We decided to splash out on a nice restaurant for the night in zadar - and really wanted to get some good seafood so we went here expecting a lot. I got the stuffed squid and it was really tough and salty - I found a hair in the potato and veg dish and then we were charged extra for... More

This restaurant is part of the Hotel Bastion, which is located opposite of the Arsenal, beautiful terrace at the top. I dined on the lower terrace, which was really quite lovely – a great atmosphere between staff and customers. Service was top-notch excellent, and the food was fabulous. I had chicken stuffed with prosciutto and cheese. The dish was really... More

Lovely late lunch on the cool terrace. I had fresh fish with a great vegetable/creamed vegetable dish, delicious. Hubby had the BEST homemade ravioli ever! We were the only ones dining in the sleepy town on a sunny Sunday so the service was very attentive!

Lovely restaurant in Hotel Bastion. Food was amazing. Three dishes stand out: foie gras creme brûlée was insanely wonderful and huge; special pag lamb knuckle was unlike any lamb we had ever tasted; fig and marscapone dessert was incredible. Service was fabulous with sample tasting of three different wines before we settled on the highly recommended silver medal merlot. Would... More

I am a big fan of Trip Advisor. I depend on reviews and I write them. Tonight was my wife's birthday, so I wanted to take her and our friends to a great restaurant. We went to Kastel the top rated restaurant in Zadar. The decor is splendid so our expectations were high. We have been in Croatia for ten... More

It's easy to see why this is the top-rated restaurant in Zadar. In fact, it's rated both first and second, due to a confusing listing under the name of the Hotel Bastion in which it resides. At any rate, my lunch was the best meal I've had in Croatia. It was also the most expensive, though cheap by Parisian standards,... More

Top quality food, superbly cooked and served by a really good front of house team (you forget what a difference a really good waiter makes until you get one). I had a seafood gnocchi to start, duck leg as a main course and a fruit and nut semi freddo for dessert. L had ravioli in this kind of panettone broth,... More
