place we ate at in Croatia was fantastic, so it was such a shame that we chose Pet Bunara for... More

Dear LucyWH Thank you for your FIRST review EVER on TA. “Every other place in Croatia was fantastic…” however we were not? So tell me which restaurant do you prefer or you can just say the name of your restaurant in Zadar? This is certainly the wrong way to emphasise your business. Best regards, Vladimir More

great food, away from the crowds and the usual fare on offer. Only downside one pushy waiter trying to sell expensive wine when the house wine is more than ok
