Top restaurant!

In general, you shouldn't expect high cuisine in Croatia, which is why you should come to Tipico old town. There where a tipical croatian restaurant will serve you local meet with fries or simple pastas or pizzas, you need to search for the better places. And you find that in Tipico Old town. They were able to serve a dish... More

It is good homemade food, but nothing more and nothing less. Whether or not it deserves it's ranking is hard to determine, but I won't say this is fine dining and for sure not the best in Croatia.

Expected a lot more given the rave reviews. We found the food a bit basic really, in no way would I call it gourmet, as some have. Entrecote was a bit chewy, sea bass in limoncello sauce was not very limoncello-y, pork and bacon with mushroom sauce was rather bland, small cubed potatoes were neither roasted or boiled. Desserts nothing... More

I went there for dinner a few days ago, with three friends. I had read incredible reviews about Tipico, so I decided to give it a go. Impressive. We had an excellent white Malvasia wine, which worked great with the fish dishes we ordered. As starters we had risotto with rocket, dried tomatoes and shrimps and tagliatelle with truffle, mushrooms... More

Young, friendly staff, they found us a table in the evening rush hours. The food is delicious, a bit new and gourmet, absolutely not the tipical tourist meals.

Tipico Old Town is not like other restaurants in the area. It is relaxing, informal and run by friendly young people. The food is excellent and the selection of wines is very good. If you are not sure, ask for recommendation which wine goes with your food - they will be happy to assist. We had sword fish and chef's... More

I know a lot of reviews advise you to book but, as busy as it was, we were fortunate enough to get a table without booking or having to wait. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming and showed us through to a tiny courtyard at the rear of the restaurant. We started with a HUGE cheese and meat platter,... More

Went in yesterday for lunch and was pleased to find a laid back and laconic atmosphere absent the rush and craze of tourists. I was greeted by the waitress who was throughout very pleasant and amicable. For all of the reviews across the site that recount serving staff offering suggestions and recommendations I have yet to come across the same.... More

First piece of advice: Make a reservation. My husband and I wandered in on a Wednesday night during high tourist season, and managed to snag a table in 30 minutes. After being seated there for about 20 minutes, we saw how lucky we had been to get the table, after hordes of potential patrons were turned away. The place is... More
