If you are looking for the best food experience in Zadar, this is the place to visit. Incredibly tasty food, exellent wine selection, great staff. I will argue every revue of this place complaining about small portions and high prices. This is an exclusive restaurant with only the best of commodities.

Initially we wanted to dine at Fosa but they had to prepare for a wedding reception, so we were rejected :( Nevertheless, we would Restaurant Kastel under Hotel Bastion.

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
