This is a great place in the heart of the old town for a very reasonably priced lunch. The food is not amazing, but it is relatively basic stuff done well. The home-made soups and pastas were all good, the wines are exceptional, staff and atmosphere always pleasant. Not top of the list in Zadar, but we went 3 times... More

Went a few times while in Zadar and the food and desserts were awesome. The venue is very nice and modern, and for being in a hotel it's reasonably priced and food is great!

We loved this restaurant. Our waitress was fabulous (wish I had gotten her name). The atmosphere is casual but lovely. I ordered a pasta dish with veal and it was absolutely delicious and perfectly seasoned (with strands of "pepper"- perhaps paprika?). My husband ordered the beef salad and it was equally delectable. You should save room for dessert because there... More

for the second time now i visited the restaurant kalelarga a few days ago. after some minutes we got a table for two, stuff was friendly and helpful. in the main season it can happen that the restaurant garden, that is located openly behind old man-high walls, is very noisy due to the activities that happen at edging plaza (music-bands...

This restaurant is at the top end of the Zadar price spectrum but don't let that put you off. The interior is nice but on a good day opt for the outdoor seating which is tucked behind a wall, by the old guard house in the main square, giving it a lovely romantic secluded feel. The service was good and... More

We have been to the following areas (and surrounding) Dubrovnik, Split, Lun, and Zadar, and our best meal thus far has been at this bistro. The presentation of dishes is great and the service friendly and professional. Try the soup made of chickpeas. Delicious and unlike any other soup I've had. The grilled chicken and green gnocchi was fabulous, as... More

The restaurant is located on a nice busy square. The waiter was extremely nice and served us well. The food - we both had pasta - was good but with room for improvement. Nevertheless, the place is recommendable when you're looking for a restaurant in Zadar!

We had a very good meal at the Bistro Gourmet Kalelarga while staying at the Art Hotel Kalelarga. The restaurant has seating both in the hotel lobby area, but they also have a great little area off the main square in this little nook that's partially secldued. Also, hotel guests get a 10% discount, and after arriving late in Zadar,... More

Decor was lovely. Food was lovely. Service was okay. Paid for our meal and the waiter left us short 20kn. We waited for a while to try and get his attention, when we finally got it he came over with the 20kn and said 'sorry, I forgot to give you that'. I don't get how they can give you 60kn... More
